Since when did images of OUR planet, not the Governments planet.. OUR's, thanks.. become a commodity? Why should a government/big corp be able to
almost exclusively corner the market in aerial/satt photos and charge for us to see them?
"Here.. here's what we want you to believe is down there."
-- "But wait.. that doesn't make sense. I know there's [insert] at that location. I've seen it with my own eyes and I've seen other pictures of
"Oh, we blurred that out because we can. You have to pay us for a clear resolution picture of that spot."
"Oh, and.. as far as that other
area you were referring to? You didn't see what you thought you saw. We promise
you're wrong and we
have your best interest at heart in keeping these images from you."
-- "I.. don't understand."
"That's because you're not meant to. Leave it in our hands, we'll [insert] you over slowly
so it wont seem so bad at the time."
Flabbergasted, I say. Just flabbergasted. FOIA should include imagery of our planet.
Oh, you have a top-secret base there? TFB. You either release all the info or expect a [insert]storm when people figure out there's some you're
holding back and you're not giving a good reason as to why. I feel like I just heard a 'Trust the Government, they'll never do you wrong' argument
in the replied-to post.
