Apperently, the United States is preparing for some sort of attack. It could be offensive or defensive. The United States has developed satillites capable of jamming only ground to satillite transmissions. This could be used to disrupt and attack on the U.S. or it could be used to disrupt a countries transmissions while we invade.
The US has created electronic-warfare squads capable of jamming enemy satellite transmissions. Fearful of losing its advantage of superior technology resources over its potential enemies, the US has established mobile teams equipped with electronic jamming gear capable of disrupting attempts to interfere with its satellite resources, The Washington Times reports.

The US Space Command has a responsibility to accessing military threats. "We understand that jamming has gone on and other things have occurred, and we watch that very closely," Gen. Lord said. "If somebody is trying to use space against us, we could interrupt, in a reversible kind of way, those kind of capabilities as needed and as directed by US policy."

Anti-satellite weapons are currently limited to jamming signals sent from the ground to satellites that try to disrupt US military or civilian spacecraft, Gen. Lord concluded.

I do believe that the satillites are capable of much more than what the military has told us. Also, by the fact that the U.S. has deployed mobile teams equiped with disruption equopment, I am willing to bet that the U.S. is willing to got to the point of war to be the first to have this technology up and running.
