You may recall that back in 2007 the Bush administration had plans to use spy satellites to look in on Americans from above using ultra high resolution cameras.  And just to prove that the Obama administration is at least a few diet pills short of a weight loss plan, this program WAS included in The Obama administration’s 2010 budget request.

Fortunately for the rest of us and our privacy, the program apparently never got off the ground and now the new head of Homeland Security has decided to cut those plans entirely.

I’d like to say that’s the last we’ll hear about such things but I seriously doubt that’s true.
