A Chinese satellite looking into the mysterious disappearance of Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 "observed a suspected crash area at sea," a Chinese government agency said -- a potentially pivotal lead into what has been a frustrating search for the Boeing 777.If a Chinese satellite found the debris and not a U.S. satellite -- as Reuters noted on March 9, "An authoritative U.S. government source ... said U.S. satellite coverage of the region is thorough" -- then I expect more winger commentary like this at Free Republic:
China's State Administration for Science, Technology and Industry for National Defense announced the discovery, including images of what it said were "three suspected floating objects and their sizes." The objects aren't small at 13 by 18 meters (43 by 59 feet), 14 by 19 meters and 24 by 22 meters....
China's photographic interpreters are better than ours?Missing in that Free Republic thread so far: the notion that the plane was shot down by people Obama considers allies, which is why our satellites disn't find the wreckage. But that's coming.
Ours are working for the Obamadork.
Anyone working for the Obamadork is stupid, ill educated, and possesses the morals of a slime mold.
Ergo......yup, they are better than ours.
NO ours are too busy spying on what your doing on your computer and at your house....
We need a high-flying plane with modern imaging radar -- one that can penetrate up to 100 feet below the surface of the ocean -- to find this plane. Maybe it's time to call in the U-2S based at Beale AFB to find it once and for all.
Sorry, the King has cancelled the U-2's. Can't afford the fuel. Sorry.
Spy satellites are pretty sophisticated. If China’s found the wreckage, it's an intelligence coup for them. Like others here have said, our Sats are busy monitoring car movements of Tea Party members.
