Or, how the leap was made from spy satellite to keyholes are falling......

Or, the spokesman had to speak from anonymity due to security?

Or how the writer segued from discussing spy satellites to NASA missions without drawing any distinctions between them?

FTFA:

Jeffrey Richelson, a senior fellow with the National Security Archive, said the spacecraft likely is a photo reconnaissance satellite. Such eyes in the sky are used to gather visual information from space about adversarial governments and terror groups, including construction at suspected nuclear sites or militant training camps. The satellites also can be used to survey damage from hurricanes, fires and other natural disasters.

The largest uncontrolled re-entry by a NASA spacecraft was Skylab, the 78-ton abandoned space station that fell from orbit in 1979. Its debris dropped harmlessly into the Indian Ocean and across a remote section of western Australia.
The connotation is that NASA is involved with this spy satellite, which is simply false.

Submission + - Amazon Joins Apple in the DRM-Free Music Movement

dour power writes: According to this blog post on the Washington Post web site, DRM-free MP3s will soon be available for purchase from amazon.com. As is the case with Apple's iTunes Music Store, the only publisher onboard at this point is EMI. This could be the beginning of the end of having to consult a lawyer in order to legally manage our digital music collections. MPAA, are you paying attention?
