Report from Bill Still
The US military has satellites in the air all over the globe scanning everything 24/7/365.
For decades now they've been bragging that on a clear day they cannot only see the golf ball, they can also read what brand it is.
There are two possibilities:
1. Their claims are total bullshit (always a distinct possibility)
2. Their claims are true.
If they're true, how can you lose track of an airplane that size?
Answer: You never lost track of it. They know exactly where it is
and have known all along.
