  1. It crossed my mind to post your home address and pics of your house, but than I thought,
    ‘That’s really not who I am’.

    1. @Cillian: Here’s who I am. You are banned. Doxxing or even the threat of doxxing is prohibited. And if you don’t understand the difference between doxxing an individual and a journalist informing the public of the location of government facilities, far be it from me to teach you

  2. Interesting topic. Evidently re-assessment of the Kyl-Bingaman amendment has been under consideration for some time. That KBA re-assessment apparently has nothing to do with ‘liberalization’ of the data or any governmental move for transparency. The reason this restriction on satellite imagery has lapsed is because such imagery from the private sector is ubiquitous enough that the KBA is not only arcane but also an irrelevance (and difficult to enforce). Called a ‘restriction’ I can find no evidence that a prosecution or sanction for violating the KBA restriction has ever happened, just doing a mild bit of research. Now, some sites refer to the KBA initiative being passed due to ‘breaches of secrecy within the Clinton admin’ …. a brief attempt at researching that resulted in nothing much too. Of course Clinton was in serious political hot water by 1997 so looks like the KBA was just another opportunistic moment? Interesting too that via Rosaviakosmos Sovinformsputnik Russia also restricts the resolution of imagery wrt Israel. Now there is an old adage: “If you’ve done nothing wrong what have you got to hide?” Clearly Israel has a guilty feeling about something to need such secrecy….? I wonder what that could be? 🙂 Thank you.
