Law Enforcement Will Get Spy Satellite Data

Source: Crime and Justice News. August 16, 2007.

"The Bush administration will give law enforcement officials and others the ability to view data obtained from satellite and aircraft sensors that can see through cloud cover and even penetrate buildings and underground bunkers, reports the Washington Post. The Director of National Intelligence and the Department of Homeland Security will allow broader domestic use of secret overhead imagery beginning as early as this fall; the expectation is that state and local law enforcement officials will eventually be able to tap into technology once largely restricted to foreign surveillance"Washington Post
