Default Re: High Res Satellite Image Of Fallugah...Right Down To Street Level

Absoloutly Nomad.

Probably well before actually. This is a civilian accessed satellite so we get only low resoloution. Shows you the layout of the small city though.

It's actually quite small (Fallugah) and it's amazing that it took so long to 'liberate'.

A friend worked in military intelligence in the late 60's and early 70's. Australia had access to U.S imagery that could read a news paper back then.

All the photo's like the ones showing missiles in Cuba were low res so as not to give away the capabilities of their camera lenses.

In the early eighties they were using satelites that could differentiate the infra red sinnature of plant species the size of 1 acre or less.

Remember that when they tell you they cant win the drug war. Yeh right...
