There seems to be a pattern with of deception with the U.S. government. Have you noticed that most of the time that the stories they push on every major news stations, most of the time is usually a cover-up for something?

Why would they announce to the world that they have a better communications system for its military? $5.3 Billion for communication or was this the first test run of the latest space weapon?

On March 23, 1983, President Ronald Reagan proposed the Strategic Defense Initiative, a research program with a goal of developing a defensive system which would destroy enemy ICBMs. The defensive system was nicknamed Star Wars, after the movie, by its detractors.

Some concepts of the system included Brilliant Pebbles, which were Kinetic Kill Vehicles, essentially small rockets launched from satellites toward their targets (a warhead, warhead bus, or even an upper stage of an ICBM.

Other aspects included satellites in orbit carrying powerful lasers or particle beams. When a missile launch was detected, the satellite would fire at the missile (or warheads) and destroy it. Although no real hardware was ever manufactured for deployment (according to public knowledge), today the military is testing the use of lasers mounted on Boeing 747s to destroy missiles. The tests are taking place at Edwards Air Force Base.

Ghyzel said the cost estimate for the entire MUOS program is $5.3 billion. That includes launching the five satellites, building ground stations and supporting the Navy’s share of the Joint Tactical Radio System-developed waveform.

The Kessler syndrome (also called the Kessler effect,[1][2] collisional cascading or ablation cascade), proposed by NASA scientist Donald J. Kessler in 1978, is a scenario in which the density of objects in low Earth orbit (LEO) is high enough that collisions between objects could cause a cascade – each collision generating debris which increases the likelihood of further collisions.[3] One implication is that the distribution of debris in orbit could render space exploration, and even the use of satellites, unfeasible for many generations.[3]
Okay, would this be confusion, or just caught in another lie? When you tell the truth, then you don't have to remember what you said, and when you said it. How will they explain this? Who launched a real communications satellite, or were neither launches for the purpose of communications?

The U.S. Air Force successfully launched a new-generation military communications satellite Dec. 5, 2009 at 8:47 p.m. (EST), when a Delta IV rocket carried a Wideband Global SATCOM (WGS) into space.

WGS satellites are designed to provide high-capacity communications to U.S. military forces. They will augment and eventually replace the Defense Satellite Communication System that has been the Department of Defense's backbone for satellite communications over the last two decades
Secretary of the Air Force Michael Donley, who had planned to witness the launch from the Morrell Operations Center at CCAFS prior to a 24-hour weather delay, said he and the entire nation depend on the 45th Space Wing and other space associated programs.

"The WGS provides a giant leap in communications bandwidth and technology," said Secretary Donley. "The launch of this satellite is another example of the Air Force bringing important and vital capabilities to our nation's military around the world."

It keeps getting better, and I can't believe these launches are for communications. Is Russia, speaking out to let the U.S. know they will be ready?

Russia is planning to launch at least 100 military satellites in the next 10 years to boost its reconnaissance and missile detection capabilities, head of Russian Space Agency Roscosmos Vladimir Popovkin said on Wednesday.
