If it’s Classified, it means it’s Secret… Any technology that is a secret can’t be good for the world or the citizens of the USA. Remember the same technology can be used against its own citizens. Where is the transparency in operations like this? While billions are spent sending hardware into space, millions of citizens on the ground still suffer. I for one dream of a world that uses it’s limited resources to enrich the lives of all nations on earth. Let’s spend billions on lifting us all out of poverty, defeat war with understanding and expand the cosciousness of humanity to the marvels of the existence that we are all born into.

If we waited until all suffering ends before moving forward with technology, we would still be living in caves, wearing rotting animal skins.
