Classified Space Program in Intel Bill?

Key Democrat Calls Spy Bill's Mystery Program a National Security Threat. There is wide speculation in the intelligence and defense community that the highly expensive classified program in the Intel Bill is a system for satellite defense, or possibly even offensive capabilities to attack enemy and commercial intelligence satellites. As I noted in an earlier post this sort of military venture in outer space could start an new arms race we cannot afford. Pushing this sort of program through as a secret provision, precluding any open debate on a topic of such critical importance, while not surprising from this government, is, none-the-less, anti-democratic and unacceptable.
