Oh great, this is wonderful fucking news.
The U.S.'s top intelligence official has greatly expanded the range of federal and local authorities who can get access to information from the nation's vast network of spy satellites in the U.S.(WSJ Online)
For local authorities read: Barney Fife. This is just plain stupid. Forget privacy, hell your backyard isnt going to be safe from these people. Software provided with these systems will allow the P.D. to track individual vehicles. They dont have to tag the car, the software will follow it all over town. So next year, or the year after next, they will sell this data the marketers. You are going to get text messages telling you there is a Starbucks up ahead you better pull over.
