#1 Bet the Russians would love to have a nice long peek into the innards of the USAF's X-37B -and- whatever Top Secret payloads it has been hauling to orbit and back.

#5 Russia has dismissed the comments as "unfounded, slanderous accusations based on suspicions".

So it's true.

#6 I've read several of what are evidently retreads of this same article and I have a question. Just what is this 'abnormal behavior' in question. Does it tap dance, or sit around and make paper airplanes?
Remember, the basic trick of misdirection is to give you something to look at while keeping you from looking at something else.

#7 ed in texas, it is a certainty that to describe that with an specificity would expose 'means and methods' since the article rules out such easily observable behaviors as orbit changes

#9 Mr. President, in October of last year the Russian Ministry of Defense deployed a space object they claimed was a “space apparatus inspector.” But its behavior on-orbit was inconsistent with anything seen before from on-orbit inspection or space situational awareness capabilities, including other Russian inspection satellite activities. We are concerned with what appears to be very abnormal behavior by a declared “space apparatus inspector.”
