Not content with the extent of US global empire, John Yoo has raised his sights, opining in the New York Times:
"Outer space has become the next frontier for American national security and business. From space, we follow terrorists and intercept their communications, detect foreign military deployments, and monitor a proliferation of unconventional weapons. Our Global Positioning System gives us targeting and tactical advantages, spacecraft create image-rich maps, and satellites beam data around the world."
In a Time magazine piece rebutting the Berkeley professor's opposition to a draft European Union "code of conduct" to regulate outer space, Jeffrey Kluger identifies the true nature of Yoo's vision: militarization of space.
