Revealed: China Y2 Spy Plane Caught on Camera


Wired Magazine has obtained the photos of China’s new secret pay plane, the Y20. The images were captured from the GeoEye 1 on January 1 and gives us a more detailed look into the design of the plane; the design reveals similarities with US planes. As reports:

The new imagery is sharper, more detailed and shot from a higher angle than the grainy first photos of the Y-20 that appeared on Chinese internet forums in late December, providing a much more reliable basis for assessing the transport’s layout. Apparently slightly smaller than the U.S. Air Force’s workhorse C-17, the Y-20 sports the same wide swept wing and T-shaped tail as the Boeing-made C-17, blueprints of which China obtained several years ago through a spy working for the Chicago-based plane manufacturer.

The Flop: Child Soldiers and WH policy versus State Department

If you have your crack pipe handy hit it now; its the only way this is going to make sense. On May 4, 2011 the UN’s Global Classroom kicked off its annual event. Previously, in 2009, Hillary addressed the group and brought them together on topics they all seem to be fighting for.

Hillary and the crowd were against the militarization of children in armed conflict; or so the video seems to show. (at 2:40) They responded in kind with their applause to Hillary’s condemnation. However, Hillary Clinton was silent just one year later when President Barack Obama waived the restrictions on child soldiers being used in the Sudan. The measure was put in place by George W Bush and was immediately waived by Obama. Have you seen a press release from Clinton yet denouncing this action?

Totally against it but silent
