How Online Clues Located North Korea's Missile-Launcher Factories

At this parade, one thing had analysts buzzing: six mobile launchers carrying KN-08 intercontinental ballistic missiles. Bloggers in China quickly noted the similarities between the trucks and those used by the Chinese military, right down to the shape of the windows and the grille pattern. It's the stuff of spy thrillers. A few seconds of video, literature, a couple of memoirs and Google Earth helped locate a secret North Korean military plant — and using none of the classified tools of the intelligence trade."

Who is watching the blind watchdogs? (1)

Figures that while Americans are surveilled heavily, this at almost no cost gets missed.

We are too busy looking for fake threats here and a cited nation of concern readies a force delivery system of real concern from afar.

If our cyber warfare advocates were effective, these trucks would have failed to be constructed or broke down during the parade.

Who is the proper people that should run the intelligence apparatus?

Not the ones that perjury in front of Congress's hearings becomes a Modus Operandi as they should resign now.
