Y2K Cover, and the W88 (was sat hack)

That link was stale, but ABC's Web site is covering leaks of data go China about the W88 warhead internals.

Prediction: It will turn out that various actors have been collecting intel on "exploits" of critical systems, public and black-ops, and will time their assaults on same to best advantage with whatever "organic" or "genuine" Y2K problems arise. Or they'll threaten to, and extort whatever the market will bear out of the targets. The UK milsat is just the tip of the iceberg, whether it really got hacked or not. IMPORTANT NOTE:
Can someone who knows how help me set up an ideas exchange entry for that? I want in on the ground floor.

You'll all have seen this by now?


Ah yes, *what they leave out*...

What this satellite mover is, see, I reckon, it's a rogue AI (US military, presumably, with inside dope) feeling its oats...
