I just want to let the readers of the Mansel report know about a hugely influential website,

The site is run by John Young and he is fearless.

“Young has put up thousands of files over the years, including large amounts of classified military and intelligence material…
Most controversial of Young’s projects has been the “eyeballing” series, in which Young uploads aerial photos he has taken from commercial satellites. You can imagine the frustration of the Pentagon when various secret intelligence and nuclear installations, hidden on remote islands or in deep forests, are suddenly revealed to the world in high-resolution, full-color aerial photos on Young’s site.”
