The U-2 is a piece of crap. The only thing it does well is ensure LockMart makes plenty of money off the US taxpayer. Hell, you have to have a secure RF link to send the pictures back to the appropriate intelligence agency anyway, you might as well fly the airplane from there too and no risk the public debacle that lead to the airplane that should have replaced the U-2 decades ago, the SR-71. Instead we live in a world where the good airplane was retired because it didn't need continual upgrades and the crappy airplane continues to fly because it makes the most money for the defense contractor. I remember when this country was run by men rather than by multi-national corporations. Those days didn't suck.
