Maniak isn't the only one skeptical of satellite shoot down

Kevin Drum links to this Danger Room blog post that discusses experts' skeptical reaction to the US justification for shooting down the satellite:
Having the US government spend millions of dollars to destroy a billion-dollar failure to save zero lives is comedic gold."

"There has to be another reason behind this," said Michael Krepon, co-founder of the Henry L. Stimson Center, tells the Washington Post. "In the history of the space age, there has not been a single human being who has been harmed by man-made objects falling from space."

The Danger Room blog post has a lot of good information. See Maniak's original Internal Monologue post here.
