What do you do when grouchy French bureaucrats want to derail your space plans?

First, deny the event and second, ignore them if compromised.

That’s what’s happened with Germany and the US.S. according to Aftenposten (via Brietbart), now one of the favored media dump zones for WikiLeaks guy and accused sex crime committer Julian Assange, along with El Pais, The Guardian, The New York Times, Le Monde and Der Spiegel.

"Absolutely no cooperation is planned with France or any other EU country when it comes to the HiROS project," DLR executive Andreas Eckart was quoted as saying.

DLR is Germany’s national research center for aeronautics and space.

The project, named HiROS, envisions the construction of an undetermined number of high-resolution observation satellites capable of spotting any object on the planet down to a size of just 50 centimetres (about 1.5 feet), according to classified cables from US embassy in Berlin leaked to WikiLeaks and obtained by Norwegian daily Aftenposten. 

Remember, you still can’t spell Assange without a-s-s.
