The article goes on to say,...

{ Under US law, anyone can buy pictures of every country in the world, except Israel. Terror groups or countries designated by the State Dept as spnsoring terrorism cannot buy the pictures. And the Secretary of Defense or State can order an area of the world off-limits to commercial sales in times of emergency, such as war.

Since Space Imagery Inc launched its satellite last year, US officials have yet to impose any limits. One challenge os US openness will come over the request to photograph Area 51, a base long used to test new aircraft. }

Might be worth keeing an eye on the FAS web site over the next few weeks. In fact, I might even send an email to John Pike to see whether he is willing to do a short interview that we can put on this site if you're interested!
