Is the CIA getting mad at us because they want to be the only one doing illegal activities?
Well, that is their job. Do whatever it takes to complete the mission at hand.
I can see their point in a sense being former military,(just a example) say a rebel leader vanishes in the middle of the night in Kabul, later that day someone posts a picture on here of a CIA
owned Gulfstream V flying in or out of Kabul in the middle of the night. Where as the CIA
wants to work in secrecy, the less you know the better. It won't take much for the rebels to figure out the CIA
flew in and most likely picked up that rebel leader once they see the picture on here. Say the rebels were planning a attack on a near by country, the CIA
wants to find out what the intended target is, if the rebels are tipped off that their leader is in U.S hands, the attack could happen sooner than the original planned time. Where as if there was no tracking of their planes, the attack could have been prevented. I think that is what they are trying to prevent from happening. Now can they stop us from taking pictures? No!! Can they spend a few bucks and get a few phony decals with false registration #'s on it to place over the actual registration # to fool us? Yes!!

While we are on this topic, why is it ok to run the N-number on a plane, and find out who owns it and where they live, but you can't do the same on a car's license plate.
$25.00 at your local DMV and you can find out the address of anybody through their License Plate. Just tell them you had a fended bender with that person and need to get in touch with them.
