This is just a nice coincidence that deserves sharing. The top post at Slashdot right now explains that

The Tamil Tigers Liberation Front […] has moved up from routine sea piracy to a space-based one […] They have been been accused of illegally using Intelsat satellites

while the bottom post informs us that

the Department of Defense plans to launch in the first quarter of 2009 a satellite-based router to deliver military communications. Satellite operator Intelsat will manage the three-year Internet Routing In Space (IRIS) project

Perhaps the DoD made their decision just a few minutes too soon?
