South Korea Spying on North Korea
In this photo taken on Feb. 16, 2012, U.S. Air Force U-2 spy plane pilot Major Carl stands by a U-2 with his name on the name tag covered with a black tape at the U.S. airbase in Osan, south of Seoul, South Korea. The mission is classified. The pilots' names are secret and the finer points of the aircraft's sensors are a mystery to all but a select few with the proper security clearance and a compelling need to know. But there is one thing about the iconic U-2 spy plane that is not kept under wraps. (AP Photo/Lee Jin-man)
