NORAD Tracks Santa for 50th Christmas Eve
COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) -- Radars, satellites, cameras and jet fighters that are normally dedicated to detecting any threats against the United States and Canada instead were tracking the Christmas Eve travels of Santa Claus.
In the 50th anniversary of the tradition, soldiers at the North American Aerospace Defense Command, or NORAD, said by about 10 a.m. EST, Santa had been spotted near Fiji, Japan, traveling about 100 times faster than the 185-mph Bullet Train.
By 11 a.m., NORAD said Santa was in the Himalayas.

Santa Claus is Karl Rove? No wonder why things have been going the Republican's way!
Oh My G_D, NORAD is spying on Santa Claus and has been doing it for FIFTY YEARS!!!! Why hasn't the ACLU stepped in to stop this!!!! Where has the Democrat outrage over this invasion of privacy been? Did Jack Abramhoff bribe them to be silent?
