That patch is retarded. I own this one:

They got in trouble for this one:

By "spec launch" I mean SpaceX paid for the satellite "on spec" - as in, this is a Space-X funded mission in order to get the NRO to sign on with Space X. "spec work" is stuff you do for free in pursuit of future business opportunities. I mean whatever the payload is, it isn't something the NRO gives much of a shit about.
