     Turns out the "Bush Doctrine" extends to outer space, too.

As reported in the Washington Post, the president last month signed an order asserting the right of the United States to deny adversaries access to space for hostile purposes. At the same time, the order says the United States will accept no treaties limiting its own extraterrestrial activities.
