"US and others have plenty of satellites for that. Better equipped for the task and there's no need to bring them back on earth to retrieve the pictures for quite some time already"

Indeed, and that makes me think that there are other factors at play here as well. While the Boeing X-37 is currently being operated as a reusable robotic spacecraft, it also gives every impression of being able to be converted to a two person crewed vehicle and I'd be will to bet that the necessary plans and conversion kit have already been prepared.
