I was wondering if I could host this spot for a few sharp posters to assess and debunk this claim, possibly with links that explain why that can't be true? Then there's a place to link to when someone brings it up.

Sorry, no links handy, too late to dig some up. I understand Webster Tarpley (not a good sign) is one of the people making this allegation, in a video from Prison Planet or other Alex Jones show, for one. (saw it earlier today).
Proving the negative is pretty much impossible to begin with, a claim that satelite surveillance of any way was used to prove air strikes didn't happen is an uphill struggle by itself.

That said, how could satelite surveillance be used to disprove airstrikes in the first place? Is there any known mechanism for this? If yes, what is it?
