Where is the Missing money >?
In the Conspiracy Realm ..
2.3 Trillion that was Uncounted for AKA The Government know it was Spent, but they were not telling Where
Claims of The Paper Work & Documents to Files on Hard Drives AKA Data Banks was in the Twin Towers and The Pentagon
Yeah Taking Years to Sort it out As Rumsfeld Said !
Yeah Sure .
Not Unless we Take out the Places that Hold the Information of Transactions of where that Money has Went.
Truth or Fiction ? It all how you Look at it
To the Public Eye that is.
It just that Loop Hole of finding out the Information.
just Saying ..
in this Conspiracy Realm we live to Thrive on ATS LOL !
Everyone is missing the point here, and just want to rattle about black budgets, I know all about black budgets, and Rumsfeld, and 9/11, and lost files of corruption, and probably a lot of gold did a runner on 9/11 too. I refer to this thread only, which is about an SR72 sighting, of which Boeing and Lockheed are supposed to be working on, however they have not been funded by Government as far as anybody knows. On the other hand Northrop Grumman have been awarded a contract for the USAF even though their project is classified, but it's no secret that they have the contract, and that they are working on it, and that contract was awarded in opposItion to SR72, because it was the USAF's preference. NG's project should be up and running soon. The SR72 project is long term up to 2030, as yet there is no known downscale demonstrator, of which will not resemble the final result entirely anyway. So how could anybody see the final production model in the sky now? The Op is either mistaken, or the SR72 project is up and running 16 years in advance, or at the very least they have a full scale pre-production example in the air. So are Boeing and Lockheed spending their own fortunes on something that the US doesn't want? I don't think so, and they also need to balance the books and produce annual accounts. Now do you understand?
The North American Aviation XB-70 Valkyrie was the prototype version of the proposed B-70 nuclear-armed deep-penetration strategic bomber for the United States Air Force's (USAF) Strategic Air Command. Designed by North American Aviation in the late 1950s, the Valkyrie was a large six-engined aircraft able to fly Mach 3+ at an altitude of 70,000 feet (21,000 m), which would have allowed it to avoid interceptors, the only effective anti-bomber weapon at the time. Improved high-altitude surface-to-air missiles (SAMs), the change to low-level penetration bombing, the program's high development costs, and the introduction of intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBMs) led to the cancellation of the B-70 program in 1961. Although the proposed fleet of operational B-70 bombers was canceled, two prototype aircraft were built as the XB-70A and used in supersonic test flights from 1964 to 1969. One prototype crashed following a midair collision in 1966; the other is on display at the National Museum of the United States Air Force in Ohio.
The Mikoyan-Gurevich MiG-25 (Russian: Микоян и Гуревич МиГ-25) (NATO reporting name: Foxbat) is a supersonic interceptor and reconnaissance aircraft that was among the fastest military aircraft to enter service. It was designed by the Soviet Union's Mikoyan-Gurevich bureau. The first prototype flew in 1964, and the aircraft entered into service in 1970. It has a top speed of Mach 2.83 (as high as Mach 3.2, but at risk of significant damage to the engines), and features a powerful radar and four air-to-air missiles. When first seen in reconnaissance photography, the large wing planform suggested an enormous and highly maneuverable fighter, at a time when U.S. design theories were also evolving towards higher maneuverability due to combat performance in the Vietnam War. The appearance of the MiG-25 sparked serious concern in the West and prompted dramatic increases in performance for the McDonnell Douglas F-15 Eagle then under development in late 1960s. The capabilities of the MiG-25 were better understood in 1976 when Soviet pilot Viktor Belenko defected in a MiG-25 to the United States via Japan. It turned out that the weight of the aircraft necessitated large wings. Production of the MiG-25 series ended in 1984 after completion of 1,190 aircraft. A symbol of the Cold War, the MiG-25 flew with Soviet allies and former Soviet republics, remaining in limited service in Russia and several other nations. It is the second fastest and second highest-flying military aircraft ever fielded after the SR-71 reconnaissance aircraft.
The subsonic Boeing B-47 Stratojet and Boeing B-52 Stratofortress strategic bombers were followed by the Mach 2-capable Convair B-58 Hustler, with the even faster North American B-70 Valkyrie on the drawing board. A major upgrade in the PVO defence system was required, and at the start of 1958 a requirement was issued for manned interceptors capable of reaching 3,000 km/h and heights of up to 27 km (88,583 ft). Mikoyan and Sukhoi responded.
The majority of the on-board avionics were based on vacuum-tube technology, not solid-state electronics. Although they represented aging technology, vacuum tubes were more tolerant of temperature extremes, thereby removing the need for environmental controls in the avionics bays. The vacuum tubes were also easy to replace in remote northern airfields where sophisticated transistor parts might not have been readily available. With the use of vacuum tubes, the MiG-25P's original Smerch-A (Tornado, NATO reporting name "Foxfire") radar had enormous power – about 600 kilowatts. As with most Soviet aircraft, the MiG-25 was designed to be as rugged as possible. The use of vacuum tubes also makes the aircraft's systems resistant to an electromagnetic pulse, for example after a nuclear blast.
