But I have a hard time believing that members of our own military would be involved in this and it not leak out in a major way. Not everyone would be so on board with it as to agree 100% with the mission. Plus the amount of people in the government that would have to know. The more people added to the list of have to knows, the less likely it will stay secret for long.
name one tech that was not stolen in part or in whole by another country

Why is it of popular opinion here to believe that America is directly involved, complicit omnipotent,omnipresent, in all Ill and negative world acts? You just swallow conjecture and say yea, sounds right to me. I don't argue America has chosen strategy over moral compass but still sells moral obligation. I am arguing its rediculous to believe Americas direct responsibility for everything wrong in the world.

I am intrigued by area 51...true enough, but frankly I just don't automatically buy into the whole culture surrounding it. I need a bit more than a few semi legit players making wild claims and a whole boatload load of laughably discredited people parroting the same and more.
Nukes...gone. Stealth...gone. Any and all computer tech... gone. Heck, the chinese have their own version of the f-35 now. Including even the cockpit electronics. The more people involved the more likely a secret is no longer a secret. It is only a question of time... except the chineses seem rather adept at ferreting out our secrets pretty quickly.
There is a famous saying (forget who to credit with it, though) that states one person can hold a secret, but 2 cannot lol. While I am relatively certain that is an exageration, I am pretty sure you get the point.
