The Manhattan Project employed two hundred thousand people. It had eighty offices and dozens of production plants spread out all over the country, including a sixty-thousand-acre facility in rural Tennessee that pulled more power off the nation's electrical grid than New York City did on any given night. And no one knew the Manhattan Project was there. That is how powerful a black operation can be.
So what are the chances that Earth has been visited, even been crashed up, left debris, been collected, reverse-engineered and applied to our technology,

The short answer is No. In a world of whistle blowers, unsilenced government officials, and poor cover-up attempts. Along with numerous sighting, they themselves are not exactly doing well at covering it from the public eye.
I'm forced to ask myself if it's even possible to maintain absolute secrecy regarding the existence of aliens/alien UFO's?

If you mean could extraterrestrial technology be kept secret, the answer is no. Any technology sufficiently advanced to travel between the stars would be incomprehensible to human scientists. Can you imagine a group of chimpanzees back engineering a jet plane?

To be fair, reverse engineering and the ability to keep technology secret is kind of two separate arguments is it not?
sure it's possible. Very easy also.
You simply deny it at the top of the food chain.
Considering aircraft still use carbon based fuels, no reverse engineered alien technology has been used.
The reason being, there isn't any.

This is my first reply having read and viewed ATS for many years. In reply , no disrespect but yes you can. First my background is I am an American former soldier and combat vet. I held a top secret clearance for the entire duration of my service. I was a member of Special Forces and Special Operations. I have worked with classified units all over the world as well as agencies with the US government. I can tell you without hesitation that there are many I repeat MANY things that are never divulged.
People are pointing out the systemic nature the government and its organizations have for leaking or dripping info
But there has to be someone at the top, somewhere for it to even be a secret. Maybe another agency, fine, but those roles are constantly changing or new people are coming in and out of them.
No matter how powerful a secret group [a shadow government if you will] is, they cannot control each wing of the government entirely at all times. There have been numerous short term changes over the years for any alphabet agency [choose whichever one you want] the idea here is that one of them is holding all the secrets right? That can't be purged simply because someone new came into power in that agency, so at least one, has to be carry this secret since what? the 1950s?
