Not perfectly. Correct.
Also, they did use it fairly soon, but the idea that something could be designed to keep people "like moles in the dark" has already been done.
I realise you're not saying otherwise, but there was a very real difference between the secrecy surrounding Manhattan and that of the UFO
In a nutshell, if those involved with Manhattan blabbed, it could have literally resulted in the demise of every Man, WOman and Child alive in the
That fear alone, a very real 'unmanufactured' fear in actuality would have stood over and above that concering one's own thoughts of mortality. As
such, the knowledge that should the enemy break the secrecy and aquire the data and beat the US to the bomb, it could be the end of everything for
every American would be a powerful reason for those involved to 'keep Mum'.
As far as i know, there is not such dire consequences attached to the UFO phenomena...plenty of selfish reasons to conceal of course, tech, weaponry,
benefits to science, maintaining financial status quo and so on, but not anything involving annihilation of a continent or our entire species, so the
secrecy and the revealing of the secrecy ought not to carry the same levels of protection and fear as Manhattan did.
