I can accept the basic structure of the F-117 being used in an aircraft which looks quite different, this is entirely possible and not unique
by any means. However, given that we have known about the F-117 for nearly 20 years, what is the benefit of this F-19 still being top secret when it
has been left far behind by technology that is publically known?
As I have mentioned several times in these discussions about the F-19 it is not the techonology that is the secret of the F-19. It is the way they
funded it and who it went to. Very few outsiders have the slightest idea at all what is in 'our' inventory. It is overwhelming.
The key to the deception is the F-19 and that is why it will be kept secret forever. If the F-19 were would be exposed there would be key Senators
that would say, "Now wait a minute, I have all of these super secret clearances, I have been to Tonopah, Groom, Sandia and all the others and you
have sworn to me that nothing else exists...where did this come from and how was it funded and why don't I know about it. This identical story
happend to whatsiname, Senator Byrd's flunkie who came out to Groom and asked to see S-4. What S-4 they asked?
At that same time this guy had been told that Tonopah was inactive but what he didn't know was the American Trans Air was flying in there 12 times a
day on another program. (I checked with ATA Ops that day and all flights were put on hold while that guy was at the test site.)
This guy was humiliated beyond all possible belief because he was able to turn up nothing 'super secret' but he knew it was going on. He knew
congress had been hornswagled and there was nothing he could do about it. I will try and remember his name later today).
I think this all happened back in around 1990 after the Lazar story came out and Congress wondered, "Is there any possibility this could be
1990 was the year a very intense security program was put into place. Much more intense than any before. Whatever measures they put into effect have
worked very well. There have been no major leaks since that time. Even the Aurora which was a Mach 12/250,000 foot suborbital 'airplane' has been
relagated to the files as 'rumor'.
