We work with Aliens, they helped us on the hyperdrive. But really what's amazing is that the stealth bombers use cloaking tech recovered from the pyramids

One of the significant facts, often overlooked, is that people who Really work at these supersecret govt facilities (such as the CIA, NSA, etc) are sort of spied-upon-for-life by the US govt. They have to sign an agreement when hired that not only will they keep the secrets unto death, but, because the govt doesn't really trust them, anything they write for publication (even cookbooks and porn novels) has to be vetted first by the agency to make sure that it doesn't even hint at something secret. There have been instances of people breaking this rule and the govt then scooping up all the printed copies and destroying them, without any compensation. There are ample rumors of people who got talkative getting arrested, sometimes framed for serious crimes, so they can be locked away to tell their tales to other people who aren't getting out.
The point being that, if someone says he used to work for a supersecret agency and will tell you stuff - or someone who works at one is blabbing to him, this is so nearly impossible to be true that you do well not to believe him.
Compartments don't get exciting names like "Black Hole Research" and "Warp Drive Technology Division." They get names like 882-8A, from which nothing can be derived, not even by the compartment that houses the database workers themselves. When a new project opens, a new number is issued to it. The database doesn't read "882-8A: Cloaking Systems", it's just "882-8A", along with its list of points of contact, its budget, and what requirements must be met to review any information coming out of this department.
Each Compartment is given strict orders not to discuss their jobs, except in the vaguest of terms, like "Systems Engineer," or "Operations Analyst".
People who work in "Secret Facilities" have yet to come online and post here at ATS a guide as to how to debunk those who claim to be from them from those who really have been. To do so would probably get them fired, arrested, fined, or imprisoned.
