4. I subsequently asked how old the general was. It seems to me this is a pertinent point and could help the OP ascertain for himself the veracity of the story as told to him by the general. If "the general" is in his fifties, it is unlikely the story is true. If "the general" is over 65, there is still nothing inconsistent about OP's (or the generals's) story.

X-15, still the fastest manned "plane" we know about, flew in '59 for the first time. And speaking of technology, Scramjets are still ahead of their time, even today (IMO). An interesting fact about the SR-71 is the faster it goes, the less fuel it uses.

These hangers, even though they are way within U.S. property and grounds, and these programs that none of the Air Force brass were allowed access to were all black budget, covert, external groups not related AT ALL to the U.S. Government or Military. He even said the hangers were guarded by men with security like camouflage on with no insignia, no rank, no affiliation with the air force.
If it was for the purpose of our national security, why does that preclude, having some kind of identification!
For all we know, it could be the Chinese. No insigna, no affiliation with the USA. How the H--- can we know?!
It's the USA. Calm down.
The guards probably just don't want to spread the name of their secret organization to
nosy generals who simply don't have a need to know.
Bob Lazar knows the name of their secret organization.

Just wanted to support the OP here. the story isn't new, maybe the general was puffing things up, maybe not..but I've heard crazier stories on this very site given much credence
, so ease off him. We know they're here, we know america got an infusion of technological knowledge right around the early- mid-50's, because we had a HUGE jump in technological know-how/capability. It came from somewhere.
, let's be honest: even the greatest minds of the time spent most of their careers stumbling in the dark.
