Errrr, I haven't recently 'seen a book with minor procedural and tactical secrets in it ... destroyed by the DOD'. That's a new one for me, what book exactly? Or is it conveniently MIA and therefore only apocryphal now? I hope for your sake you have the only remaining copy, should be worth a bunch by now.
Corso's book was written when he was nearly on his deathbed (IOW little worried about subsequent damage) and while I'm sure there's a lot he left out, he certainly pointed in a 'UFO's exist' direction. Sure anything the government or individuals in general publish can be as much disinfo as info; you have to take it all in context and sort through it and come to your own conclusions.
What part of Corso's book was technologically garbage? I read it years ago but don't remember much in the way of technology at all, more so it was a memoir written by someone who was technologically not savvy at all.
Please enlighten us, and with something more useful than 'clown shoe' comments. And I never mentioned Greer, so don't go there.

Weather tracked by satellites and Doppler Radar.
Nuclear tests tracked by satellites and seismographs.
I can walk up to a F-117 at an airshow and all but touch it.
But, I'm to believe that outside of Roswell, in 1947, a "weather balloon" crashed, and much of it is still classified in 2012. Okay.

Assuming the aliens can travel quickly, why would they travel here? There are so many star systems, the odds of them choosing this one is, well, astronomically small.

...you were offered a more hands on role in the project, at which point you were told the awesome story you enjoy hinting at?
I was actually told the story several times in bits and pieces before I got the whole read. A chunk here, a chunk there, then all at once. You always hear Army stories (this ain't no s...t...), though. Most are obvious bs, some are interestingly spooky.
The first time was in the Army when I called an AF colonel a liar (more or less) and he got pretty po'd, then later pulled me aside and gave me a demo of something minor, but it was...unexpected and didn't fit into my worldview.
The next was after the Army when I was about to graduate, I'd done some contract work for the government during school instead of being a lab instructor (heh). They must have liked me because I got hit up by a technical TLA for a job as a field agent back in Europe on graduation, and was told (likely the reference someone posted earlier) that "we're going to fill you in on the entire REAL story when you join us - but here's a few highlights".
Got another chunk at LANL while I worked there, which more or less agreed with the TLA guy's come-on.
Then we did a job with an aerospace company during which there was a "screw with the contractors" episode, and we got an awesome, inspiring, full-on throw-a-rock-and-hit-one jaw dropping holy crap demo. Not to be forgotten.
Then other stuff sort of happened, further deponent sayeth not. Except Ben Rich was right. I can't believe he said that.
