Find a means to claim it under the national security classification, and you can be virtually assured it'll never see the light of day.
You should be aware that the Patent Office has a program, that anyone can subscribe to, which notifies the subscriber when anyone is trying to get a patent on the technology category they are interested in. You can bet 'vested interest' subscribes to this service. So the inventor notifies the sharks, that he's ready to be eaten, by filing for a patent.
