I'm a long-time lurker of this site, and I've tried to participate in some threads in a level-headed manner, doing my best to avoid going too far
down any particular rabbit hole. Today a thought struck me that was interesting enough (to my mind, at least) that I felt the need to make my very
first thread about it. I'm not asking for anyone to take it easy on me, but I do ask that some thought be given either for or against the general
Mods, if this is the wrong forum for this particular thread, I apologize in advance.
In the current culture of security scandals and the government performing damage control on issues that may or may not be damning to the various
Administrations, our government must find it hard to justify it's behavior based on the fact that if there were any outstanding victories, they would
undoubtedly be classified victories and therefore unavailable for the Average Joe to understand.
The closest I can get to this line of thinking, while trying to remain objective about the question as a whole is the way the Manhattan Project was
handled, or D-Day. These were massively secret projects that I would argue were performed with the best interests of America at heart. The only reason
we know about these victories is the fact that eventually the information behind these projects was declassified, and they stand as indications that
having deeply classified information and projects can be for the general benefit of your average American.
The problem with such victorious milestones is their relative infrequency. The Manhattan Project and Operation Overlord are far enough in the past now
that their impact has been dulled. I feel that we, as the Public,
need more examples of they way the government has worked diligently behind the scenes for our benefit by declassifying some older projects that have
demonstrably been successful for our mutual safety,
I think that the time has come to begin declassifying whatever lies behind the UFO question as a show of how such things are truly handled. I believe
that an inside look into the policies and methods used there will aid in understanding the motivations behind how such things are handled today.
Whether or not there is anything of substantial impact to the cover-up itself is not really the point of the exercise
(call it the Mother of All Fringe Benefits). How an entire network of support, secrecy, oversight and denial sprang up and has been maintained
through different Administrations will outline how such things are done today, and more importantly, why such organizations react as they do.
To wrap it up, I feel that the time has come for the American People to be shown a modern example of a massive, declassified project. Better judgement
can be used at that time. Without showing the public something, ANYTHING, The Powers That Be will always be on the defensive. Justified or not.
It's time to decide.
I'm interested to hear opinions! Hopefully this can become a lively debate.
