Government Underground Secrecy
Posted: 11:35 December 1, 2008
Secrecy by our government is not anything new, and in the case of developing new technology for our military, I agree with the need for secrecy, since we don't want our adversaries knowing what is being developed. It's my personal feeling that UFO information is well known by our government and military, however for more than 60 years they have both been emphatic that they either know nothing about it, or it doesn't exist. Those of us that have done this research of course believe differently. To put it simply, we're being lied to. Such secrecy is not only limited to information the government has or knows about UFOs, but on many other fronts as well.
While doing research, I always regress to two questions I have. Who has given a few the authority to keep certain secrets from the public? And secondly, what has happened to the first three words in the preamble to our Constitution---"We the people"? Secrecy, lies and cover-ups have perpetuated themselves to the point that the general public no longer has any confidence in our elected officials, as shown recently in the public's low approval ratings of those officials.
Again in my opinion, young people in this country need to start asking questions and demanding answers of our leaders. Accepting secrecy and cover-ups is no longer acceptable, but will continue, and probably increase if no one questions them. Secrecy can be good and even justified in some cases, but it can get out of hand and become extremely dangerous if abused.
Much of this secrecy is cloaked from the public and most of our elected officials with catch phrases such as; "National Security", "Research and Development", "Special Projects", and others, some of which are probably "Black Projects". The financial budgets for some of these programs are staggering figures, and in the case of the Central Intelligence Agency, by law, the National Security Act of 1947 made it illegal to ever disclose how much money is spent by the CIA. Guess who is paying for all of this? You and I are.
"Activities at Area 51 (also known as Groom Lake), have properly been determined to be classified"
Several of the secret military bases, such as Area 51 have highly visible signs posted stating, "the use of deadly force is authorized", which is a good indication that something very secretive is taking place there either above or below ground. Since the 1990's each President has issued a yearly Presidential Determination, "exempting the base from complying with environmental laws." The reason given is the fact that, "activities at Area 51 (also known as Groom Lake), have properly been determined to be classified, and its disclosure would be harmful to National Security."
