  •  Discussing why it's secret (0+ / 0-)

    and the secret itself are two different things.

    I used to run a top secret+ detachment for the AF during Vietnam and even the Bird Colonel base commander (or DCO for that matter) couldn't just walk in when he felt like it, and I was just an 0-3 Detachment Commander.  But I could explain to him why he couldn't, and really didn't want to know what I knew, once he understood that....I was a different command, a  tenant on his base, and if he was smart he would just go away and leave us alone....which he did....

    So his responsibility was to know that we had secrets.. the secrets we had were not his to know....need to know, "special" weapons and all that. Win-Win

    Without geometry, life is pointless. And blues harmonica players suck.
