Comment: "The Manhattan Project

(See in situ)

Jefferson's picture

"The Manhattan Project

began modestly in 1939, but grew to employ more than 130,000 people and cost nearly US$2 billion (roughly equivalent to $25.8 billion as of 2013[1]). Over 90% of the cost was for building factories and producing the fissionable materials, with less than 10% for development and production of the weapons. Research and production took place at more than 30 sites , some secret, across the United States, the United Kingdom and Canada."

Truman allegedly did not even know about the project until AFTER he was sworn into office. Compartmentalization is how they can achieve secrecy with such large numbers of people.

Every "conspiracy" is different, but make no mistake, conspiracy has existed since the dawn of man. To automatically write something off due to incompetence or large numbers of people knowing about it is foolish.
This isn't the post office we're talking about. The CIA doesn't just go pull some bum off the street to be an operative. These are highly educated, highly trained, very intelligent, and very dedicated individuals.
