Unacknowledged Special Access Programsby Joël v, bibliotecapleyades.net

For example, during the long hours that these membership lists were put together, I've always paid attention to individuals who might have been involved with different intelligence agencies. Information remains scarce, but it happens relatively often that you come across someone who is involved with the CIA. This isn't such a surprise, because there's no doubt that the CIA is very closely allied with the most important financial and political institutions in the United States.
On the other hand, I seldom or never came across individuals involved with Army intelligence, Navy Intelligence, Air Force Intelligence, the DIA, the NRO, or the NSA. Le Cercle is a bit of an exception, because it's focused on bringing together members of the international intelligence agencies. And, of course, there is the science-oriented JASON Group, which has at least one former NSA employee and two founders of the NRO.
All in all, besides their official functions it's very hard to get an idea of what most of these intelligence agencies are doing. Personally, I am always looking for leads in the longest and most obvious cover up ever; that one about the UFO phenomenon, in which I include the cattle mutilations (take a look here). There's no indication that the average Pilgrims Society or Trilateral Commission member has any idea about these subjects, but somewhere these two worlds have to meet. I am anything but an expert on intelligence agencies, but I do want to put some basic information here which I think is important for anyone looking into hidden organizations. It could easily take a couple of years before I write some additional information on this subject, and maybe I never will.
In the U.S. you only have 3 types of classification: Confidential, Secret, and Top Secret. That's it. But this doesn't matter, since the true power of the classification system is the famous 'need to know' policy. Just because you have a Top Secret clearance doesn't mean you can gain access to all the different Top Secret documents of the CIA, Army, Navy, and Air Force.
However, this 3-tiered classification system is not enough to protect some of the more sensitive information. Therefore additional levels of compartmentalization have been created. After a very intensive background check, someone with a Top Secret clearance might obtain an additional Sensitive Compartmented Information (SCI) clearance, under which information is buried that needs to be restricted to even fewer individuals. This TS-SCI clearance had been introduced mainly to stop some higher ranking officers from looking into Top Secret files they don't have any business with.
Most SAPs start out as Unacknowledged Special Access Programs (USAP), better known as Black Projects. The F-117A Nighthawk and the B-2 Spirit are examples of projects that started out as Unacknowledged SAPs.
A DOD manual describes a USAP as follows (1):
Persons involved in a particular USAP are ordered to deny such a program exists. It's not allowed to react with a "no comment", because that way someone immediately suspects something is being hidden and might be motivated to look further into it. Officers not 'accessed' for a USAP, even superior ones, are to be given the same response. The more sensitive the program, the more protection the commanding officer can demand. He could even subject his personnel to lie-detector tests to see whether or not they have been talking about it to anyone. According to a 1997 Senate investigation (2):
There are two versions of the Unacknowledged Special Access Programs. The first one is the regular USAP. These regular USAPs are reported in the same way as their acknowledged versions. In closed sessions, the House National Security Committee, the Senate Armed Services Committee, and the defense subcommittees of the House and Senate Appropriations committees can get some basic information about them. The Secretary of Defense, however, can decide to 'waive' particularly sensitive USAPs. These are unofficially referred to as Deep Black Programs. According to the same 1997 Senate investigation as mentioned earlier:
This leads to the conclusion that only very few people are aware of these waived Unacknowledged Special Access Programs. Congress certainly doesn't get the information it needs to speak out against newly established waived USAPs and I haven't read anywhere that their opinion is actually appreciated. You could also ask yourself if Congress is told the truth about many of the most sensitive Special Access Projects or if their successors are informed about previously activated (waived) USAPs. Even with regular SAPs Congress is ignored at times:
What makes Unacknowledged Special Access Projects even more impenetrable is the fact that a lot of these programs are located within private industry. The U.S. government generally doesn't develop a whole lot. If you look at the defense industry, you have companies like Boeing, Lockheed, Northrop, McDonnell Douglas, TRW, Rockwell, Bechtel, SAIC, or Decision-Science Applications (DSA Inc.), who develop certain technologies for the U.S. government.
This means it's virtually impossible to get information about these projects, because private industry is protected by something called 'proprietary privilege'. You generally can't get any information about a USAP by issuing a FOIA or by annoying a Congressman (National Security), but just in case anyone might be able to succeed, there's always the argument of proprietary privilege of the private industry.
Some of these people, with no one in the project disputing it, are saying that certain Black Programs (USAPs) act as covers for UFO / ET related projects. This means that in an emergency situation a sensitive Black or Deep Black Program could be revealed to the public, while the program behind it remains undiscovered. In a 1997 speech, former astronaut Edgar Mitchell summarizes what the Disclosure Project is all about (5):
According to the Disclosure Project some of black triangles have been developed in Unacknowledged Special Access Projects.
Screenshots taken from 'UFOs, The Footage Archives 1947-1997'.
Pictures of the Belgian sightings have been included as well
as screenshot from 2 recent movies and a drawing of a witness.
A big questions that remains of course is how all these projects are funded. The official black budget of the DoD would be the most likely explanation, but there are 'indications' that the U.S. economy is being plundered for at least $1 trillion every year (yes, about 10% of GNP). Because no one is going to believe this without reading the full original sources, I cached all the mainstream news reports at the bottom of this article.
I extracted the following numbers from these reports:
At the moment, I am wondering who is using who here? Is J.P. Morgan Chase, the core of the American part of the Anglo-American financial empire, being used as a milch cow to fund secret projects of the most unimaginable magnitude? Or, in line with the NWO conspiracy theories, are the bankers of the Pilgrims Society themselves really the ones in control? Or is there some kind of mutual interest here, whereby these bankers fund the Black Projects, while technology and services from these Black Projects keeps them on top of the world? I guess anything is possible at this moment.
By the way, USAPs don't always have to involve the development of new cutting edge technology. In the following case a USAP is used as to a tool to circumvent national and international humanitarian laws. Seymour Hersh, 2004 (8):
All I want at this point is the names of the people who are running all these projects. Check back in a couple of years or so.
The Under Secretary Of Defense
