The entire question is and was the lack of substance in the story as
presented by CNN.   S. Artesian previously asserted that those
questions only came up because the story had come from CNN; the extent
to which he was misrepresenting that is evident in the posts to which
he was responding.  He now says the CNN story doesn't matter, leaving
me to wonder how he simply channels what information to trust or not
to trust .  Channeling?

Also, to the perfectly legitimate question about the extent to which
prisoners signed those agreements not to go public, Artesian answers
with his insight that the American military establishment was
non-responsive to petitioners.

Nobody seems to know just how many military and civilians the U.S.
authorities have had sign such statements (a sort of after-the-fact
American version of the British Official Secrets agreement).  Since
I've met a number of people who've signed them without ever traveling
in circles where you'd expect that to be the case, my impression is
that it must happen a lot, at least in the post-WWII world in which
I've lived my entire life.

I did think such a caveat was worth raising where such statements (and
the government's refusal to set them aside) have been offered as the
only substantive proof of a very specific conspiracy.
