It's a Secret Because We Say it's a Secret.

Can it get any more mundanely bizarre? Now the BFEE is refusing to tell anyone what they already told our former "enemy", the Soviet Union, years ago.

So what is it? The location of every US nuclear submarine? The identity of every US spy on the Eurasian land mass? How to make a zillion megaton bomb out of borscht and tsotchkes?

Nope, none of those. It's a simple number: How many nuclear weapons were in the US arsenal during the Cold War. Like I say, they already TOLD the Russkies, and now it's ancient history, on the order of the Third Punic War.

But it's now classified material. This is the most secretive administration in the history of this country, and this is just one small example of it.

So now I suppose that I will be bound for Gitmo when I release the number: It's 42.

That also, coincidentally, in case you recognize it, happens to be the answer to Life, the Universe and Everything...

they have classified more documents than i thought we even owned. what is it that they have to hide? i don't think that they know what can or will be used against them so they classify everything just in case. cowards.
