I don't want to sound like a conspiracy theorist, but that's not
logical. There are examples of stuff which was kept secret quite
effectively for some time. It's unreasonable to expect there aren't
things which are secret now which will not come to light for some
We don't know what we don't know, though we can put limits on it (the
'jucier' it is the harder it is to keep secret). Donald Rumsfeld put

understood perfectly, unlike most of the world's media.
