A lot of the stuff comes out here and there. But time is the key element that proves the past. I never dismiss anything that I cannot prove, does not matter how crazy is.

People forget easy and do not have due dillegence in research or even remember small details.


All I can say that will be interesting years ahead. If you spend most of the time in the Main Stream Media all you are getting is disinformation, opinions, propaganda and an ear full of hate. Real information... not a bit. I ditched it years ago for alternate sources that offer way better information.

That doesn't answer the question.
I'd rather be a free person who fears terrorists, than be a "safe" person who fears the government.

Yes, has been known for a long time by people that know about it. But the vast majority, either did not cared at the time and dismissed it, or too hung up on propaganda that are blind to the facts. Now all the sudden a "secret" is revealed... Secret, is a nice catchy word, got to love journalism :lol:

The Intel FUBAR was known to tech companies for 6 months before the public was informed.
For this period it was a secret to everyone except the tech companies,

In these matters they have a deal to fix things before they are published to avoid exploiting....but that period has never been as long as 6 months.....

But then again this was a colossal fubar so maybe they needed longer time.

If you have your tinfoil hat on you could speculate if there was a period of time given for various agencies in the world (that are US friendly) to exploit the flaw...
