To those same people mentioned, although not a spokesperson, I would add, Army, Navy, Air Force pilots and associated support personnel often fall into the same category - have something to loose or are not prepared for the economic and social fallout if classified matters discussed. Like the black-budget and secrecy around these aerial craft and hidden agenda’s the numbers of people directly associated and those that were associated with need to know access have grown. The liars, have indeed, made both tactical misjudgments and strategic errors.
Other countries allow their personnel to speak freely on these matters. We don't. That's why they're afraid of the fallout.
But I agree this is a phishing expedition. Soft disclosure.
