First, a top secret clearance does not mean automatic clearance to see all top secret material. There is such a thing as need to know which disqualifies many who hold top secret clearances from getting into material that they have no need to know (At the risk of starting another thread, let me point out that Robert Dean's claim to have seen the cosmic top secret document about a UFO crash fails at this point... Dean had no need to know and shouldn't have seen the document, if it ever existed). So that fact that Lorenzo had a top secret clearance isn't all that important. Second, he said that he was frequently on the flight line and in the hangars and I really have no doubt about it. The question I would have asked is if he had a "line" badge that allowed him access, what restrictions might have been on the line badge, and if, when he was required for his duties on the flight line of hangars, if he was escorted by someone else whose line badge didn't have the same restrictions. Well, I guess that's more than one question, but the point is that he might have been in the hangars and on the flight line frequently, but it could also be that he had to be escorted because to complete his duties did not require unlimited access to the flight line or the hangars. Finally, I might point out that meetings held with the commander of the medical detachment didn't necessarily include everything that was going on at the base. The recovery of an alien craft, if that's what happened, could be accomplished without having to make it known to the medical supply officer, or other members of the medical staff such as the dentists, or most of the nurses. It would not be required that these activities be discussed in front of the full staff, so it is conceivable that Lorenzo might not have been involved and might not have had any knowledge of the events. All of this is just my take on this, based on the information presented. I asked the questions of Lorenzo that I thought important, believed his answers to be accurate and truthful, and found little that was of relevance to the investigation of the case.
