The above is true to a point. However its been reported that
above Top Secret are at least 9 categories such as DOD Special
Access programs, DOE Special access programs, DCI Sensitive
Compartmentalized Information, not to mention various
restrictions, limitations and everyting else...all on the basis
of need-to-know.

The above writer points out that there are no "Super Top Secret"
or Extra Top Secret security clearances. There are Top
Secret/Codeword levels of clearances. You could easily have
something like Top Secret/Super or Top Secret/Extra. Even though
a person may have a Top Secret security clearence, he or she may
not be cleared to see, or even know about information in some
other highly classified program. Note the AF public affairs
office was able to deny the existence of the Stealth Fighter for
years and they were not lying, because based upon what they had
knowledge of, knew and understood, there was no such thing. When
the powers that be released it the folks in the public affairs
office could be briefed on the topic and then they could state
that it in fact existed etc etc.

Most if not all of the military public affairs office, will be
the last office on planet earth to be briefed or have knowledge
on some highly classified program. Generally they get told just
before the information goes public.


Cheers,

Robert
