The documentary The Most Dangerous Man in America, relating the whereabouts of Daniel Ellsberg in the Pentagon Papers, features very interesting elements about the secrecy community. One of the most surprising revelation is the following, at around 29 minutes into the film... Ellsberg to Henry Kissinger about to take an official position in the Nixon government: ----- "I took that opportunity to tell him something that I'd long thought of telling somebody who's about to enter the world of really high secrecy. And I said “Henry, you’re about to get a lot of clearances, higher than top secret, that you did not know existed. That’s going to have a sequence of effects on you. First, a great exhilaration that you’re getting all this amazing information that you didn’t know even existed. And the next phase is, you’ll feel like a fool for not having known any of this. But that won’t last long. Very soon, you’ll come to think that everyone else is foolish. 'What would this expert be telling me, if he knew what I knew?' So, in the end, you’ll stop listening to them." ----- If there is higher than top secret clearance - clearances that is, as Ellsberg hints at more than one - isn't it logical to assume that there is also "above top secret" classifications?
