The files were only known to one man. With the Shield created all he would have to do was work in his lab for the next 50 years and America would one day be a country that could tell generation after generation about the richest nation in the world.
The funding for the progam was an extreme imperative. Where did all the money come from. How would it be kept safe until the day when the Shield could be used.
You have to understand...there are secerts in the world then there was this project. To make this simple the money came from your taxes. With a simple vote that you cast on your ballot the decision was made to make this a reality.
i.e.(that means)Women; remember to vote for Spider-man.
When the metal was created the man with the files made sure it would be done right.
For the man with the files on the metal bones he had an amount of time to work with. How this time was allowed was arranged for the man so that he could achieve the truest test of power ever before originated on this earth.
It would only occur this one time and the risk would be so great that there would be a chance that it would cause the collapse of the entire world order. The Weapon X program would dare the nation to open it's doors.
Where are all the files today?
Where are all the answers to the lost years spent building the projects?
Most of the information can be found in modern fiction...in books that will one day teach the world to think of itself as a place for people to ask the questons and answers that will keep the books in the hands of the person with the light to shine on the pages.
Buy a book and find a way to say thank you.
