in 2001 - when i think the whitepaper was presented in 2008 - he says he
was working on developing something else at that time

i think you are right - i know from dealing with ppl who have signed
agreements re classified info that they can be kinda obsessed with that -
he may have been referencing that instead

journalist can be totally fraudulent for sure but others in the article
