I suggested physical harm. You suggest a threat to humanity.

All I've asked is for someone to explain what the threat is.
This shouldn't violate any oath.

I'm sure you realize this claim of some dire consequences if I
talk bit has been made ad nauseam. Yet I've never seen ANYONE
say what the threat is.

If the threat is real and defined there are ways to deal with it
and eliminate it if its unjust and illegal.

I submit your guy likely doesn't know anything any more
devastating than what Col Corso claimed to know and published in
his book. Yet humanity survives.

No sarcasm intended, perhaps if he read Corso's book he feel
better about talking. I just hate to see potential valuable
information go to the grave.
