(Research, third rail topic.)
|Black projects are programs that are not supposed to leak to the general public. The projects are often utilized in structural deep events. They are funded by a black budget. While some become public - if not by limited hangouts - most are not meant to be discussed.|
Black projects are clandestine projects that are not supposed to be revealed by governments, intelligence agencies and their contractors in any way. The official US term is a "Special Access Program". Black projects are often not listed in public files (or only with code names) and are funded by a black budget. Black projects are often made in a black site and used in covert operation. While black projects are given an official narrative when being published, some black projects are state-secret and others end with all their traces deleted, at least officially.
Most black projects are ordered by governments in good faith. Not everything needs to be made public. Some things are made to protect a country's borders. Revealing the development of these projects or their black budgets would put the whole purpose in danger of being realized. Wikipedia reports that "A black budget article by the Washington Post, based on the information given by Edward Snowden, detailed how the US allocated $52.8 billion in 2012 for the black budget." Black projects and their assigned budget have code names when funded with government money. Military contractors can also start their own black projects, to sell to governments later on.
While some black projects can be seemingly innocent high-tech experimental reconnaissance planes, many black projects are used by governments for nefarious purposes. The Tuskegee syphilis experiment serves as a good example.
In some cases, these projects can be revealed after completion such as the Manhattan Project, several high-tech planes from Lockheed such as the TR-3 Black Manta, or in limited hangouts, such as Osama Bin Laden's CIA connections. Other known cases include several CIA projects, such as MKULTRA (as many files are allegedly deleted) or Project STARGATE. In some cases, however, the clandestine projects are revealed but as a limited modified hangout or with an official narrative and official opposition narrative given to divert from the most damaging pin-points. A good example of this is the Abu Ghraib torture and prisoner abuse. While the abuse was revealed and 17 soldiers were removed from duty, many responsible individuals like John Yoo (who signed off on these actions) were not convicted but instead corporate media mostly focused on the personal stories of the convicted soliders and blaming 9-11 for the need, even decades later.

|Black site||“A small group of people in Johnston County NC are investigating their state’s role in the CIA's torture and rendition program. Last fall, they had a series of public hearings on the subject and on May 7th they're planning to meet with their commissioners in an effort to compel their county's very conservative board of commissioners to issue a ban on the use of public resources for rendition or torture, and to publicly acknowledge what they found: that a CIA contractor called Aero operating out of the local county airport, handled some 80% of rendition flights between September 2001 and March 2004.”||Vice News||2018|
|Black site||“The European Parliament denounces the lack of co-operation of many member states and of the Council of the European Union with the investigation; Regrets that European countries have been relinquishing control over their airspace and airports by turning a blind eye or admitting flights operated by the CIA which, on some occasions, were being used for illegal transportation of detainees; Calls for the closure of [the US military detention mission in] Guantanamo and for European countries immediately to seek the return of their citizens and residents who are being held illegally by the US authorities; Considers that all European countries should initiate independent investigations into all stopovers by civilian aircraft [hired by] the CIA; Urges that a ban or system of inspections be introduced for all CIA-operated aircraft known to have been involved in extraordinary rendition”||European Parliament||2006|
|Black site||“They always followed the same procedure. We were always told to keep away. The planes would stay at the end of the runway, often with their engines running. A couple of military vans from the nearby intelligence base would go up to them, stay a while and then drive off, out of the airport. "I saw several of these flights but never saw inside the vans because they had tinted windows and they never stopped at the terminal building”||Mariola Przewlocka||2006|

|UFO||“So, are Unacknowledged Special Access Programs out of control in the United States? Good question. The term "Special Access Program", let alone "Unacknowledged Special Access Program", is only very seldom mentioned in the media. For example, these terms have not been mentioned at all in relation to the NSA spy revelations in recent years of William Binney and Edward Snowden, even though one would expect that many of the NSA spy programs as PRISM, Stellar Wind, Boundless Informant and JTRIG fell into this category. The term "Special Access Program" did recently surface with regard to the Hillary Clinton email scandals. As Obama's secretary of state, Clinton, against protocol, maintained a private mailbox full of information on all kinds of Special Access Programs. No details on these programs have been provided.”||Joël van der Reijden|
