"USA": Beginning of the secrecy and of the fraud at the end of the 1950s
The argument that the Apollo program had never been kept secret because there were too many people involved is not a solid argument as it can be proved, because a little clique can mislead 100,000s of people when the clique has got the power and the mass does not know anything (Wisnewski, p.128-129). The experience of secrecy and fraud of the public by the "American" atmosphere flight begins even much earlier, actually with the Discoverer / Corona program with espionage satellites since the end of the 1950s. The fraud was a system even then already.
[It's possible to generalize the activity of secrecy for all dictator systems: Napoleon, Stalin, Hitler, Pinochet, and also CIA, Johnson, Nixon, Bush. The principle of secrecy of the truth and the misleading of the masses does not stop until now. Human rights are not interesting enough for the dictator systems of today].
Discoverer / Corona program: The precise exchange of freight before liftoff
The liftoff of the Discoverer / Corona espionage satellites is performed on the Vandenberg Air Force Base. More or less all is a lie (Wisnewski, p.130).

According to contemporary witness Bill Obenauf from armament enterprise "Lockheed" the Discoverer program is deliberately published as a "research program" though it's a military espionage program. To fool the public there are several "operation techniques":
-- the official freight for the "research" is exchanged in the last moment before liftoff by a military freight
-- mice for an experiment are of plastic for "goof fotos"
-- heart beats of the mice which are said to be from an atmosphere flight are artificial
-- the mice starts are masking military projects
-- a kind of masking is e.g. to build monkey capsules which are never used at the end

Head of the Discoverer program is not the NASA as it is lied officially but the CIA under head of secret service Richard Bissell, a notorious faker of the civil atmosphere flight ("space flight") (Wisnewski, p.130).
Add to this Bissell is a mafia collaborator against Fidel Castro and against Chequevara. There is a project to poison them both.
(In: Profile: Richard Bissell; www.cooperativeresearch.org/entity.jsp?entity=richard_bissell)
CIA is founding an own office for the Discoverer missions, the "Black Corona Office" under leadership of General Osmund Ridland. By this "Discoverer" is in fact "Corona" and it's an absolute espionage program to bring espionage satellites into an orbit over the "Soviet Union" (Wisnewski, p.130).
[So the Sputnik and the Corona projects just come up at the same time. If one considers that "US" banks are financing the "Soviet Union" there can be seen a tactic to bring the whole world population into a panic: by the CIA who is probably also conducting the "Soviet Union"].

First "testing flights" with Discoverer / Corona espionage satellites
All in all there are 14 official test flights before the military. But the truth is another one: There are no test flights, but the first 12 espionage flights fail, with a camera on board.

Crash of the first Discoverer / Corona espionage satellites - the procedure of fraud and manipulation of the masses at the NASA
The first Discoverer / Corona espionage satellite in 1959 ("Discoverer 1") seems to be good. The Air Force reports the liftoff on half of the height and reports this rashly on a press conference. But then Discoverer 1 cannot be found on the radar any more. Three weeks are told lies and lies to the public about a satellite flying around though there is no satellite any more. NASA thinks firmly the satellite crashed into the sea.
(In: N 24: Geheime Satelliten ("Secret Satellites"), 22d Aug 2004; Wisnewski, p.130)
NASA and the "US" government realize that such manipulations against the public are functioning absolutely well (Wisnewski, p.131).
During the next period of time the secrecy and the fraud is not changed until 1995 up to Clintons resolution to release the espionage fotos, inclusively the secret procedures at the Apollo program (Wisnewski, p.133).
Add to this the only control point, the other super power "Soviet Union", has not the courage to discover something about the enemy because also the regime of the "Soviet Union" wants to keep many things "secret" (Wisnewski, p.131).
Add to this there are many taboo barriers within the Discoverer / Corona program, and if the taboo barriers were not respected the staff would loose their job. Nobody is speaking (Wisnewski, p.131).
And "scientists" can be deceived very well:
-- capsules for monkey are exchanged one day before liftoff by a capsule with a camera, and this "functions" (according to Bill Obenauf, insider from Lockheed) (Wisnewski, p.131)
-- when there are clouds over the "Soviet Union" and the espionage satellite cannot fly some simple lies are spread, e.g. according to Bill Obenauf there is said there is a "freight problem" in the rocket. By this the whole Discoverer Corona program is stopped for a while, some 1,000 people are waiting and do not know precisely why (Wisnewski, p.132)
-- curious questions are answered by fantastic answers which make all ridiculous (Wisnewski, p.132-133)
-- engine troubles or other troubles are explained with pretexts and never admitted. The parts of crashed satellites which had a self-destruction mechanism have to be collected. For this special action is performed, e.g. to look for a lens in the sand of a beach etc., so nobody will find the lens in the sand and a suspicion could come up (Wisnewski, p.133).
According to Wisnewski for secrecy of a program "it's enough that a hard, isolated core crew knows the truth, and the other big part of the [uninformed] followers only knows their task in their job." (Wisnewski, p.132).
(orig.: "genügt [gemäss Wisnewski] in Wirklichkeit ein harter, abgeschotteter Kern von Mitwissern und eine grosse Zahl von [unwissenden] Mitläufern, die lediglich das wissen, was sie für ihren Job benötigen". (Wisnewski, S.132)
[And because NASA is under military order everybody who speaks out the truth will loose his job or is even murdered].
All in all the test run of secrecy of the Discovery / Corona program is functioning smoothly and is continued in all other "programs" up to the Apollo program and even after it. Shortly before the Apollo liftoff e.b.the freight in the capsules is exchanged, and the freight are the astronauts who regularly are leaving a short time before liftoff (Wisnewski, p.131).
Discoverer / Corona 13: The first canister with a film is brought down
Only the 13th Discoverer / Corona flight, this time without a camera, is successful. The try to bring a canister on a parachute over the sea (to perform a splashdown of a canister) is "successful".
(In: Jeffrey T. Richelson: U.S. Satellite Imagery, 1960-1999; 14.4.1999;
The "SU" launches an "American" espionage airplane - and now the mood is hot in the world
The "Soviet Union" launches an old fashioned "American" espionage airplane "U2". The material damage for the "USA" is not much. But in the public there can be provoked a big unrest (Wisnewski, p.130).
"USA" maintain first it had been a "weather airplane". Only when the "Soviet" government presents the pilot Francis Gary Powers and presents the airplane which is partly intact the Stupid States have to admit their lie.
-- Peter Müller: Star Trek. The American Dream Continued? 2003, S.80;
-- U-2 Crisis of 1960; http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/U-2_Crisis_of_1960)
But the new generation of Discovery / Corona satellites is ready (Wisnewski, p.130).
[So it would be logic if the launch of the espionage airplane would be a CIA provocation].
All in all the "US" government is loosing now the confidence of the "US" population the first time, and the split becomes larger and larger with every crime the "US" government is committing, with a culmination point in the media during Watergate in 1972.
(In: Peter Müller: Star Trek. The American Dream Continued? 2003, S.80;
[And a war tribunal against the criminal "USA" does not exist until now...]
Snatching airplanes for snatching the little capsules with the foto films
"USA" develop a technique how space capsules on a parachute can be snatched in the air by another airplane. The airplanes are adapted and the pilots are said they had to snatch peaks of rockets, and even higher ranks do not know what is going on. They don't know that in the little space capsules are espionage films from the espionage satellites.
(In: N 24: Film: Geheime Satelliten ("Secret Satellites"); 22d Aug 2004; Wisnewski, p.133).

The 14th Discoverer / Corona flight is a success with a snatched canister in the air
After one Earth orbit a canister is dropped from the satellite on a parachute. With specially adapted airplanes the canister is snatched out the air by the specially equipped aircraft.
(In: Jeffrey T. Richelson: U.S. Satellite Imagery, 1960-1999; 14th April 1999;
The airplane are snatching with their grip arms the parachutes of the canisters from above. The "US" special force is on Hawaii. For the little space capsules (canisters) are chosen mostly lonely landing spots in the South Pacific where only a small number of humans live and where is hardly any control.
(In: Werner Walter: Cenap-Report, April 2004; http://cenap.alien.de)
[This means: The "USA" and the "SU" can do in the atmosphere what they want without control of the media].
The "US" rocket espionage in the "Soviet Union" by Discoverer / Corona satellites
Up to 1964 the Discoverer / Corona espionage satellites are photographing all ICBM sites of the "Soviet Union" [all rocket stations, ICBM=Intercontinental Ballistic Missile]. And also the camera equipment is always better and better which has heavy conditions in the Earth orbit in the high atmosphere.
(In: Jeffrey T. Richelson: U.S. Satellite Imagery, 1960-1999; 14 April 1999;
Clinton's espionage fotos from the 1960s
Clinton's resolution to release the espionage fotos of the Discoverer / Corona program is no sensation because the fotos are absolutely old fashioned (Wisnewski, p.133).
[This is the absolute proof that the Discoverer / Corona programm was not a scientific one but was a military espionage program. At the same time the secrecy over the Apollo program which stands under military order is functioning yet until today...]
since Bush regime
Secrecy tactic remains the same, e.g. in the criminal Bush regime
The secrecy tactic to mislead the world masses into wars with 1,000s of deaths is going on with faked 11 Sep 2001 and war procedures of a stupid "USA" which is not signing the human rights until today but is proclaiming "Freedom" always. Of course a dictator would lose the dictatorship when human rights would be signed...
