142. Reptiloid aliens...
..are also a "hypothetical" threat.

Worrying about all threats equally means that you respond to none of them effectively, as resources are invariably limited.

And it is not as though William Casey actually said these things were credible and feasible, no matter how much you try to make out of a pronoun without referent. If I could summon his ghost to tell you you're an ass and that's not what he meant, I would, but since I can't I'll just have to do it for him.

While you're off worrying about HAARP and tectonic weapons which defy everything learned about physics in the last 400 years, the people of this country are worried about terrorism and further wars. And they are going to dismiss all of those spouting these vapors and megrims as nutjobs, and they will be right to do so. And they will likewise dismiss your more reasonable opinions, which won't be right, but they will do so anyway, because that's how people are.

Why don't you produce some HARD evidence that would justify taking any of this seriously, as opposed to words put in a SecDef's mouth? If you can't, you're wasting everyone's time and hurting a cause you purport to believe in.

Congratulations on becoming the liberal equivalent of a Vince Foster conspiracy theorist. (After all, you don't know for a fact Clinton never had him murdered. So many people have said so many things about it, it CAN'T just be dismissed out of hand, can it? The matter merits serious inquiry, does it not? The reasoning is the same with HAARP and tectonic weapons. Accept the rationality of one, accept the rationality of the other.)
