 The United States decisions, in the early months of 1965, to launch a program of reprisal air strikes against North Vietnam, evolving progressiv~ly into a sustained bombing campaign of rising  intensity, were made against a background of anguished concern over the threat of imminent collapse of the Government of South Vietnam and of its military effort against the Viet Congo The air war against the North was launched in the hope ·that it would strengthen Gv~ confidence and cohesion, and that it would deter or restrain the DRV from continuing its support of the revolutionary war in the South. There was hope also that a quite modest bombing effort would be sufficient j that the demonstration of US determination and the potential risks and costs to the North implicit in the early air strikes. would provide the US with substantial bargaining leveragej and that it would redress the "equation of advantage" so that a political settlement might be negotiated on acceptable terms.

Executive Order 13526- Classified National Security Information

This order prescribes a uniform system for classifying, safeguarding, and declassifying national security information, including information relating to defense against transnational terrorism. Our democratic principles require that the American people be informed of the activities of their Government. Also, our Nation's progress depends on the free flow of information both within the Government and to the American people. Nevertheless, throughout our history, the national defense has required that certain information be maintained in confidence in order to protect our citizens, our democratic institutions, our homeland security, and our interactions with foreign nations. Protecting information critical to our Nation's security and demonstrating our commitment to open Government through accurate and accountable application of classification standards and routine, secure, and effective declassification are equally important priorities.

For a while, it seemed the series of experimental aircraft sponsored by the U. S. government had run its course.
Between the late 1940s and the late 1970s, almost thirty designations had been allocated to aircraft meant to explore
new flight regimes or untried technologies. Then, largely, it ended. But there was a resurgence in the mid- to late1990s,
and as we enter the fourth year of the new millennia, the designations are up to X-50.
