It wasn’t very long ago, relatively speaking, that the miniature radar ‘station’ detonators in our WWII anti-aircraft shells were declassified. So we had miniaturization capabilities in 1940s.
And then there was 'The Thinking Machine' nobody knew about.
McNamara testified that there wasn’t enough titanium in the world to build an Oxcart, even as they were actually in early production while U2s were being built.

Schwarzkopf decided to go through the back door because our own logistic people told him it couldn't be done, so he knew Saddam wouldn't believe it.
