    This is something that's been rattling around in my head for a good while-



    When Lennox makes his report to the superiors, he deliberately keeps Optimus Prime off-camera.

    Why are those higher-up in command not allowed to see the Autobots?????

    Because Prime is that damn sexy, those poor uniformed types wouldn't be able to take it as they are stuck in an office all day and would explode in a fit of militant-sexual-frustration.

    Well that's one way of thinking.

    well hacking and stuff being what it is

    do you think its a good Idea to be sending streaming video across anything that has giant alien robot on it.

    The military does have its own network yes and all that would mean 0 leaks normally but it could be that there are only so many individuals who know about it even with in that room so putting them on camera serves a extra secrecy on something that is supposed to be top level of secrecy.

    Simple truth; The military loves secrets, even between themselves.

    Need to know basis, and the government doesn't need to know.

    The camera would explode from Optimus' sexiness.

    Because they are Robots in Disguise. Can't really be disguised if they are plastered all over video...

    Actually everything about that whole setup was wrong. The leaders wouldn't be talking out in the open like that with all those other people around. If anything it would have been only Lennox and Optimus, and maybe some key staff. Certainly not in an open hangar. There would have been some serious OPSEC and COMSEC issues going on there.

    Actually the whole thing about it taking place in Diego Garcia made me laugh...I've been there. Trust me, it was like doubling Montana for Hawaii.

    Imagine if Soundwave saw OP alive and on earth.

    They didn't put optimus in the shot because OP identity would be compromised and that would start another war

    True but still, it was all voice. Without visuals no one can really prove anything, only assume.

    People would probably think it BS if they heard people talking about robots and aliens over something like that. Though truthfully, if you hacked military computers and heard that, there is a good reason to believe it.

    Still, they can cover it up a lot easier without visual proof.
