i wouldn't hold your breath on that. I think the US works WITH shield, not equal to shield. the only knowledge we have of the US military working with shield for sure, is from THE INCREDIBLE HULK where they had access to shield computer networks for tracking hulk. And in all honesty... of course shield would work with them on that... they're doing the dirty work in finding (and keeping tabs on hulk) for them, so they don't have to waste there resources. That's no proof that the military knows what's going on at shield
