Umm, You can look a that
Reagan photo (they
made that not me) and still
insist the Sentinels are a big secret and the public did not know they even existed? It's not exactly a 'Where's Waldo?' moment.
Seriously, they have shown one standing guard over that Presidents inauguration so that's either 1981 or 1985, so they are
public knowledge prior to the OT. The public aint blind.
Only way for them to have remained a secret as you state is for us to ignore the viral site completely (is so then what's the point of them making the thing?)
Now the info there does allow for the Mark I being taken out of service for a spell covering the OT due to it's production stopping in 1996 (though they do state the earlier models are
all still in service prior to the Mark X, so not unlike how old air planes or cars can remain in service for decades after production has ceased), but they were still first built in 1973 and they were
in the public eye (you can''t exactly hide an 18ft tall robot running around after all).
So either the viral site info is accurate or its a lie. If it's accurate then the public does
know about them and has done since 1985 at the very latest.
