Re: Who is John Harrison (Possible SPOILERS or Insane Babbling)

If Secton 31 in Enterprise and DS9 demonstrated anything, it's that the governing authorities of both Earth and the Federation had a dark and dishonest underbelly that often not only covered up and hid things to keep them from the public but also resorted to striking secret deals with their enemies, violence and even murder to accomplish their goals.

The supposedly pristine, knight-in-shining armor governments of Earth and the Federation would probably be more than capable of hiding the existence of a group of potentially dangerous human beings that had been legally outlawed generations earlier. If that's indeed what happens in the new film it won't be any big revelation to some Trek fans.
