Not sure what that adds to the discussion, without the content referred to. IRL, I am often asked questions in a public forum. Some I answer. Some I don't. Context matters.Saw a tweet today where a reporter asked a question to a general who was brifing about their report on UAP. I didn't listen to the audio but read the tweet where the General evaded the question.
Some questions (when they have a definite agenda) can never be satisfactorily answered, so they tend to get ignored. I would expect any senior leader to be able to assess such a question.
