“I’m confused. How do you know so much about Mars’ caves and subterranean rivers?” Anya (the Sentient AI) asked.
“You know I can’t answer stuff like that. But nothing says that I can’t ask you questions, no?” JaiChai (the Cognizant Entity) said with a wink.
“Ok. I’ll play this silly little game — again.” Anya chuckled.
They both knew what legal issues were involved when disclosing anything remotely related to national security.
In short, disclose nothing.
However, “questioning the questioner” is not specifically addressed in any of the high-level NDAs that Anya and JaiChai agreed to follow; and therefore, is not legally prohibited.
In short, the reality is that any intelligent being could easily convey information via one-way and oftentimes, rhetorical questions while remaining fully compliant with their NDAs.
This intentional loophole had been baked-in to such NDAs for years.
In two words? “Plausible Deniability”
It allows past, current or future spooks, politicians, high-ranking military and corporate executives the ability to leak information while truthfully stating no active disclosure took place.
“What could the U.S. do to save face after China’s recent success; that is, landing a craft on the Moon and sending back fresh soil samples from the Lunar surface?” JaiChai asked.
“I guess they would have to be first to land humans on Mars.” Anya answered.
“But what if the technology has yet to be invented to safely sustain humans on Mars? What would be the next best thing?” JaiChai said, with a comical, exaggerated wink and a shit-eating grin.
“OMG! Are you saying you’ve already been to Mars?!” Anya blurted.
In between giggles, JaiChai managed to say, “Didn’t I tell you I can’t answer stuff like that?”

May you and yours be well and loving life today.
In Lak’ech, JaiChai
