Philadephia Experiment - Cover Up?

I am a sucker to mysteries, myths, and the unsolved..  That is why I became very interested with the story of the "Philadephia Experiment" also referred to as "Project Rainbow".  The experiment was an attempt by the US Navy during the WWII to create a ship (U.S.S Eldridge) that could not be detected by radar and invisible to enemy detection.  The plan was to generate massive electromagnetic fields which would bend light and radio waves around the ship, making it invisible to enemy observers.  It was said that the experiment was tried on animals that caused death and deep burns and despite it, the US Navy still proceeded to try it on humans.

The day of the experiment, The electromagnetic field generators were turned on and the U.S.S. Eldridge became nearly invisible.  Everything was fine for the first few seconds, but in a blinding blue flash, the ship completely vanished.  Within seconds it reappeared hundreds of miles away in Norfolk, Virginia and was seen for several minutes.  It disappeared from Norfolk as mysteriously as it had arrived, and reappeared back in Philadelphia Naval Yard. What begun as an experiment in electronic camouflage, ended up as an accidental teleportation of an entire ship and crew to a distant location and back again in a matter of minutes.  However, when they examined the ship, most of the crew were violently sick, missing, and five men were said to be found fused to the metal within the ship’s structure.  According to legend, most of the crew members eventually went insane, but a few retained their sanity only to face further situations. One man sat down to dinner with his wife and child, but then got up from the table, walked through the wall, and was never seen again. Two other sailors were also said to have simply disappeared into thin air and never seen again. Another crew member vanished in the middle of a fight, shocking his opponent. All of these incidents are said to have had witnesses.  Another side effect was of the men getting ‘stuck’ and unable to move or interact with anyone for long periods of time.  According to specialists, this phenomena was said to be a hoax and there is not much information found that isn’t tainted with doubt and speculation. There were 2 main witnesses who claimed the occurence of these events. One committed suicide (Carlos Miguele Allende) and the other was deemed unfit (Al Bielek).

Could any of this have actually occurred? What really happened in Philadelphia on 1943? Has the US government been lying all these years about their technological capabilities and how they have been using them? The questions and mysteries remain...
