On November 28th, Walter Pincus at The Washington Post published an article about an interesting project posted up for bids by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. The project was for the construction of a five-story underground facility intended to house the Israeli Defense Forces. The name of the site is mysteriously referred to as “Site 911″. Pincus reported that the listing described the site as a $100 million facility with classrooms, an auditorium, a laboratory and even shock-resistant doors and protective materials to block radiation from the outside. The site is also highly classified, with only Western contractors allowed to bid, and apparently the Corps notice also stipulated, “The employment of Palestinians is also forbidden.” Apparently when it comes to national security, equal opportunity employment is tossed out the window.
Browsing Secret Military Bases
It seems that nearly every government has its secrets. Most of these secrets involve the military; whether it is weapons development, defense research, or the facilities themselves. Russia, like many of the world’s nations has its fair share of secrets. This is a throwback from the Cold War Soviet Union that the country was once a part of. Even though the Cold War is over, modern Russia still has its fair share of secrets. Many of those secrets come in the form of underground military bases. Below is a short list of underground Russian military base from past and present.
Here at Top Secret Writers, we’ve often covered stories about secret military bases – either suspected current ones or declassified ones from the past. While it’s almost certain that the U.S. has a number of top secret underground military bases in the U.S. and probably elsewhere in the world, it is interesting to observe what technologies the U.S. military uses to try to locate buried facilities built by other nations. Some clues to what sort of technology the U.S. uses to uncover such underground bases is provided in a May 2000 paper written by Lieutenant Colonel Eric Sepp at the Air War College at Maxwell Air Force Base. In the paper, Colonel Sepp examined some lessons learned by the military in conflicts such as the Persian Gulf War, and what sort of technologies were developed by the military as a consequence. Those technologies are used to detect the construction or presence of underground facilities, and even how those facilities are set up and what they’re being used for. The sort of underground sites examined in the paper are those that are typically buried “hundreds of feet below the surface”, or into the side of a mountain, and might also be protected by walls of solid rock.
When a government decides that a military base is obsolete, it sometimes tries to update the structure. However, government officials often find it more cost effective to just abandon the outdated base and build a new one elsewhere. Similarly, if a certain base is no longer needed at all, then once again they simply just abandon it instead of spending the money required to operate and maintain a facility that is no longer required. Below are five abandoned military bases that can be found across the globe.
When WikiLeaks was first founded and started releasing formerly classified military and government documents from around the world, I was ecstatic. As an independent journalist focused on obtaining the unbiased and unwashed truth about corruption, I viewed WikiLeaks with a great deal of admiration – anticipating that the world of black projects and extreme government secrecy was finally coming to an abrupt end. However, what events early in Wikileaks’s life revealed, and what the latest release of Guantanamo files confirm, is that Wikileak’s founder Julian Assange appears more interested in framing the discussion around the release of documents, rather than the actual release of information itself.
The Soviets were great fans of underground tunnels, towns, fortresses and systems. Former eastern-bloc countries such as Poland and East Germany are littered with various underground structures, which were mostly closed down when the USSR began pulling out of eastern Europe in the late eighties and early nineties. Some were blown up or filled in. Those that remain are barricaded and normally protected by the army of whatever country they exist. A secret tunnel system with its own metro which mirrors the Moscow subway is supposedly in existence to this very day.
From 1929 through most of 1945, the Japanese operated a top secret facility with the sole purpose to produce poison gas used in chemical warfare. The facility is located on a small island located in the Inland Sea of Japan and is only accessible by ferries from Tadanoumi and Ōmishima. The facility was so secret that the Japanese actually removed the island, Okunoshima Island, from all maps. During its period of activity, the facility produced over six kilotons of mustard gas. It has been defunct and abandoned for nearly 40 years, but its infamous legacy lives on. Many people lost their lives or loved ones to the gas that was produced there. Many others are still suffering from side effects from exposure during the manufacturing process.
The moon has always been the stage for conspiracy theorists and their ideas. From proposing that the 1969 Apollo Moon landing was a hoax to the secret motives of the NASA Moon bombings, conspiracy theorists have no shortage of ideas when it comes to the Moon. The same holds true for the Nazis. There are theories abound that involve secret Nazi technology and Mysticism. Both the moon and the Nazis are so familiar, yet at the same time so foreign that they are at the heart of many of the world?s most famous theories. Therefore, it goes without saying there are theories that combine these two subjects. The most common theory is that of the German Moon Base. German Moon Base Theory Details Many of these researchers theorize that the Nazis had landed on the moon much earlier than the 1969 Apollo moon landing. A few propose this happened as early as 1942. Much of this theory is based on the idea that the Nazis were researching and experimenting with new technologies in the fields of propulsion and rocketry.
World War II was a war that impacted every country across the globe. So much so, that most countries reserved every available resource for the war effort. These resources included science and technology. Throughout WWII, each side spent tremendous amounts of money on the research and development of weapons and defenses to give themselves the upper-hand over their opponents. Over time, these secret projects were either abandoned, put into use, or still remain under a heavy veil of rumor and myth. Germany, in particular, was pouring money into their research and development in an attempt to gain that upper-hand over the Allies. Many staples of war can trace their heritage back to German research projects of WWII. While others, such as the alleged “Nazi UFO,” were so unusual that they never made it to the production line. The Nazi UFO (Flying Saucer) One of these ?secret? projects that pop up immediately is the Nazi UFO of the 1940s. The trouble with this project is that if it existed, it is associated with a lot myth and rumor. Supposedly, the ?Order of the Black Sun? researched and developed this and similar projects. These projects allegedly encompassed a series of manned and unmanned machines. Prototypes are rumored to have been built. Although a lot of details float around on the web that could make this a plausible project, there is also a lot of sketchy science that makes the idea of a Nazi UFO tough to swallow.
If you’ve never heard of the secret government installation in South Mountain, Maryland, then today I would like to introduce you to the legend and the conspiracy. Most people have heard of the amazing Civil War battles that took place in and around South Mountain. The state was a major flash point between the Union and Confederacy. General Robert E. Lee invaded Maryland in September 1862 in his bid for Harper’s Ferry. Union Major General George McClellan countered in Federick, Maryland before heading to South Mountain. The historic mountain itself became an epicenter of fierce battles, particularly in Crampton’s, Turner’s and Fox’s Gaps mountain passes. During these battles, countless soldiers on both sides died upon the mountain. Considering the historic and military importance of the site, it is no surprise that there are rumors of a secret government installation in South Mountain, Maryland.
