The website for a movie, "Raising Atlantis", has an article/image titled Photo Reveals Secret Dig Beneath U.S. Capitol . Of course the U.S. Denies Secret Dig. So we have either a governmental conspiracy for some unknown purpose or perhaps a movie industry conspiracy to attract attention to the movie.

The White House on Tuesday denied that a secret dig appears to be underway beneath the National Mall and that an exclusive photo released last week by the online entertainment network @lantisTV merely shows the construction of a new underground visitors center.

“The visitor’s center has been planned for years, and its costs have not been without controversy or publicity,” said White House spokesman Scott McClellan. “Construction has been going on in plain view of the American taxpayers. What we are witnessing here is some enthusiastic curiosity prompted by movies like ‘National Treasure’ and novels like Raising Atlantis. It’s entertainment, folks. For the record: There are no secret U.S. digs underway in Antarctica or the National Mall. There is no link between Atlantis and the founding of the United States of America. Period.”

McClellon had no comment on why the Department of Justice sought to block the photo’s release for eight months, nor why the White House issued its comment on a day that President Bush was out of the country.

You be the judge, who do you believe? If only this was a Michael Moore film, then we would know this is movie is all true.

Yes, and many felt that "The Blair Witch Project" was true because the website presented the information as factual.

I would urge caution when taking information from Hollywood as fact. The movie studios aren't making films to help educate or expose anything. They simple are money making machines. If what they are presenting garners huge interest in the conspiricy theory segment of the population, (which Hollywood will now be jumping on the band wagon due to the success of "The DaVinci Code", coming soon, and "National Tresure") all the better.

I'm not saying don't belive it, I'd just have a skeptical eye...
