I have heard this from a number of different people including one British soldier who witnessed the base and found the extreme high security very different from that or "normal bases" there.

I think part of the idea here is that babylon translates as "Gate of Heaven". However, this is actually incorrect. The people that originally settled in babylon, their language is not properly understood. In the language of the later conquerors, it means something like 'gate of heaven', but thats pretty irrelevant, since they didn't name it 'babylon'.
Not to mention that there's a tv show about a 'stargate'. If there was no TV show, there'd be no story here, imo.

As "stargates" don't actually exist outside the realm of sci-fi, I think we can safely say that the story is utter nonsense.
If the only basis for the rumour is another rumour that a UK serviceman apparently saw extra security round a US base then it is particulary weak.

I highly doubt they are purposefully looking for a stargate despite my dabbling in alternate history. So I'm not worried.
