Not to mention say if you were going to use an airport, why choose denver over say, Albuquerque where the airport is litterally on an airforce base that houses a national lab and part of the airforce research lab already and the land was/is already government owned. It makes much more sense to do it that way than to make a military installation under a civilian airfield that is not already on federal land or co-located with a military installation.

moreover, I have yet to hear an even remotely plausible explanation of why the gov't will build something like this under a major airport. My dad taught me well in this regard, follow the money. The Gov't owns huge amounts of uninhabited land all over the west. It simply makes no sense to build something shady in that location. It could have been done more quietly, for less money and with more control at dozens upon dozens of location. Give me anything, one reason why this location provides any advantages, either stategically or financially. All I ever here is that "well it's the last place anyone would look". Apparently not, since this airport is scrutinized on the basis of what some weird murals? a mystery keypad? Is something going on under Denver international, damn right it is, it's a giant baggage sorting system, one of the main improvements cited for the airport to begin with.
sorry, I need A LOT more proof on this one.

Yeah, those tunnels... Service tunnels. You wouldn't want to access the track via terminals. That would be dangerous and inconvenient for the customers. It's pretty standard in all underground transportation systems.

I recently moved to Denver.
There is a woman in my office who is from a military family and when I mentioned to her the idea of a secret underground military facility under DIA, she immediately said, "yes it's true". Don't shoot the messenger... just conveying a statement from an outsider.

Honestly, though, with all the mention and imagery of stonemasons, one has to wonder just what their connection to this is. Are they merely the sponsors of the time capsule? And what's with the whole "most worshipful" text thrown about as a prefix?
taken UNDER the airport, where he was surprised to
see damn near an entire small town under there

Just for kicks, I've heard that the roof is designed to look like the snow covered Rockies. Of course, this could just be a cover, but I just wanted to throw it out there as a possible legit explanation. Not to mention, roofs such as those would be great for handling large snow loads as they would slide right off.
