Recently, the Coast to Coast website ran an article from a security website about the hidden sensors near Area 51. Homer Jay started a thread about
these on ATS here:
....When I read the story on the Coast to Coast site I immediately put a link up to it on an alumni page my old college has (that allows people to
edit a mini-blog for themselves). Within a few minutes I received a letter from the girl who was my RA (Resident Advisor) from my first year at
college. Her father had worked for the State Department... and I remember her telling me a variety of interesting stories in school about weird
things she saw around the house (mostly regarding telecommunications protocols her father had to use)... so I opened her letter immediately. This is
part of what she wrote:
"...I wanted to let you know there's another [alumnus of our college] aware of the government's hidden sensors. In the DC area, particularly in
Northern Virginia, there are hidden sensors in strange places that have an unknown government purpose. When ordinary civilians get too close to them,
actual G-men in black vans (probably SUVs these days) appear and tell you to go away. This is crazy in a populated area, and there are lots of stories
floating around about people who have come upon them. One is supposed to be in my home town, Reston. (Reston was developed in the 1960s in part
because it is just outside of the nulear blast zone for Washington and is an easy commute from both Langley and DC.) There's a major concert venue in
Manassas that had to redo some of its access road plans because one road apparently would have interferred with a sensor."
Now... that's what she wrote. I have no reason to doubt her.
I know that stories that are based on anonymous sources can be criticized for their legitimacy... and that saying that a girl you know has a dad who
works for the state department doesn't prove anything... but I consider this a legitimate source of info. Yes, ATS (and the net, in general) is
loaded with "I know a guy..." stories... but, I think her comments DO point to a bigger story.
And WHY is it a bigger story? Because, if she's right, the government has sensors in residential areas that are far away from military bases. The
Area 51 sensors (even the ones on public lands) can be excused for defense reasons (almost)... but, if the remote suburbs of washington are bugged...
does this imply that there's something in the area the government wanst to make sure is hidden? An underground base near DC, for example?
I don't mean to take away from Homer Jay's thread... I just thought that, when you think about it, that this is a different subject (but one that
involves the same equipement)... so i started this thread. If the mods think it's the same subject they can lock it if they'd like to.
