I think you are correct. I know someone who was almost run off the road by several government vans travelling towards Mt. Weather on 9/11.
I just went up to Mount Weather with my camera yesterday. It was pouring rain before we got up there but we waited it out and it cleared up. I took
some pictures that don't exist online. I'm going to post them using my photobucket account.
Here's what I've seen and heard personally. I live in Sterling about 25 min away, and my uncle used to work security there back in the 70's. He
didn't really say much about it (It's still a secret.), and now he's still working for the government in the IRS (so that's probably not a good
idea anyways). I met an Ex-Marine in jail once, and he confirmed everything I've read online so far about the place and what my uncle and
grandparents (CIA & FBI) would tell me. Somehow he started telling me about it when I told him my family lived out there.
It's confirmed (as far as I'm concerned) that it is a fully functioning city underground and goes very, very deep underground. From what I have
heard, they have everything down there that we have here. As of about 5 years ago (2004), there were 5,000 people living in the mountain that,
"basically never leave". Allegedly, even "the money stays in there" because of that reason. They have some sort of "artificial sun" lighting
system in there, (Made me think of the movie Truman Show), they have "bowling, shopping, movies, swimming", etc. etc. etc. Almost like an outdoor
city, but all to themselves. There was some other stuff he told me about that I can't clearly remember, so I'm not even going to try to say anything
that isn't accurate.
I'm not sure WHO within the facility is even aware of what is really going on there. I know that thousands of phone calls can be answered at a time
during emergencies. How? Must have a lot of people working there, hmm?
So what my friend and I did was drive up there to snap some pictures and take video if possible. We took some 10 megapixel photos of the front gate,
which is a LOT different from the pictures you find online from years ago. Now, they have these two tall yellow pillars with cameras all the way up
them. My friend describes it this way. "If they shot out water like a car wash, you could clean your car by driving through there." They obviously
can see inside of the vehicle as it passes through, not just regular cameras. That'd be pointless, there are plenty of those around even before you
turn in there.
So we drove up, pulled off to the side of the road, took a few shots, drove under the bridge that connects the two parts of the facility aboveground,
and then swung back around after taking a leak on someones driveway. This time we decided to go ahead and drive up to the gate and see if anyone would
talk to us. We knew that a news crew has been grilled and told to leave. So I just drove through the scanner, went up the hill a little and just kinda
parked there. I wasn't sure if I really wanted to go up to the gate or not.
So, I just kinda sat there like an idiot until about 30 seconds later, after I took a couple of pictures, a black SUV drove up and pulled behind me at
an angle so I couldn't back out. He rolled down his window as I was about to go talk to him. So he asked me, "You know where you're goin'?" I
said, "No, not really, just here to talk to somebody." He said, "Are you visitors?" I said, "No, not really, just wanted to talk to somebody
about the place, I just heard about it." Then he said, "Well, if you're not a visitor, you're going to have to leave right now." Then I pulled
up, he took off, and I turned around and got the hell out of there before I pissed anyone off and got beaten up or got any of my stuff taken.
