I'm smitten by this theory as well because it just seems implausible.
If it were true, it would probably be too mind-blowing for the average citizen to comprehend.

"The evidence is a huge magnetic anomaly on the east coast of the lake's shoreline. As the first SOAR flight crossed over to the lake's east side, the magnetometer dial swung suddenly. The readings changed almost 1,000 nanotesla from the normal 60,000 nanoteslas around Vostok. A tesla is the standard measure of magnetism. Studinger typically finds anomalies of 500-to-600 nanotesla in places where volcanic material has poured out of the ground
"When we first saw this huge magnetic anomaly, that was very exciting," Studinger said.
Usually magnetic anomalies are much smaller and it takes some effort to distinguish the anomaly from normal daily changes in the magnetic field. In this case there was no confusion.
"This anomaly is so big that it can't be caused by a daily change in the magnetic field," Studinger said.
The anomaly was big in another way, encompassing the entire Southeast corner of the lake, about (65 b 46 miles) 105 km by 75 km. The size and extremity of the magnetic anomaly indicated the geological structure changes beneath the lake, and Studinger guessed it might be a region where the earth's crust is thinner.
To create the type of topography found at Lake Vostok, the earth's crust was probably stretched, thinning one to three percent as it pulled taut, Studinger said."

Although I doubted that the elusive Ms. Shingteller would actually return my message, I thought that it was still worth a try. I was surprised, however, when the voice on the answering machine did not correspond to that of the spokesperson, but to another functionary of the NASA Public Information Office. It would appear that Ms. Shingteller had taken some time off after the conference that would make her a household name in conspiracy circles around the world. My question, in any event, was straightforward: why didn’t the press release regarding the sudden distancing of NASA and JPL with the Lake Vostok project appear among the ones publicly available on the web (www.nasa. gov)?

Also the film "The Secret Land" made by the US NAVY was 'lost' until recently.. and it has all the key players in it with an opening from Forrestal himself...
Noe they called the film SECRET LAND and near the end, when Byrd's plane returns after being missing... the narrator says this...
"Safe! Safe! Good going! The greatest exploration flight of all history has ended in success, the flight beyond the south pole, the flight beyond imagination."
So while they do not show us any strangeness in the film, they sure drop teasers.
