Why go to all that trouble when a proven technology exists that is almost untraceable. Why irradiate the debris removal teams and the run the risks of disposing of radioactive debris.

Try googling Iron Mountain. It is totally obfuscated by the company called Iron Mountain that seems to be world wide and does document shredding and high security storage, and the main base of which is IN the old limestone mine inside Iron Mountain.
You can get some info on the mine by googling 'iron mountain limestone mine'
An NBC News segment on the Iron Mountain storage facility at Boyers, Pennsylvania. Iron Mountain is a high-security storage facility in a former limestone mine at Boyers, Pennsylvania near the city of Butler in the USA. It has been in operation since 1951. It is here that Bill Gates stores his Corbis photographic collection in a refrigerated cave 220 feet (67 m) underground.
One huge underground shelter as well?.....

Your theory on tunnels is very real to me. I live in SW PA"coal country" (every home I have ever lived in has been undermined and I have "subsidence" insurance). The really interesting thing about "owning" a home in this part of the country is you DO NOT "own"'the mineral rights OR underground right of ways UNDER your property. This was indifference to coal only....sure.
We all know of the Greenbrier in WV...how foolish to believe no other such facilities exist under the bedrock of mining region areas. The "mine subsidence" (blame it on coal) could cover a myriad of damages and keep the populace from asking questions (you felt your house shift & shake---why its that 80 year old coal seam causing the damage.)
I can't think of the name of the "mountain" but there is a hallowed out limestone mine (about an hour or so east of Pittsburgh) that movie studios store film cans in (among other business). It's very well known...but the same types of also abandoned mines could be the very "public" yet overlooked portals to entire networks of underground facilities.edit on 21-11-2012 by Glinda because: Typos--using my cell phone.
The name of the limestone mine just came to me...it's IRON MOUNTAIN...and it's north of Pittsburgh, near Butler PA.edit on 21-11-2012 by Glinda because: Remembered the name of the facility I had mentioned

What happens to these underground bunkers if there's an earthquake nearby?
