secret texas base? really? i've been inside a mountain in massachusetts that almost completely hollow! and very few people in massachusetts even know its there! you mentioned NSA. What snowden is talking about, the NSA already admitted to doing, to PLAYBOY magazine, back in the late 70's/early 80's! SURPRISE. the only thing new in the world is the history you don't know! the only ting the NSA is "guilty" of is adapting to advances in information and signals technology! snowden is a traitor, just like manning! betcha manning is feeling REALLY good about himself now. if he could have kept his mouth shut, and wasn't a complete IDIOT! he could be still proudly serving in the US ARMY! nice job. intell specialist my butt! enjoy rotting in your cell ! and to all you Bi and GAY folks serving on active duty? rock on with your fab selves!
if you really want something to keep yourself up and wondering at night, check this list out!

May be true, may not be true. I certainly don't know. I do however think that IF the government had a secret base/city underground as the story goes they would NOT have truck drivers delivering directly to the base. That makes no sense to me. Here is a "secret base" and we have truck drivers delivering materials like its a Walmart? I don't see that as plausible.
When I was on site at the DOD installation at Bolling AFB, I regularly had lunch with people who to this day, I have NO farking clue what they did. And, you just know, not to ask.
So, were you working for that IT bunch DIA contracts with?
I ate along side foreign soldiers who were there for School of the Americas.....you don't ask...you say hello, you smile...and you eat. That's it. No small talk.
I am often tempted to ask one of them how many non-English speaking Hispanic people are named "Sutherland" or "Goldfarb".edit on 22-1-2014 by Bedlam because: (no reason given)
One time, I made a very simple mistake of asking ONE too many questions about someone did for a living....
I never heard from them again. Not once.
If you're TS/SCI and a stranger/new acquaintance becomes overly curious, you might have to file contact reports EVERY STINKING TIME you talk to them. This usually applies each and every time with a foreign contact, but you have to file pretty much the same thing if they ask about your job in a persistent and suspicious manner. Eventually, if it keeps happening, you end up sucked into an investigation.
In general, it's easier to tell people you work for the USDA as a cow feces analyst or something utterly boring, and see if they quit asking if they're someone you have to be around. If they're NOT someone you have to be around, you blow them off.
eta: OTOH, if you want to make someone go away you'd rather not be around, and you sort of know where they work, you can make them retreat post haste by asking them about their work. In the words of Billy Dee Williams, "works every time"
"Wow, Joe, where do YOU work?"
"You know, I'm an engineer, and I'm really interested in optics. Isn't that what they do in your building? I think orbital angular momentum modulation of lasers is SO interesting...Joe? Come back Joe!"

Such a base, to be built in such a manner, completely underground, would have a very important purpose. It would be either nuclear, or involve testing of some kind, or something that is definitely highly classified and important to national defense. And this being the case, I cannot imagine having thousands of military personnel, many of whom would have to be of low enlisted rank, trudging around the place. It is not impossible, but they wouldn't just send Joe Blow enlisted man to such a base. I have been through the vetting process for a security clearance when I was in the Air Force, and for something this secretive, not that many would pass such a process and be granted that necessary clearance.
Thats my point.... if there were really that many personnel then that means secrecy is compromised.... and lets not forget we live in the internet age now, so its really not that hard to reveal a secret anymore!
Something similar happened to my uncle back in the late 80's. He would transport frozen foods all over the upper east coast. One trip he went on was to an underground facility in Pennsylvania that was built into a mountain. He believed that part, if not all of it was owned by the government. It was absolutely massive. I never knew about it until we were watching an episode of Conspiracy Theory when they went into one of these facilities.
And if this is some sort of major secrete base and would of cost some serious cash to build..... WHY the hell would they employ a civilian to haul some materials and end up showing them the base??? ...........i'm sure they would have a internal transport system to keep it secrete...nah interesting story but BS...
