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!

I think I know what mountain in Massachusetts your talking about if its in the western part of the state, if not then we have at least two hollow mountains in the state.

I haven't been given a solid reason to doubt the truckers story to some level.
However, if it is a massive underground base there would be a lot of traffic in and out and the locals would know about it. Just like we know about cheyenne mt.

So if this truckers story is true then it must mean that this base houses "permanent" residents that could have came in by air at some point.

Perhaps this base is filled to the rim with other nations soldiers.

Perhaps there are similar bases in their country housing our soldiers.

Perhaps this base is an alien base.

Perhaps the trucker is an owner operator who grows his own as well.

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.


Actually I am a freight broker, and Ive had to move truckloads before for the government where I wasn't aloud to know what was on the truck at all, and the the owner of whatever material was on the truck would purchase extra insurance, sometimes between 1-2 million. Also the truck driver wasn't aloud out of the truck so see what was being loaded. Im a freight broker for a living.

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".

LOL!!!!

If you must know, when I was at Bolling AFB, I worked for the uber evil Booz, Allen, & Hamilton.

When I did work for the NSA, (I set up their ability to receive resumes online via their website and parse it out into their database via OCR), I was subbing for Accenture.

That's about all I'm going to say for now

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?"

(mumble mumble)

"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!"

Actually, in my experience of living and working in the DC area.....

What I found most often used as a bold faced lie was "I work for the U.S. Passport Agency". Which, well, in DC, has...oh...possibly 100 staff tops? It's my understanding this is commonly used by company folk straight off the farm......

Also, I played D&D for the longest time with a group that was significantly older than I was...they were mostly in their 30's and 40's...where I was in my late teens early 20's....I ended up working in SF doing more of my field of work, and reached out to some friends back in DC....apparently the guy who was our DM that worked for Xerox....

Well, when the CIA laid everyone off in the mid to late 90's, he was out of work....as he never actually worked for Xerox...and moved to Ethiopia....working for their government....

You simply NEVER know who you are actually dealing with in DC.

Sounds familiar to that place in Missouri that Jesse was talking about back when he had that conspiracy show.

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!



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...

We know you don't know what's in them trailers, That's why we run personal clearance on your accounts before tendering your trucks.

Then again, even if he did talk, who would believe a story like that???

Though I can imagine that there are underground bases - e.g. the Germans already had them in WWII - I find it hard to believe that such bases can be dug without anyone noticing.

Hollow mountains, seven story deep military complex.. I wonder how they do it. Even the modest tunnel between the continent and England (chunnel) took years to build. So, it's not something that is done overnight and it involves hundreds of people. Huge amounts of energy are needed, huge machines. And how did they get rid of the rubble?

Your trucker friend sounds like a prankster or amateur playwright to me. Somebody that likes a good story and enjoys telling one.

Just to clear things up, the trucker is not my friend. I've never met the guy. My friend met him, and the trucker told him the story.

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.


Most likely this place (or something similar):

wampumunderground.com...

Old coal mines that have been converted to storage. This particular facility has clients including Hollywood studios (LOTS of film and television shows stored here) and NASA (Hubble telescope mirror spent some time here). George Romero's Day Of The Dead was shot there. It's an amazing place and really cool.

You'll see lots of old mines that have been converted to other uses, both public and probably covert. Heck, the salt mines in Cleveland burrow MILES under Lake Erie and are large enough for heavy equipment.

As another poster pointed out, oil voids as well as large-scale underground mines are perfect locations for conversions to underground facilities. Some of these mines are quite old, quite sturdy, and an easy cover... very much a "hidden in plain sight" situation.

Everyone harps on the construction of these facilities as if they're new... but we've been hollowing out the earth for centuries. Easy stuff to repurpose the hollows and voids for other reasons with the general public easily none the wiser.

Even if you have a secret base, all of the usual government bureaucracy and rules apply: budgets, project codes, regulations, etc. The same reason they might hire civilian contractors to make the food in the cafeteria instead of GS. Same reason they use contractors for nearly everything. At least at one time there was a Starbucks inside the HQ of CIA in Virginia.

In fact, continued adherence and primacy of finances and regulations is a prime means to distinguish a real story from one made up from the mind of somebody influenced by conspiracy sites and science fiction.

It looks like those strange dirt squares were fromt he oil boom town days!

I don't know if anyone is still following this. I work in the field here in iraan, and I can clear a lot of things up.
1. Most of the buildings and houses look old because the town is landlocked, you can't build any more outside of the limit that is set, the land owners don't want iraan turning into a huge oil boomtown. Getting approval to build a house or place of business within limits is near impossible as well.

2. It's an oil town, everyone makes good money, that's why the cars are nice. Oil towns attract workers from all over the country and that explains the out of state plates.

3. When we pull oil out of the ground we also pull out tremendous amounts of H2S (hydrogen sulfide) gas. The only thig you can do with the gas is compress is and inject it back into the ground. So there are no empty voids in the field where you could hide a base without being exposed to the toxic gasses.

4. Our roads in the field have a strict no 18 wheeler policy unless accompanied by a company employees to guide them, our roads are steep and trucks can get stuck going up or race out of control going down. We have to guide them through the safer routes to ensure so accidents happen. (And unless it's an methanol or water truck tanker, they have no business in our field.) a commercial truck would be WAY out of place.

Having an underground base in our field would be near impossible to maintain safely, we have employees out here 24/7 and we still can't always keep up with gas leaks. Taking a big rig underground with all that highly flammable gas would only cause the biggest firework show you've ever seen.

Hope that cleared some stuff up, if anyone reads this.

a reply to: Slakoa

I've been in the oilfield my entire life, and I didn't even consider things like injection wells. That would be VERY problematic for an underground base. Especially knowing that companies don't always get permits to inject saltwater. In other words, it could channel anywhere making an underground base very difficult to build. Can't believe I didn't think of that.
