Tunnel for Obama near Mani Bhavan
DNA ^ | 11/4/2010 | Pandurang Mhaske

Posted on 11/04/2010 8:47:25 PM PDT by omega4179

It could give a sense of superior American organisation, or be an indicator of a deep-set persecution complex. It could also be a manifestation of Uncle Sam’s penchant for a show of strength.

The matter pertains to US president Barack Obama’s planned visit to Mani Bhavan —the Gandhi museum — on November 6, soon after he reaches Mumbai. On Monday, US secret agents visited the museum to plan Obama’s security detail.

They were accompanied by officers of Mumbai Police and civic officials of the D ward (where Mani Bhavan is located). While inspecting the route and the buildings lining up the route to the museum, the Americans detected a skyscraper near Peddar road and also found the area to be highly populated.

Since it is difficult to monitor such a congested area, they came up with a quick solution which left the Indians accompanying them amazed: A bomb-proof over-ground tunnel — to be installed by US military engineers in just an hour.

The tunnel would be a kilometre long and measure 12ft by 12ft — enough to let Obama’s cavalcade pass through. The tunnel would be centrally air-conditioned, fitted with close-circuit television cameras, and will be heavily guarded at every point, including, of course, its entry and exit.

The message to India surely is: you have a lot of crazy Amish and 3rd world security measures. Stay well away from our glorious leader!

The message to India is: “We don’t trust you or your people.” How utterly elitist and insulting. I am ashamed that this ... person (can’t even call him a man anymore) is representing our Country. Sorry India, we’ll be correcting this mistake ASAFP.

12'x12'x1 kilometer, bomb-proof, in one of the most congested areas on the planet, in one hour? An they just happen to have this equipment laying around? And the OK to disable a busy city with it, in a real country, for obama's pleasure? Is this even real, or is it a crazy story meant to confound gullible folk like me? I've never heard of such a thing. Honest.

Anderson Cooper at the start of his show tonight said all this talk about 3,000 people, 34 war ships, 200 million dollars a day, all of it was nothing but a big lie.

Has anybody had any verification of any of these statistics?

This technology has been around for the past couple of years and has been widely used by the President and the leaders of both houses of Congress. It is referred to as a "bubble."

We can build a mile long security tunnel in one hour, but we can’t seem to build a security fence along our border, no matter how much time we have.

Sadly, the Secret Service has had to work really hard to protect this president. In a world where we’re told not to name our enemies, where up is down and PC think is de rigeur, anyone who isn’t a little paranoid is probably nuts.

Well then... that would mean the reports contain the telltale signature/mark of Obama.

Chaos and confusion follow Obama wherever he goes.

I should point out I am NOT including the military and secret service in that 3000 (if they are counted in that 3000) as clowns. They are doing their job, and I am sure the first thing they said about this trip is DON’T DO IT!

This is the only 'verification' that I could find on the web in 5 minutes. All other articles are one way or an other based on this.

"The huge amount of around $200 million would be spent on security, stay and other aspects of the Presidential visit," a top official of the Maharashtra Government privy to the arrangements for the high-profile visit said.

(Read more at: http://www.ndtv.com/article/india/us-to-spend-200-mn-a-day-on-obama-s-mumbai-visit-64106?cp&cp)

If a 'top official' says so, then it must be true. If we cannot believe anonymous top officials, then who can we believe?

Finally, do a search of Free Republic. There have been a lot of articles on the trip and costs. A lot of people are doing a lot of lying if these numbers aren't true.

*****************************************************
Did Mr.Anderson offer an accurate figure, actual numbers?

Why can’t the WH just give some actual numbers then? I get it, those numbers are locked up with his school records and bc.

We are to just trust them— when the easiest way to shut everyone up—is just show the stuff, give accurate costs.

I’m about tired of these carnies running a game on us.

The tunnel would be centrally air-conditioned, fitted with close-circuit television screens for basketball game viewing, pearl and gold shag carpet, a fully stocked wet bar staffed by 47 butlers and cocktail waitresses serving snacks and light meals upon request. A masseuse and Chinese foot pressure point specialist will also be on hand to give back rubs to relieve the pressure of being POTUS.

‘Bubble’ typically refers to a detailed police cordon around some big shot, with cops, checkpoints, snipers on buildings, spooks circulating in the crowd. This structure is called a ‘tunnel’ by any source I could search. A piece of capital goods rather than an organized task. If it’s true, I’ll verify it tomorrow.

This reminds me of how the superior technology of the Marian War Machines was completely overcome by terrestrial micro-organisms, the smallest of God's creatures.

Obama does not know how to interact with normal humans without insulting them. It is his nature, like that of a fire ant. The boy's a mess and he cain't he'p it. Gib him his food stamp card and send him back to chicago. F*ing post-turtle president.

IIRC, they vetted duhwon's BC which isn't a BC, but a COLB. (As in certification, not Certificate.)

I've never heard of such a thing. Honest.

There are no solid walls and it is invisible except for the hi-tech support vans. It is an electronic shield ("Shields up"), using quantum effects at a macro scale. The only thing unusual you see are the antenna arrays on the vans. There is also a tractor beam that can be directed at a particular person or vehicle trying to enter the security perimeter. There is much more exotic stuff that hasn't been rolled out yet, such as the quantum teleportation function (instant transport out of the danger area).

If one of those has been used before you can surely find a pic of one from a news service. How could anyone miss it?
