Skip to comments.Why Is The US Building A Secret $100 Million Underground Facility Outside Tel Aviv?
Posted on 11/29/2012 11:28:59 AM PST by Nachum
Leave it to legendary Walter Pincus from the Washington Post to flesh out a Request for Proposal construction project planned for Israel called Site 911.
The oddly named project will cost up to $100 million, take more than two years to complete, and can only be built by workers from specific countries with proper security clearances. Palestinians need not apply.
When complete the well-guarded compound will have five levels buried underground and six additional outbuildings on the above grounds, within the perimeter. At about 127,000 square feet, the first three floors will house classrooms, an auditorium, and a laboratory all wedged behind shock resistant doors with radiation protection and massive security.
Only one gate will allow workers entrance and exit during the project and that will be guarded by only Israelis.

Now it is about as much of a secret as Victoria’s.
Not much of a secret anymore.
The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
I guess another good question is why is Business Insider broadcasting to the world with a bullhorn the US building a secret $100 million underground facility outside Tel Aviv?
Has anybody told the ‘O’ ?
Dateline 1940: Why is the US Building a Secret Facility in Northern New Mexico and Stocking it with the Top Physicists in the World?
They’re the best friends we have there, sure, but why are WE building this....?
It’s ridiculous and maybe historically unprecedented for a BANKRUPT country to be looking after the security needs of another country more than it’s own.
It’s silly —we are enforcing foreign borders, while throwing openour own.
Imagine Israeli troops patrolling the border next to Tijuana —ridiculous.
And why does that make a person, “anti-Israel”...?
Izzies draw within a micrometer of ending the whole problem, and we reign them in. These has happened several different times.
Then we turn around and do stuff like THIS —it’s like we’re deliberately engineering an expensive, dramatic crisis which NEVER ends.
We are flying off of a financial cliff, and this SAME problem dominating the news since I was a very young boy is STILL smack dab where it always was.
Why is this STILL in our threadbare, tattered laps?
This reminds me of when geraldo rivera was attached to the US army in iraq and started drawing out their attack plan in the dirt on live tv. no secret now!
Obie needs a better bunker for when all h3|| breaks loose...
“Theyre the best friends we have there, sure, but why are WE building this....?”
Perhaps because it’s an American forward base to replace the ones soon to be lost to Islamists in relatively close countries and to provide command and control for forward American operations while surrounded by arguably the best (per capita) friendly airforce in the world and a very good and friendly military force?
The woman was given the two wings of a great eagle, so that she might fly to the place prepared for her in the desert, where she would be taken care of for a time, times and half a time, out of the serpent’s reach.
Why can’t these jerks keep a secret?
At the relatively small electrical sub-station and Admin. facility nestled in our suburban neighborhood they did “upgrades”.
First was a concrete and brick wall around the building and high-security fencing with a double-gated entrance with keycard. (Replaced the 4-foot tall chain link fence with an old gate that was never used.
Then they did a bunch of construction with trucks in and out for a year. I asked a neighbor that works for the trucking company what they were doing with so much truck traffic. The “basement” now has 4 or 5 stories underground!
I am guessing that it is a shelter of some sort for infrastructure type people and equipment. The major north-south gas line runs through the property as well. Either they know something we don’t - or they just took the millions of Homeland Security money that was handed out wiley-niley like the small towns that got million dollar SWAT tanks.
Palestinians need not apply.Boo-hoo. /sotto voce
Only one gate will allow workers entrance and exit during the project and that will be guarded by only Israelis. Oh boo-hoo friggin hoo. /sotto voce
Watch out Pardner! A man starts askin’ too many questions ‘round these parts, purty soon he’s supportin’ Constitutionalists ‘n gittin’ hisself banned by the mods.
Does anyone here really think that if the Business Insider knows, that foreign intelligence agencies didn’t already know? I’m sure Russia and China knew, and they passed it on to their Islamic buddies.
100 million dollars?
What does that buy for FatGedgov contracting, a double wide and Home Depots largest stainless grill?
That’s 800$/sq ft.
About the cost of a Boston high skool.
hey the antichrist needs a secure base of ops to attempt to run the world from in israel.
Sure just ask the crew of the USS Liberty. We should have turned their military bases into green glass then, instead, we bent over and wait until....
Sounds like it’s less secret than Victoria’s secrets.
If you mean the Federal Government I agree. All Business Insider did was report on a federal RFP (Request for Proposal) openly published by our government.
It’s kind of fun watching the USS Liberty nuts come out of the woodwork when Israel is discussed.
Pat, sorry your dad died in WWII (you know, when he fell out of the Aushwitz guardtower.)
Do you still support John Demjanjuk?
I appreciate your efforts on these threads, but the Jew-haters never go away. As I’ve said before, ignore them.
Meanwhile, over at
we find that the Jewish-controlled media is anti-Israel.
So, one the one hand, Jews don’t care about Israel so why should any REAL American care about Israel?
And on the the other hand here in this thread, we have those perfidious neocon Jews hijacking the American government in order to put Israel first!
That kind of cognitive dissonance likely leads to mental illness.
I once worked with a guy who fought in World War 2. He explained how secrecy was kept: General Patton (or whoever) would get the editors of the Washington Post, New York Times, AP, and others into a room and say something like: “We invade Normandy on Dec. 7, and any of you that print that will be arrested for Treason.” Never a problem back then...
For amusement (and to show consistentcy of evil), you should read the glowing articles about Hitler and Stalin from the NYT.
Hmmmmm....in case of contamination, use the red key
There’s those darn ‘wings of an eagle’ thing again.
They insist America isn’t in the Revelations....but if one read it we see we’re both evil and good.
I believe what is happening now...is all in God’s hands. Expect Great change.
Lettin’ it all hang out, just like Victoria does.
“For amusement (and to show consistentcy of evil), you should read the glowing articles about Hitler and Stalin from the NYT.”
I’ve read books on how the New York Times did everything but drag Americans to Stalin’s Russia, with the vast majority ending up in the Gulags and then dead within a decade. It was absolutely horrendous.
There’s a catch to US aid for Israel. Besides only being necessary because the US arms its Muslim neighbors to the teeth, most of the money must be spent to benefit US businesses.
Yep, this rather mundane facility is actually a kind of subsidy for US corporations. The story actually says it’s part of a U.S. Foreign Military Sales program as part of the ‘98 Wye agreement.
Did u watch that on TCM the other night? Great flick (and book).
$100 million doesn’t go very far these days- it takes $4 million just pay for one of the Lord of the Flies’ numerous Presidential vacations.
Your village called; they are missing you very much.
Because Henry Blodgett and BI are a bunch of liberal hacks.
The Army Corps of Engineers often handles odd procurements such as this in the ME for host countries. This is just an RFP, no doubt.
I like the tightness of the script in the book and the 1971 movie, which they kind of fouled up in the mini-series.
It could, theoretically at least, be remade, in an intelligent manner, instead of a CGI-fest, but that would require an intelligent and informed screenplay.
Oddly enough, they could say the facility was built to work with (real) extremely deadly pathogens, such as H5N1 influenza and Extremely resistant Tuberculosis and other resistant diseases; and then as now a paradox exists that biological weapons defense is almost identical to biological weapons offense.
(Some years ago, during the Reagan years, some smart guy at the Pentagon tried to sneak an appropriation through congress for an “aerosol lab”, which is a biological weapons development facility and a major treaty violation; and it was only spotted by a bored congressional aide who was flipping through the voluminous appropriations bill in the early hours of the morning. He called a buddy at the Pentagon to ask what it was, and caused a huge hubbub.)
In any event, not only could a remake show a modernized USAF and satellite tech, but decontamination tech, futurized scientific equipment, yet the same or similar personalities and interactions.
