In light of the 'insider' fingerprints left all over the 9/11 attacks,
a few recent stories made us sit up and take notice.
On Monday, the U.S. Capitol building (seat of the great American Democracy
a 'power out' that caused an evacuation for about an hour. Strangely enough,
a spokeswoman for Potomac Electric Power Co., said the electricity shut off
automatically after there was "a momentary drop in voltage due to customer
operations up the lines" away from the Capitol.
"The protective equipment sensed the significant change in voltage and
tripped," she said.
U.S. Capitol police however said a power spike that affected much of the metropolitan
area "knocked out power to the Capitol building and caused lights and cable
TV reception to flicker throughout the Capitol complex." In response, police
evacuated the building and investigated, along with architect of the Capitol
and fire officials.
Normally, this apparently innocuous event would not be interesting, except
for the fact that, on the weekend prior to the 9/11 attacks, power
to the WTC complex was also shut off, allowing, as is now expected, the
conspirators to enter the complex and 'prep' the buildings for the very obvious
demolition that occured just a few days later.
Added to that, we have the following very interesting story from "The Hill",
a newspaper "for and about the U.S. Congress":
officers are trained to patrol tunnels, police say
A select group of U.S. Capitol Police have undergone special training to
access the miles of utility tunnels underneath the Capitol complex, according
to a police spokeswoman.
The spokeswoman, however, would not provide further detail about how the
tunnels are protected because of national-security concerns.
“Specific information regarding our capabilities in this area cannot
be discussed, as this is a security-related matter,” said the spokeswoman,
Sgt. Kimberly Schneider.
The Washington, D.C., fire department, which serves the Capitol campus, also
says it is equipped to respond to any emergency involving the tunnels. Alan
Etter, a spokesman for the department, said firefighters possess the training
and equipment necessary should they need to enter the tunnel system.
“We have just completed training involving the large underground steam
tunnels that run throughout the city,” he said. "We have had limited
exposure to the tunnels under the Capitol; however, they are the same as the
[General Services Administration] tunnels."
The comments came in response to questions about what the U.S. Capitol Police
are doing to secure the tunnels.
Ten Architect of the Capitol employees who work in the Capitol Power Plant
tunnels asserted that there is no police presence in the underground tunnels
in a letter sent to four members of Congress nearly two weeks ago.
The tunnels provide steam to heat and cool the Capitol campus and run from
the Capitol Power Plant to the House and Senate office buildings, the Capitol
and other, surrounding buildings.
The letter contends that the police are not permitted to patrol the
tunnels because of their dangerous conditions, which include crumbling concrete
that could fall at any time and large amounts of carcinogenic asbestos.
“The United States Capitol Police has made the entire tunnel
system off limits to their staff because of the safety conditions as well
as the lack of communication because phones and radios do not work in the
tunnels,” the workers wrote.
When asked about the concerns raised in the letter, the police spokeswoman
said only that some members of the force have undergone special training and
that the training allows them to access the tunnel system. Rank-and-file
officers, however, are forbidden from entering utility tunnels because of
the hazardous conditions.
In the letter, the workers said that the police policy presents a security
“This should be a real concern to the Congress and Senate as
all buildings on the complex can be entered through the steam tunnels,”
they wrote. “Realize that it is on a regular basis [that] we
see people in the tunnels that we don’t know why they are down there.”
Citing documents received from the police, the letter adds: “The
Capitol police not only won’t go down there [but] they stated ‘We
won’t let our dogs down.’”
Safety precautions regarding the tunnels have been taken in the past for
special events, according to Eva Malecki, a spokeswoman for the Architect
of the Capitol (AoC), the office responsible for managing the buildings and
utilities on the Capitol campus. To prepare for inaugurations or State of
the Union speeches, manholes are sealed to prevent unauthorized entry.
“After Sept. 11, 2001, there was more emphasis on securing [the tunnels]
for security purposes,” Malecki said. “The AoC has started replacing
the old hatches with new ones that have emergency-release features that secure
the hatches from the outside, but allow egress from inside the tunnels in
D.C. firefighters already use self-contained breathing apparatuses,
or breathing masks, that protect them from asbestos and other particles.
Did you know that there are miles of tunnels underneath the Capitol complex?
Is it really believeable that these tunnels have been left in such a poor state
of repair that they could collapse at any minute?
Is it really believeable that the Washington Police Department cannot obtain
phones or walkie talkies that would work in these tunnels?
Is the claim that only select teams of officers can patrol these tunnels because
of the health threats really believeable when D.C. firefighters already have
self-contained breathing masks that protect them from asbestos and other particles?
After this news report, we tend to conclude that if there ever was a plan to
detonate a nuke in these tunnels and take out all of Congress and lots of DC
citizens and open the path to an overt political coup by way of the Continuity
of Government group , then these plans have now been shelved. What is perhaps
even more interesting is the other possible reasons why no one is allowed to
go down into these tunnels.
After all, it's not like the U.S. is a stranger to burrowing
into other people's business.
And just in case you are dismissing all of this as "secret government
conspiracy nonsense", then understand that to hold such a view you will
also have to accept the fact that the mainstream
press and government is in on this little plot along with us, which brings
you to the startling conclusion that it's all one big conspiracy to try and
make you, the ordinary person, think that conspiracies exist! How's that for
