He opens with some common government underground installations. He shows us what's on the record and gives us glimpses of CIA, FEMA, US Military, NSA and many other installations that exist, underground and can be proven so by the available data. He then goes onto discuss the two sides of the US government, the everday apparent one we read about in Newspapers and see on TV and the completely invisible one that works with classified data, technology and black budgets. He quotes an excerpt from Blank Check: The Pentagon's Black Budget by Tim Weiner as follows:
There are two governments in the United States today. One is visible. The other is invisible.
The first is the government that citizens read about in their newspapers and children study about in their civics books. The second is the interlocking, hidden machinery that carries out the policies of the United States in the Cold War.
He then goes on:
These words were written by David Wise and Thomas Ross in the 1960s, at the height of the Cold War. More than 30 years have passed, the Cold War is now over (at any rate that is what the newspapers tell us), but the invisible government remains. And the secret underground bases fall within its clandestine domain. Out of sight, out of mind.Read more ›
So, not much fun to read...but good for reference.
While I was looking for a book that actually explained just what in the hell is going on down below, I wasn't disappointed with the information I had learned after reading.
If you were writing a book or article about an secret underground base, this book would definitely come in handy.
