In our book UNDERGROUND BASES: Subterranean Military Facilities and the Cities Beneath Our Feet, we remind readers it has been widely reported by mainstream media that there’s a vast tunnel system below Washington D.C. It’s our understanding that at any given time there are hundreds of security personnel patrolling the tunnels, on foot or with the aid of motorized vehicles – and it’s considered very likely many of the capital’s tunnels lead to and from the White House.
The White House…connected by tunnels?
An excerpt from Underground Bases follows:
The often-told stories of Marilyn Monroe being sneaked in and out of the White House via underground tunnels to meet with JFK would seem to confirm this. Such tales reveal the capital’s extensive tunnel system enabled Marilyn to be the President’s mistress without much scandal – for a period, at least.
JFK and Marilyn.
In an article dated April 4, 2011, the UK’s Daily Mail asks if “a secret lair was being built under the White House”.
The Daily Mail article continues: “The West Wing of the White House is all-but disappearing behind an $86 million building project that is going to last for years. And a mysterious tunnel is being built, fuelling speculation that a secret underground lair is what’s really under construction.
“In recent weeks, an expanding and sometimes ear-splitting zone of excavation has enveloped the mansion’s famous office wing…
“The White House already has a number of tunnels —the exact number is, of course, classified.
“The most well known is the underground corridor that leads to the President’s Emergency Operations Center (PEOC), a supposedly nuclear-proof bunker located six stories under the East Wing. It was to this bunker and its adjacent Executive Briefing Room that Dick Cheney and Condoleezza Rice, among others, directed Government operations on September 11, 2001.
“While Hollywood and many conspiracy theorists suggest a rabbit warren of subterranean passageways— including mythical tunnels to Capitol Hill and even Camp David —there is at least one hidden passageway that has been revealed in the famous residence.”
The Daily Mail confirms “a 50-yard tunnel leads from a concealed doorway in the Oval Office to the basement of the First Family’s residence” in the East Wing.
“The clandestine passage was built during Ronald Reagan’s presidency as a way to guard the President in a terrorist attack…Pressing a panel on a wall adjacent to the President’s rest room next to the Oval Office causes a secret door to slide open, leading to a staircase down to the passageway.”
The Daily Mail also asserts there is talk of a tunnel linking the White House to Blair House across Pennsylvania Avenue.
Before It’s News columnist Monica Davis, in an article dated February 20, 2013, says “the massive 4 year White House construction project has finally been completed.” She’s referring to the same “secret lair” the Daily Mail reported on earlier.
Excerpts from Ms Davis’ article follow:
“The deep, underground project continues to be shrouded in secrecy and has reportedly been planned for 40 years…
“Given that the president has so many fortified hidey holes, why was this one built? What does its construction really mean for the security of the most powerful man in the world?
“…And deep underground, whatever has been built there remains shrouded in mystery.”
