Support: America Builds Large Underground Facility For Israel


December 6, 2012: A favorite source of intel are government documents related to construction projects. Take, for example, a recent project at an Israeli Air Force base outside Tel Aviv. Only U.S. firms are allowed to bid on this one and the two year construction effort will be supervised by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. Local workers can be employed but not Palestinians or anyone of doubtful loyalty. It’s all about building a five level underground structure. Called “Site 911” the underground space will have classrooms, an auditorium, shock-resistant doors, numerous security features, and the entire structure will be protected from nonionizing radiation (wireless electronic signals entering or leaving). This $100 million facility is being built for the IDF (Israeli Defense Forces).

The U.S. has been building military facilities for the IDF for many years, using money given to Israel as military aid each year. Some of the facilities are obvious, like bases for army brigades or underground shelters for warplanes. What exactly Site 911 is for was not revealed.

Thanksgiving is quickly approaching. Because of falling ad revenues and the owners of the site wanting you to have a good experience, this poor pet bird (Drake) may end up as the turkey for the publisher’s Thanksgiving meal.

What can you do to help save the bird? There are three possibilities:

  1. Make sure you spread the word about us. Two ways to do that are to like us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter.
  2. Subscribe to our daily newsletter. We’ll send the news to your email box, and you don’t have to come to the site unless you want to read columns or see photos.
  3. You can contribute to the health of StrategyPage. A contribution is not a donation that you can deduct at tax time, but a form of crowdfunding. We store none of your information when you contribute..

Drake appreciates any help you can give him.
