- On Saturday June 9th, 2007 Matthew Kazee called in to
the Alex Ansary show to discuss the Underground DARPA base in Blacksburg
Virginia. For years there have been rumors that hidden away in in Blacksburg
was a top secret underground DARPA base where research was done on many
things including robotics, chips for humans so they can control computers
with their mind, and chips for computers to control people's minds. The
rumors broke nationally from a woman by the name of Cathy O'Brien who wrote
a book in 1995 called "Trance-Formation of America", in which
she claimed that Bill Clinton was a partner with George Bush Sr. in a drug
smuggling operation that was exposed in the Iran Contra Affair, and later
proved by former D.E.A. Cele Castillo.
- It involved smuggling guns to the Contra's in exchange
for cocaine which was air lifted by the C.I.A. in C-130 airplanes to the
small town of Mena, Arkansas while Bill Clinton was Governor. O'Brien claimed
that they had a plan to bring in a "new world order" and after
people got tired of Republicans that Bill Clinton would be President. This
was decided in 1984.
- She also claims she was a victim of the M.K. Ultra Program
in Blacksburg Virginia in a underground DARPA base located in "Butt
Mountain". The strangest quote I read that Cathy O'Brien said was
"Virginia Tech is good for two things, engineering and mind control."
and that "most of the east coast M.K. Ultra Mind Control experiments
happened in this DARPA facility."
- This was written in 1995, the same year that a plane
crashed in to the White House on Sep. 11 in an attempt to kill Pres. Clinton.
There is only one problem with her claims-- Butt Mountain is not in Blacksburg.
Internet searches seem to point to the Kimballton mine that is located
inside Butt Mountain at Pearisburg, Virginia. So why did she say Blacksburg?
- The 7000ft deep mine is 30 minutes from Blacksburg. I
set out to see if this story had any legs. I was shocked at what I found.
After a few weeks of searching and talking to locals, I heard plenty of
rumors that sounded more like urban legends. I started hearing that it
might be located at the Arsenal in Radford Virginia.
- I talked to a vet who did 3 tours in Iraq, and he said
that the military didn't guard the Arsenal anymore, it was all security
guards. So I started looking elsewhere. I looked into the real Butt Mountain
in Giles and it seemed so logical. It just seemed to be a mine, from all
- I went to Google Earth to have a look at Butt Mountain
from satellite to see if there was any sign of a military base on the surface.
I found nothing. I looked around Mountain Lake every mountain along 460
into Blacksburg and again I found nothing.
- Thinking the O'Brien story was an urban legend, I decided
to try one last search. Even though I know that Butt Mountain is not even
in the same county as Blacksburg, I typed in to the Google Earth search
bar: "Butt Mountain Blacksburg Virginia"
- and was amazing to see the camera fly away from
the Kimballton mine in Pearisburg and drop down in the middle of Blacksburg.
- A marker just off of 460 came up saying "Butt
Mountain Blacksburg Virginia: the proposed site for DUSEL Deep Underground
Science Engineering Laboratory"
- Was it possible that there were two Butt Mountains? I
couldn't believe my eyes. I called a friend into the room who witnessed
the site in Blacksburg just 5-10 minutes from Virginia Tech. He was amazed
to see the marker for the DUSEL in Blacksburg because he knew that Butt
Mountain was miles away.
- The next day I broke the story on the Alex Ansary show
and explained how to find the Butt Mountain in Blacksburg that Cathy O'Brien
must have been talking about. It was easy - - all you had to do was go
to Google Earth and type in "Butt Mountain Blacksburg Virginia"
and anyone could see it with their own eyes. I also posted this information
on Alex Jones, Paul Watson and Steve Watson's myspace page. On Sunday as
I was diving to Plainfield, New Hampshire to interview Ed and Elaine Brown,
I called in to the Alex Jones show on KLBJ to discuss the Brown stand off
and to tell Alex about the google earth discovery so that millions could
can see it for themselves.
- Now Google Earth has officially censored the search phase
"Butt Mountain Blacksburg Virginia".
- That search now shows no results. I must have hit the
hot button. If there is nothing to hide then why censor it so quickly?
- None of my previous search phrases work anymore. Like
a reporter should, I started trying different searches. I found what I
was looking for and with "Kimballton Mine Blacksburg Virginia"
and "DUSEL Blacksburg" it takes you to exactly where I saw the
tag for Butt Mountain Blacksburg, only now it says this: DEEP UNDERGROUND
SCIENCE ENGINEERING LABORATORY.
- This raises some serious questions. Why did a search
for Butt Mountain Blacksburg Virginia go 30 minutes away from the real
Butt Mountain into Blacksburg?
- If this was nothing to hide why did Google Earth censor
the entry shortly after I talked about it on National Radio?
- Why does a search for Kimballton Mine go to Virginia
Tech instead of the real Kimballton Mine? Why is there no marker for the
DUSEL or Kimballton Mine at the real site in Google Earth. It was time
to get some answers to what is at the marker in Blacksburg that Google
- I drove out to the marker yesterday and didn't see much
so I went back to find satellite pictures of that area. Here is what I
saw when I did my search for "Butt Mountain Blacksburg Virginia".
- Why did they censor the search phrase of "Butt Mountain
- Let's zoom in and have a look Let's have a look at what
Google Earth now calls DUSEL Redistribution Laboratory
- Now here is the satellite images of what's in the area
Doesn't look like much, let's zoom in and have a closer look at the area.
- A baseball field and parking lot was the first thing
I noticed. A parking lot leads to a back section with buildings and cars.
Let's look closer.
- In this shot we see a playground on the bottom and a
fence that separates the back area with buildings and cars. Steps can be
seen in the top corner to a white building diagonally across from the playground.
- That is the playground with 2 slides beside the baseball
field. Let's see what's behind the fence and what Google Earth wont show
you. The corner of the slides can be seen in the bottom left corner.
- Behind the fence is what looks like another playground
only its a SWAT training facility. Where the local special forces train
to sweep buildings and shoot cars. There is a building in the top center
with no roof. Cars that can be seen are used in drills. A firing range
can be seen in the top left.
- This is the Shooting Range for Swat in Blacksburg Virginia
Here are more parked cars that are used for SWAT training. Diagonally across
from a baseball field and playground for children. Nice city planning.
So, let me get this straight. When I first looked on Google Earth for Cathy
O'Brien's description for the underground base in Butt Mountain in Blacksburg,
Virginia in 1995.
- Google instead takes me to this SWAT training facility
that is fenced in and less the 50 yards away from a playground instead
of where it should take me to the real Butt Mountain in Pearisburg, Virginia
to a 7000ft deep mine that since 2005 is the Virginia Tech DUSEL Deep Underground
Science Engineering Lab.
- Virginia Tech has plenty of pictures and all kinds of
DARPA funded engineering programs and is no secret.
- Pictures from within Butt Mountain in Pearisburg, Virginia.
So why doesn't Google have the markers in the right place? More importantly
why did Google censor the exact phrase "Butt Mountain Blacksburg Virginia"
shortly after I announced it to the independent media?It is because up
until a few days ago Google Earth referred to a building in Blacksburg
as the Butt Mountain: Deep Underground Science and Engineering Laboratory
" DUSEL " which is DARPA funded for Geology, Engineering and
Physics for Virginia Tech.
- Lets look at the original wide angle picture of the whole
layout. The original marker seemed to me to be in the center of the picture.
These photos were taken from blacksburg.gov and not Google Earth.
- At the top of the picture is the what Google now calls
a Physics Department. Google Earth for now at least still calls the building
the "proposed site for DUSEL" and the Kimballton Mine. That's
what I saw when I did my first search for Cathy O'Brien's quote "Butt
Mountain Blacksburg Virginia."
- This site is a 5-10 minute drive from campus depending
on traffic. Is this the place where Cathy O'Brien claimed in 1996 with
video testimony that she was a victim of mind control? On April 16 2007
Cathy reminded people that she warned them of what was happening with these
programs and how dangerous M.K. Ultra Programs can be and suddenly a story
that seemed to be an Urban Legend now has legs.
