<div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Quote:</div><div class="ubbcode-body">President Obama, who has been traveling the country urging Congress to pass his jobs bill so Americans can be put to work on infrastructure projects, need only look out a window in the West Wing to see one such project. <span style='font-size: 14pt'>Under way on his front lawn for the last 17 months, it is highly visible and yet mysterious.</span> ...

For the first time in recent memory, the ground and pipes beneath the Oval Office are exposed, and each day, workers lower massive concrete blocks several stories underground. Cranes, trucks and construction workers file in and out of the hole, usually through a passageway between the White House and the Old Executive Office Building.

The cavernous hole has inspired much speculation. Is it an Olympic-size swimming pool for the fitness-conscious first couple? <span style='font-size: 14pt'>A more spacious bunker? A place, perhaps, to hide the deficit?</span> ...

<span style='font-size: 11pt'>The final phase of construction will take place near the Presidential Emergency Operations Center, made famous as the spot where Vice President Dick Cheney took shelter in the hours after the 9/11 attacks while his boss remained on Air Force One</span>, awaiting the all-clear to return to Washington.

<span style='font-size: 11pt'>Although White House officials say they don’t know too much about the construction, some have said they think it is, as one put it, “security related.”</span>

Another White House official said that the construction would eventually link whatever is being built underground with the operations center, which was originally built during the administration of Franklin D. Roosevelt — <span style='font-size: 11pt'>the idea being a general expansion of an emergency base of operations.

“It is security-related construction,”</span> said the official, who was not authorized to speak publicly about the project. <span style='font-size: 14pt'>“Even we don’t know exactly what.”</span> ...

Pebble Beach, the unofficial name for the raised platform where television news correspondents do stand-up shots from the White House lawn, offers a clear view of the hole. Camera crews have watched the construction process and regard it with a wink and a nod.

“It’s all about air-conditioning, right?” said one when asked what he knew about the work being done.

“Yeah, that’s right,” replied another, with a smirk. “Air-conditioning.” </div></div>

I see no such claim from them, reported as a fact. Where do you find that in their report?

Is it a secret that there is a Presidential Emergency Operations Center (PEOC) in the lower basement floors below the ground level White House?

I think that while details may be classified, it is generally well known that the PEOC exists, what it's for, and that the president is likely to be there during emergencies.

Knowledge of some kind of annex to which it's connected would add additional risk or threat to the WH from the nation's enemies, how, exactly, in your view?

Do you think they'd retarget the atomic bomb or the bunker buster bomb over 50 yards or so to better center the aim over this area? If so, wouldn't that help protect the president if he were in the hardened structure PEOC directly below the WH?

The story being pushed by the RW media is that 'elitist' uppity Obama is building himself a 'secret' bunker, despite the fact that the whole world knows about it!

Go figure.

How does this differ from the FOX reporting on the same issue?

Screw your doublethink cap down hard.

Wait there snoop ... in the other thread you are denying that anyone knew about it?

Which story are you asking me to believe?

Fox is harping on the money as 'not funny,' repeatedly stating the alleged sum (which they exaggerate), and then suggesting about 15% of that large amount of money is going into West Wing 'improvements.'

That is to say, being wasted on Obama's foolish whims and personal grandiosity, although the money was appropriated soon after 9/11/2001 with regard to enhanced threat problems.
