This article was shared with me in an email by a regular reader here and a frequent contributor of articles in emails, Ms. P.H., and it’s so intriguing I simply have to share it and comment a bit about it in my usual high-octane-speculation sort of way.
The gist of the article, as will be apparent from the title, is that Raytheon, a major American defense contractor, and most probably a favorite corporate son of the Diabolically Apocalyptic Research Projects Agency (DARPA), will be contracted to look for tunnels…
… in Egypt!:
Now, here’s the ostensible story, direct from the article itself:
“Aerospace and defense major Raytheon Company ( RTN ) has been awarded a $9.9 million contract by Pentagon to continue with research and development work on Border Tunnel Activity Detection Systems in Egypt. The contract is provided under an Egyptian Foreign Military Sales Letter of Agreement with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.
“On detection, the Egyptian authorities will plug these tunnels which were abused by terrorists to smuggle arms across the border into Gaza for use against Israel. According to rough estimates, nearly 2,000 tunnels still exist in the Egypt and Gaza border.”
