The Ft. Knox episode proves to me that these guys are drama queens and anything they have 'decoded' before is utterly fiction.
First like usual they talk to 'so-called' experts, as usual. But as usual these experts are not only unqualified but, they are crackpots. They ask a waitress for crying out loud, please.
When they approached Ft. Knox on the Highway, they start pointing out an airfield and 'sniper towers'. They comment on not being able to see any soldiers but, if they got close to the gates, troops would pop up, gunships and vehicles would be on them immediatley.
Fact - there is a significan US Army presence at Ft. Knox. It is after all an Active Duty US Army Post with several tenant commands. Is that force there to protect the Gold Depository though? Of course the colocation of the Depository on a US Army Fort is intended to provide security.
First we start with the Armor. Ft. Know used to, key phrase used to up until last year, house 2 significant Armor units. 1 a Cavalry Regiment and 1 a Armored Brigade. Both elements were soley training commands, training both Cavalry and Armor tankers, as well as USMC Tankers. Its important to note that the Armor Training element were located clear on the other side of the Reservation in a huge manuever area and range, miles away with no access at all to the Depository. The Armor Training has since moved to Ft. Benning. The 1st ID also has a Brigade Combat Team as Ft. Knox, could this be the security force? Not at all. As the entire Brigade is currently deployed to Afghanistan until may of 2012.
This being the 3 BCT/1ID, it also has its own organic Rotary Wing Air Combat Element, IE the Airstrip with Apaches, Kiowas and Blackhawks. Their presence there is normal and they come and go with the 3BCT/1ID.
Sniper Towers? Observation Towers are common at many US Military Installations. They usually don't contain Snipers. Snipers being of that Type A personality, dont tent to like being relagated to guarding anything. These towers are likely manned infreuently by MPs or Federal LE or with CCTV elements. If you were to approach the Base Perimeter, you will likely get the same response as you would approaching any other US Military base. It wouldnt include helicopters, tanks or snipers.
The female participant while on the highway starts using her iPhone to to take some video of the depository. The other guys start freaking out, that they are going to be seen. Yeah he is a drama queen.
The icing on the cake for me, at which point I stopped watching was them spotting an SUV coming up behind them. The SUV had tinted windows, a CB antenna and a custom plate with the name Falcon. Yeah they think they are being followed. What a bunch of loons. Obviously theyve never been to Kentucky or else they would know every redneck and their mother has a CB and Custom plate.
This show is *beep*
