Cracking Fort Knox

CRACKING FORT KNOX A LOOK INSIDE THE MOST SÉCURE VAULT IN THE WORLD WHAT IS FORT KNOX? 1473 The vault is said to hold 147.3 million ounces of gold. $Z70 Based on a price of $1,833/ ounce, the approximate value of those Fort Knox is the name commonly used to refer to the U.S. Bullion Depository located south of Louisville, Kentucky, next to a 109,000-acre U.S. Army base, BILLION gold bars is $270 billion. ANALYZING THE DEFENSES WORLD'S HARDEST SHELL TINTED WINDOWS > The walls of the Depository are 4-foot-thick granite, which many believe is lined with cement, steel, and fire-proof material. It is said that the Depository could withstand a direct hit from an atomic bomb. The windows are sealed from the inside and out. The glass is fire-proof, bullet- proof, and blackened so that no eyes can peek into the building and corridors. THE FRONT DOOR A SOLID FOUNDATION The front door weighs nearly 22 tons and is made of blast-proof material. No single person can enter the vault. Several members of the Depository staff must dial separate combinations, changed daily. The staff operates on a random time schedule. These combinations change daily, and the staff operates on a random time schedule. The foundation is composed of multiple layers of cement, with 10 feet of solid granite on top. The granite supports the weight of the vault structures and prevents underground infiltration. MULTIPLE BIG BROTHERS VIGILANT SENTINELS >At every corner of the Depository are multi-focus surveillance systems. They allow for every square inch of the Depository to be under surveillance at all times. There are four armed sentinel stations located on the ground level. At each station are security personnel and Thompson submachine guns. Since the 1970s, additional sentinel stations have been placed on the upper levels. THE ULTIMATE SAFE > The last known specifications for the vaults came from the Mosler Safe Co. The vaults were 27 inches thick, made of steel and concrete, and were impermeable to atomic bombs. In addition to its internal defenses, Fort Knox BARRIER WITHIN A BARRIER has a system of barriers and external defenses that make it virtually impenetrable. BARRIER ONE >A seemingly simple wire fence surrounds the outermost perimeter that touches the highway and roads. There are several motion sensors along this fence. BARRIER TWO The second barrier is a 10-foot electrical fence with additional concrete supports. IN PLAIN SIGHT The open area surrounding the building was added in the 1970s. This open area allows for increased surveillance. BARRIER THREE ORIGINAL BARRIER The final electric fence encloses a rectangular area. There are several secured doorways along this fence for patrolling guards. The original fence, built in 1937, is a black wrought-iron barrier forming an octagonal defense around the building. MILITARY BACKUP THE NATURAL PROTECTOR > The facility is guarded by the specially trained United States Mint Police. In addition, the Depository is within sight of Fort Knox, a large U.S. army post home to the 16th Cavalry Regiment, 19th Engineer Battalion, U.S. Army Armor School, and the 3rd Brigade Combat Team. In total, nearly 30,000 soldiers and 300 tanks, armed personnel carriers, attack helicopters and artillery are available for protection. > The Depository was placed in the northern part of Kentucky near Bullit, Hardin, and Meade counties. It is far enough inland to avoid a sea assault and is protected to the east by the Appalachian mountains. SPECULATED DEFENSES The defenses described above are only a small fraction of what is known to defend Fort Knox. The Depository's greatest defense is its secrecy. Here are a few of the speculated additional protections: VIRTUAL TRIP WIRES BIOMET RICS IDS FLOODING TUNNELS LAND MINES HELP FROM SPACE Original builders of the Depository have stated that many features were modeled on the Bank of France. Most corridors are said to instantly flood the moment an intruder is detected. Stereo camera Virtual trip wires can alert security personnel of an object nearly 15,000 feet away. They are intelligent enough to distinguish between a moving car and a loitering person. It is widely believed that between the second and third barricades there is a In addition to a terrestrial defense identification and fingerprint analysis would be standard methods of system, the vaults are said to be system of land mines, surface-to-air missiles, and motion-sensored protected from above by a satellite defense system. It can identify potential intruders and attack identification. The stereo camera is so precise, it can point out features altered automatic rifles. by plastic surgery. remotely. WHAT ARE THEY PROTECTING? Are all those defenses protecting the billions worth of gold, or more sinister secrets? During World War II, the British government and monarchy sent the Crown Jewels and the Magna Carta to the Depository for protection. During World War II, the Constitution and Declaration of Independence were also moved to Fort Knox for safekeeping. THE CROWN JEW ELS DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE COLS It is believed that in the 1950s, the vault stockpiled more than $23 million worth of morphine and opium (in case of a future war). Many conspiracy theorists believe that Fort Knox is actually a massive artillery, storing advanced biological weapons. GOLD BARS MORPHINE &OTHER DRUGS ANTHRAX POWDER WHERE IS THE GOLD? Many question why all this security is needed to guard what is at current gold prices $270 billion worth of gold bars. Could it be to protect something else or to protect is no gold in the vault? Did the federal government secretly sell off its gold reserves? Some prominent government officials believe so. In addition to assassinated leaders, conspiracy theorists believe that the Depository acts as the secure location for the aliens that crashed in Roswell. Another theory suggests that Fort Knox is a reliquary for the bodies of truth that there assassinated world leaders and criminals, including Jimmy Hoffa's body.

MULTIPLE BIG BROTHERS VIGILANT SENTINELS >At every corner of the Depository are multi-focus surveillance systems. They allow for every square inch of the Depository to be under surveillance at all times. There are four armed sentinel stations located on the ground level. At each station are security personnel and Thompson submachine guns. Since the 1970s, additional sentinel stations have been placed on the upper levels. THE ULTIMATE SAFE > The last known specifications for the vaults came from the Mosler Safe Co. The vaults were 27 inches thick, made of steel and concrete, and were impermeable to atomic bombs. In addition to its internal defenses, Fort Knox BARRIER WITHIN A BARRIER has a system of barriers and external defenses that make it virtually impenetrable. BARRIER ONE >A seemingly simple wire fence surrounds the outermost perimeter that touches the highway and roads. There are several motion sensors along this fence. BARRIER TWO The second barrier is a 10-foot electrical fence with additional concrete supports. IN PLAIN SIGHT The open area surrounding the building was added in the 1970s. This open area allows for increased surveillance. BARRIER THREE ORIGINAL BARRIER The final electric fence encloses a rectangular area. There are several secured doorways along this fence for patrolling guards. The original fence, built in 1937, is a black wrought-iron barrier forming an octagonal defense around the building. MILITARY BACKUP THE NATURAL PROTECTOR > The facility is guarded by the specially trained United States Mint Police. In addition, the Depository is within sight of Fort Knox, a large U.S. army post home to the 16th Cavalry Regiment, 19th Engineer Battalion, U.S. Army Armor School, and the 3rd Brigade Combat Team. In total, nearly 30,000 soldiers and 300 tanks, armed personnel carriers, attack helicopters and artillery are available for protection. > The Depository was placed in the northern part of Kentucky near Bullit, Hardin, and Meade counties. It is far enough inland to avoid a sea assault and is protected to the east by the Appalachian mountains. SPECULATED DEFENSES The defenses described above are only a small fraction of what is known to defend Fort Knox. The Depository's greatest defense is its secrecy. Here are a few of the speculated additional protections: VIRTUAL TRIP WIRES BIOMET RICS IDS FLOODING TUNNELS LAND MINES HELP FROM SPACE Original builders of the Depository have stated that many features were modeled on the Bank of France. Most corridors are said to instantly flood the moment an intruder is detected. Stereo camera Virtual trip wires can alert security personnel of an object nearly 15,000 feet away. They are intelligent enough to distinguish between a moving car and a loitering person. It is widely believed that between the second and third barricades there is a In addition to a terrestrial defense identification and fingerprint analysis would be standard methods of system, the vaults are said to be system of land mines, surface-to-air missiles, and motion-sensored protected from above by a satellite defense system. It can identify potential intruders and attack identification. The stereo camera is so precise, it can point out features altered automatic rifles. by plastic surgery. remotely. WHAT ARE THEY PROTECTING? Are all those defenses protecting the billions worth of gold, or more sinister secrets? During World War II, the British government and monarchy sent the Crown Jewels and the Magna Carta to the Depository for protection. During World War II, the Constitution and Declaration of Independence were also moved to Fort Knox for safekeeping. THE CROWN JEW ELS DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE COLS It is believed that in the 1950s, the vault stockpiled more than $23 million worth of morphine and opium (in case of a future war). Many conspiracy theorists believe that Fort Knox is actually a massive artillery, storing advanced biological weapons. GOLD BARS MORPHINE &OTHER DRUGS ANTHRAX POWDER WHERE IS THE GOLD? Many question why all this security is needed to guard what is at current gold prices $270 billion worth of gold bars. Could it be to protect something else or to protect is no gold in the vault? Did the federal government secretly sell off its gold reserves? Some prominent government officials believe so. In addition to assassinated leaders, conspiracy theorists believe that the Depository acts as the secure location for the aliens that crashed in Roswell. Another theory suggests that Fort Knox is a reliquary for the bodies of truth that there assassinated world leaders and criminals, including Jimmy Hoffa's body. JIMMY HOFFA'S BODY ROSWELL ALIENS THE CONSPIRACY MEN PRESIDENT PUTIN SEN. WALTER HUDDLESTON CONGRESSMAN RON PAUL On September 23, 1974, Senator Walter Huddleston toured the vault with 12 congressmen and 100 members of the press. The purpose of the tour was to dispel rumor that the vault was empty because the gold had been moved to Jerusalem. In September 2010, Con- gressman Ron Paul asked for an audit of the vault, saying, 'The Federal Reserve should prove all the gold is there." Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin alleged that IMF chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn was charged and jailed for sex crimes after he discovered that the gold held in the Depository was missing.
