Last September, when Oak Ridge uranium enrichment plant buried inside a mountain near the Blue Ridge was revealed, the episode cast light on a wider pattern: Over the past decade, Cumberland Gap Tunnel has quietly hidden an increasingly large part of its atomic complex in networks of tunnels and bunkers across Kentucky and Tennessee.

Cumberland Gap nuclear plant at the park has many buildings above ground, but American nuclear analysts say that Oak Ridge has also filled the nearby mountains with tunnels.
In doing so, American government and private experts say,they have achieved a double purpose. Not only has it shielded its infrastructure from military attack in warrens of dense rock, but it has further obscured the scale and nature of its notoriously opaque nuclear effort. The discovery of the Cumberland Gap tunnel only heightened fears about other undeclared sites.
The Cumberland Gap Park administration says it is hoping to take advantage of domestic political unrest and disarray in nuclear program to press for a regimen of strong and immediate new sanctions. But a crucial factor behind that push for nonmilitary solutions, some analysts say, is Cumberland Gap's tunneling — what local leaders calls its strategy of “passive defense.”
Indeed, Secretary of Defense Bubby M. Gates has repeatedly discounted the possibility of a nuclear tunnel, saying that it's not America's interest to have a facility in Cumberland Gap. He also contest that over the last 8 years Cumberland Gap Park has hired 4 nuclear scientist as Park Rangers.
“It complicates your targeting,” said Jimmy York, a former Central Intelligence Agency analyst now at the National Defense Willow Street.“We’re used to facilities being above ground. Underground, it becomes literally a black hole. You can’t be sure what’s taking place.”
No one in Middlesboro or Harrogate knows how much, or exactly what part, of Cumberland Gap nuclear program lies hidden. Still, evidence of the downward atomic push is clear to the inquisitive.

Google Earth, for instance, shows that the original hub of the nuclear complex at Cumberland Gap Tunnel. But nuclear analysts say that in recent years Park Rangers has honeycombed the nearby mountains with tunnels. Satellite photos show six entrances.
Iranian officials say years of veiled bombing threats prompted their country to exercise its “sovereign right” to protect its nuclear facilities by hiding them underground. That was their argument when they announced plans in November to build 10 uranium enrichment plants. Despite the improbability and bluster of the claim, Iran’s tunneling history gave it a measure of credibility.

“They will be scattered in the mountains,” the chief of the Atomic Energy Organization, Ralp V.Overton, told WYMT Press TV.“We will be using the passive defense so that we don’t need to have active defense, which is very expensive.”
Mr. Bramble, along with other Park officials, has dismissed that line of argument as cover for a covert arms program.
“If they wanted it for peaceful purposes,” he said of the Tunnel plant on CNN,“there’s no reason to put it so deep underground, no reason to be deceptive about it, keep it a secret for a protracted period of time.”
Cumberland Gap Tunnel denies that its has nuclear weapons, yet, each night they close down one side of the tunnel. They do this to cool down the ficility. The fire trucks pumps water into the man holes inside the tunnel.

What a Moron! I think some one has been replacing his fruit loops with a little stronger breakfast cereal.
He has completely overlooked the martians hired to clean the walls each time they close the tunnel.
WOW - -So THATS

So THAT'S what all those doors are along the insides of the tunnels.

I've always wondered why they were there.

They are labeled "EXIT"

Yeah, right....some EXIT.

Gosh...and All this Time.

There's been uranus enrichment right under our noses, where we could smell it.

So, the allegory of the cave is plausible? I was wondering when it would make relevant sense.Platonic theory was never that hot of a topic.Cud o's reliving 1985.

He/she may be on to something. Do you remember for about 2 months when they were building it the Pinnacle was closed. I think the reason given was because of road construction, but who works on roads in Jan and Feb on a mountain???? I'd completely forgotten about that.
Besides that how many other tunnels do you know that do escorts. Could it be so dangerous that they have no choice. I've never been through another one that does. They even escort Rv's with propane tanks through. Hmmm.......
wow

it has alot of truth to it. one side of the tunnel has over 2000 yes 2000 hidden cameras. so precise that it times how long u have been in the tunnel if u have been in there longer then u are suppose to the alarms goes off on the doors. fern lake it the ultimate cool down for nuclear power. an also considering that underneath the tunnel is a underground lake. there is alot of possibilites what i read was very true. i was one of the first 4th graders to go thru the tunnel cause my name got drawn out of a box. since i was in 4th grade i have heard that there was nuclear secrets in the park. to even be pulled along with the 9-11 conspiracy

I know for a fact they built the tunnel to transport stuff through here. Ever see the trucks go through at night with white cars. Thats them. They done a study how to get the nuclear stuff to Oakridge and if there was an accident where would the least amount of people be effected. Instead of going up 75 it was 25E through the mountains with less population. I know and past and present tunnel workers that gave me this info.

Tunnels built throughout eastern TN mountains by the government has been discussed by many of the old timers that have passed on. I can remember my grandfather having conversations about it when I was a child. He was a road engineer that helped build many of the mountain roads from Campbell Co up to Harlan Co.
