The White House Big Dig is finally wrapping up, but the Big Reveal is proving to be a pretty big letdown.

After nearly two years and $86 million worth of noisy and disruptive construction, the West Wing has emerged from its visual seclusion remarkably unchanged. And deep underground, whatever has been built there remains shrouded in mystery.

The General Services Administration, which oversaw the work, said it was to replace aging water and steam lines, sewers, storm sewers and electrical wiring conduits. Heating, air conditioning and fire control equipment also are being updated, officials said.

I agree. It only took three years to dig, build and equip the 112K sq ft bunker that goes over 700f ft under the Greenbrier resort in West Virginia. And that was accomplished completely in secret and with late 50s technology and mountain winters.



She is telling the truth. I lived in White Sulphur and personally know several people that work at the Greenbrier. Absolutely no one in a town of about 3,000 (At the time.) had any idea this bunker was there.

What did they accomplish in two years with modern technology? They only replaced some pipes?

Sure, I believe it...
