Over the past year and a half, there have been many articles stating that the U.S. Air Force will be closing the HAARP station in Gakona, Alaska. Here is one such article, from the Alaska Dispatch News:
Here is a quote from the article:
“Last summer the facility was temporarily shut down, but Ahtna Facility Services took over the operations and maintenance Sept. 30. But the Air Force says it can’t afford the $4 to $5 million a year its costs to run the site, the most powerful ionospheric heater in the world.”
Let’s review. The Air Force says it can’t afford the $4 to $5 million a year it costs to maintain the site. I find that very hard to believe. Since 9/11, the U.S. has been involved in ongoing war in the Middle East, which has cost at least $1 trillion dollars. They can afford perpetual war, but not a facility that costs $5 million a year. Yeah, right.
The only reason they would be closing down this facility is if they had something better in another location.
