The Montauk Project : The Philadelphia Experiment Legacy Continues Bill Knell

It came as no surprise that after I introduced some of the survivors of the Philadelphia Experiment and the Montauk Project to the world through my DVD, The Truth About The Philadelphia Experiment, authorities in charge of the Montauk Base clamped down on uninvited visitors. The clamp got even tighter as I added the subject of what had allegedly happened there to my seminar. That seminar brought the story of the Philadelphia Experiment and Montauk Project to tens of thousands of people throughout North America via my live seminars, and to thousands more on video.

The clamp down on already restricted public access to the property was justified by local authorities who claimed that visiting the old base was dangerous. They expressed concern that people might be injured trying to gain access to abandoned buildings or lost in unmapped underground areas. So why leave what they claim is an abandoned base intact in the first place? Why not go in with bulldozers, explosives and clear the entire area?

Since New York State claims they now own the property, why not clear it and sell the much-desired beachfront land for a zillion dollars a square foot to solve all the state budget problems? To put the value of the property into perspective, the sale of all that beachfront land could probably pay for most of the Homeland Security budget for the entire eastern part of the United States for the next ten years! But it remains unsold, just as many of the buildings and underground areas remain intact. Why?

Camp Hero is actual designation of what we call the Montauk Base that lies at the far eastern end of Long Island. Although itís just south of the historic Montauk Lighthouse, most people have no idea this facility even exists. Records are sketchy and mostly unavailable on the property, but itís been owned by or under U.S. Government influence for almost two hundred years. Once considered strategically important, the base was supposedly closed and abandoned in 1966. Once used as an observation area, fort, shore battery installation and radar facility, the continued use of the property by the federal government was considered unnecessary after another facility took over radar monitoring responsibilities needed for NORAD. At that point it is claimed that the property was turned over to New York State, which has since developed it into park land.

The federal government still uses at least a portion of the property in the form of a small patch of antennas on a tiny hill that is easily visible near the old main entrance to the base. Those antennas are used as part of the U.S. Coast Guard communication system and have been for years. Despite the fact that they could have easily been moved elsewhere to a higher and better location at any time, allowing the antennas to remain there gives the federal government a measure of control over the property.

I had visited the base on several occasions well before it was developed into a park and while the underground areas were still open. I, spent a considerable amount of time there and that was no easy task. Men dressed as fisherman regularly walked the perimeter to be sure that no one strolling along the beach or near the lighthouse wandered on to the property. Although they never seemed to have any fishing gear or poles, these tall and tough fisherman warned off potential visitors to the base by reminding them the property was closed to the general public.

Each time I visited the base it was on a major holiday. I knew there would be few, if any, actual security people on the periphery of the facility. Once inside, I would just have to be extremely careful. On a related note, a four wheel drive vehicle frantically drove around the base roads after I noticed a surveillance camera staring me in the face at one of the buildings during my first visit. Fortunately, I evaded capture.

I visited the Montauk base seeking to verify two incredible stories. According to witnesses interviewed on my Philadelphia Experiment video (which also covers the Montauk Project thoroughly), the base was used as a continuation for government experiments involving time travel and mind control technology first discovered during the initial endeavor in the 1940s. The huge radar tower was said to be the instrument that directed waves of mind altering signals out for miles and into towns that surround the base.

Despite the fact that the radar dish wasnít supposed to have been used since the 1960s, I found it in remarkably good condition. The electricity in the tall radar building was on and the restroom was useable. Although the large motors that moved the dish had been disconnected from it and removed, the dish was allowed to sway in the wind to keep it from collapsing. The technology being used for the alleged mind control signal may have been omni-directional, not requiring the specific movement of the huge dish to a certain bearing. Large numbers of modern looking wires ran from tubes coming from underground into the building and vanished inside its walls.

Although some of the old base houses lie in ruin, many of the offices looked as though they had recently been used. A few had working phones! Although many of the buildings looked to be in a sad state of maintenance from the outside, many were in perfect condition inside. Some had lights on and seem to have been altered for other uses. The inside of the chapel contained a modern gymnasium. An old PX seemed to have become some sort of a kitchen with hundreds of metal food trays neatly stacked on racks. Other buildings had new fences erected around them and very modern security cameras almost hidden from view were placed in trees, on rooftops and along walkways. I went during a chilly time of year and heat flowed through an external system that ran to every building. But the biggest surprise of all waited for me in the underground area.

Despite the fact that the base was never occupied by more then sixty or seventy people during any of itís incarnations, a trip into the underground area revealed hundreds of wooden racks (bunk beds) inside a large maze of what seemed like fenced in and locked areas. It looked like a base brig (prison), but why so many sleeping areas? The answer might just lie in what the Montauk survivors had claimed. They say that hundreds of people were brought there, against their will, to be part of whatever went on underground. The proof of this seems to be found in the hundreds of sleeping areas and converted PX building where meals for that many people could be prepared and delivered to the underground as needed.

Another story involving the base was that a large beast had appeared as a result of underground experiments, gotten loose and caused extensive damage above ground. After that, some of the experiments were shut down and the infamous time travel chair removed. I did find some buildings which looked as though they had been attacked and partially destroyed by something big and powerful. Huge holes made it look as if something had punched its way out of the underground tunnels. The remaining tunnels and underground areas were sealed and cemented off where the chair may have been.

I felt as though I was walking through a ghost town where the residents had simply vanished or moved underground, but could return at any time to use buildings ready for them. The Montauk survivors believed that the project, in one form or another, was still going on there. While walking on certain parts of the base, I felt a steady thumping under my feet. Given the fact that I had sneakers on and saw no evidence of above ground construction or a source for the strange vibration, this was more then a little disconcerting! Stooping down to feel the ground with my hands, the thumping was more pronounced. I believe that they might have been building new or repairing old underground areas.

I visited the Montauk Base with neutral thoughts, neither believing or disbelieving the incredible claims made about the facility by those who say they survived horrifying ordeals there. My concern was finding evidence to support or refute the claims being made. What I found was a base that seemed abandoned, but also very active. The physical condition of what I examined more then supported at least the background fabric of the stories I was told.

If you go to the base today, all the old accesses to the underground areas have been tightly sealed. However, there is still access to caves along the beach area once used by bootleggers during prohibition to smuggle in illegal booze from offshore boats. Many of these caves connect to tunnels built by Nicola Tesla for experiments with electricity many years ago. These tunnels are separate and apart from the others used for access to the shore batteries and old fort. It would be easy to use these resources to construct a new and even larger underground area for continued experimentation. Why there? Maybe itís some sort of a vortex? I donít know and cannot say. What I do know and now believe is that at least part of the truth about what the U.S. Government knows or has developed as a result of the Philadelphia Experiment and captured alien hardware is likely buried under what is now New York State Park land.
