Project Azorian: “the most complex, expensive, and secretive intelligence operations of the Cold War”

April 5, 2012

Project Azorian: just one of the many fasinating ways the CIA secretly, and illegally, spent billions of taxpayer dollars during the Cold War. What’s amazing is that, raising the K-129 from the bottom of the Pacific (3 miles deep!), was almost as much of an engineering achievement as landing a man on the moon… except this technological endeavor was  kept completely hidden from the public, the media, and, most importantly, the Soviets!  And how does one cover up “the most complex, expensive, and secretive intelligence operations of the Cold War”?  Why, just ask eccentric billionaire Howard Hughes to throw his name on it!  Hell, he’ll even let you park the thing next to the Spruce Goose down in Long Beach.  Amazingly, the Soviet ambassador in Washington warned his comrades back in Russia numerous times that the CIA was attempting to raise their sunken nuclear submarine… their response:  “Impossible!  The American’s wouldn’t even bother!”  Ha!  Read more about Project Azorian here!  And here’s the trailer for Azorian: The Raising of the K-129… a great documentary on the subject:

    I think he deserves it. More plpeoe should be getting jail time and fines for hacking. As far as the rest of it, I’d like to know what his issue was Perverted Justice initially. Is the guy a pedo or did he have some legitimate concern? It appears the site is still running, business as usual, which suggests his legality claims were bs. The “Holly” thing… that’s well played, in my opinion. He exploited the guy’s poor character. Got what he deserved. Family is probably better off without him.
