Cheyenne Mountain.

This is coolbert:

Hardly can this be seen as a good sign!!

From Freeper and originally at the Daily Mail:

"Why is the military moving back into base deep under the Rocky Mountains?"

"The Cheyenne Mountain Complex is one of the icons of the Cold War - a self-contained and sufficient town buried under the Rockies meant to be impervious to a Soviet nuclear barrage."

"It was home to the North American Aerospace Command (NORAD), scanning the skies for Russian missiles and the military command and control center of the United States in the event of World War Three."

. . . .

"It shut down nearly ten years ago as the threat from Russia seemed to subside, but this week the Pentagon announced that Cheyenne Mountain will once again be home to the most advanced tracking and communications equipment in the United States military."

"The shift to the Cheyenne Mountain base in Colorado is designed to safeguard the command's sensitive sensors and servers from a potential electromagnetic pulse (EMP) attack, military officers said."

Servers as in computer servers and I hope free-standing and not networked to the outside. Also we might hope not susceptible to attack by hackers and malware!
