Could A New Terror Threat Dwarf 9-11?
Former-Missile Engineer Reveals Grave Vulnerability
Topic Summary
It would start simultaneously at four locations on the San Andreas Fault plus one each onthe Puente Hills Thrust Fault (which runs under the skyscrapers of downtown LosAngeles) and the Hayward Fault in the San Francisco Bay area. Powerful explosionsdeep underground would send super-heated, ultra-high pressure steam coursing throughthe faults. Simultaneously flames would shoot from the ground at numerous locationsand Santa Anna winds would carry the conflagration across California, resulting in deathand disaster that would eclipse the 9-11-01 tragedy. But earthquakes are naturally occurring events and what about the flames shooting fromnewly opened fissuresis this Armageddon? Or could these be man-made ‘Acts of God’terrorist attacks on US soil? That’s what

Topic Overview
 On November 13, 2008, the United States Geological Survey (USGS) held the cautionaryShakeOut Scenario earthquake drill in Southern California. The Southern section of the San Andreas Fault is overdue for a major seismic event by a factor of more than 2.Mere nudges could break it and the other faults free. Set in the summer of 1961, The Unsung Patriots is the previously untold story of how theguidance system of our first ICBM, the Atlas E, could be confused (thus rendering it of no strategic value), and how World War III may have narrowly been averted. Of currentsignificance, however, the Epilogue details how those nudges to the earthquake faults can
be delivered and be made to appear to be ‘acts of God’. The key is the use of smalldiameter, tactical A-bombs (equivalent to the U.S.’s now retired 40 kiloton yield W-33)not as weapons, but as energy sources to create massive steam explosions deep withinflooded faults thus triggering the release of orders of magnitude greater natural forcesthat have been quietly accumulating for centuries. “Six deep wells will be sunken (8 inch inside diameter oil well casings) and then floodedfor up to a year. Two bombs will then be inserted in each. Upon simultaneous detonation,the upper and lower blast fronts will merge producing horizontal jets of ultra high-pressure steam and vaporized rock propagating in opposite directions. As the pressurewaves pass locked up areas they will reduce the force pressing the opposing faces of thefault together, thus allowing the lockups to rupture, and triggering a multi-epicenter seriesof earthquakes. Although, not of greater magnitude than naturally occurring quakes, theprolonged duration will multiply the destruction.” Mr. Geffs explains.“Unfortunately, there is an unrelated hazard also possessing the potential for greatcarnage. It is the surreptitious oxygenation and subsequent detonation of the abandoned,early oil fields underlying downtown Los Angeles, Beverly Hills, the Port of LosAngeles, and numerous other communities. When these shallow wells were abandoned,the oil-string casings were not pulled up; the well heads were simply cut off and capswelded on. Oxygenation of these fields will turn the hydrocarbon gases in the voids andthe substantial remaining oil into bombs.“To maximize carnage, these events will be initiated simultaneously during peak traffic atthe onset of a major Santa Ana wind event. Flames from the subterranean explosions willshoot from newly opened fissures. That which wasn’t obliterated will be incinerated inthe following hurricane force conflagration.As was the case following September 11th, fundamentalist Christians will proclaim thedevastation to be their long predicted wrath of an infuriated God, and the flames shootingfrom the ground will be their irrefutable proof. That this was an ‘act of war’ can never beproven to those who choose to believe otherwise. Being aware of these views, thosefanatical Islamic leaders who believe the USA to be ‘The Great Satan’ may convincethemselves that they can get away with such an attack.
believe is the crucialfactor.
 “What I am seeking is the unbiased, independent analysis of the threats delineated. Thiswill require the cooperative efforts of scientists from several disciplines and extensivecomputer simulations. If the hazards are validated, protective measures must beadopted.” Mr. Geffs concluded, “Unfortunately, there is a near universal flaw in the human psyche;we do not take threats seriously until
they have occurred. My quest is to ensure thatI’m never the in position to say, ‘I told you so.’ Meanwhile,
we remain a nation of sitting ducks.
