There are bunkers to house thousands of people in case of a nuclear war … but you’re not included

At the dawn of the nuclear age, the United States government began developing plans that would ensure its survival should the unthinkable happen and a nuclear war with the Soviet Union became a reality.

At first, the government’s planning included finding ways to save as much of the population as possible. But, according to a new book by Garrett Graff, “Raven Rock: The U.S. Government’s Secret Plan to Save Itself While the Rest of Us Die,” over the years the government’s strategy evolved into a plan that was designed to save only as many governing elites as possible, leaving the rest of the population to fend for itself.

In a recent interview with Inside Edition to discuss his new book (which this writer is reading, by the way), Graff detailed his findings about a series of secret bunkers and other getaways buried into mountains in rural parts of the country that are part of Washington’s COG — “continuity of government” — planning, and one of those facilities is called Raven Rock.

Raven Rock, also known as Site R, is located about an hour outside of Washington, D.C., near Blue Ridge Summit in Pennsylvania. There, you’ll find a massive, Pentagon-like underground emergency operations center; it’s ‘sister’ facilities are the Mount Weather Emergency Operations Center in Virginia and the Cheyenne Mountain Complex in Colorado. Together these facilities form the government’s core COG strategy.

“The government built more than a hundred of these bunkers and relocation facilities around the country,” Graff told Inside Edition, adding that there is no room for families because “the plan is to get a small number of government officials into the bunkers.”

Meanwhile, the fate of the rest of us is grim, to say the least. As noted by the UK’ Daily Mail, a late 1950s government report described how cities should attempt to manage civil defense operations after a nuclear attack:

It said that the area should be divided into ‘mortuary zones’ with ‘collection teams’ in charge of identifying bodies.

Post Office mail trucks would ferry the wounded to one of 900 improvised hospitals set up near attack sites in places like federal prisons.

So devastating would such an attack be, it lead President Dwight Eisenhower, who had witnessed the massive conventional destruction of Europe and Japan as Supreme Allied Commander during World War II, to observe, “The destruction might be such that we might ultimately have to go back to bows and arrows.”
