Subject: [CPEO-MEF] Dugway Proving Ground (UT) expansion
Dugway expansion a mystery

Are plans due to tainted soil ? or maybe UFOs?

Does the Army want to expand its Dugway Proving Ground in Utah so it can
forcibly obtain nearby land it contaminated with chemical weapons but
has refused to clean?

Or does it want to keep UFO-hunting groups farther away from the
secretive base because they now closely watch it, suspecting that it
stores and works on alien spacecraft as a "new Area 51"? 

Pick either theory or one of your own because the Army isn't going to
say. Five months after being asked, the Army has officially refused to
release documents explaining why and where exactly it might expand Dugway.

In a letter denying a Freedom of Information Act request filed in
October by the Deseret Morning News, Brig. Gen. James R. Myles,
commander of the U.S. Army Test and Evaluation Command, states that the
Army had identified "a number of documents ... regarding proposals to
enlarge the boundaries of Dugway Proving Ground," confirming it is
indeed looking at expanding the base that is already larger than Rhode Island.
