I'd post the photo here, but they're being very protective of their exclusive.

Most interesting!

Nearly 3.5 miles down.... Lets be real here. If some natural disaster was so violent to sink an island over 16,000 feet into the ocean, Do you really think that there would be anything close to this left? If it was an earthquake of that magnatude or a volcano that caused this, there would be nothing left to see at this depth.

I am calling BS.

Maybe Atlantis was really a floating magic carpet that just lost it's buoyancy.

Not sure if Google Earth found Atlantis, but they found one of our secret bases in Pakistan.

http://www.foxnews.com/politics/elec...base-pakistan/



Official Confirms U.S. Using Pakistan Base to Launch Attacks


The confirmation contradicts a stream of previous denials from officials and comes after the Times of London published a Google Earth image apparently showing three U.S. drones at the Shamsi airbase in Pakistan's southwestern province of Baluchistan as early as 2006.

The United States has been using a base in Pakistan to station unmanned Predator drones that have been used to attack terrorist targets inside the country's tribal areas, a senior U.S. official told FOX News Thursday.

The confirmation contradicts a stream of previous denials from officials and comes after the Times of London published a Google Earth image apparently showing three U.S. drones at the Shamsi airbase in Pakistan's southwestern province of Baluchistan as early as 2006.

The image -- which is no longer on the site but was obtained by The News, Pakistan's English language daily newspaper -- shows what appear to be three Predator drones outside a hangar at the end of the runway.

The senior U.S. official told FOX News that the U.S. was in fact launching Predator UAV strikes from at least one base in Pakistan, confirming a statement made by U.S. Senate intelligence committee Chairwoman Dianne Feinstein last week. The California Democrat riled intelligence circles when she seemed to reveal sensitive information about such a Pakistan-based staging ground during a hearing. The official said that slip led to the initial denials from other officials that the U.S. was using Pakistani bases.

The Times also obtained a copy of the Google Earth image, whose coordinates confirm that it is the Shamsi airfield, also known as Bandari, about 200 miles southwest of the Pakistani city of Quetta.

The Times reported that the CIA was secretly using Shamsi to launch the Predator drones that observe and attack Al Qaeda and Taliban militants around Pakistan's border with Afghanistan.

U.S. special forces used the airbase during the invasion of Afghanistan in 2001, but the Pakistani Government said in 2006 that the Americans had left and both sides have since denied repeatedly that Washington was using Pakistani bases.

Two senior U.S. defense officials had previously told FOX News that no Predator unmanned aerial vehicles are or have recently been based in Pakistani territory, despite Feinstein's statement. However, they could use the Shamsi air base if they needed to. The base is well known to the U.S. military and was used by the Americans in 2001 and 2002 at the beginning of the war in Afghanistan.

One U.S. official told FOX News the U.S. has been flying "Predators or UAVs" in Pakistan since 2002.

There have been 30 strikes since August with 11 top leaders of Al Qaeda taken out, according to intelligence reports.

Senior officials also confirm that Pakistan has been aiding the U.S. in its Predator unmanned aerial vehicle strikes in Pakistan's tribal areas, despite its leaders' very public protests that they see the strikes as a breach of sovereignty.

Both President Asif Ali Zardari and General Ashraf Kayani, the head of Pakistan's army, have turned a blind eye to the strikes. According to the officials, these two leaders have launched no protests behind the scenes to U.S. officials about the strikes.

Any public protests have been for public consumption inside Pakistan. One official, however, says that not all elements of the Pakistani government are aware of this cooperation or support it -- suggesting other civilian leaders may not be onboard.

This isn't the first natural phenomena that looks like it is man made because of some type of structure appearance. I watched a show on Discovery a year ago and they had so many things that people swore were man made by ancient civilizations and geologists and nature guru's proved they ALL were natural and not man made.

.........and I agree. Atlantis couldn't have been that old and for it to be that far down on the ocean floor would suggest it would have been around thousands and thousands of years ago and the sea would have had to rise that much in a short period of time. No way.


I'll believe it was where an alien ship was resting before I believe it was Atlantis.

I think it might be a set from LOST. Same guy who faked the entire plane at the bottom of the ocean is going to have built a fake city for some of the final season's flash forwards.

That, or the Snorks are real.

ancient evidence of civilization under water doesn't HAVE to be Atlantis. Atlantis didn't exist...doesn't mean something else before modern recorded history didn't.

That said, the reality is almsot always boring...unless you're a geologist.

I thought that most theories regarding Atlantis were revolving around "Atlantis" actually referring to the ancient Minoan civilization which was destroyed by flooding thousands of years ago?

Google Earth is extremely cool app to play with. We unofficially started to use it at work with the google draw program to provide an envisioning tool for for folks to work with and it key selling tool now.

Nice Lost Reference, maybe it's a viral campaign that the producers of Lost and Google partnered up on.

Take anything they have to say with a large pinch of salt.

If so, they fooled Drudge too. He has the link on his site...though, of course, this proves nothing.

I wonder how the walls/trenches could be preserved to the point of being visible beneath 3.5 miles of water. I imagine erosion underwater happens much more quickly than it does above water. So there's a lot to be skeptical about.

But if that's a natural phenomenon; I'm still a bit awestruck.
