I don’t believe in the Illuminati, but if I did then I’m sure that I would feel that my pet conspiracy theories about a secret cabal running the world would be bolstered by these incredible photographs of a secret pyramid built by the US government in the middle of North Dakota, one of America’s least populated states.
These pictures are of the Nekoma Pyramid, which was part of the Stanley R. Mickelsen Safeguard Complex, named after the former U.S. Army Air Defense Commanding General. Construction started in the early seventies and was completed in 1975. The Nekoma Pyramid was a missile site radar complex, used to locate missiles fired from foreign powers at the USA so that they could be destroyed. The base was armed with 30 Spartan anti-ballistic missiles and sixteen short-range Sprint missiles.
Firstly, why build a pyramid? The pyramid is one of the key symbols associated with the Illuminati, so was the architect “one of them” or was it just a coincidence? Who suggested a pyramid? Was it a more functional geometry for an all-seeing eye?
Secondly, who knew this base even existed out there in the wilderness? Not many, I’d guess.
The Mickelsen Safeguard Complex was deactivated on February 10th, 1976, less than a year after it had become operational and after tens of millions of dollar had been spent there. The reason was an arms limitation treaty that had been signed with the Soviet Union in 1972 limiting each side to only one such base.
A set of pictures taken for the government by photographer Benjammin Halpern, are available for viewing at the Library of Congress.
