Last Show Recap

Fifty miles off the coast of Nantucket, 250 feet beneath the Atlantic, lies the RMS Republic and her secret treasure. As soon as Republic sank, rumors spread of a precious cargo, but the ship has kept her secrets intact for over a century, until now. Life-long treasure hunter Martin Bayerle joined Connie Willis (email) for all four hours to discuss how he has devoted the past 35 years of his life researching the shipwreck and proving the existence of her reputed cargo of 150,000 American Eagle gold coins, a bounty worth a billion dollars in today’s economy, and his quest to recover the it on his second attempt at the Republic.

Is Saddam Underground?

Is Saddam Underground?

One country that has created an elaborate underground labyrinth of bunkers, residences and tunnels is Iraq, and it's possible that Saddam Hussein is currently hiding out in a subterranean location there.

The recent special Saddam's Secret Tunnels(1) on the History Channel, explored some of these mysterious underground locations that it's believed Saddam began building back in the 1980's, using equipment and materials from countries around the world. He ordered the construction of an intricate network, "with miles of interconnected tunnels with camouflaged entry points, and escape routes to Syria," Newsweek's Christopher Dickey commented.

Saddam is said to have been inspired by the Yugoslavian dictator Tito's impenetrable bunker system. In fact, his underground "Project 2000," built across from the Presidential Palace, was hit by 5,000 lb. precision bombs during the recent conflict, and though, the US military says the state of the bunker is "classified," it is believed it is largely undamaged. Because many of the underground facilities in Iraq are equipped with efficient water and air filtration systems, as well as food supplies, it's possible Saddam could live down in one of them, or move between such locations, for months on end.
