If they want to make us look the other way on this, they're gonna have to be a bit more circumspect about it.
Agents from the U.S. Air Force and FBI recently raided homes in Clark and Lincoln counties in an investigation of a man who operates a website about the top-secret military base known as Area 51, a spokesman said Wednesday.
The Air Force Office of Special Investigations and FBI entered homes owned by Joerg Arnu in Las Vegas and the tiny town of Rachel on Nov. 3 and seized potential evidence for an undisclosed joint agency probe, according to Lt. Col. Bryon McGarry, spokesman for Nellis Air Force Base in Las Vegas.
"This is an open and ongoing law enforcement investigation between the Las Vegas FBI and Air Force OSI," McGarry said in a statement.
Oh yeah real subtle guys. Here's some exclusive footage of the FBI's really subtle raid on this little-known conspiracy theory website:
I mean seriously it does kind of sound that bad:
Arnu said both his homes were raided "without warning" on Nov. 3 "by 15-20 agents in full riot gear." The agents broke open the doors while Arnu was in the Rachel home and his girlfriend at the Las Vegas one, and then they "were detained and treated in the most disrespectful way."
"My girlfriend was led out into the street barefoot and only in her underwear in full view of the neighbors," he said. "I was led outside, handcuffed and only in a t-shirt and sweats in sub-freezing temperatures."
