OSI's Best Friend

Open Source Intelligence (OSI) fans are abuzz about the
latest gaffe by Vice President Joe Biden.

This time the gaffe master has confirmed the existence of a secret bunker under
the old U.S. Naval Observatory,
which is now the home of the Vice President.

Biden revealed the location while filling in for President Obama at the Gridiron
Club dinner.

According to Eleanor Clift on the Newsweek blog,
Biden "said a young naval officer giving him a tour of the residence showed him
the hideaway,

which is behind a massive steel door secured by an elaborate lock with a narrow
connecting hallway lined with shelves filled with communications equipment."

In December of 2002, neighbors of the Naval Observatory complained of loud
construction work being done at the Naval Observatory, which has been used as a
residence by vice presidents since 1974.

The upset neighbors were sent a letter by the observatory's superintendent,
calling the work "sensitive in nature" and "classified" and that it was urgent
it be completed "on a highly accelerated schedule."
