Southern Barrier, Part 5
As we move eastwards along the U.S. / Mexico border we have the
Primary barrier topped with an additional climb proof fence. The
odd building just beyond the barrier -- to the south -- is a former
Soviet KGB lookout tower used to observe U.S. Navy ships 10 miles
to the north in San Diego bay and also used to monitor the borderline
itself for at least five miles east and west. The KGB building
has a far better view of the border than does the Border Patrol.
What today's Russian spy agency -- the FSB -- is doing with the
equipment behind those "airport control tower" windows
is anybody's guess.
Odd things still go on here. If you note the position of the
innocent "satellite TV antenna" in the image above and
compare it to the position of that same antenna in the image below
you can see that it can track things, somewhere.
