Ghostbusters: Are military bases haunted?

As a unapologetic Fortean, I must admit that I'm bothered by the above article's inclusion in Scientific American -- not because of the subject, but because of the conspicuous lack of journalistic follow-up. For example, there's a potentially interesting reference to batteries discharging faster than usual in areas believed to be "haunted," yet we're given no real reason to accept the claim as anything but the opinion of committed ghost-hunters.
