Does anyone have any thoughts or opinions on the simulated terrorism drill that took place in Denver on Friday?

 

Here are some links:

Huffington Post

 

Infowars (great video footage of the drill)

 

I am extremely surprised at the lack of mainstream media attention that this drill has received, and am very interested in hearing other people's opinions. I will write mine when I have a little more time.

Where I live, the schools often have live drills such as this- I am not talking about the typical fire drill, etc. But school shooting type drills in conjunction with SWAT teams, police, etc. It is very realistic.  Also, the hospitals in the city where I live also have these types of drills- and they have come in handy.

My mom works in this area was notified in advance by her work (she works for the gov't). My mom called the large newspapers in the areas and asked them why them weren't covering it....they all said they didn't want to interfere. So much for the press - sounds like they answered to a "higher power" in this situation!

I agree with you! Something painful, yet worthwhile to note is that before a lot of attacks on our citizens have be preceeded by drills similar to these horrifying occurences.

 

Here is one theory (written by Kurt Nimmo) : WARNING...Sensitive subjects discussed ahead.

 

In 2010, several days before John Patrick Bedell attacked two Pentagon cops and was killed, D.C. police staged a drill at the Friendship Heights Metro station in in Northwest Washington.

“Metro police and other emergency personnel will descend on the Friendship Heights Station starting at 11:30 Wednesday night for an anti-terrorist exercise in which mock gunmen open fire, killing or wounding several passengers,” Ann Scott Tyson reported for the Washington Post on February 22. “Agencies responding will include the Metro police special response team, as well as fire, police and emergency medical personnel from the District, Montgomery County and the FBI, according to a Metro statement.”

 

Prior to the Friendship Heights Metro station drill, on February 3, D.C. Metro Transit Police staged their largest anti-terrorism sweep ever, “some toting M-4 rifles and others guiding bomb-sniffing dogs,” according to the Post. “In coming months, they plan to hold similar drills for the effort, dubbed Blue TIDE (Terrorism Identification and Deterrence Effort).”

 

Drills are a prominent and highly suspicious feature of the attacks on September 11, 2001. New York City was scheduled to have a major terrorism training exercise September 11. It was called Tripod and was intended to test how well the city’s Office of Emergency Management would administer treatment in the event of a biological-terrorism attack. FEMA and the FBI were scheduled to participate.

 

FEMA spokesman Tom Kenney confirmed Tripod was scheduled to take place. He told Dan Rather on September 12, 2001, that FEMA was deployed to New York on Monday night, September 10th, to be ready to go into action on Tuesday morning, September 11th. Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani confirmed FEMA’s presence in the city during his testimony before the 9-11 Commission in 2004.

 

During its Vigilant Guardian exercise held on September 6, 2001, NORAD practiced for dealing with the simulated hijackings of two commercial aircraft by terrorists. The simulated hijackings were to occur on September 9, 10, and the morning of September 11.

 

The previous month, on August 30, the Department of Transportation held a tabletop exercise as part of its preparations for the 2002 Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City. “During that exercise, part of the scenario, interestingly enough, involved a potentially hijacked plane and someone calling on a cell phone, among other aspects of the scenario that were very strange when 12 days later, as you know, we had the actual event [of 9/11],” Ellen Engleman, the administrator of the DOT’s Research and Special Programs Administration, said in October, 2001.

 

In early August of 2001, a mass casualty exercise was held at the Pentagon. The scenario envisioned a hijacked plane hitting the Pentagon. “[It was] purely a coincidence, the scenario for that exercise included a plane hitting the building,” General Lance Lord, the assistant vice chief of staff of the Air Force who was one of the participants in the exercise, told the Air Force Space Command News in September, 2002.

 

On the morning of September 11, within minutes of the attack on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, the CIA was engaged in “a pre-planned simulation to explore the emergency response issues that would be created if a plane were to strike a building.” The Bush administration described the event as “a bizarre coincidence.”

 

And then there was the terrorist drill held in London during the July 7, 2005, attack. “At half past nine this morning we were actually running an exercise for a company of over a thousand people in London based on simultaneous bombs going off precisely at the railway stations where it happened this morning, so I still have the hairs on the back of my neck standing up right now,” Peter Power, Managing Director of Visor Consultants, a private firm on contract to the London Metropolitan Police, told the BBC.

 

After the London attack, math on the odds of a drill occurring at the same time was calculated. “The odds were one in 3,715,592,613,265,750,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000. This is obviously a figure open to conjecture but it gives you an idea of the ballpark improbability we are talking about,” Paul Jospeh Watson wrote for Prison Planet on July 23, 2005. (See Probability of 7/7 Drill and Attack Coinciding.)

 

The odds on the drill at the Friendship Heights Metro station in in Northwest Washington and the Blue TIDE exercise held earlier prior to the Pentagon shooting are much lower, but suspicious nonetheless.

 

The exercises were not mentioned by the corporate media after the Pentagon shooting. The fact drills and exercises parallel such events are irrelevant to the corporate media.
