For my 3,000th post - a question - What are the chances that on both days
Edited on Thu Jul-07-05 08:34 PM by Sydnie
of "major" terror attacks in major cities involved in the "War On Terror", that we would be running a scheduled terror training involving the very venue used for the attacks? On 9/11 we were running hijacking drills with our military response system and today they had a planned train drill in NY. What gives? Is there any connection or is my tin foil too tight? Could we have known something that we didn't share?

And what WAS Rudy doing there today?

Were we running any drills the day of the attacks in Madrid?

2. Were they running terror training in London today?
If so, that would be a bit fucking strange, IMHO.

5. Not in London, but in NY.
They had this training planned before this happened, but they ended up shutting the whole system down ... but not until after 11 this morning. Hours went by before they responded with warnings. Why?

3. Rudy is in training
They are trying to teach him how to be a perfect asshole, just like them.

7. Don't have a link but they have been reporting that they had these drills
planned all day. They showed a NY highway with the traffic backed up before they made the announcement that the warning color went up. I'll look for a link somewhere.

8. Found a link

There were also increased precautions on New York City's transit system.

Earlier on Thursday morning there had actually been a security drill with armed officers entering the New York subway - although this was unrelated to the London attacks.

No one in the states is talking about this drill now, but they sure talked about it a whole lot this morning. Just makes you wonder what they knew and why they had this planned for today. Could be a coincidence, but I am not convinced that it is.
