“Is this real-world or exercise?”: Cyber-PsyOps Warfare & 9/11
(Moderators: Permission to post long excerpt granted by author. -r.)

“Is this real-world or exercise?”: Cyber-PsyOps Warfare & 9/11 by Mssr. Jouet

Part I (of 7): 9/11, Simulation and “Red Teaming”

What was the time span between the awareness of the US military of the second hijacking (a clear indication of an aberrant event, confirmed in a short time by the first and second WTC impacts) and the impact on the Pentagon?

It is tempting to see the totality of 9/11 as a single event, but in reality those events played out over hours -- yet were sometimes measured in minutes, or seconds (or even milliseconds) over multiple locations from Boston to Washington to Florida and beyond.

9/11 was a series of inter-connected events.

Furthermore, we know that there were extensive warnings in advance by sources both inside and outside the US. Indeed, there was a palpable prodrome (a period of time during which early warning signs can be observed or experienced) that was acknowledged and noted at that time by many. (The 9/11 prodrome was so palpable that the US military community drilled for it for years in advance.)

We also know -- despite the fact that we think that 9/11 came to a close as the dust settled and the President returned to Washington to address the nation -- that the events of 9/11 continued on beyond that day, as evidenced by the anthrax events, the clean-up, and the discussions about investigations that dragged on for years, as well as the war, infringement of liberties, torture, governmental abuses and cover-ups done in its wake.

But even when thinking only about that “severe clear” September morning, it must be acknowledged that any encounter of a modern-day military nature must necessarily be a dynamic event… in other words, it can change nature, tempo and focus as it evolves through multiple bifurcations, Moebian twists and the forced false perceptions of mind war.

The Battle of the Bulge, for example, can be seen as a single event, but it had a prodrome period that extended for months, and Patton’s G-2 smelled out the attack before it occurred; the event had several phases, critical moments, and critical locations, each with their distinct nature and characteristics; the whole event lasted for ten days, two weeks, or a month, depending on how you want to see the event in retrospect.

War-gaming since its inception was developed to explore this dynamism: multiple scenarios, multiple roles, simulated “injects” and “wild cards” are used to introduce such change, and numerous methods and approaches are used to mimic or simulate “the fog of war”. Note that the motto of the agency which coordinates the development of military computer simulation technologies (STRICOM) is “All But War Is Simulation”. In recent history, war-gaming and simulation have been used extensively inside and outside the military as a means of creating indirect experience with these dynamics. The value of such indirect experience is discussed on the first page of the first chapter of the seminal 1954 book Strategy by Sir. B. H. Liddell Hart, published in 1954.

and note the relevance of simulation to Desert Storm and the battle of 73 Easting. Captain Joe Sartiano, commander of Troop G at the battle of 73 Easting during Desert Storm, was asked how his troop had been able to do so well their first time in combat. He answered that it wasn’t their first time: the troop had been exposed to combat repeatedly through the National Training Center and an array of simulations. .

The Clancy/Franks book also has an excellent description of a synchronization matrix and its use during Desert Storm. Synchronization is "the ability to focus resources and activities in time and space to produce maximum relative combat power at the decisive point."

“This paper* proposes an automated technique (labeled the "Dynamic Synchronization Matrix") for synchronizing forces at the operational level. The Dynamic Synchronization Matrix is a simple adaptation of a commercial project management program, run on a personal computer, which improves upon existing capabilities because it combines the two distinct major improvements of PERT methodology and automation. This decision support tool improves upon the two-dimensional synchronization matrices that enable modern tactical planning, command and control by making connections between time, space, forces, functions, actions, and effects which the average human would have difficulty making and storing…. The net gains in employing the DSM include more disciplined planning, greater flexibility in subsequent planning and execution, multiple display options, greater speed, agility, and accuracy, enhanced situational awareness and information management, insights into one's own plans, and enemy strengths and vulnerabilities, and linkage and applicability to subordinate echelons and other levels of war.”

One of the key elements in military-caliber simulation gaming is the use of “Red Teaming”. This is in close parallel to the use of “Team B” as developed during the Reagan administration under the tutelage of his DCI, George Herbert Walker Bush. See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Team_B .

“The “Red Team”: Forging a Well-Conceived Contingency Plan”, by Col. Timothy Malone and Major Reagan Schaupp (both USAF), describes the use of “red-teaming, synchronization matrices and simulation for improved mission planning and mission rehearsal. The use of “a group of subject-matter experts (SME), with various, appropriate … disciplinary backgrounds, that provides an independent peer review of products and processes, acts as a devil’s advocate, and knowledgeably role-plays the enemy and outside agencies, using an iterative, interactive process during operations planning.”

“An effective Red Team can pinpoint key Blue decision points, identify planning shortfalls, show deviations from doctrine, reveal overlooked opportunities, and extrapolate unanticipated strategic implications.”

“Field Marshal Helmuth von Moltke’s adage ‘no plan survives contact with the enemy’ is true. But through Red Teaming, a plan can be refined after each contact with a Red Team. This process is valuable because it brings a contingency plan, together with the reasoning and information behind it, under the scrutiny of a well-simulated enemy. Better still, the Red Team can imitate outside agencies, higher headquarters, and even “Murphy’s Law.” A plan that survives this kind of treatment should be healthy indeed. To modify Gen George S. Patton’s famous quotation, ‘A good plan, well rehearsed, is better than a perfect plan unrehearsed’.”
http://www.airpower.au.af.mil/airchronicles/apj/apj02/s...

The Red Team can also discover (through drills, exercises, table-tops and simulations) how protocols, communications, and command thinking function in a given scenario.

Simulation and operations are simply two sides of the same coin.

Review, at the end of this series, the range of exercises and drills that were focused on 9/11-like scenarios for years prior to 9/11.

1. Martha Raddatz

Martha Raddatz has to be the hardest working reporter in the military-entertainment complex. From covering the JFK Jr. case(1) to being a guest on Bill Maher(2) and scoring interviews with Cheney.

Interview of the Vice President by Martha Raddatz, ABC News

Just wish she had asked Dick one or 2 more questions:

Were you directing the hijacked planes from the bunker?

4. NORAD Stand Down in 2 minutes
George Washington's Blog: The 9/11 Stand Down in 2 Minutes
"If our government had merely nothing, and I say that as an old interceptor pilot—I know the drill, I know what it takes, I know how long it takes, I know what the procedures are, I know what they were, and I know what they’ve changed them to—if our government had merely done nothing, and allowed normal procedures to happen on that morning of 9/11, the Twin Towers would still be standing and thousands of dead Americans would still be alive. That is treason!"

9. Cheney's Hostile Takeover Was Planned From The Beginning
Winter Patriot: Former GOP Senator Says Cheney's Hostile Takeover Was Planned From The Beginning

"I encourage you to take on the mantle of fearless, thoughtful, but loyal dissent when the situation calls for it," -- DefSec Robert Gates

The President-elect had his agenda; we were just along for the ride. -- Lincoln Chafee

YouTube - O'Neill: Bush determined to invade Iraq from Day One. (2004)

In a bunker beneath the East Wing of the White House, Cheney locked his eyes on CNN, chin resting on interlaced fingers. He was about to watch, in real time, as thousands were killed on Sept. 11, 2001.

10. The more recent false-flag / "training exercise" in the news today.
Jury fails to reach verdict in July 7 bomb case - CNN.com

http://www.cnn.com/2008/WORLD/europe/08/01/jury.terror....

YouTube - London Bombing War Games, The Inside Job

At the same time the London bombings happen, and at the same locations an anti-terrorist drill was taking place in London. The head of Visor Consultants, Peter Power, a crisis management firm based in London, he was the former spokes person for Scotland yard. He told national television and ITN news that they were running drills and when the attacks happen they switched into "real" scenario. The odds of an attack being carried out at the same time as the drill was taking place is 1/10000000000000000000000000000000000000
