FEMA Drill Conspiracy Theory, Flame Away


Election Day Terror Drills

Cheney In Command? --by Michael Kane

EMERGENCY REPORT!

Due to the critical nature of this story, any and every news organization is permitted to publish this story in its entirety as long as it remains unchanged and a link is provided back to the original publication of the story here at CLG: http://www.legitgov.org/essay_kane_fema_terror_drill_10... .

This report was written in haste due to the critical nature of getting it out immediately. I call all concerned citizens to help. This is a call to intellectual arms!

I recommend ALL reporters and concerned citizens contact the Office of Domestic Preparedness and BOMBARD THEM WITH QUESTIONS about the scenario, below. Call Marc Short at 202-616-8952. He is the ODP Media Contact for the FEMA drill, as described. This is too critical to let slide; EVERYONE must get involved. Let them know that WE KNOW what is going on. An informed citizenry is an empowered citizenry!

October 29, 2004 --A plan may be afoot to induce a national terror threat on Election Day to lower voter turnout and steal the election for Bush once again, but this time in a different manner.

At least three states have WMD/Terrorism Incident drills scheduled for Tuesday, November 2, 2004 Election Day. As of May 8, 2001, Dick Cheney was placed in charge of managing all domestic preparedness related to Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD). It is likely that Cheney will be managing all of the Election Day WMD/Terrorism Incident drills across the country. The presidential statement, which gave Cheney this power, also created the Office of National Preparedness.

FEMAs website makes the national announcement, but omits any dates, saying only that this is a training course that takes place over three 8-hour days. The course is headed by the Office of Domestic Preparedness.

The D.C. Emergency Management Agency has a Public Works WMD/Terrorism Incident training scheduled for November 2, 2004. The location is listed as, To Be Determined.

Senator Dayton recently announced he was closing his DC office due to intelligence reports of possible terrorism in DC He stated he would not advise anyone to go to the Capitol between now and the election.

Arizona is running a WMD/Terrorism Incident exercise on Election Day. UPI picked this up on their wire and the Washington Times ran the story immediately after Nico Haupt broke the story at http://inn.globalfreepress.com .

The training is designed around interactive exercises and group scenarios.

I contacted Marc Short at the Office of Domestic Preparedness who said, This course is offered by the ODP (Office of Domestic Preparedness) Training Division through the Texas Engineering Extension Service (TEEX). The target audience for this course is state and local first responders.

Texas is another state running this WMD/Terror Incident training drill, the same name as Arizonas drill. The date is omitted and location is listed as other, though it is almost certain this exercise will be running on Election Day, as well. I questioned Mr. Short via email, asking if a real terror incident occurred on Election Day, would those involved in the training scenario be in a position to respond to it? He did not deny that this drill was running on November 2, 2004.
He stated:

"If an incident occurs, the decision to deploy first responders involved in this training remains with their respective agencies."

Personally, nothing would surprise me with this bunch.

3. Have you ever considered the fact that FEMA has no offensive capacity?
They don't pose much of a threat

7. ? Were you instructed to keep the plans secret? Or are you saying that

in your opinion, they will not be able to crush any possible insurgencies?

6. I've been expecting a dirty bomb.

My guess has been that Cheney will set off a dirty bomb and blame it on terrorists in order to declare martial law and nullify the election. Obviously it will be somewhere that Cheney is not. I know the chimp will be in Crawford. If Cheney is in DC, it won't be there. But I've been expecting it. Us MIHOPs figure that killing a few thousand more innocent Americans in order to hold onto their power is a tactic the pukes would definitely consider.

13. What time do you expect the bomb to go off?
I want to make sure I'm in a secure location.

14. Well, actually not until after the election.

I don't think they can steal this one, so I'm looking for a November or December surprise.
