Another DHS “Exercise” Planned: The Risk of Terrorism Drills Becoming Reality

If government had the citizens best interests at heart, we wouldn’t have to worry when they planned an exercise for our safety. In fact, it would be a good thing, if we could trust the government, that they were training so hard to keep us safe in the event of an emergency.

But the government does not care about the citizens and is not interested in keeping us safe. You cannot trust the government, and that is why it is always a bit terrifying to find out they have a Homeland Security exercise planned.

Even more concerning is that the security exercises increasing target “home grown terrorists” and “right wing extremists.”

For instance, a bill passed the House of Representatives last Friday “To require an exercise related to terrorist and foreign fighter travel,” which would involve multiple agencies training for different scenarios.

One scenario involves preventing a hypothetical American traveling to a foreign country to pledge their support to the terrorists.

The second scenario outlined, which according to the bill must be included in the training exercise, targets “terrorist infiltration into the United States, including United States citizens.”

If the authorization for the exercise passes the Senate, we will be monitoring the available details of where and when it will implemented, because actual terrorist attacks and mass shootings have tended to align with the government’s training operations.

Past Exercises Turned Real

Consider the Boston Marathon Bombing, and the very real and undisputed facts about the similarities to a planned Department of Homeland Security exercise planned for Boston two months after the attack.

Without even delving into the conspiracy theories, there are quite a few eyebrow-raising similarities to what had been planned in the exercise, and what actually happened the day of the attack.

“Operation Urban Shield” would involve multiple federal and state law enforcement agencies training for a scenario in which “Free America Citizens,” a made up home-grown terror organization, would leave backpacks around the city of Boston.

Officials from a dozen agencies had been meeting for months to plan the scenario. They behaved much like movie producers, recruiting students from Northeastern University and the Boston Police Academy to play the parts of terrorists and witnesses.
