American citizens are being trained that their best friend or their closest neighbor could be a terrorist in ‘Community Awareness Program’ classes sponsored by the same DHS-linked non-profit group which was behind the infamous “Recognizing the Eight Signs of Terrorism” video, a PSA that suggested buying gold was a suspicious activity.
“The face of antiterrorism in Colorado includes a former Washington lobbyist, an ex-Marine from Lakewood whose wife gives him the evil eye when he’s sizing up potential threats at Denver International Airport, and a native New Yorker who refuses to ride on the subway and spends as little time as possible in high-rise buildings,” reports the Denver Post.
The story is little more than a promotional vehicle for ‘Community Awareness Program’ courses being run out of Lakewood Police Department in Denver, Colorado.
The classes are taught by Diana Woodson, an administrative assistant in the safety, security and facilities department of the Regional Transportation District. Woodson doesn’t just communicate her paranoia, she lives it, telling her students that although she hails from New York, upon her return she refuses to ride the subway or enter skyscrapers.
The most chilling aspect of the course is the fact that Woodson teaches her students that their best friend or closest neighbor could be a terrorist.
“It’s not going to be the person that you think it’s going to be,” said Woodson. “He’s your best neighbor, your best pal. It doesn’t always look like the bad guy; it can be someone unassuming.”
