The Department of Homeland Security is conducting a âtop secretâ drill codenamed âOperation Independenceâ across the United States today, during which officers in riot gear as well as undercover agents will patrol transport hubs.
According to a report by KTTV, the exercise is a âfull scale terrorism drillâ taking place nationwide. In Los Angeles, the drill involves the LA County Sheriffâs Department, Homeland Security and TSA agents, as well as plain clothed officers who will be, âworking undercover, looking like any other passenger, they scour faces, briefcases and backpacks, looking for anything out of the ordinary.â
Officials claim the drills are to make the public feel âsafeâ in light of claims that the alleged Boston Bombers had planned a July 4 terror attack in New York.
According to Nicole Nishida of the Los Angeles County Sheriffâs Department, Americans will celebrate their âindependenceâ from tyranny by submitting to random bag searches.
Although the drill is âhigh visibilityâ in one sense â cops dressed in riot gear will be involved â many details of the exercise remain âtop secret and thatâs the way it should be. Only they need to know what the game plan is,â reports KTTV.
Instead of asking hard questions about what precisely taxpayer dollars were being spent on, the news channel prsotituted itself to become a mouthpiece for the authorities, justifying the drill by hyping the threat of terrorism â when in reality academic studies show that Americans are more likely to be killed by accident-causing deer, severe allergic reactions to peanuts, or bee stings than they are by terrorists.
âWhat we need to know, or rather be reminded of, is that the threats, homegrown and imported, are all too real. And in one way, weâre all undercover agents who need to be aware of our surroundings,â states the report, encouraging Americans to become spies for the state.
