Update: Austin Terror Threat Confirmed, Why Weren’t We Warned?
Things that make you go “hmm”.

In a follow up to our previous report on the law enforcement terror advisory for Austin, Texas, we have confirmed both that the terrorism threat is real and that there is a simultaneous multi-agency terror drill going down in Austin right now.
We want to know why the press release on the Homeland Security drill wasn’t sent to the media until August 7th — the day before the actual terror threat — and why press coverage about the threat advisory – appearing on local news channel KXAN – only emerged on the night of the 8th, while the reported Austin threat was already underway. Furthermore, we’re now being told theTexas Military Forces protection alert sent to police and law enforcement a few weeks ago – and since leaked to the public – was “sent out by mistake“.
