chicago attack
In practicing for terror exercises over Chicago, is Falcon Virgo 09-Windy City-One, a red flag warning that there could be an immanent attack?  Could Sears Tower, now called Willis Tower as of last week, be the next catastrophic terrorist attack on U.S. Soil?  Willis Group Holdings, a London-based insurance broker is the new owner http://www.willistower.com/– will they be the  next 9/11 or the 9/11-2b?   The zip code of the Sears- er, Willis Tower is 60606- 666!  I still hear Joe Biden’s warning that in the next 6 months America and President Obama will be tested. 

 
“TYNDALL AIR FORCE BASE, Fla. – The North American Aerospace Defense Command and its geographical component, the Continental United States NORAD Region (CONR), will conduct a one-day exercise, Falcon Virgo 09-Windy City-One, July 21 in Chicago. “The exercise comprises a series of training flights held in coordination with the Federal Aviation Administration, Chicago Air Route Traffic Control Center, Chicago Terminal Radar Approach Control, the Continental U.S. NORAD Region, Customs and Border Protection and CORN’s Eastern Air Defense.” Sector” http://www.norad.mil/News/2009/072009.html
 
Since Sept. 11, 2001, NORAD fighters have responded to more than 2,100 possible air threats in the United States and have flown more than 51,000 sorties.  51,000 sorties  in 8 years?   Ummm that works out …….8 years times 52 weeks in a year equals a total of 416 weeks-  times 7 days in a week, equals 2,912 days.  Take those 51,000 sorties divided by the 2912 days and you get an average of 17.5 sorties flown every single day since 9-11.  Holy shit, batman.  Yet, we need more practice?
 
Tuning in my antennae, military exercises were operational leading up to the events of September 11, 2001.  One 9/11 Report, NORAD Exercises Hijack Summary http://www.scribd.com/doc/16411947/NORAD-Exercises-Hijack-Summary  simulated aircraft hijackings by terrorists over NYC.  HistoryCommons.org also hosts Timelines of entities and events, based on mainstream sources- the National Archives’ 9/11 Commission records are uploaded here for the Complete 9/11 Timeline http://www.scribd.com/HistoryCommons
 
The military unit most involved in the exercises leading to 9/11, Vigilant Guardian was NORAD’s Northeast Air Defense Sector (NEADS).  The imaginary scenario and exercises played out in reality days later. Labeling it a failed emergency response on the day of the attacks, is to put it mildly. 
 
“For the NEADS crew, 9/11 was not a story of four hijacked airplanes, but one of a heated chase after more than a dozen potential hijackings—some real, some phantom—that emerged from the turbulence of misinformation that spiked in the first 100 minutes of the attack and continued well into the afternoon and evening,” wrote Vanity Fair Magazine.  Asking, “How did the U.S. Air Force respond on 9/11? Could it have shot down United 93, as conspiracy theorists claim? Obtaining 30 hours of never-before-released tapes from the control room of NORAD’s Northeast head-quarters, the author reconstructs the chaotic military history of that day—and the Pentagon’s apparent attempt to cover it up.
 
Paragraph #1680, page 346
“The North American Aerospace Defense Command imagined the possible use of aircraft as weapons, too, and developed exercises to counter such a threat—from planes coming to the United States from overseas, perhaps carrying a weapon of mass destruction. None of this speculation was based on actual intelligence of such a threat. One idea, intended to test command and control plans and NORAD’s readiness, postulated a hijacked airliner coming from overseas and crashing into the Pentagon. The idea was put aside in the early planning of the exercise as too much of a distraction from the main focus (war in Korea), and as too unrealistic.As we pointed out in chapter 1, the military planners assumed that since such aircraft would be coming from overseas; they would have time to identify the target and scramble interceptors.”

“Northeast Air Defense Sector—DAT Audio Files—11 Sep 2001.”This is not an exercise.”
 
A National Level Exercise, 2009 (NLE ’09) is scheduled July 27-31, 2009. “NLE 09 will allow terrorism prevention efforts to proceed to a logical end (successful or not), with no requirement for response or recovery activities.” http://www.fema.gov/media/fact_sheets/nle09.shtm No requirement for response ? In the event of a real attack during the NLE, we we again have menial response like on 9/11 or no response at all?  Our U.S. military and federal agencies, in cooperation with foreign troops from Australia, Canada, Mexico and the United Kingdom (Yes- foreign troops on U.S. Soil !) will be practicing for more imaginary catastrophic events concentrated around Washington, DC and FEMA Region VI, which includes the states of Arkansas, Louisiana, New Mexico, Oklahoma and Texas.
 
Rather ironic FEMA issued this press release regarding  Texas, today July 21, 2009, ” has awarded more than $20 million in hazard mitigation grants to the city of Galveston to acquire 64 homes that suffered extensive damage as a result of Hurricane Ike. One $15.3 million grant was obligated to Galveston for authorities to acquire 46 residential properties located in the 100-year floodplain. Another grant provides $5.4 million to be used for the acquisition of 18 properties in the 100-year floodplain. http://www.fema.gov/news/newsrelease.fema?id=49128  By math math, that 40 million dollars to acquire 128 houses or property–that an average of $312,000 each. Estimated median house or condo value in 2007: $119,658 http://www.city-data.com/housing/houses-Galveston-Texas.html
 
Terrorist attacks don’t just come from plane, trains, automobiles, bombs or in physicality, as The Corbett Report http://www.corbettreport.com/articles/20090717_cyber_911.htm asks, did the real cyber 9/11 attack occur on 9/11?   
 
President Bush signed the plans to invade Afghanistan on Sept. 10th, the day before 9/11 and just yesterday it was announced that another 25,000 soldiers were heading to Afghanistan- pronto.  And as Ron Paul reminded us eight years ago, “We should recognize that American tax dollars helped to create the very Taliban government that now wants to destroy us. In the late 1970s and early 80s, the CIA was very involved in the training and funding of various fundamentalist Islamic groups in Afghanistan, some of which later became today’s brutal Taliban government. In fact, the U.S. government admits to giving the groups at least 6 billion dollars in military aid and weaponry, a staggering sum that would be even larger in today’s dollars.” 
A unique timeline of more events of 9/11 and the Al Qaeda and the Taliban is here http://s3.amazonaws.com/911timeline/main/AAafghanwar.html 
 
Neil Barofsky, special inspector general for the Treasury’s Troubled Asset Relief Program say the U.S. rescue may reach $23.7 Trillion dollars admitting offered criticism in a separate quarterly report of Treasury’s implementation of TARP, saying the department has “repeatedly failed to adopt recommendations” needed to provide transparency and fulfill the administration’s goal to implement TARP “with the highest degree of accountability.”
As a result, taxpayers don’t know how TARP recipients are using the money or the value of the investments, he said in the report. sourced at http://globaleconomicanalysis.blogspot.com/2009/07/tarp-special-investigator-says-bailout.html.  The other aberration of America’s economic woes is paying $15 million dollars for toilets on the international space station http://www.hightechscience.org/zero_gravity_toilet.htm   
 
In this era of supposed transparency, is is painfully obvious that  the 9/11 Commission omitted so many things and deceived the public.  Our government will continue to do so in the name of national security.  Printing, spending and loosing trillions and loosing more lives in terrorist attacks here or abroad is beyond absurd.  The Stenster blog claims, “The failure of the FBI to investigate our professional and proven analysis indicates that the pending 9/11-2B attack is an official conspiracy. The propagandizing by CNN and other Jewish-controlled media against U.S. militias like Ghost Troop indicates that they are a part of that conspiracy.” http://stienster.blogspot.com/
 
Pray -practice makes perfect as the NORAD Press Release says – Falcon Virgo Windy City-Two and Windy City -Three are future exercises that have yet to be scheduled.

Stand1990 

Conspiracy, science fiction, reality and all things aside, this Swine Flu, or Influenza H1N1 is one huge threat.  I wonder if this latest pandemic could end up in a Captain Trips reality.  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Captain_Trips  Captain Trips was the name of a superflu from Steven King’s best seller, The Stand.  I just finished my third read of the 1000+ page book and recommend it highly. Captain Trips, A6 is also mentioned in Night Surf, Wolves of the Calla, Song of Susannah, and The Dark TowerSadly I am stuck on page 25 of Atlas Shrugged- yawn.

In The Stand, a form of superflu called Captain Trips originates in an American biological weapons lab under the Mojave Desert in California. The official code name of the virus development project was “Project Blue.”  Believed to have been created by breeding a hybrid of influenza and an AIDS like illness, 99.4% of the human population is vulnerable and the disease is universally and swiftly fatal to those that catch it.  Some people have immunity (although it is implied that the survivors are chosen by a higher power). http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Captain_Trips 

King outlines the total breakdown and destruction of society through widespread violence, the failure of martial law to contain the outbreak, and eventually the death of virtually the entire population.  Science Fiction?  Future Reality? Martial Law in America?  Fema Camps? We pray that a higher power could save humanity, but we also pray for cures that so far, have not stopped deaths inevitable knock on the door. 

Whatever your personal thoughts on God, the invention of vaccines and medicine have for the most part prevented millions of deaths.  So did Satan create the virus?  Who would might we identify as evil today?  Government?  Pharmaceutical Companies?  Scientists? Terrorists?  http://snardfarker.ning.com/profiles/blogs/vaccins-the-who-dr-robertson is convinced it is the God of Science. 

Dr. Leonard Horowitz, Harvard trained in emerging diseases implicates an “Anglo American network of engineers in a conspiracy to commit genocide.”  http://www.healthyworldstore.com/downloads/mexican_flu_2009-special_report_by_dr._leonard_horowitz.pdf” 

Dr. James S. Robertson, England’s leading bioengineer of flu viruses for the vaccine industry, and avid promoter of U.S. Government funding for lucrative “biodefense” contracts, along with collaborators at the US Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC), helped Novavax, Inc., in Bethesda, Maryland, produce genetically-modified recombinants of the avian, swine, and Spanish flu viruses, H5N1 and H1N1, nearly identical to the unprecedented Mexican virus that has now spread to the United States. The outbreak was precisely timed to promote the company’s new research and huge vaccine stockpiling contracts, according to Dr. Horowitz http://ukpmc.ac.uk/articlerender.cgi?artid=1242433

In response to the outbreak, Novavax is making a VLP, virus-like particle vaccine, candidate against the outbreak strain. Using Novavax’s recombinant technology, the VLPs will be genetically matched to the H1N1 influenza strain recommended by CDC, with the potential to induce specific and protective immunity. Further, the VLP approach has the potential of a rapid response as vaccine may be made and released for administration within 12 weeks of knowing the genetic sequence of the outbreak strain.http://www.pharmaceuticalonline.com/article.mvc/Novavax-Announces-Enrollment-In-The-Second-0001?VNETCOOKIE=NO  That is some impressive timing I’d say.  So much for long term studies, efficacyand long term side effects.

Whatever our government’s involvement in possibly creating the virus in the first place, it has been working on a program for responding to a mass superflu outbreak as early as 2001:    

HHS has also developed the National Pharmaceutical Stockpile Program (NPS) into a major national security asset. The purpose of the NPS is to be able to rapidly respond to a domestic biological or chemical terrorist event with antibiotics, antidotes, vaccines and medical materiel to help save lives and prevent further spread of disease resulting from the terrorist threat agent. Operated by HHS’s Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the NPS Program would provide an initial, broad-based response within 12 hours of the federal authorization to deploy, followed by a prompt and more targeted response as dictated by the specific nature of the biological or chemical agent that is used.  One of the NPS “12-hour Push Packages” was brought to operational status on September 11th. CDC delivered a 12-hour Push Package of pharmaceuticals and medical supplies by ground, vendor managed inventory by air, and a technical advisory team in New York City, all within 7 hours of the order to deploy. Three out of the four non-military aircraft in United States airspace on the night of September 11th were carrying National Pharmaceutical Stockpile assets and personnel to New York City.

The Stockpile Program was developed as a supplementary response asset mainly to address biological and chemical terrorism. But following the events of September 11th, the program is now being expanded for response to an all-hazards event. The Stockpile presently is able to provide a full course of anthrax post-exposure prophylaxis to more than 2 million persons. Secretary Thompson has directed that the Stockpile development be accelerated to provide increased anthrax prophylaxis capacity for 12 million persons, and CDC will reach that level of response within the next 12 months. We will also add four more push packs to the eight already located across the country, making more emergency supplies available and augmenting our existing supplies of 400 tons by another 200 tons.

But we must accelerate the production of vaccines and antibiotics and invest in essential programs to ensure the speedy and orderly distribution of antibiotics and other supplies in the event of a biological event. That is why the President has called for an additional $1.5 billion in federal funding for those areas most critical to our ability to respond to bioterrorist threats. His proposal includes include $643 million to expand the National Pharmaceutical Stockpile and $509 million to speed the development and purchase of smallpox vaccine.

Just last week, Secretary Thompson announced that Acambis Inc., with support from its subcontractor, Baxter International Inc., has been awarded a $428 million contract to produce 155 million doses of smallpox vaccine by the end of 2002. Production of the vaccine under the new contract could begin as soon as this month and, once completed, will bring the total number of vaccine doses in the nation’s stockpile to 286 million by the end of next year, enough to protect every United States citizen, if needed. In light of increasing concerns regarding the possible use of biological agents such as smallpox in acts of terrorism or war, HHS is undertaking efforts to stockpile as much vaccine as needed to protect the nation in the event of an outbreak of smallpox. http://www.hhs.gov/asl/testify/t011205.html

Ironically, Baxter Pharmaceutical after numerous faux pas including distributing Avian Flu vaccines, and AIDS type II tainted plasma is the WHO’s leading choice in developing an H1N1, Swine Flu Vaccine. https://ahrcanum.wordpress.com/2009/03/11/vaccine-drug-deadly-costs-mistakes-threaten-pandemic/.  Baxter also has a plant within 50 miles of ground zero for the flu outbreak in Mexico City, Mexico.  Gee, I thought smallpox was eliminated.

Curiously during the morning of 9/11, the U.S. was sponsoring five war games exercises paralyzing standard operational procedures. http://www.oilempire.us/wargames.html  National Pharmaceutical Stockpile Program (NPS) has been renamed- The Strategic National Stockpile (SNS) Whatever name you give, the game shows we are unprepared for a pandemic outbreak. 

Let’s hope practice makes perfect: 

The next National Level Exercise 2009 (NLE 09) is scheduled for July 27 through July 31, 2009. NLE 09 will be the first major exercise conducted by the United States government that will focus exclusively on terrorism prevention and protection, as opposed to incident response and recovery.  NLE 09 is designated as a Tier I National Level Exercise. Tier I exercises (formerly known as the Top Officials exercise series or TOPOFF) are conducted annually in accordance with the National Exercise Program (NEP), which serves as the nation’s overarching exercise program for planning, organizing, conducting and evaluating national level exercises. The NEP was established to provide the U.S. government, at all levels, exercise opportunities to prepare for catastrophic crises ranging from terrorism to natural disasters.  http://truthjunkie.wordpress.com/2009/04/20/fema-national-level-exercise-2009-nle-09/ Mmm?  Practice for pandemics like Captain Trips, Swine Flu, Avian Flu, and Ebola too? 

Hope the terrorist don’t choose the end of July for an attack, we’ll be busy- just like we were on 9/11.
