MAYDAY ALERT! -- Terror Drills Could Go Live!

This could be totally bogus. And then, it could be real.
I tend to think the former. But if spreading this via email could cause the
cancellation of the plans for a new 9/11, it's worthwhile.

MAYDAY ALERT! -- Terror Drills Could Go Live!




By Dr. James H. Fetzer
Major William B. Fox
Captain Eric H. May
SFC Donald Buswell

The name "false flag" comes from the old pirate's ruse of flying another
country's flag during an attack, thereby shifting blame for the attack to a
party that had nothing to do with it. Governments use false flag attacks to
push their nations into dictatorship or war. As military experts, we fear
that national terror drills, scheduled for May 1-8, could be used to
camouflage a false flag attack in the United States.




Strategic Signals




Yesterday an American-flagged ship fired on the Iranian Navy, and now
Pentagon sources say that they have been ordered to prepare attack plans.
Admiral "Fox" Fallon, the Centcom commander who opposed war with Iran, has
been ousted in favor of Bush loyalist General David Petraeus, who has spent
the last month accusing Iran for our increasing problems with the Iraqi
resistance.

Saudi Arabia has been preparing for nuclear fallout from an attack on Iran
since last month, when Dick Cheney paid a visit. Israel has just finished
its largest-ever domestic war drills. Israel and the Bush administration
are insisting that Syria and North Korea are nuclear collaborators. Syria
is preparing for the contingency of an Israeli attack. Iran is preparing
for the contingency of a US attack. US government insiders speculate that
Bush has promised Israel an expanded Middle East war before he leaves
office.

The Neo-Cons are pounding their war drums again, according to Dr. James H.
Fetzer, the founder of Scholars for 9/11 Truth, and he believes that nothing
would help them spread their imperial war in the Middle East as much as
another 9/11.

He has just published "9/11 and the Neo-Con Agenda."

-11_Anomalies/Dr._James_H._Fetzer_2008-04-22_9-11_and_the_Neo-Con_Agenda.htm
l The article is a must-read introduction for anyone wanting to understand
the origins and aims of the " global war on terror."




Domestic Discord




Inside the US, Bush approval ratings are well below 30%, and approval
ratings for the U.S. Congress and mainstream media are even lower. Over
three quarters of the American people believe that the country is on the
wrong track, and just as many want to end the quicksand war in the Middle
East. The economy is crashing as fuel prices are skyrocketing. The
Establishment is losing its grip on power. It would take another 9/11 to
make the nation forget its domestic woes and resume its lost zeal for the
Neo-Con "new American century" of foreign wars and a domestic police state.

In his much-discussed February article, "False Flag Prospects, 2008,"
 http://www.thepriceofliberty.org/08/02/25/may.htm Captain Eric H. May
documented the disturbing fact that military and police exercises were
occurring at the same time as the 9/11 US attacks in 2001 and the 7/7 UK
bombings in 2005. In that prescient article, he designated the Pacific
Northwest as one of the top three target zones for the next US false flag
attack, and the Pacific Northwest will be the target of terror drills May
1-8.

Should a major event occur during the drills, the Bush administration is
prepared to implement National Security Presidential Directive (NSPD) 51,
which establishes dictatorship "in the event of a man-made or natural
catastrophe." It is an extraordinary measure, and the White House has
stonewalled Homeland Security Committee members from the House of
Representatives who wanted to read it. One of those members, Oregon's Peter
DeFazio summed up the feeling of many Americans about NSPD 51 when he said
"Maybe the people who think there's a conspiracy out there are right."

Fears that a false flag attack might result in martial law are nourished by
last week's militaristic Operation Sudden Impact, reported by Infowars.net
writer Steve Watson: "Three States Subjected to Martial Law Sweeps"
 http://www.infowars.net/articles/april2008/180408impact.htm




National Level Exercise 8-02




NLE 2-08 will involve the very highest levels of Homeland Security and the
US Northern Command. Both "Homesec" and "Northcom" were established by the
Bush administration in the wake of 9/11 to take control of the nation in the
event of another terrorist attack. They will be joined by FEMA in the May
1-8 exercise, which is one of the two largest terror drills scheduled this
year.

On Thursday, May 1, the exercise begins in Washington, when an explosion
collapses the Alaska Way viaduct in downtown Seattle and damages surrounding
buildings. Twenty minutes later, terrorists explode a highjacked tanker ship
filled with highly toxic chemicals at the Seattle Ferry Terminal. Deadly
gas soon permeates downtown Seattle.

Emergency responders come in waves. Police and firemen, first to arrive,
are quickly overwhelmed. The state deploys its 22-member Civil Support
Team, a National Guard unit, to assess the damage and coordinate support.
Later, 100 soldiers from a chemical battalion based in Yakima arrive to
rescue, decontaminate and treat survivors. Finally, 5,000 troops arrived to
handle logistics and security.

On Monday, May 5, the scenario shifts to Oregon where VX, the most toxic
nerve agent ever synthesized, erupts from the Umatilla Army Depot.

The next day, terrorists blow up a chemical tanker in Ferndale, Washington.
The county sheriff requests national support, and a Marine Corps chemical
warfare detachment from Ft. Lewis, Washington responds.

According to sources at Northcom, NLE 2-08 will involve "robust play," with
"surprise injects" of unanticipated events in which participants are
"stretched to the limit" and have "everything thrown at them except the
kitchen sink." All of this makes it easier for the exercise to "go live" by
having a real catastrophe occur.

As the Pacific Northwest scenario is playing out, Washington, DC will be
simulating a catastrophic hurricane as part of the same exercise. It
wouldn't be much of a stretch to suggest that this puts Dick Cheney back in
the bunker he occupied during 9/11.

Citizens interested in understanding how local, state and national levels of
the military can be manipulated into working against us should read "The
Real Drill" by Major William B. Fox, about Portland area terror drills last
year.  http://www.lonestaricon.com/absolutenm/anmviewer.asp?a=2006&z=186

Mission of Conscience




Many American citizens are deeply concerned about police militarization, and
about government and media preconditioning of our nation for future terror
attacks and martial law. We recommend that they monitor NLE 2-08 closely.
Armed with cell phones, cameras and the Internet, they are the single
greatest deterrent against false flag terror.

If we, the co-authors of this alert, are in error about anything, then we
invite reasonable officials to investigate us and our assertions at the very
highest levels. In the past we have too often met with hostility, evasion
or deception by officials involved in terror drills. We have been
stonewalled when we have requested access to an extended schedule of
unclassified military and police terror drills.

We believe that there is a pattern of official retaliation against patriotic
service members who ask questions about 9/11 and false flags.

In 2006, Sergeant First Class Donald Buswell, an Army military intelligence
NCO, suggested that 9/11 might have been a false flag operation. Within a
month the decorated 40-year-old Iraq war veteran suffered a freak pulmonary
embolism, which nearly killed him. After he was released from the hospital,
his command accused him of disloyalty for his remarks, and subjected him to
an extensive military investigation. Ultimately, he was fully exonerated,
and the now-retired Buswell has become widely known on the Internet as the
"9/11 NCO." Stephen Webster, writing for The Lone Star Iconoclast, gained
national attention with his story about Buswell, "Under Fire! U.S. Army
Intelligence Analyst Targeted for Suggesting New Independent 9/11
Investigation."

The duty to keep the government honest isn't optional for those of us who
have taken an oath to defend the Constitution against all enemies, foreign
and domestic. It has always been difficult, and even dangerous, to serve
the American people. We call on all active-duty soldiers, police and first
responders to obey their oaths by asking questions that need to be asked,
and by thinking twice before blindly carrying out orders that may result in
an a false flag attack against their country. We urge leaders of those
soldiers, police and first responders to explain that diligence is not
disloyalty, and that no one ceases to be a free American citizen by putting
on a uniform.

The sky is falling. No? Wait for it. Seriously.

Ok, when I said it was falling last time, and was wrong, just forget that. It's going to happen this time. I know because I'm a "former Army military intelligence and public affairs officer".

And if I predict it's going to fall, and it doesn't, well, that's just because I caused a stir and "they" didn't want to be found out.

You'll all thank me later. In the meantime, continue to live in fear.
