If you're like me, any time the powers that be announce that they're going to hold a drill, watch out, for that's how the bulk of covert operations, including terrorism, have been conducted in the past...oh, say thirty to forty years. The technique is simple: simply penetrate the drill with your own operatives, piggyback a real operation on a "drill," and as the drill is conducted, let the real operation "go live," and in the confusion, accomplish your objectives. 9-11 was, of course, the pre-eminent example of this tactic, and thus, the context argues for "inside job," for that is what a live piggybacked operation-on-a-drill always is. We saw evidence of a "drill" in Boston that went live; there are even lingering indications, for those that studied the matter, that a similar operation was in effect in the Oklahoma City bombing.

On and on we could go.

So in that spirit, an alert to all our friends in the New York City metro area, especially those of you riding the subways and trains:

NYPD will deploy 'harmless' gas into subway in terror response drill

Hope you caught that but in case you didn't, here is is again:

"The New York City Police Department announced Wednesday that it will deploy, then track, what it calls “harmless” gases into the city’s subway system over three non-consecutive days this summer.

"The plan, to be enacted in July, will investigate New York’s readiness to handle a chemical terrorist attack by dispersing the colorless gas and tracing it as it flows through the city, according to Scientific American. The test is expected to cost $3.4 million and is scheduled to be carried out in all five boroughs and dozens of stations on 21 of the city's 34 subway lines.

“'The NYPD works for the best but plans for the worst when it comes to potentially catastrophic attacks such as ones employing radiological contaminants or weaponized anthrax,' police commissioner Ray Kelly said in a statement.

"The police will use roughly 200 detectors to monitor the gas. Dubbed the Subway-Surface Air Flow Exchange, the test will be the largest of its kind and organized in cooperation with the energy department’s Brookhaven National Laboratory. They’ll use perfluorocarbon tracer gases (PFTs), which are frequently used to measure potential sites for underground construction."

Many years ago you will recall a similar incident - a real one - that occurred in the Tokyo subways when the Aum Shinrikyo cult released deadly Sarin gas into the trains, killing many innocent people, and with the now well-known tactic of piggybacking real operations on drills, it's best to be safe, not sorry.

There's another question here, that isn't being asked, but it should be: Do you, the average American living in a city scheduled for one of these "drills", feel safer? do you feel like your government is doing an adequate job "protecting" you? Or do you, like me, feel that the whole "war on terror" is a colossal failure precisely because it has led to the erosion of our constitutional liberties? that the cameras, dogs, drills, snipers, and de facto martial law we saw on chilling parade in Boston, was completely ineffectual from preventing the tragedy? If the latter, then you're waking up, for terrorism is always, and ultimately, the policy of some elite, masked behind a government, trying to increase its power over the people it governs, through massive expansion of the state. An interesting poll, one you'll never see CNoNews, SeeBS, or Faux News doing, and if they do, there won't be the slightest pretense at real understanding of the phenomenon, much less sympathy, is this: do you, the average American, feel more threatened by terrorists? or by your own government?

Let's go door to door in Boston, blot out the faces and modulate the voices, and ask that question...

A final thought: interesting, isn't it, that it is RT that is reporting this story....

See you on the flip side.

    Speaking of drills going ‘live’, I wouldn’t want to be in Montana esp. near Malmstrom AFB tomorrow … Nuclear incident drills are planned,* involving the military, civilians, FBI, DOE, Homeland [in]Security and FEMA. Hmmm … Malmstrom AFB was the scene of a major UFO incident in 1967 when nuclear Minuteman missiles malfunctioned in their silos after a large, round object hovered over the base. Now, UFOs have been reported near the base as recently as September of 2012.** Is it time to introduce the next level of threat in von Braun’s enemy list: ETs? Seems a bit soon after Boston, but the schedule of critical events may have been accelerated ….

      I wouldn’t even want to be flying over Malmstrom AFB, or Montana tomorrow.

      Anytime there’s a drill; get real, & get out.

      These guys are crazy, it’s their bread & butter signature(one reason: if they’re bluffing; nobody’s calling them on it!).

    if one is still interested in this posting do read the comments to the linked article-
    people are waking up (well, SOME…)

    I wonder if this did go live would the gas later be traced to a certain regime in Syria. Then we would have a new excuse for war. 9/11 & 7/7 over again.

    Thanks for throwing down such an eloquent gauntlet.

    I haven’t believe the American press since Vietnam and Daley Plaza. As for history the text books were a pack of lies that i had to use the library to get the truth. May I bring up a incident from France 1954 in a small village called Pont-Saint-Esprit a bad fatal for 4 LSD trip. Blamed on the local baker selling Egret tainted bread. Unfortunately it was the real LSD brought by the CIA for one of their so called experiments. So it’s no surprise we have to go to foreign press sites for what’s really happening in our country.

    • MQ on May 3, 2013 at 11:16 am

      I think you mean ergot poisoning (from wheat rust fungus). Tho getting an egret bone stuck in your throat probably would be fatal too 🙂

      I didn’t know that there were “drills” going on in Tokyo when the sarin gas incident occurred. I remember hearing warnings for false flag when there were earthquake drills in the New Madrid area last year. At least we didn’t end up with some massive quake to set forth martial law in the heartland. That may be the plan— have most drills go off OK, but some where “lone gunmen” cause chaos.

    Their preference is to switch the operation – to “live”. But, if not, then plant the wherewithal tools/supplies for the needed operation; then when the planets/politics align themselves – “they’ll strike while the iron’s hot.

    As Bugs Bunny would say/This means war.

    Of course, in reality, this has been going(in one form or another), on since Christ was a corporal.

    “Do you, the average American living in a city scheduled for one of these “drills”, feel safer? do you feel like your government is doing an adequate job “protecting” you?”

    For the billion$$ of taxpayer dollar$$ wasted on ‘keeping Americans safe’ recent Washington Post and Faux News polls show that Americans are more afraid of their own government’s tyranny than terrorists. Finally, the sheeple seem to be rousing from their fear-induced paralysis.

    Putting it in perspective, you’re more likely to be killed by a ‘law enforcement agent’, prescription drugs and more mundane things … [ but don’t volunteer to participate in a drill 😉 ]

    This was out like last week. Though I guess that’s when the RT story went up too.

    • bdw000 on May 2, 2013 at 5:46 pm

      JPF is on record as saying he types up these blogs about two weeks in advance most of the time (and just releases them one per day).

      • Yaj on May 3, 2013 at 5:01 am

        Fine, but the implication is that publications like the NYTimes didn’t mention this “drill” or is it simply a test? And it did get mainstream US press attention 10 days ago or so.

  10. chris on May 2, 2013 at 5:43 am

    you should do a facebook poll joseph- but sadly its not accurate because we know all of your readers generally speaking are more of your persuasion re: the government. hmmmm someone should do that poll though!
