Terror Drills In New Jersey: Another Police State Showcase
CBS SNIP: With busses overturned, emergency workers in full hazardous-material protective suiting and reporters swarming the scene of a supposed chemical explosion, it could have made a fine TV drama on biological weapons. Or a terrorist attack.
But as hospitals clog with people displaying flu symptoms, staff can breathe a sign of relief: this is only a test.
The biggest anti-terrorism drill ever held in the United States got under way Monday with a mock biological attack in New Jersey and a simulated chemical-weapons explosion in Connecticut.
Named TOPOFF 3, the $16 million, weeklong exercise is meant to find weak spots in the nation's emergency planning.
Getting you used to seeing the nice men in bio-suits and their friendly quarantine procedures.
They've been hyping the same scenarios via TV docu-dramas for years.
When the terrorists strike, this is how you submit. This is how you find your nearest concentration camp....erm...I mean 'rest and relocation center.'
Remember, the biggest suspects in the anthrax attack were the government itself. Bush and the White House were on cipro before the first anthrax letter was sent and Fort Detrick bio-weapons lab did test-runs on how to send weaponized anthrax through the mail before 9/11.
