Bunker Time: Federal gov. to conduct large scale anti-terror drill

"Shadow Government" in the Case of a "Second 9/11": Back to the Bunker:
Federal government to conduct large scale anti-terror drill

by William M Arkin

June 10, 2006
Washington Post - 2006-06-04

[Global Research Editor's Note: William Arkin reports in the Washington Post on the largest anti-terror drill yet to be conducted in the context of the "Continuity in Government" procedures. The drill is intended to prepare the country for "a Second 9/11". If a second 9/11 were to occur, civilian government would in all likelihood be suspended and martial law would be established.]

On Monday, June 19, about 4,000 government workers representing more than 50 federal agencies from the State Department to the Commodity Futures Trading Commission will say goodbye to their families and set off for dozens of classified emergency facilities stretching from the Maryland and Virginia suburbs to the foothills of the Alleghenies. They will take to the bunkers in an "evacuation" that my sources describe as the largest "continuity of government" exercise ever conducted, a drill intended to prepare the U.S. government for an event even more catastrophic than the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks.

Insightful commentary by Paul Joseph Watson on the connection between the end of Al-Zarqawi and future staged terror attacks:

Pentagon Jettisons US Agent Provocateur Al-Zarqawi
by Paul Joseph Watson

The end of Al-Zarqawi should be a concern for all westerners because it can be added to the pile of evidence to suggest the men behind the curtain are creating a storyboard on which to later pin a staged terror attack blamed on Al-Qaeda and carried out supposedly in revenge for the elimination of Al-Zarqawi. This development also increases that likelihood that the (also deceased) CIA pawn Osama bin Laden will be rolled out before the mid-term elections as the ever prevalent October surprise.

BUSHWHACK ALERT: 6/19 Bunker Drills = Another 911?
by Captain Eric May, Ghost Troop

Should we worry about another 911 on 6/19?

Even the mainstream Washington Post is sending signals that it's time for us all to worry about White House intentions nowadays. In his June 4 WashPost op-ed, Back to the Bunker,, William M. Arkin states "the exercise is the latest manifestation of an obsession with government survival that has been a hallmark of the Bush administration since 9/11."

The bunker drill (or "command post exercise") is indeed a great way to prepare for an attack from abroad -- or to prepare yourself against public or military reaction if you do something provocative. Something, let's say, like another 911. Let's not forget that a similar bunker drill, Vigilant Guardian, was in progress when 911 happened, and that it's this drill that accounts for the famous ability of Cheney to run things from underground.

To put it simply, the Bush administration is putting up its dukes and assuming a worst-case attitude. This is exactly the kind of thing that US officials -- Congressional and military -- were guarding against the last time we had a president in the kind of dire straits this one finds himself it.

The last president, incidentally, was Richard Nixon.

Motives for mayhem

Indeed, Bush's problems are much greater than Nixon's, with Congress making rumblings about exercising its constitutional function of oversight. Worse yet, poll numbers show that he personally only enjoys the support of one-third of the American People, and that a political judgment day may be coming for the Republican Reich in November. Half the country now wants a new investigation of the 911 Event, and the 911 research community, far from fading into the sunset of "conspiracy theory," as predicted (and hoped) by the corporate media, is mushrooming in numbers and conviction. Internet flicks like Loose Change are the new samizdat, or "self-published" declarations of an emerging American glasnost. A "velvet revolution" of an awakened, aware America haunts the dreams of the Bush League.

Ergo, it's time for another terror event.

Planning the plot

The set up is straightforward enough:

June 4: the Bush folks get enough collaboration out of Canada to puff up an "Al Qaeda/Canada" connection, which introduces Oklahoma City fertilizer bombs, Arab youth, the Internet and US helpers into the public mind. Media pundits from Wolf Blitzer to Chris Mathews begin to let on that this represents a new type of Al Qaeda, which Blitzer even labels "Al Qaeda 2.0." This new Al Qaeda is trying to set up smaller, "homegrown" terror acts that will be like Oklahoma City.

June 6: the Bush folks are interpreting the Canadian affair as an indication that a US terror incident is looming, and the FBI and CBS collaborate on a story: Another Terrorist Attack Coming Soon?,

June 7: the Bush folks drop in a couple of bombs to obliterate a "safe house" where arch-villain Al-Zarqawi is in hiding. Again, even the WashPost has been telling the truth about Zarqawi, labeling him what he is -- a government propaganda ploy -- in an April story by Thomas E. Ricks: Military plays up role of Zarqawi, Apparently, though, the Pentagon pawn has a last service in him -- as a dead martyr to be avenged. Wolf Blitzer makes sure to point out that it was Zarqawi who was leading the way to a decentralized, homegrown Al Qaeda, so it's no stretch to infer that an Oklahoma City terror attack would be from his followers, in his name.

King George & Generals (w/ camp followers)

Above are three days in a psyops set up that's Rovean in all its details, and corroborated by the mainstream media -- who have become specialists in "don't ask/don't tell" journalism. Their job as media folks is to eat it up, and spit it out for the public to consume. It's all a bit embarrassing, but what did they expect when they allowed themselves to be called "embedded," dignified usage?

They do a bit of agonizing over the obvious forensic problems of two 500-lb. bombs leaving a man in the next room alive and (barely) breathing, and wonder aloud whether perhaps the photos have been doctored -- but they don't dare to ask whether the entire story has been manufactured.

So now we near another set of government empowerment drills, by a leader who is meeting in his hideaway of Camp David now to decide the future of the Middle Eastern War, his great drive against the East. He has never said a word about retreat, and he likely won't do so now. When the generals summoned to attendance question the will of the American People, or the resiliency of the American GI, he'll reassure them that the scenario can change quickly in the Global War on Terror, and that maybe -- just maybe -- something will energize the USA like another 911, real soon. If that happens, he chuckles, it may be possible to do everything on the White House wish list, from initiating a nuclear war with Iran to initiating a draft in Iowa.

With a wink at Rove he'll get up, ready to let his Bush League associates (Cheney foremost) handle the "arrangements," with everything being understood and nothing being said in the open.

With a confident wave of his hands Bush will commend his military to the civilian leaders who controlled it on 9/11 -- and in farewell he'll comment that he has to get ready for the June 19 bunker drills, in which they'll be practicing how to stay in power and in control if there's another 911. Officers there will remember that he seemed to be in particularly good spirits as he said this, and that he smiled knowingly.

Their work a month ago in exposing secret Chicago 911 terror exercises has been widely published by the Irish 9/11 Truth Movement, For more, refer to their Home Page,

Who was Abu Musab al Zarqawi?
by Michel Chossudovsky

Intelligence Asset

The evidence suggests, however, that Zarqawi was part of a Pentagon disinformation campaign launched in 2003, which was initially intended to justify the US led invasion of Iraq. This central role of Zarqawi as an instrument of war propaganda was recently confirmed by leaked military documents revealed by the Washington Post. The Pentagon had set up a "Zarqawi program". Military documents confirm that the role of Zarqawi had been deliberately "magnified" with a view to galvanizing public support for the US-UK led "war on terrorism".
