Another nuke exercise -- your next 9/11?

The Department of Defense (DOD) has scheduled its second major, three-day exercise to combat nuclear terrorism, this time in the Charleston, South Caroline area. I don’t know about you, but I didn’t know Charleston had a nuclear terror problem, shades of Sept. 11, 2001, the day on which some six drills were going, enough to distract anybody from doing anything when the drills went real.
But the exercise and the military’s Joint Task Force-Civil Support will be hosted (excuse me again) . . . headquartered at Fort Monroe, Virginia. And the three-day drill (which could go real, n'est-ce pas?) is for commanders and representatives of other federal agencies that would be involved in (catch this) the consequences of a 10-megaton nuclear blast, enough to decimate an American city.
Think I’m kidding. Officials from the Department of Homeland Security, including the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA, remember them from New Orleans?) and senior Coast Guard brass will be on hand. The WorldNetDaily article claims that no part of the exercise will take place there, though the target of attack is Charleston. Maj. Gen. Bruce Davis, the task force’s commander, will oversee the exercise from Fort Monroe. What a blast (I hope not).
Nevertheless, Allison wrote, “A month after the Sept.11, 2001, terrorist attacks, the Central Intelligence Agency presented Bush with a report that al-Qaida had smuggled a 10-kiloton nuclear bomb into New York City."

The president, according to the book, dispatched Nuclear Emergency Support Teams of scientists and engineers to New York to search for the weapon, which was never found. Never found, imagine that. And imagine that I live in New York and never heard a frigging word about that. And maybe some “terrorist” from al-Qaida, shorthand for CIA, took it and put it under the White House, because it has done an amazing job of decimating the agency, and laying blame for 9/11 at its feet.

if i remember correctly,mass

if i remember correctly,mass protests, and leaks to the local media got them to stop the last round of nuke tests in Charleston. lets hope it works again this time.

If I remember correctly

If I remember correctly Webster Tarply also predicted the same. I wonder what his take is on this?

Also, I was just informed that a friend of mine, who's enlisted in the Army, is going to Fort Hood on Sunday, Jan 29th, to participate in a "Containment Exercise". Fort Hood is located about 100 miles northwest of Houston.

don't forget the extension

don't forget the extension to the patriot act ends on Feb 3rd.

is the timing coincidental and was this exercise scheduled before the patriot act was extended?

That's right. Nice timing

thanks culhavoc...very

thanks culhavoc...very helpful list.

Does anyone have any sources, refs for the report given by the CIA after 9/11 alleging al qaeda bringing in a nuclear bomb?
Was it reported in the press in any way? Any clues?
