Important person in relation to COG

The policy designates the president's top adviser for homeland security and counterterrorism -- currently Frances Townsend -- as the national continuity director. link

The current adviser for homeland security is Kenneth Wainstein. Fran Townsend announced her resignation in November. AFAIK, she remained in the job until January and then Joel Bagnal filled in until Wainstein was appointed. article about Wainstein's appointment

JFK on secrecy and the press

Fantastic GW

Centralizing content and addressing these issues all in one place is the type of logic, reason, and initiative I honor and long for in our government. Please run for some office so we could vote some sense in Washington DC.

Wisdom of Machiavelli

Machiavelli wrote in the Discourses of Livy on how to quietly usurp the control of a republic - or any form really - keep the illusion of the old government while ushering in the form you really want:

He said:

He who desires or attempts to reform the government of a state, and wishes to have it accepted and capable of maintaining itself to the satisfaction of everybody, must at least retain the semblance of the old forms; so that it may seem to the people that there has been no change in the institutions, even though in fact they are entirely different from the old ones.

GW, have you seen this development?

I just came across a small article at that seems to be news?

"Congress Quietly Repeals Martial Law Provision"

In brief, it states a repeal of the revisions of the Posse Comitatus and Insurrection Acts was signed on January 28,2008? I thought I'd bring it to your attention?

...don't believe them!

COG exercise next week?

FEMA has an exercise next week that includes COG:

National Level Exercise 2-08 (NLE 2-08).

The Department of Homeland Security's National Exercise Program (NEP), the nation's overarching homeland security exercise program, will conduct a combined exercise in May 2008 that will test hurricane preparedness planning, assess federal interagency Continuity of Operations (COOP) procedures, exercise a response to terrorist attacks in Washington State and test Defense Support of Civil Authorities (DSCA). These linked exercises are referred to as National Level Exercise 2-08 (NLE 2-08).

The exercise takes place May 1-8 with a wide range of participants from federal and state departments and agencies.

NLE 2-08 will consolidate into a single exercise the following:

Federal Emergency Management Agency's (FEMA) National Continuity Programs' (NCP) Eagle Horizon 2008;
U.S. Northern Command's (USNORTHCOM) Ardent Sentry 08 exercise;
FEMA's Disaster Operation's Hurricane Preparedness Exercise (HPE);
The Chemical Stockpile Emergency Preparedness Program and Army Service Response Force tests for emergency plans, procedures, skills and equipment in response to an accidental chemical agent release.
The overall exercise scenario unfolds as a Category 4 hurricane threatens the National Capitol Region (NCR) while events in the Pacific Northwest include terrorist attacks involving weapons of mass destruction (WMD) in the state of Washington and an accidental release of a chemical agent at chemical stockpile facility in Umatilla, Oregon. The scenario culminates with the hurricane's imminent landfall combined with a credible terror threat to the NCR which causes the federal government to invoke continuity plans and capabilities.

Planning for NLE 2-08 began in late spring 2007 and is designed to achieve the following objectives:

Exercise and evaluate federal government continuity capabilities and management of emergencies from dispersed locations.
Exercise our response to terrorist WMDs threat and attack capabilities with integration of Defense Support of Civil Authorities; and
Exercise hurricane preparedness and response capabilities.
