Seven Days in May

USN&WR Interview Exposes Plan to Use "Exercises" by U.S. and USSR to Conceal Nuclear Strike During Cold War

The 10/15/07 issue of U.S. News and World Report features a Q&A interview by Alex Kingsbury with Richard Rhodes, author of [The Making of the Atomic Bomb], [Dark Sun] and [Arsenals of Folly; The Making of the Nuclear Arms Race]. The piece appears on page 26 and in it, Rhodes states, "We now know the United States and the Soviets planned to use "exercises" to conceal a nuclear first strike." This unusual admission in a main stream media forum is consistent with what is known about the presentation of 7/7 and 9/11 which were both embedded in drills, and it may foretell the future in how the next national emergency will play out. This deception and cover technique was so well known by 1963 that it was featured as the plot of the John Frankenheimer film [Seven Days in May] in which a military exercise is used to provide cover for a military coup against the President of the United States.
