Default 'operation dark winter' Virus war game 2001

eerily similar to what's happening now.

'operation dark winter'2001
"On June 22-23, 2001, just under 3 months before 9/11, the U.S. military held a senior-level war game at Andrews Air Force Base called Dark Winter. The scenario of this bio-terrorism drill was designed to simulate a smallpox attack in three states in which one of these states would be Pennsylvania. As a part of this war game, scripted TV news clips were made to help make this drill as realistic as possible."

the fake news clips they created are soft version of today's news.

Are you insinuating this is more than coincidence?...

No, I don't think so.
But it does go to show that there was no need for the country to be so unprepared for this.

(however.... i wouldn't put it pass certain parts of gov't to do something like this on purpose. I don't see any evidence that that's the what happen here.)

I'm not saying it is, but I wouldn't be wholly surprised if certain groups felt the 'collateral damage' was worth bringing the masses under the benevolent thumb of the government.

Just a rambling thought.
