Can you believe that ?


FedEx staff at Charles de Gaulle Airport in Paris have complained about security drills after finding explosives in a ripped package in transit from the US to Tunisia. After the bombs turned out to be fake, airport personnel were told they were part of US anti-terrorist exercises. A pressure cooker with nuts and bolts was discovered by employees of FedEx, the American courier service, at the airport on January 22, French media reported Thursday... After further inspection, the company staff also found other packages with devices that resembled explosives and detonators...


What is this ? Is this really an exercise ? I just can't believe it. What would be the benefit of such an "exercise" of shipping that kind of 'fake' bomb from the US to Tunisia US embassy ? Or is that false flag exercising ?

It was never supposed to get shipped. The exercise would have been to see if they catch it before it gets on the plane, and they didn't.

You mean they can't protect us? Even with all their powers and intrusions? Hmmmm. Some might even cry for abolition.

It was only a cargo flight. A passenger flight would be one thing, but a cargo flight, not as major.

It's major however you cut it. US intelligence can't stop it's OWN bombs, apparently. Doesn't bode well in current climes, does it?

They weren't supposed to stop it. It was a training exercise for embassy security. Embassy security was supposed to stop it before they were allowed in. There was a breakdown in communications between the security guys holding the exercise, and FedEx that didn't tell them that the packages were on the aircraft.

Ah, delivering the 'bomb' was all part of the plan. Gotcha'.

Well, good on FedEx then, I suppose. They stopped the terrorists.

Good news bad news.

Bad news is the exercise never got to take place.
Good news is fed-Ex employees were sharp.
