"Sources" say the Atlanta airport power failure Dec 17th may have been "Terrorism" !!

Somebody on the "inside" thinks so.

Citizen Journalist Laura Loomer has a "source" from a "source" !!

Possible I suppose.

Perhaps "authorities" are suppressing some facts and circumstances?


Source: Atlanta Airport Blackout A ‘Suspected Terrorist Attack’

The 11-hour electrical blackout that grounded flights at Atlanta’s Hartsfield-Jackson Airport Sunday could have been a terrorist attack, according to a source.

Terrorists have long aspired to interfere with the electrical grid in the United States.

Investigative journalist and former Project Veritas operative Laura Loomer shared a message from one of her sources, who cited an airport employee to state that it was a “suspected terrorist attack,” though that theory was not definitively confirmed.

While I am usually skeptic about "sources" when it comes to terrorism, this is the same Laura Loomer who was heavily involved reporting about the Las Vegas shooting, and she had pretty good info with good sources on site. I will keep an eye on this developing. Thank you the thread...!

I was thinking some kind of EMP test of some sort. I've been reading a lot of post apocalyptic fiction lately and the first thing that came to mind was some sort of grid attack.

Who knows... probably was fault smoke detector and it brought everything down.

Probably more like an Axe EMP...

They are a lot easier to get a hold of and are just as effective. A wooden handled axe could play hell on a power structure...Especially if you cut the big cable..

And the backup power and emergency lighting?

terrorists or enemy states could knock out power in major cities for weeks or even months by detonating a nuclear weapon miles above the Earth’s atmosphere.



intelligence experts have cautioned that hackers might be able to blow out generators across major regions of the country, leaving chaos in their wake.



one of her sources



according to a source.


I thought OP considered anonymous sources fake news, though?

Anyways, sounds really legit. Doesn't sound made up at all. Definitely real.

That part is interesting. These facilities have UPS systems that rival anyone's. The fact that it did not kick over is something more sinister as even the most advanced setups at the end of the day simply transition from one to the other when the primary fails.

The fact that there was zero power/no transition instantly to the new source of power...this should have the eyebrows raised for everyone.

How do you thing they confined the electromagnetism to just the airport?
Terrorism does sound possible - live wires, generators, and battery backup ALL fail? Not likely

equipment failure.......the end....see how easy and logical that is?

How hard would it be for someone to walk into the mechanical room and spill their coffee on the power control manifold thingymajig?
I picture Homer eating donuts.

With the UPS issue standing out like a wart on a witches nose, obviously, someone signed a non-disclosure agreement?

More then likly the back up power was ok thing is even when back up power at air ports is fine that does not mean every thing is hunky dory they will rerout planes and not let any flight leave until fixed .
back up power is just that back up emergency only .
you dont run a air port normaly off back up power .
as for EMP not a device humans could make that could possibly create a powerful enough on to effect a cell phone from 3 feet away .
as for anything else a Human could do well The damage would be oves take down the Huge power transmission lines would cut power to whole citys and would take minim of hours to repair BUT again something like that you cant miss and would not need to guess .
So wile the gride in that respect can not be protected it would also be oves something was destroyed .

N But being if it was Juust teh air port and non of teh surrounding area then something is up that would imply a main line Juts to the airt was cut ( ovesly someone could have just dug in the wrong spot .
But 11 hours to fix one cut line ?

that's exactly my take on it too...

We have been warned that all sorts of infrastructure to the electric grid is in need of upgrading and EMP hardening...
the maintenance has been neglected far too long..in favor of the doleing out of annual bonuses instead

oh well, the squeaky-wheel gets the grease, but only when the squeak becomes a very unnerving problem to someone who matters...same-old-same-old

Always blame terrorism. The people are in favor of keeping the war ongoing to get those terrorists.

Swing more than once...Most of the time the boxes that switch between the two are pretty close together.

I don't recommend we drop a new set of bombs on some geographical region in retaliation of this should it be an attack.

The equipment failure part is BS. They test these systems for situations like that and for as long as it went on there is no way it was a breaker that blew and no one in maintenance did not have a replacement. Sorry it does not work that way on this level.

Something else happened and we need to remain vigilant regardless on any/all infrastructure.

A source is a source, of course, of course,
And no one can talk to a source’s source
That is, of course, unless the source is the famous Mr. Ed.

Go right to the source, show no remorse
He'll give you the info that you'll endorse.
He's always be such a steady source.
He’s Mister frickin’ Ed.
A source is a source, of course; of course,
they’ll always talk til their voice is hoarse.
You never heard from the source’s source?
It's probably cuz he's dead
