So I still don't think that people would have been involved on the ground.
perhaps you are getting caught up in his 'dead-ending the issue'
Maybe a clearer version of Parkers explaination is in order...
when he says our exercise
was only a few crisis managers
and a support staff of paper pushers and such, numbering 1,000
(which probably generally describes his company too)
He might actually be forthright...in technicalities only.
there seems a disconnect to me, because he goes on to praise
and laud the players that morning
meaning to me that there were many cogs+wheels+cams+gears
that were in a coordinated action that 7 July morning.
(you wouldn't expect a high caliber top executive & spokesperson
to be so redundant as to note his companies managers & staff
who were involved in an imaginary, paper-world, hypothetical terrorist
attack, in one breath.....and an instant later identify the same team as a
cast of players
who really rose to the occasion & 'responded'
heroically.....people in a fictional exercise dont reflex or respond to
outside & real-world events in any fashion, otherwise their mission would be compromised!)
i think he's trying to cloud the issue with disinformation.
i would suggest that Visor Consultants were contracted by the UK
operation Atlantic Blue, to act as overseer of an actual psycho-drama
production which included the TubeAuthorities and the MetroAuthorities
and both their companies,
another company provided the EMTs & 1st responders,
another group provided a cast of survivor victims, on both the bus & tubes,
still another group provided the terrorist patsies,
there were team members(from the Topoff 3 or the Triple Play, Black-Ops) to act as referees and coordinators, to insure the mechanism reached
i had to put forth that model so you could read your points of contention
in a different light...otherwise a point by point by point would exhaust itself
by the sheer volume of explaining viewpoints.
I submit that we are being told half-truths, which my be partially correct
unless one counters with the 'correct' questions. I see the E-Mail Official Response, which we have both referenced, in a way different
that you do.....viva la difference non?
