Is The Capitol Building Next, Or Do The Tunnels Go Deeper?
Signs of the Times
In light of the 'insider' fingerprints left all over the 9/11 attacks, a few recent stories made us sit up and take notice.
On Monday, the U.S. Capitol building (seat of the great American Democracy inaction) experienced a 'power out' that caused an evacuation for about an hour. Strangely enough, a spokeswoman for Potomac Electric Power Co., said the electricity shut off automatically after there was "a momentary drop in voltage due to customer operations up the lines" away from the Capitol.
"The protective equipment sensed the significant change in voltage and tripped," she said.
U.S. Capitol police however said a power spike that affected much of the metropolitan area "knocked out power to the Capitol building and caused lights and cable TV reception to flicker throughout the Capitol complex." In response, police evacuated the building and investigated, along with architect of the Capitol and fire officials.
Normally, this apparently innocuous event would not be interesting, except for the fact that, on the weekend prior to the 9/11 attacks, power to the WTC complex was also shut off, allowing, as is now expected, the conspirators to enter the complex and 'prep' the buildings for the very obvious demolition that occured just a few days later.
Added to that, we have the following very interesting story from "The Hill", a newspaper "for and about the U.S. Congress":
Some officers are trained to patrol tunnels, police say
A select group of U.S. Capitol Police have undergone special training to access the miles of utility tunnels underneath the Capitol complex, according to a police spokeswoman.
