I was heading in towards Mclean Va. this afternoon and suddenly noticed Fairfax County Police stationed
at every single intersection on Lewinsville Road and along Rt. 123 Dolly Madison Blvd and the ramp to I-66
There were also police on the beltway overpasses and up in the sky in a chopper.
I couldn't help but notice numerous extra vehicles parked in the entrance road to what was previously PRC Drive.
That road is now called Tyson Mclean Drive,
the highly secure entry road to the new National Counterterrorism Center aka NCTC located at
1500 Tyson Mclean Drive
Funnily enough, The Fairfax County Police Mclean Substation is diagonally across the street and I was working just down the street for the next half
an hour or so.
You could hear the chopper circling in the distance, but I kept on working.
completing orders just down the road off Route 123 near the Capitol One Building.
My next order was at the intersection of Anderson Road@ 123 across from the ramp for I-66.
As I approached the intersection, the police brought all traffic to a complete stop.
The chopper now sounds a bit more like an aggressive hornet and then at the top of the hill from Lewinsville Rd @ 123, you see the motorcade....
A pair of flag flapping black limos, countless black SUV's , one with the tailgate open, an armored HEAVY police vehicle, more SUV's and a few
special police cars, all lead by the
Fairfax County Police Motorcycle escort.
Since the thought of prison is rather unappealing to me, I managed to refrain from making any controversial bodily gestures
