Just a reminder.
This incident took place a stones throw from a Naval weapons testing facitility. Training and lives weapons fire occur here all the time.
Yep, ships fire their guns here. I was a NGFS RT talker.
This is really a non issue folks.

Majority of the posters on this thread seems to agree (did hell just freeze over ) that the government may be a little slow but even they wouldn't schedule an exercise on a day like this and with the prez driving over a bridge right nearby. Seems something a little more sinister and reeks of another "exercise" going on 9/11 eight years ago except this event was cut short.
My guess is that something was supposed to happen today that involved BHO meeting his maker. Something came up that prevented the plan from being executed (timing off, not in place, etc.) and the CYA plan was a CG training exercised. They missed their mark, back to the drawing board.

thats simply all nothing more then a lie, if you didnt care, you wouldnt be here to post
on top of that, you say you watched the same thing all the rest of us did, so obviously nothing happened
well bud we all saw the same thing 8 years ago and we still dont know what happened, so to think we know exactly what happened this morning all because some source showed you some video footage is plain arrogance and nothing more
you might as well dress up as a red pitcher of liquid and crash through walls with that kind of thinking, that statement shows more then just drinking the kool aid, you are the kool aid
I don't care or even think today's date is at all relevant to the event. I do care in terms of people who use 9/11 as justification for other things, including hyping up an event such as what happened today based on it.

Honestly, think about it thoe,
It could just be legit, in a training op, you normaly are limited to how real a situation can be portrayed. But when the prez, or likewise does a event like this, you could have a very good moment to conduct a life like training op.
I think its just poor time management, and poor Communication skills.....

Can someone explain why they would do a training exercise on 9/11?
It seems highly suspect.

Definitely strange occurances today. I can't wait to see the spins.
In a Coast Guard radio transmission audible over police scanners monitored by CNN
In a Coast Guard radio transmission audible over police scanners monitored by CNN, a voice could be heard saying, "You're approaching a Coast Guard security zone. ... If you don't stop your vessel, you will be fired upon. Stop your vessel immediately."
Later, someone could be heard saying "bang, bang, bang, bang" and "we have expended 10 rounds."
CNN called the Coast Guard immediately after the initial reports suggesting possible trouble in the water; a spokeswoman said she had no information about activity in that area.
Minutes later, CNN again contacted the Coast Guard and was told officials were looking into the possibility that it may have been a training exercise.

Don't you all think it's a little odd that they decided to pull an outrageous training maneuver on 9/11, on the Potomac, in Washington? While Buck Ofama is up the stream? I say it was for real and they screwed something up and don't want to admit it. Not that it was a terrorist act, but some goofus riding his boat in the Potomac and "bam" they shot him. For all we know whoever was in the boat could be dead.
