A Haiti Disaster Relief Scenario Was Envisaged by the US Military One Day Before the Earthquake


www.globalresearch.ca

A Haiti disaster relief scenario had been envisaged at the headquarters of US Southern Command (SOUTHCOM) in Miami one day prior to the earthquake.

Some important excerpt from the article:


The holding of pre-disaster simulations pertained to the impacts of a hurricane in Haiti. They were held on January 11. (Bob Brewin, Defense launches online system to coordinate Haiti relief efforts (1/15/10) -- GovExec.com, complete text of article is contained in Annex)

The Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA), which is under the jurisdiction of the Department of Defense (DoD), was involved in organizing these scenarios on behalf of US Southern Command.(SOUTHCOM).

Defined as a "Combat Support Agency", DISA has a mandate to provide IT and telecommunications, systems, logistics services in support of the US military. (See DISA website: Defense Information Systems Agency).

On the day prior to the earthquake, "on Monday [January 11, 2010], Jean Demay, DISA's technical manager for the agency's Transnational Information Sharing Cooperation project, happened to be at the headquarters of the U.S. Southern Command in Miami preparing for a test of the system in a scenario that involved providing relief to Haiti in the wake of a hurricane." (Bob Brewin, op cit, emphasis added)



Upon completing the tests and disaster scenarios on January 11, TISC was considered to be, in relation to Haiti, in "an advanced stage of readiness". On January 13, the day following the earthquake, SOUTHCOM took the decision to implement the TISC system, which had been rehearsed in Miami two days earlier:

"After the earthquake hit on Tuesday [January 12, 2010], Demay said SOUTHCOM decided to go live with the system. On [the following day] Wednesday [January 13, 2010], DISA opened up its All Partners Access Network, supported by the Transnational Information Sharing Cooperation project, to any organization supporting Haiti relief efforts.

The information sharing project, developed with backing from both SOUTHCOM and the Defense Department's European Command, has been in development for three years. It is designed to facilitate multilateral collaboration between federal and nongovernmental agencies.

Demay said that since DISA set up a Haiti Humanitarian Assistance and Disaster Relief Community of Interest on APAN on Wednesday [the day following the earthquake], almost 500 organizations and individuals have joined, including a range of Defense units and various nongovernmental organizations and relief groups. (Bob Brewin, Defense launches online system to coordinate Haiti relief efforts (1/15/10) -- GovExec.com emphasis added)


So am I getting this straight, a Haiti relief disaster scenario was envisaged by DoD one day prior to the earthquake? And just one day prior Jean Demay, DISA's technical manager for the agency's happened to be at the headquarters of the U.S. Southern Command? Seems like a major case of co-incidence or is it...?

Has this been covered before or has ATS lost all interest in conspiracies? So strange...

i was just talking about this possibility with a friend today.
that perhaps the US government had knowledge the earthquakes was going to happen before it did,or the more extreme theory which is that the military somehow caused this earthquake

Wow.. Truthfully I was pretty sure that this was just a natural incident (although I know HAARP is capable of doing such things).

Now I'm not quite so sure. Thanks.

More than a week after their nursing home collapsed, dozens of elderly Haitians are still begging for food and medicine in a downtown Port-au-Prince slum barely a mile from the international airport where tons of aid are pouring in.

"It's as if everybody has forgotten us, nobody cares," said Phileas Julien, 78, a sometimes delirious blind man in a wheelchair who has appointed himself spokesman for the 84 surviving residents. "Or maybe they really do just want us to starve to death."

The Jan. 12 earthquake killed six residents and two more have since died of hunger and exhaustion. Several more were barely clinging to life Wednesday evening. They struggle to survive in the midst of a squalid camp that was created in the hospice's garden by people who fled the quake's destruction

"We're hungry, we're so, so hungry," lamented 77-year-old Felicie Colin, one of those who still had enough energy to speak intelligibly at sunset Wednesday

What the hell is happening there?

Everyone keeps saying the U.S. is there to help, they took control of the airport and these dying people right next to the airport are elderly and dying.

WHAT THE HELLL?????????????????????????????????

This type of information only adds further speculation as to whether the earthquake was known or caused intentionally by some very nasty individuals.

For example, the same scenarios (contigency role play models) took place on the same days as:

7/7 London Bombings

911 Alleged Terrorist attack on the Twin Towers & Pentagon

The 1995 Oklahoma Bombing[/b



On September 28, 2009, Jesse Trentadue, a Salt Lake City attorney, released security tapes that he obtained from the FBI through the Freedom of Information Act that show the Murrah building before and after the blast from four security cameras. The tapes are blank at points before 9:02 am, the time of detonation. Trentadue said that the government's explanation for the missing footage is that the tape was being replaced at the time.


TPTB will be found out in the end and will be judged for their actions.

It really seems strange inspite of soo many US Soldiers and ships already stationed there people near airports are not receiving aid. Did US military just went there to occupy..after these reports, some disturbing thoughts are coming to mind.

I think the 'breaking news' forum should be for actual news and not reports on obscure websites.

In any case, this is already being discussed here:

Heres a few reason why the US may want to occupy Haiti:

1. Oil reserves
2 Precious metals
3.Keep an eye on Cuba
4.Keep an eye on venezuela
5.Draw the attention away from the US and focus on the poor haitians whilst they pass countless of bills.

Maybe this is all part of the end game plan, to launch a false flag towards Cuba, I have been following Cuba since last year and theres alot going on since the power changed, it looks to me like Europe has plans for Cuba and maybe these nasty individuals are protecting their assets like a chess player when he moves the piece to protect the king.

The senario was for a HURRICANE not an earthquake. Considering that Haiti attracts hurricanes like a magnet attracts iron filings, this isn't suprising. Sometimes sh*t just happens. Everything doesn't have to be part of a conspiracy. Now double check the box, that the aluminum foil you made your hat came out of, to see if it was made in China. It might contain lead, mercury or cadmium.

Lets look at this logically:

Haiti was already being partially run by the UN, and was susceptible to disasters such as earthquakes & hurricanes. Were the US supposed to plan for disasters occurring in more stable countries instead, or were they planning appropriately for likely disasters involving hurricanes?

Also, terrorist attacks were being planned for long before 9/11 and 7/7, yet terrorism did not occur each time govts. updated their disaster relief plans.

Mate don't be so hard the "obscure" website has valid links and is reporting non-biased accurate information.

Did you read the original source for this news in the thread you linked to?

It is hardly an obscure source and definitely not a conspiracy site.

Agreed scenario was of Hurricane, but it was a "disaster relief operation". I would tend too believe both kind of relief operations would be quiet similar. Not too much difference between the scenario after disaster.

Secondly, if it was earthquake would it not make it so blatantly obvious? It would raise many eyebrows at once.
