I agree with you that as unprepared as our government has been for disaster, a little practice isn't gonna hurt them. I live in Ohio and this is the first I've even heard of it. Did a little search and found this:
The exercise was multi-state, multi-county, multi-federal government agencies working together and preparing. This is how we practice and prepare. Some of the targets include industrial plants, pipelines, surface or road assets, including inspections along I-77, which were done in conjunction with the Ohio State Highway Patrol,"
"We will take lessons learned and look at procedures, work with our partners and improve procedures so in the event of a real incident, we profit from these scenarios,"

And National Guard will put a gun on your head and will say : "it's for security".
And people will be assignated in camps : "it's for security people".
Military will walk in front of you home : "It's for security people".

It is not exactly the military we will have to worry about, sure there may be isolated cases of the military abusing the citizens. But, the real crimes will be done by our one and only local law enforcement or other federal agencies, it will not be the military causing the biggest problems. I still say if anything happens, it will be our military coming to the aid of the citizens.
