Hoping that 81 different agencies would keep their mouths shut. That is way too many people to trust to not say anything.

Being that you live by the DIA, have you ever heard strange noises? Maybe felt the ground rumbling? Seen anything unusual at all?
I'm sure i'm not the only person that would be interested to hear about anything you've experienced.

I have enough common sense to know if I looked up I would see a killer asteroid headed my way.

Emergency exercise. Of course there's no way it could be an...exercise.
I am a HAM radio operator. I live in a major city. Each year we have a city wide emergency preparedness drill. Ours is in October. It really could be just a drill/exercise. HAM radio operators often participate in these types of events.

This is a standard exercise. When I was in the Marine Corps, I participated in a number of these around the Los Angeles area. One time we completely shut down the Burbank Airport to conduct a simulated terrorist chemical attack. This was back in mid 90's. So I would not worry to much about this or read to much into it.
RIMPAC 2000 was the 17th in a series of Pacific naval exercises conducted periodically since 1971. RIMPAC 2000 was the largest maritime exercise in the world. This international exercise took place in the waters off Hawaii from May 30 - July 6, 2000. RIMPAC 2000 brought together the maritime forces of Australia, Canada, Chile, Japan, the Republic of Korea, the United Kingdom and the United States of America for training operations. In 2000, the ROK Navy participated in this exercise for the 6th time since its inception in 1990. More than 50 ships, 200 aircraft and 22,000 Sailors, Airmen, Marines, Soldiers and Coast Guardsmen were involved in this regularly-scheduled exercise. This year's exercise involved a wide variety of land- and carrier-based aircraft, amphibious and ground forces, surface combat, support and amphibious ships and submarines.

Understood but just pointing out that this is clearly more than just your typical emergency exercise running at the fairgrounds with local EMS and Fire.
I am putting it out here as odd, because of the timing and current state of speculation. I have tried to remain level headed through it all but this has definitely piqued my interest. I hope this is just an exercise with no secret intentions. I just think everyone should be aware and on guard...in case.
I would rather be wrong and prepared than be right and surprised!
