I found this last night and posted it on a few different sites. I live in CO and have been reporting here and elsewhere for weeks now that there has
been strange activity with military personnel (fighter jets, helicopters, innumerable troop transporters on the roadways) and quite a few DHS black
suvs roaming around I-25 in the Denver Metro area. The thing with this exercise, beyond seeming coincidental w/ who is coming here next week and all
of the aforementioned details regarding congress and other countries' leaders being somewhere else, etc., is that the week before 9/11, news stories
all seemed to center on Denver and Colorado being targets for terrorism. For a week straight, we were told of the possibilities of lone wolf
attackers and the like.
Now, this. Nothing in the news has let people know these exercises will take place tomorrow. Nothing. Nothing on the morning or evening news,
nothing in the Post, nothing on the news channels' sites. So, from 5am - 4:30 pm tomorrow, people will be seeing smoke, hearing loud noises, and be
in the midst of a flurry of military and first responder activities during both rush hours. In the article on the Douglas County website, it
basically said people should not be alarmed if they see these things, that this isn't a terrorist attack, merely an exercise. Well, how about having
this on the news where it can reach people? I stumbled upon the article while doing a search on all of the army medical vehicles parked at the Denver
Fed Center and I live in Douglas County and hadn't even heard of any of this. My point? People will panic if they aren't informed beforehand,
especially after being "warned" not even two weeks ago about the possibility of attacks. With the way Colorado is, you can see miles and miles away
on the road, depending what part of the road you are on (because of hills), so possibly seeing smoke in the direction of DIA and/or to the south by
Park Meadows Mall and Sky Ridge Medical Center (which are right next to the interstate) and/or downtown will upset people who aren't told about this,
seeing stuff in every direction. Now, the article didn't indicate which areas would have the smoke, etc., but still. Such a large-scale exercise
involving 101 agencies and locations will surely be noticeable.
Because there isn't any coverage of this, I contacted 9news.com, kdvr.com, and denverpost.com to let them know that there are drills tomorrow and
they should let people know not to be concerned. I also provided the Douglas County link. I would think they have to know, but why aren't they even
doing a simple report? I guess trivial nonsense about celebrities doesn't allow for one minute of coverage on this. As of now, 17 1/2 hours before
it starts, still not one word or even reply back about the "news tip" I sent them.
