This is very interesting to me, for several reasons. I lived in Chicago all of my life before moving west in the mid-2000s and for NATO to be held at
McCormick place is very interesting. That place is HUGE. I used to work there from time to time for conventions, doing booth work. There are
several entrances and exits there, all glass in many spots, just seems not very secure for this type of thing, considering how worried they are about
riots, etc. and the ease of access from the surrounding hotels.
If the G-8 or G-20 or whatever was moved to camp david for the same worries, why put the NATO summit in McCormick place? McCormick place might as
well be right on top of Lake Michigan, too. My husband is convinced something is going to go down because of the spot they chose and the extreme
measures they are taking in warning people how violent and dangerous this could become due to riots, etc., recommending surrounding buildings evacuate
residents during that time due to the possibility of property damage from riots. Also, because he's convinced they need the space of McCormack place
for a reason, and its proximity to the lake, like they're bringing in some secret something out of or off of the lake... lol. But in all
seriousness, why even bring all the attention to something like this, wouldn't it just instigate people to behave badly? Doesn't seem like a good
deterrent. Why relocate one and not the other if situations will be so dangerous?
I don't say this often, but I call false flag with this, in some way, something is going to go down.
The reason I heard for McCormick place is that its because is its so huge that they can just stick the Summit in a center then block off all the exits
and have a big buffer zone. I was last there in last spring about this time, and from what I remember of how it looks like its plausible explanation.
It has alot of space but its alot of open space inside the building, along with easy choke points for security.
As for why this got moved to Chicago, my guess its far more prosaic then any conspiracy theory, it was to showcase Chicago to the world and maybe move
some money to all those within the Chicago Machine that were losing out on the Olympic bid which was thought to be a sure thing with Obama in office.
Anyway makes me glad for once I don't live in the loop.
Also earlier in thread as I was scanning it, there was talk about how rare Earthquakes were in WI, and did a little search, its not as rare as people
