DHS Admits Boston Training Drill Involving Backpack Explosives Planned Months Before Marathon


www.storyleak.com

According to the DHS documents acquired by the Boston Globe, the agents were planning on conducting training exercises centered around a fictitious terrorist group called ‘Free America Citizens’, a group that would plant backpacks full of explosives around Boston that the detectives would be forced to track down. Ultimately, of course, this ended up happening at the Boston Marathon itself with precise accuracy. The Globe report reads that “the city was hit with a real terrorist attack executed in a frighteningly similar fashion.”

This explains a lot. They had to come out and say this after all the photos of the questionable scenarios went viral. This explains why the director of FEMA was on site and giving orders. This explains why windows that were not broken out from the bomb show up broken later. There was a drill there. It just accidentally happened when real bombs went off…I guess….So there WAS fake blood and actors on the scene. That is what they do at these drills.

No, you didn't read the sourced article very well:


But two months before the training exercise was to take place, the city was hit with a real terrorist attack executed in a frighteningly similar fashion. The chaos of the Boston Marathon bombings disrupted plans for the exercise, initially scheduled for this weekend, forcing police to postpone. ( Source)

The drill was scheduled to happen in June 2013, it wasn't going on when the bombing happened.

edit: Thanks for pointing this out, I though it was planned for the same day.

Wasn't it confirmed that there was a drill going at the same time though?

Why is this guy lying? He must be lying if there was no drill, ...Right?



And this never happened too, I assume ...

I can't watch videos, so I don't know what he's saying, sorry.

There may well have been a drill at the event, but it wasn't the one cited in the OP, a drill that centered on bombs in backpacks.

Wow. I remember the talk about drills before the bombing. This just keeps getting more insane. My guess is this story was about to be leaked so they had to go public with it.

How are we ever supposed to trust anything we are told by the US government?

very suspicious. this is enough to reopen the case on whether or not it was actually a false flag. i have held that it was a staged event, but there was very little evidence available.


The planned exercise has eerie similarities to the police investigation that led to the capture of the alleged Boston Marathon bombers, Tamerlan and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, whose images were caught on video cameras and who were captured after a car chase and shoot-out with police.

also from the article:


In the training scenario, investigators participating in Urban Shield would have to track down footage of the bombers caught by street surveillance cameras and the phones of “witnesses.”

They would have to call on intelligence analysts to figure out which terrorist cell might be threatening the city.

In the scenario, the terrorists would flee police in stolen cars they would dump in cities outside Boston, which would compel detectives from different jurisdictions to cooperate and share intelligence.

One major clue would have been the body of one of the terrorists found near a stolen car, dead from a self-inflicted gunshot wound. There were also false leads to keep investigators guessing, the official said.

funny how their plan was nearly identical to the actual bombings themselves. it also states in the article:


“We can’t talk about what we’re doing for emergency preparedness,” she said. “The people who participate in this don’t know what the scenario is.”

i wonder...if the drill was set up so that the detectives didn't know anything beyond "it's a scenario", what would be the outcome if detectives and police WEREN'T told it was a training op. a completely planned event where almost no one knew it wasn't real.

The first video is about this:


An eyewitness to the Boston bombings told Local 15 News there was a bombing prevention exercise going on alongside the Marathon. Ali Stevenson, himself a runner, said he thought it odd there were bomb-sniffing dogs and spotters and that «they kept making announcements to the participants do not worry, it's just a training exercise».



The second video shows this:

Boston bomb squad had previously announced "controlled explosion" drill (Video)

Boston Globe tweeted

Officials: There will be a controlled explosion opposite the library within one minute as part of bomb squad activities


As far as I know they were denying that there was a drill. Makes me wonder why?

We can't...

They deny for as long as they can, and when they can't deny anymore they partially confess...

Again, I'm not saying that there wasn't a drill going on -- with the state of security these days, I think that one can assume that there is a drill of some sort at every major event, because the best way to train is under actual circumstances. What I said was this drill scenario, bombs in backpacks, wasn't conducted then, it was supposed to happen in June, and all over the city, not associated with the marathon.

Maybe it was a social engineering drill also. It is no secret when there is an accident or anything major like this many people claim injuries(and seek compensation). Could it be they made it look like a terror event just to see how many people claim injuries?

For the record, I do believe the bombs were real and the injuries and deaths were real. As far as who put the bombs in place, I don't think we'll ever have a straight answer.

Why are they denying that there was any drill going on at the marathon?

Who is denying that there was any drill going on? If you have a link to a source, which is not a video, that would be helpful.

You point is well taken.

However, why should we trust these statements when the facts tell us a different story?

Is this all just a chilling twist of fate that keeps happening over and over? It brings to my mind echos of London underground "bombing exercises" which took place at the same time as the real attack. learn more.

I remember thinking it odd that eye-witnesses of the bombing of the Federal Building in OK City had seen the Oklahoma Bomb Disposal Unit Team parked across the street before the Ryder truck blew up. I also thought is odd that the same 9/11 "war games" were being conducted during the actual tragedy on the morning of September 11, 2001.

If this is a pattern that I am seeing, what does it mean?

Maybe infowars had it right.

Again, those drills planned for Boston remind me of the London bombing of 7/7. What are the odds of all these human tragedies having coincidental "drills" going on at the exact same time and place as "real" events?

Remember, on 7/7 people really died. It brings to mind Operation Gladio.

Well, in the case of the "bombs in backpacks drill", I trust the statement because why the "it was scheduled in June 2013" part of it if they were covering something up? Why say anything at all?

As trigger-happy as they are all getting I expect there would be some real blood spilled even in a drill scenario.

What do they do if there are real injuries and deaths during these drills, declare a real attack took place to cover up the "accidents?"

I too thought it was reported as such and was under the impression a drill was going on during the Boston Marathon when that all broke out so I naturally had some confusion about which part of the whole scenario might have been the drill and which for real.

Amazing, though, that there have been drills taking place simultaneously during these "terrorist attacks" such as 9/11 and the Sandy Hook school shootings. Either we have an enormous "leak" so that these terrorists know just when to strike during the confusion, or that there is something yet more "fishy" about the whole thing, coincidences and all - I will not dare to suggest false flag as it sounds so cliché now.

I might suggest we quit having "drills" and maybe the terrorist attacks would stop as well.

I am beginning to think that the real scenario IS the drill. That these events like 9/11 are staged - shocked, right? - that the people staging the events know they are not real but is all a real-life blood and guts drama acted and played out for the American people with a much more insidious agenda in mind.

I know there was an explanation offered that settled the whole matter, but one of the first bits of "funny" information to come out in Boston was the photo of one of the dead bombing victims that just happened to be the same photo with a different cropping that was said to be the slain principal of the Sandy Hook shootings. Of course when questioned on the matter it was claimed that was a mistake. Obviously! It was a real bone-head error no matter what reason it occurred.

I would like to accept these news incidences as factual accounts and have real sympathy for the victims. There is just too much disbelief to suspend in order to do so and take it all seriously and without question. I would feel too much like an idiot if I took it all as reported and didn't question a thing. Either journalism is getting way too sloppy or we have agencies of government that don't mind insulting our intelligence as a matter of routine.

That's the thing OP is trying to point out. They can say it was scheduled for October if they wanted to, we'd never know when it was actually scheduled. They can come up with excuses on the fly with no need for an alibi or anything, that makes it really difficult to catch them red-handed.
