The Wall Street Journal’s Rebecca Smith reports that a former Federal Energy Regulatory Commission chairman is acknowledging for the first time that a group of snipers shot up a Silicon Valley substation for 19 minutes last year, knocking out 17 transformers before slipping away into the night.
I don't buy into this, sounds like they are setting the stage.edit on 5-2-2014 by 13th Zodiac because: (no reason given)
Pretty interesting but If I was going to attack the gov that exactly what id do...hit soft targets with low security that cause large financial problems. Imagine quite a few people doing this at once across the country. We would probably catch very few and there would be alot of damage.
I don't believe the AK47 would be classed as a sniper rifle. And why attack a sub station ? And why stay on target for 19 minutes. If damage was to be done then there would be easier ways of doing it. Sounds like a group of hill Billy's getting there rocks off to me.

Nice picture of a suppressed AR rifle but rifles that shoot 7.62x39 are not sniper rifles. The attack may have been just vandalism or a real attack but to call them snipers is kinda extravagant story telling.
