Source: Wire Reports In yet another example of how almost every major terror event is accompanied by a security drill focused around the same scenario, Oslo police were conducting a bombing exercise at a location near the Oslo Opera House just 48 hours before a terrorist blast hit a government building in the Norwegian capital.
According to the translated version of an Aftenposten report, “Anti-terror police fired explosive charges at a training center in Oslo, two hundred meters from the Opera, but forgot to notify the public.”
The exercise occurred on Wednesday and revolved around anti-terror units attacking a disused building at the edge of Bjørvika pier with bombs and firearms.
“The men lowered themselves down from the roof and in through the window that had just been blown out, while they fired hand their weapons,” states the report, noting that the exercise was “dramatic,” produced “violent bangs,” and was watched by spectators at the nearby Opera House.
A video of the drill that accompanies the story shows police scaling the side of a building with an explosion going off below them before they enter the window and start firing.
Police had to publicly apologize today for not informing the public about the exercise.
Although it’s too early to judge the nature of this exercise, the fallback of a drill, which gives the state an excuse should any evidence of complicity in the real attack emerge, has been evident in previous major terror events, including both 7/7 and 9/11.
In the case of the London bombings, a consultancy agency with government and police connections was running an exercise for an unnamed company that revolved around the London Underground being bombed at the exact same times and locations as happened in real life on the morning of July 7th, a “coincidence” many skeptics of the official story have dismissed as a statistical impossibility.
I too think that. It is pretty hard to just come up with huge amounts of explosives with out being noticed if the newspapers are hacking phones the government is hacking all of them that much explosives just isnt down at the corner store so therfore I think its either sponsered by them with physical and financial help or told to allow it to happen. what better way to control then by fear?...

Why am I not at all surprised to hear this? Interestingly many people believed it to be a false flag from the get go - including me. I increasingly believe that pretty much all of these 'terrorist' attacks are perpetrated by our terrorist governments, their masters and their minions.

The timing of this incident is quite interesting, and the somewhat irrelevant quotes from the Prime Minister of New Zealand in the following AFP article make it that much more intriguing.
As the sociopolitical tensions in Europe rise as the Euro falls and the debt crisis looms, another reminder of the ever-present al Qaeda boogeymen is presented to unite the people against an outside enemy.
Right after the news breaks that an Israeli spy ring was operating in New Zealand, yet again stealing identities, the Prime Minister refuses to comment and shifts the focus towards the other kind of global terrorism.
The false identities being gathered by the Israeli operatives were not going to be used to buy beer for under-aged kids, they would be used for “sensitive” operations like assassinations.
Why is was that not regarded as an act of global terrorism? Why was it not, at the least, investigated and regarded as such? When national leaders are bowing to foreign intelligence services, the entire world has a problem on their hands.
US President Barack Obama offered condolences to Norway after deadly twin attacks Friday and urged countries around the world to step up cooperation to combat terror.
Speaking during a meeting with New Zealand’s Prime Minister John Key, Obama called the attacks “a reminder that the entire international community has a stake in preventing this kind of terror from occurring.”
“We have to work cooperatively together on intelligence and in terms of prevention of these kinds of horrible attacks,” the president said. [...]
“The US has reached out to the Norwegian authorities to offer assistance, but there have been no specific requests from the Norwegians thus far,” Fulton told AFP.
New Zealand’s prime minister, in his meeting with Obama, also voiced his “sympathies and concerns” over the attacks in Norway.
“If it is an act of global terrorism, then I think that what it shows is no country, large or small, is immune from that risk,” Key said.
“And that’s why New Zealand plays its part in Afghanistan as we try and join others like the United States in making the world a safer place,” he said.
“You never want a serious crisis to go to waste — and what I mean by that is an opportunity to do things that you didn’t think you could do before.”
