Wednesday, April 26th is going to be a huge day for the United States, but many are worrying the many events are not a coincident.
On the 26th, Operation Gotham Shield will bring together FEMA, Homeland Security, and various other law enforcement/military personnel to prepare for a staged nuclear bomb explosion in Manhattan.
On top of that massive drill, the entire Senate is going to be briefed by President Trump on the North Korea situation. President Trump will be accompanied by four high-ranking military and defense officials. The chances that the two events are happening on the same day is interesting enough, but learning that this third event was taking place just made it seem planned.
The 26th is also going to be the date that the USS Carl Vinson will arrive off the coast of the Korean Peninsula. Coincidence?
Each event obviously has reasons as to why they are performing such drills. According to the Metropolitan Washington Council of Governments (COG), Operation Gotham Shield will do the following:
“Law enforcement officials and other first responders will participate in a full-scale exercise on April 26 designed to prepare for the possibility of a complex coordinated terror attack in the National Capital Region.”
The operation will cover more ground than just the capital. In fact, the operation is set for six sites including Maryland and Northern Virginia. Some locations are District of Columbia, Prince George’s County, Arlington, and Fairfax. Those involved will include hundreds of police, fire and EMS personnel along with several volunteers.
Scott Boggs, Managing Director of Homeland Security and Public Safety at COG, said the following of the massive drill:
“Law enforcement officials practice and exercise their skills on their own regularly because that’s the best way to ensure we are always ready to respond quickly and professionally. On April 26, we’ll go one step further and stage a very realistic emergency event involving multiple sites and actors posing as the casualties. However, there is no reason for residents to be alarmed because the exercise will occur in a controlled environment.”
The three events seem odd to come on the same day, but the reality is they have probably been planning this large drill for quite some time. What do you think? Do you think this is coincidence or do you think the U.S. is planning something?
