    I think twitter time stamps are about 3 hours off. (unreliable)
    Anyone else noticing this on their end?











    Does any of this really matter, I mean does it make any difference whether they knew about this "potential threat" (or drill) and chose not to publicize it?

    Shouldn't we give the FBI and all forms of government the benefit of the doubt?

    Realistic drill puts first responders through their paces

    November 3, 2012

    The scenario had been carefully planned: A terrorist group prepared to hurt vast numbers of people around Boston would leave backpacks filled with explosives at Faneuil Hall, the Seaport District, and in other towns, spreading waves of panic and fear. Detectives would have to catch the culprits.

    Months of painstaking planning had gone into the exercise, dubbed “Operation Urban Shield,” meant to train dozens of detectives in the Greater Boston area to work together to thwart a terrorist threat. The hypothetical terrorist group was even given a name: Free America Citizens, a home-grown cadre of militiamen whose logo would be a metal skull wearing an Uncle Sam hat and a furious expression, according to a copy of the plans obtained by the Boston Globe.

    World terrorism IS a threat for us TOO...

    It's a moot point we always need to be real cautious about what is just being claimed in defense of this so called 'war on terrorism'!!

    fyi
