Bomb drill exercise simultaneously occurred as London attacks
7/10/2005 8:30:00 AM GMT
A consultancy agency with government and police connections was running a drill exercise for an unnamed company which revolved around the London Underground being bombed at the exact same times and locations as was happening in real life on July 7th.
In a BBC Radio 5 interview which was aired on that very evening, July 7th, the host interviewed Peter Power, Managing Director of Visor Consultants, a firm which labels itself as a 'crisis management' advice company, also known as a PR firm.
Peter Power was a former Scotland Yard official, working at one time with the Anti Terrorist Branch.
Visor's managing director told the radio show's host that at the exact same time as the London bombings were taking place, his company was running a 1,000 person strong exercise drill in which the London Underground was being bombed at the exact same locations, at the exact same times, as happened in real life.
The transcript is as follows.
POWER: At half past nine this morning we were actually running an exercise for a company of over a thousand people in London based on simultaneous bombs going off precisely at the railway stations where it happened this morning, so I still have the hairs on the back of my neck standing up right now.
HOST: To get this quite straight, you were running an exercise to see how you would cope with this and it happened while you were running the exercise?
POWER: Precisely, and it was about half past nine this morning, we planned this for a company and for obvious reasons I don't want to reveal their name but they're listening and they'll know it. And we had a room full of crisis managers for the first time they'd met and so within five minutes we made a pretty rapid decision that this is the real one and so we went through the correct drills of activating crisis management procedures to jump from slow time to quick time thinking and so on.
The fact that the exercise mirrored the exact locations and times of the bombings goes beyond to it being a 'coincidence'. According to Power the drill focused around 'simultaneous bombings'. At first the bombings were thought to have been spread over an hour, but that was later confirmed by police as being wrong and that in fact the bombings were only seconds apart, therefore simultaneous.
Whether Mr. Power and Visor Consultants were 'in on the bombing' or anything of that nature is not that important as the British government or one of their private company offshoots could have hired Visor to run the exercise for a number of purposes.
This is precisely what happened on the morning of September 11th 2001 with the CIA conducting drills of flying hijacked planes into the WTC and Pentagon at 8:30 in the morning.
It is clear that at least five if not six training exercises were in operation in the days leading up to and on the morning of 9/11. What this meant was that the NORAD radar screens showed as many as 22 hijacked airliners at the same time. As NORAD had been briefed that this was part of the exercise drill normal reactive procedure was forestalled and delayed.
The large numbers of 'blips' on NORAD screens which displayed both the real and 'drill' hijacked planes explain why press reports released immediately afterwards were confusing citing that up to eight planes had been hijacked.
According to the spokesman of the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), the agency was in New York the night before 9/11
FEMA spokesman Tom Kenney said to news anchorman Dan Rather in an interview on Wednesday, September 12th, 2001 that FEMA was deployed to New York on Monday night, September 10th, to be ready to go into action on Tuesday morning, September 11th.
Kenney: "We're currently one of the first teams that was deployed to support the city of New York for this disaster. We arrived on late Monday night, and went into action on Tuesday morning. And not until today did we get a full opportunity to work the entire site."
Needless to say, Kenney's statement was denied and put down to the official's confusion over the dates.
However, when former New York City mayor Rudolph Guliani testified before the 9/11 Commission the story was blown:
"... the reason Pier 92 was selected as a command center was because on the next day, on September 12, Pier 92 was going to have a drill, it had hundreds of people here, from FEMA, from the Federal Government, from the State, from the State Emergency Management Office, and they were getting ready for a drill for biochemical attack. So that was gonna be the place they were going to have the drill. The equipment was already there, so we were able to establish a command center there, within three days, that was two and a half to three times bigger than the command center that we had lost at 7 World Trade Center. And it was from there that the rest of the search and rescue effort was completed."
The Anglo-American establishment that controls the military-industrial complex of the West has been caught time and again of carrying out bombings and other attacks around the world in a bid to further their corporate aims and blame their enemies.
The London "terror alert" level was lowered before the bombings took place. Thus giving the perpetrators extra cover to plan and execute the attack without having to evade the most stringent security.
The wider agenda will become clearer once Tony Blair points the finger of blame at the selected parties designated to the fall. But for the moment he's happy to grandstand as the courageous leader who immediately returned to London to take control of the chaos.
BBC polls that were showing 80 per cent plus opposed the ID card will now likely flip back in the opposite direction. Support for the European Union and increased globalization through the G8 will rise.
Who stands to gain from all this? Who has the motive?
The London Underground exercises were used as the fallback cover to carry out the attack.
