Conspiranoids: nuclear attack imminent
The apparent reality that a mock bombing drill on the London Underground was scheduled for the morning of 7-7 has got the conspiranoids seeing patterns. They also point to Pentagon terror drills on the morning of Sept. 11, 2001 (see e.g., Prison Planet). We also recently noted a FEMA drill apparently slated for New York City the day after 9-11.
Now, the Pentagon Northern Command is about to undertake a drill simulating an attempt to smuggle a nuclear weapon into Charleston, SC. "Journalist" Leland Lehrman claims on the conspiranoid Alex Jones Show (PrisonPlanetTV) that anonymous sources in the military told him the warhead in the drill was originally intended to "go live"—that is, the drill would be used as the cover for a real "false flag" nuclear attack. Lehrman also claimed that Army Gen. Kevin Byrnes, recently relieved of his command for having an extra-marital affair (even though he is long-separated from his wife—a very quaint anachronism in the age of Abu Ghraib), was actually sacked for dissenting from the "live" drill. Says Lehrman:
"Speculation exists that he had potentially discovered the fact that it was gonna go live and that he was trying to put a stop to it or also speculation indicates that he may be part of a military coup designed to prevent the ridiculous idea of doing a nuclear war with Iran."
"Speculation indicates." Well said.
