More DNC Reassurance

I’m impressed!Lots of consternation related to the fact that no one notified the public about the training exercise. In a real life event, though, no one notifies the public beforehand. I’m thinking that testing the 911 and other lines was part of the drill.  A whole week of this is pretty amazing.(photo from rawfish.com)

    It was crazy, we were at cueravaca (sp) park last night watching kickball and one of the blackhawks went straight at a highrise (the greenish tinted one) and stopped just short. You could see it’s reflection perfectly in the glass. Then it shot straigth up and hovered feet above the roof. That was repeated once or twice, with the smaller choppers banking between towers. Quite a scene.

    And yeah. Short of a moments (is this a Red Dawn Moment) I figured they were doing maneuvers of some sort, and yeah terrorists don’t send press releases.

    I saw the black helicopters buzzing around downtown yesterday, a Blackhawk and a pair of MD500s. The smaller ships had (presumably) special forces soldiers dangling out the side. Quite a sight to see them so close to the buildings and the ground.
