Meanwhile heroin traffickers cross into the US free of screening, scanning, pat downs, special IDs, inspection of personal items, etc.

Heroin traffickers are frequently successful at what they do. If terrorists were just as interested in entering the US- it appears that federal departments and agencies would have no way to stop them.

No mention of how the US seems to struggle to get the upper hand after being engaged for years now with folks who have had no air force.

Remember when the take down of Saddam Hussein & Osama bin Laden was big news in the War on Terror?

You are at risk of attack, you should be thankful that first responders & the troops are keeping you safe, be constantly aware of your surroundings, etc.

Maybe not such a great time to speak about military ops?

“A senior Air Force officer and a federal lawmaker both have said in the past week that electronic attack aircraft based out of Naval Air Station Whidbey Island are likely being used in Syrian and Iraqi air strikes.”

What prevents the badass terrorists we are supposed to stay scared of from blowing themselves up in a crowded airport just short of the screening checkpoint?

Ditto for hundreds of events nationwide each year at rock concerts, baseball games, basketball games, pro sports events, college events, etc.

How about city transit buses- any security screening required to walk up to a bus stop and take a seat on the bus?

Add in university campuses, hospitals, ferry boats, day care centers, etc., & it looks like terrorists have had daily opportunities to cause disruption- even though we are told that sending US Troops overseas is somehow preventing bad people from traveling to the US.

Intense security focus for the big game- what prevents terrorists from going 2 states over & blowing up a day care facility?

Heroin traffickers show the way-

Heroin traffickers are frequently successful at what they do. If terrorists were just as interested in entering the US- it appears that federal departments and agencies would have no way to stop them.

The people who run the surveillance state decide who fits into the terrorist category. When people who are not terrorists are not stopped- it does not count against the track record of attempting to prevent all major terror strikes after 911.

In a free society- young people would understand this prior to graduating from high school.

Nothing about this knowledge is about being disrespectful or interfering with law enforcement operations.

Random thoughts:

Typical protocol for local training involves a working relationship with the press. The US Navy seems to understand this:

Anti-terrorism drill set at Indian Island next week

Navy plans oil spill drill in Port Townsend Bay on Thursday

Upcoming exercise helps keep security forces in shape

 

Comments following the PDN article above & several days of reporting that followed-

If the US was turned into one giant military base it looks like many would be OK with that.

Several posts indicating that the event was no big deal & that people should be thankful for the sound of freedom/missions meant to keep us safe.

Very little in the way of questioning anything related to military forces which have been elevated to a higher status in American culture since the big 911 failure.

 

The US Armed Forces were irrelevant in defending American rights and freedoms, our physical security, & The Constitution on 911.

Ditto for all other federal agencies and departments.

We’re not in the habit of winning decades of undeclared wars overseas- why would we think they have any bearing on American rights and freedoms?

 

One or two comments scolding others and reminding them that their right to post comments is protected by the people wearing a uniform.

Americans wouldn’t have the freedom to post comments on newspaper websites if people had not given their lives in Iraq and Afghanistan to protect that freedom?

Hey school teachers- where did this idea come from? Were US troops sent to Vietnam so that Americans could be free to send letters to the editor?

Is there any case in which the US Armed Forces have been sent to distant lands on a mission to protect freedom of speech?

Is protecting freedom of speech even part of training scenarios?

If The Troops are fighting for your freedom to share ideas on the web why would you be scolded for doing so?

 

One or two comments indicating that the Army must do training.

The US has huge holdings of federal land set aside for military operations such as bombing ranges, missile ranges, combat training centers, The Yakima Training CenterMCAGCC, etc.

One or two comments saying – back in my home town- we’re proud to be near military operational zones, etc.

 

The training is meant to keep us safe?

I still haven’t been able to figure out how the War on Terror works.

Seventh suspected or confirmed heroin overdose that Port Angeles this month.

 

The Border Patrol at Port Angeles has made no arrest linked to the US/Canada border in more than 3 years.

DHS says special ID cards make it virtually impossible for those who wish to do harm or violate U.S. laws to move heroin into Port Angeles.

DHS- please get with the Army to save on helicopter training.

DEA-

“Barnes says the heroin comes straight up I-5 from Mexico and is one of the cheapest drugs out there.”

DHS- please get with the DEA and tell them about the special ID cards.
