Urban Shield SWAT event- Preventing Terrorism Aim Of Operation ‘Urban Shield’

Preventing Terrorism?

More like reacting.


It will be easy to spot an attempted strike. Expect the bad guys to be sloppy- the packages they send will look like they were put together by drunken 3rd graders, or Wile E Coyote.


The federal government must have magic crime fighting powers to stop terrorists. The magic powers don’t work on crimes like bank robbery or drug trafficking.

Documents provide rare insight into FBI’s terrorism stings

It appears the federal government has been extremely successful in preventing major post 911 domestic terror strikes. Why don’t law enforcement authorities apply these skills to stop other violent crimes?

Why not go ahead and put an end to bank robbery using an approach similar to what has worked in shutting down major terror strikes?

(There were 677 bank robberies in California last year. Imagine bringing that number down to where the numbers are Re: major terror strikes.)

Maybe because hardcore criminals don’t hold hands with federal agents before they set out to rob a bank or move illegal drugs into North America?


The Advantage of Fusion Centers

Can fusion centers stop violent crimes?

Here’s a few bad guys that weren’t slowed down:


Suspects On The Loose After ‘Take Over Style Robbery’ At The McDonald’s


Lone madman shuts down Mount Rainier National Park & ties up 200 law officers for 24 hours.

Park remains closed for almost a week– madman not found until after he succumbed to the forces of nature- not a shootout with the good guys.


Josh Powell blows up house & kids


41-year-old Peter Keller-

Victims shot to death prior to North Bend house fire

“After working for hours in the rugged terrain, West said some crew members needed IV infusions for exhaustion.”

“Four officers were taken to the hospital for exhaustion and dehydration overnight after navigating the rugged terrain around the bunker.”


60+ rounds fired in four Seattle drive-by shootings


Home invasion shooting


Planned Parenthood bomber


“…19-year-old Jake England confessed to shooting three people and 32-year-old Alvin Watts confessed to shooting two.”


Boy, 5, brings heroin for show and tell


In a general sense- are fusion centers able to stop mass shootingsserial killings, or drug trafficking?

War on Drugs Hasn’t Stemmed Flow Into U.S.


Post 911 efforts to keep terrorists from visiting the homeland- still unable to keep illegal drugs out

Illegal drugs can travel from anywhere on the globe to anywhere in N. America.

Ditto for terrorists.


If all the bank robbers in North America decided to become terrorists instead- how would the Dept. of Homeland Security stop them?

Buzz around in gunboats and helicopters?

Check ID cards?

NORAD/US Air Force radar?

Scramble fighter jets?

Inspect cargo shipments at US port cities?

Internal Suspicionless checkpoints and roadblocks?
