View Diary: Can't make it up: Feds hold "Marijuana Terror Training Drill". (201 comments)

  •  Totally absurd premise - valuable drill (7+ / 0-)

    A little inside baseball from a security specialist . . .

    When you design a drill like this, you literally script it - down to a surprising level of detail.  Most often, you even story-board it.  And security personnel aren't known for their writing skills.  If they pick Black Panthers, or even Muslims, they risk - rightly - bad press.

    So, what with daily drug turmoil in Mexico, it was marijuana growers this time.  As if marijuana growers are heavily armed, have any incentive for terror action, or are in any way organized.  But marijuana does remain felonious in the US . . .

    All these guys are guilty of is a horrendously bad, absurdly incredulous script. But even at that, it's a script that could have been worse.  And it all went well, unlike similar drills under Bush Manchild.

    No more Mr. Nice Guy . . .
