The Portland Nuke

The truthers are still going crazy over the Portland emergency preparedness exercise. Supposedly sometime this week they are going to use it to explode a nuke in the city. In fact they have even started website dedicated to the subject, with a whole 22 members registering thus far.

This is an urgent advisory notice from concerned citizens of Oregon and Washington about an upcoming U.S. Joint Forces Command emergency management exercise known as NOBLE RESOLVE 07-2 that will simulate terrorism or disaster scenarios in the Lower Columbia River Basin between Aug. 20th and Aug 24th, 2007.

NOBLE RESOLVE 07-2 was designed and will be directed by U.S. Joint Forces Command (USJFCOM) and the Department of Homeland Security. We are aware of no public notice concerning this exercise, but preliminary investigation has revealed that Oregon National Guard officials and federal officials will conduct the drill. Details from official sources are minimal.

Of course everyone knows that computer based exercises always involve the actual use of nuclear weapons. I wonder if they got the Oregon National Guard to sign their "no false flag" pledge cards?

I am actually supposed to go to Portland this weekend. I was hoping to visit Powell's. I guess I had better call ahead...
