Washington DC – -(Ammoland.com)- In January 2013, the Ohio Army National Guard 52nd Civil Support Unit conducted a “training exercise” for a scenario in which “two school employees…[became] disgruntled over the government's interpretation of the Second Amendment” and launched a terror attack.
Details of the training are just now beginning to emerge.
Mediatrackers.org obtained documents outlining the training exercise, in which Second Amendment supporters launch a biological attack. The documents describe the exercise as “[centering] around the production of a chemical warfare agent and a biological warfare agent with the intent to cause harm to the community.”
The moments immediately after the attack are described thus:
The public health department reports that an unusually large number of individuals are being treated at local hospitals and urgent care facilities with nausea, vomiting, & diarrhea with flu-like symptoms. More concerning is that many of them have irritated red burning skin with blisters.
On January 18, 2013, Portsmouth's WSAZ News Channel 3 reported: “A dead science teacher, weapons of mass destruction, first responders in Hazmat suits and the Ohio National Guard [were] all [spotted] near the municipal stadium in Portsmouth. [But] there's no cause for alarm–this [was] just a drill!”
Portsmouth Police Chief Bill Raisin defended the exercise and reminded the public that “there is such a thing as domestic terrorism.”
