Homeland Security Admits Boston Drill Eerily Similar to Marathon Bombing


The Department of Homeland Security has now officially acknowledged the ‘frighteningly similar’ scenarios between an Operation Urban Shield drill they planned for Boston and the actual Marathon bombing event in a Boston Globe article.

TruthStream Media.com reported back on April 23 about the connection between the drill underway on April 15 at the finish line and the counterterrorism exercises conducted by Boston’s Urban Shield team, which including overlapping layers of Homeland Security, FEMA, statewide and regional emergency responders and the City of Boston, including its Office of Emergency Management.

This includes suggestive photographic evidence that may prove members of these emergency agencies were on scene at the finish line bombing no more than 2-3 minutes after the incident (in addition to the Craft International figures who’ve been much discussed). In other words, they were already at the finish line, in formation, conducting a drill.

One thing that is clear from the photo evidence is that immediately after the bombing there were relatively few people among the huddled group of injured, or those with them. By the time the woman believed to be a city emergency manager arrives about two minutes later, a huge crowd of responders, emergency exercise participants and onlookers had gathered around the injured people. It seemed that many civilians, rather than trained EMTs and fire fighters, who regularly save lives, were tending to the wounded.

The Boston Marathon bombing had obvious signs of being staged, and just like the pivotal false flag 9/11, that meant overlap with planning drills – before, during and after.


ON DAY ONE of the Boston bombing, Truthstream Media reported on the running coach who witnessed bomb sniffing dogs and authorities proclaiming a “drill” underway at the marathon finish line, making clear to those who have long since followed the pattern that the attack came with the prior knowledge of, and perhaps participation of, government. This was strongly suggested by photos showing official looking operatives with backpacks and communications gear near the bomb site before hand, and immediately after the bombing.

That revelation was followed by news that the FBI had already checked out the Tsarnaev brothers over their ‘extremist’ Internet activity. While the agency claimed to have found no evidence of ill intent, the boys’ mother has stated the the FBI was monitoring and checking in on them for 3-5 years.

It has been exposed, admittedly, that nearly all of the ‘plots’ since 9/11 have been provocateured by the FBI in “sting” operations where a patsy is goaded into taking action with a dud bomb or averted attack. In the case of the 1993 World Trade Center bombing, the admitted role of the FBI in setting up the perpetrators did NOT stop the attack from going live and killing several people and injuring hundreds.

Just as 9/11 followed terrorism exercise scenarios that portrayed the Twin Towers inside crosshairs (as well as the Pentagon), and drills where jet aircraft was used as a weapon against the World Trade Center, it has now been revealed the the Boston Marathon bombing followed plans for a specific Boston exercise where backpack bombs were used.

The World Trade Center, attacked in 1993, and used in training exercises as a scenario target (as shown in the photo below for FEMA drills in 1997 and 1999), the Boston Marathon was routinely seen as a threat and the subject of repeated drills:

Joint drills run by FEMA and the Department of Justice foresaw the World Trade Center as the target of terrorism, as depicted in these 1997 and 1999 exercise scenarios.

Chillingly, the Operation Urban Shield drill, funded by a $200,000 Homeland Security grant, depicted an apparent extremist patriot group dubbed “Free America Citizens” planting backpack explosives in ‘dry-run’ to gauge police response for a larger attack – at least suggesting that DHS expects violence from right-wing extremist groups.

In this case, Homeland Security’s Urban Shield drill in Boston was scheduled to take place after the bombing. However, it follows numerous Boston Urban Shield exercises and semi-annual multi-agency drills that take place every year in Boston on Patriot’s Day (when the Marathon is typically held) and July 4th.

Homeland Security Advisor Arnold Bogis pointed this out, stating in ‘Marathon as a dry-run disaster,’ a 2008 article, that:

“Today thousands of runners and hundreds of thousands of spectators are unwittingly taking part in a planned disaster …“Massachusetts is better prepared for a real disaster because every Patriot’s Day and Fourth of July is treated as a ‘disaster.’”

Operation Urban Shield takes place in major cities across the country, as Homeland Security uses the pretense of potential attacks and funding for training scenarios as a means of taking command of local & state emergency personnel.

A fellow emergency planner who was not at the scene of the Boston Marathon bombing Twittered over news about the involvement of Boston’s Office of Emergency Management: “Nice mention of Rene Fielding, former colleague who’s been helping Boston prepare for a terrorist attack for years…” later adding, “We spent years rehearsing only to be so far away when it happened. Sucks to be so far away.”


The attitude of this emergency manager gives away the disconnect between the consequences of real events and the disaster/terrorist training that takes place ahead of, and often on top of, these attacks.

Real lives are at stake, and there is every reason to think that the drills are covering for the real perpetrators, NOT preparing authorities to catch them in the act.
