Okay, this is just scary

July 10, 2005

I hate to sound cliche here, but DAMN … coincidence or is something more sinister going on here? My guess is the “company” they were drilling with is the London Underground.

London bombings coincide with security exercise:

Mark Frauenfelder: On July 7 BBC Radio five interviewed Peter Power, managing director of Visor Consultants, a “crisis management” consultant. Power, who used to work at Scotland Yard’s Anti Terrorist Branch told the BBC that Visor was running a security exercise at the same times and places that the bombings took place.

POWER: At half past nine this morning we were actually running an exercise for a company of over a thousand people in London based on simultaneous bombs going off precisely at the railway stations where it happened this morning, so I still have the hairs on the back of my neck standing up right now.

HOST: To get this quite straight, you were running an exercise to see how you would cope with this and it happened while you were running the exercise?

POWER: Precisely, and it was about half past nine this morning, we planned this for a company and for obvious reasons I don’t want to reveal their name but they’re listening and they’ll know it. And we had a room full of crisis managers for the first time they’d met and so within five minutes we made a pretty rapid decision that this is the real one and so we went through the correct drills of activating crisis management
