So the US, together with Canada and the UK, are running a major anti-terrorist exercise.
The BBC selected a fantastic quote from US Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff:
"The point of this [the exercise] is not to design a simulation that makes us "look good" because we were able to figure out how to pre-package everything that we wanted to do..."
Of course not and of course they would not admit something like that and of course they would not fail their own exercise miserably. It would be interesting to know how useful these exercises will really be. Hopefully all evaluations will be academic.
