According to the Washington Times, the Department of Homeland Security is reportedly training Transportation Security Administration checkpoint screeners in preparation for a possible mass shooting at one of the agency's security checkpoints.
According to the Times,
It is unclear whether the TSA is conducting the reported mass shooting scenario training at airports around the nation or only at the airport where our source, a veteran of the TSA, is assigned. The TSA source claims with obvious concern that his own life, along with the lives of other unarmed TSA personnel, would be in grave danger were an airport checkpoint shooting to unfold.
The source, who has already undergone the agency training, asserted that it created a chilling scenario that has instilled fear that something may unfold: u201CEvery day when I arrive for work, I look for an escape route in case someone opens fire. We have been told to save ourselves.u201D
The training has compelled some to ask whether the TSA has intelligence of a possible impending checkpoint shooting.
The Times added that it is u201Cunclear whether the alleged training is simply a prudent attempt by the agency to protect its own employees from every imaginable contingency,” referencing the 2009 Christmas Day u201CUnderwear Bomberu201D as a u201Creason to pay close attention to the details of Homeland Security's operations.u201D According to Wikipedia, the so-called Underwear Bomber, Umar Abdulmutallab, “attempted to detonate plastic explosives hidden in his underwear” while onboard a flight from Amsterdam to Detroit. The Times notes that a witness who saw Abdulmutallab board the flight has suggested that U.S. government agents permitted him to do so while knowing he was a threat to safety:
Michigan attorney Kurt Haskell, a 2012 Democratic Congressional candidate who lost to incumbent Tim Walberg (R-MI), stated by way of a Victim Impact Statement during Abdulmutallab's sentencing hearing in federal court that while he and his wife Lori waited to board the flight in Amsterdam, he observed a well-dressed man help the bomber board the flight without a passport.
Haskell is convinced that u201Ca federal agent gave Abdulmutallab a defective bomb to carry onto the plane to create an incident that would cause the government to install full body scanners at airports nationwide,u201D according to USA Today.
Haskell stated, u201CRegardless of how media and government try to shape this case, I am convinced that Umar was given an intentionally defective bomb by a U.S. agent.u201D
Upon hearing about the TSA training for a checkpoint shooting, he told the Washington Times that it u201Cdoesn't surprise me at all,u201D adding that he feared the government may be planning another attack.
u201CAs a first-hand eyewitness to a proven false-flag attack, I know that the government does stage fake attacks to further governmental policy,u201D he declared.
