Definitiv sicher ist das mit der Militärübung. Aber ich meine mich zu
erinnern, dass es Hinweise daruaf gab, dass FEMA (entspricht dem
amerikanischen Katastrophenschutz) und wohl weitere Gruppen eine
Übung in NY machen sollten.
Rudi Giulliani hat das dann wohl auch irgendwann bestätigt.
"... the reason Pier 92 was selected as a command center was because
on the next day, on September 12, Pier 92 was going to have a drill,
it had hundreds of people here, from FEMA, from the Federal
Government, from the State, from the State Emergency Management
Office, and they were getting ready for a drill for biochemical
attack. So that was gonna be the place they were going to have the
drill. The equipment was already there, so we were able to establish
a command center there, within three days, that was two and a half to
three times bigger than the command center that we had lost at 7
World Trade Center. And it was from there that the rest of the search
and rescue effort was completed."
