Portland to Host Terrorism Drill ³NOBLE RESOLVE 07-2² Aug. 20 to 24
Oregon Truth Alliance
Sunday Aug 19, 2007

This is an urgent advisory notice from concerned citizens of Oregon and 
Washington about an upcoming U.S. Joint Forces Command emergency management 
exercise known as NOBLE RESOLVE 07-2 that will simulate terrorism or disaster 
scenarios in the Lower Columbia River Basin between Aug. 20th and Aug 24th, 

NOBLE RESOLVE 07-2 was designed and will be directed by U.S. Joint Forces 
Command (USJFCOM) and the Department of Homeland Security. We are aware of no 
public notice concerning this exercise, but preliminary investigation has 
revealed that Oregon National Guard officials and federal officials will conduct
the drill. Details from official sources are minimal.

This advisory is to document our concerns, raise public awareness and urge 
citizen action based on the following facts:

1. NOBLE RESOLVE is a computer-based simulation of a large-scale emergency 
situation (e.g. earthquake, hurricane, tsunami, or terrorist attack with nuclear
weapon) in order to train for managing all aspects of the emergency response 
through comprehensive software.

2. Military exercises such as NOBLE RESOLVE 07-2 have a recent history of 
coinciding with lethal ³live² events. This occurred both at the start of Desert 
Storm in 1990 and on 9/11/01 when five or more major military or security 
exercises were in progress on the very day of the actual attacks. The same 
phenomenon occurred with the London Bombings of 7/7/05 during which a drill 
concerning multiple bomb attacks was being staged on that day.

3. Vice President Cheney, Homeland Security Director Michael Chertoff and former
Senator Rick Santorum have all warned of a new 9/11 attack this summer, but are 
giving no evidence in support. Chertoff based his prediction on a ³gut feeling².

4. The May 2007 Presidential Directive NSPD 51 (HSPD 20) addressing ³continuity 
of government² in the event of a massive emergency, includes secret "annexes" 
which are pertinent additional documents. Some US Congressional Committee on 
Homeland Security members such as Rep. Peter DeFazio have written to formally 
request permission to review these secret "annexes" and have twice been denied 
access by the White House.

5. This particular exercise, NOBLE RESOLVE 07-2, includes one scenario involving
an unaccounted for, "loose," ten kiloton nuclear weapon, exactly as Vice 
President Cheney hinted in recent interviews. Department of Homeland Security 
chief Michael Chertoff claims he fears the same.

6. The plummeting support for the GOP has triggered comments from its members 
and analyses of its current political strategy that point to a new 9/11 attack 
as a contributing factor to GOP political salvation. Moreover, it appears that 
legends or back stories are being disseminated to support just such an event.

Transparency concerning NOBLE RESOLVE 07-2 is vital for the public safety of 
everyone in the Lower Columbia River Basin. We call on the planners, directors 
and participants in NOBLE RESOLVE 07-2 to be vigilant and to maintain 
transparency with respect to these military exercises. We also urge citizens and
our elected officials to monitor the activities of participants connected with 
the exercises and alert authorities to any suspicious behavior. These exercises 
have an established pattern of becoming ³live² events. (Please read references 
below.) We recommend that officials of the Ports of Astoria, Longview, Vancouver
and Portland on the Lower Columbia River take extra care in their monitoring and
examination of all shipping on the Lower Columbia River while NOBLE RESOLVE 07-2
is in progress. Finally, we urge all concerned to voice that concern in letters 
and calls to elected officials and civil servants requesting full transparency 
and citizen oversight.

Norman Schwarzkopf: "We went ahead and did an exercise, what's called a command 
post exercise, which is what Internal Look was to test our ability to deal with 
this particular scenario ... Just so happened we were in the middle of 
conducting the Internal Look command post exercise at the same time the crisis 
developed in the gulf."
