#rsrh No-fly zone over Chicago for NATO summit.

It’s actually not outrageous that there’s a no-fly zone, or that it will be enforced with missiles, if necessary: NATO summits are prime terrorist targets, and 9/11 demonstrated that terrorists can find volunteers who will fly a plane into a building.  It’s just that, up until yesterday, I would have used ‘terrorists’ to exclusively mean ‘foreign terrorists.’  But that was before it came out that there was at least one domestic bomb plot originating from the folks over at the anarchist/Black Bloc/antiglobo/Occupy movement.

Really, anybody think that the really nasty blackshirts can’t find somebody already wound up about the 99% – and keep twisting his or her key until the spring goes sproing? – Because I think that they can find somebody.  It all depends on whether this administration can keep those people too scared to even think to try.

    So now, apparently, 4 out of 5 of those arrested were in OWS Cleveland. What I find interesting in the article linked by Drudge was that the FBI wasn’t targeting an individual terrorist, they were specifically attempting to infiltrate OWS, AS AN ORGINIZATION!

  • countrydoc says:

    I made my point badly. Please let me rephrase. The FBI was not tracking an individual who just happened to be a part of OWS Cleveland (Just a coincidence!). They were infiltrating OWS Cleveland itself, possibly based on intel. OWS was their target.

    How long does it take to get to Chicago from Seattle?

  • acat says:

    Jack Savage – about a 4 hour flight, IIRC. Been a while. 2 days by car if you push.

    One point – if they’re going to “enforce with missiles”, I do hope they route most of the traffic out over Lake Michigan. A quick perusal of Google Maps or Google Earth should give a pretty good idea of the population density and diameter. Everything from the lake out to 90/94 is pretty much dense/urban, 90/94 to 294 is dense/suburban, 294 to 355 is relatively green suburban .. but it doesn’t get to farm country for another 15-20 miles….
