    Default Biden's Dark Winter ?

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Operation_Dark_Winter

    It was kind of chilling when Biden twice mentioned the dark winter coming at the debate. Operation Dark Winter was the code name for a senior-level bio-terrorist attack simulation conducted from June 22–23, 2001. It was designed to carry out a mock version of a covert and widespread smallpox attack on the United States. Expect anything

    Trump replied it wasn't going to happen.
    Looks like the progs are/were planning another bioweapon release.

    There was a Homeland Security "National War College" website about a new terrorism course that was scheduled to begin on 9-11-2001 !!

    One of those terrorism courses was called "Dark Winter"

    Right after 9-11, I copied the website's info [partly pasted below] and posted it on several forums. But as usual, I received no meaningful response.

    Here is the website's detailed info about the "Dark Winter" terrorism course:

    Topics Ten, Eleven & Twelve

    DARK WINTER

    Tuesday
    13, 20, 27 November 2001
    1530-1730

    DARK WINTER is an exercise originally designed to highlight the challenges that Federal and state leaders would face during a major attack on the American homeland. Several scenarios were examined, but the exercise developers, the ANSER Institute for Homeland Security and the Johns Hopkins Center for Civilian Biodefense Studies, decided that a bioattack during an international crisis and overseas military deployment would best demonstrate the deficiencies and fault lines. Many homeland defense/security exercises focus on consequence management. DARK WINTER creates a situation where senior leaders must face the challenges of crisis management, consequence management and international response in parallel, not sequence.

    Goals and Objectives:

    · Consider impact of a biological attack on US national security
    · Examine State and Federal reaction to a crisis that is simultaneously local, national, and global in scope
    · Evaluate life and death decisions in a resource constrained environment
    · Address information management needs and the role of the media
    · Handle ethical, political, cultural, economic, operational and legal challenges

    Students will be assigned roles during week four and will need to research the various public laws, policies, doctrines, assets and capabilities of the organizations they will represent during the exercise.

    Required Readings:

    Thanks for additional info. I think it's clear that this wasn't a benign comment from Biden.

    Needless to say, I too was taken aback by Biden's "Dark Winter" remark and immediately connected it with the National War College's 2001 terrorism course that was scheduled to begin on 9-11-2001.... the last "Dark Winter" part scheduled to begin November 2001.

    Thanks for posting the video clip.

    Biden used the phrase "dark winter" TWICE [and Trump responded by repeating the term, "dark winter"] when referring to a question about coronavirus [which is local, national and global] and a vaccine.

    The original scheduled November 2001 Dark Winter exercise was to be a biological attack that is part of a global crisis.

    Goals and Objectives:

    · Consider impact of a biological attack on US national security
    · Examine State and Federal reaction to a crisis that is simultaneously local, national, and global in scope

    The eerie thing is... the "introduction" of the "National War College" terrorism course was scheduled for 9-11-2001.

    What if the 9-11-2001 attack/fall of the World Trade Center towers [the first tower's address was "One World Trade Center" and the rebuilt "Freedom Tower" is also called the "One World Trade Center"!!] was the "introduction"... and the upcoming "local, national, global" "Dark Winter" crisis is the grand finale ?!
