On 31 March 2016 the US Washington Post (WaPo) ran a short, seemingly insignificant news report about the CIA accidentally leaving some “explosive training material” on a school bus, in Loudon County, Virginia. WaPo was adamant that there was absolutely no danger to the children who were on the bus on 28 and 29 March, after a successful “joint training program at Briar Woods” school during part of spring break. A less orwellian description of “explosive training material” is “bomb stuff.”
Though the CIA does not seem to have an actual Mission Statement, its website makes it quite clear that its Director “shall have no police, subpoena, or law enforcement powers or internal security functions…”, this fact is omitted by the WaPo report.
According to the WaPo piece, the Loudon schools spokesman, Wayde Byard — sounding more like the spokesman for the CIA, than for school children — “said that the CIA indicated the nature of the material but asked the school system not to disclose it,” and that Byard “said law enforcement agencies use school facilities on occasion to conduct realistic training exercises.”
The explosive training material was also placed inside the school. The “training” involved dogs sniffing out the bomb material, which was a complete and total success except for the bomb material that somehow managed to get stuck within the netherworld of the engine, which somehow temporarily severed the sniffing dogs’ olfatory bulbs, so the success should not be diminished by the failure, as it was not the dogs’ fault.
The bomb material — whose description sounds like Composition C-4 — also happened to be the same color of tubing surrounding the engine, making it camouflaged to the eyes of the bus drivers who check under the hood before turning on the ignition. The discovery of the bomb material was made during a routine maintenance inspection by a skilled mechanic with a highly trained eye.
The local sheriff’s office, the fire marshal, and the diligent CIA helped to remove the explosive from the school bus.
The CIA was very very very and sincerely sorry for the unfailure of the successful training exercise.
And then the CIA double-checked its inventory, and reported all of the other bomb material is out of the school buses and the school, and school officials, local law enforcement, and the CIA agreed to suspend these training exercises in schools until “stronger protocols are established” (or the sniffing dogs learn to use neti pots).
The school board, local police, and WaPo are on board with the same CIA that left bomb material on a school bus, overseeing “stronger protocols.”
The school board, the local police, and WaPo have no problem with the CIA breaking the very law which created it, the National Security Act of 1947: “[t]he Agency shall have no police, subpoena, law-enforcement powers of internal-security functions,” nor have any problems with putting the safety of school children at risk.
It does not take any stretching of imagination to suspect that the CIA did not want the bomb material mentioned by name, as that would have forced questions to be raised: What was the size of the explosive, and did it have a detonator attached to it (for purposes of realism of training, of course)?
Here is the destructive capacity of 4.5 lbs / 2.04 kg of C4 — on a bus explicitly used for purposes of bomb testing:
Were US Americans to listen, the people of the Syrian Arab Republic could tell them much, about the many experiences of remote detonation of explosives throughout their country. In addition to being blown up by missiles and mortars fired by ”moderate fsa terrorists” and their incestuous murderous offspring, explosive training material has caused the dismemberment and deaths of several hundreds of Syrians, since the beginning of the foreign-perpetuated crisis.
In June 2013, Dr. Seham Dannoun, a Damascus University professor, got into her car, which contained explosive training material. She required a double leg amputation to save her life.
On 4 May 2015, the Syrian Arab Army captured a truck headed toward central Damascus. It was loaded with 150 kg of C4.
On 2 September 2015, a white van loaded with explosive training material was exploded near the Imad Ali school at Hamam Square, Latakia. Ten people were killed, and dozens injured, many critically.
On 21 February 2016, two cars filled with explosive training materials were remotely detonated, in Homs. Sixty persons were killed.
Had the competent mechanic not discovered the explosive training materials that the successful dog sniffers unsuccessfully did not smell, which were illegally placed on the school bus by the CIA that cannot take proper inventory, might the explosive training materials been accidentally detonated? How many school children in Loudon county would have accidentally been killed? Who would have accidentally been blamed for the accidental detonation?
