Over 250 federal, state and local officials carried out a counter-terrorism
drill in
Northern California wherein "Red Cell" terrorist pot growers planted a
"bomb," took "hostages," and "commandeered" a major dam to "free" an
imprisoned comrade. The exercise took 18 months to plan and cost
$500,000. Marijuana advocates thought it was kinda stupid. No word if the "terrorists" were giggling as they worked.

Independent journalism has become the last firewall against government and corporate lies. Yet, with frightening regularity, independent media sources are losing funding, closing down or being blacked out by Google and Facebook. Never before has independent media been more endangered. If you believe in Common Dreams, if you believe in people-powered independent media, please support us now and help us fight—with truths—against the lies that would smother our democracy. Please help keep Common Dreams alive and growing. Thank you. -- Craig Brown, Co-founder
