Several Blackhawks Land At The Capitol Building In Mysterious Police Exercise


The Capitol Building had a few visitors yesterday.

Several low flying helicopters landed on the grounds of the Capitol Building in a drill that was reported to be orchestrated by the Capitol Police and other Federal officers.

Before the exercise was launched the Capitol Police Department sent out a tweet that stated “Monday morning, June 7, we will be working with our federal, state, and local partners on a routine training exercise on the grounds of the U.S. Capitol”.

The exercise started off with K-9 units being deployed, followed byΒ  EMTs , specialized police, a bomb squad unit, actors, and last but not least several Blackhawk helicopters.

Several Capitol Police officers went on record to say that the last time they saw an exercise as big as this was a few days after 911.

ABC News covered the story and dropped these details:

Working alongside local partners, the U.S. Capitol Police exercise early Monday morning included emergency vehicles coming close to the Capitol and two helicopters flying low across the Washington skyline and then silhouetted against the Capitol dome.

Although Capitol Police regularly train 17 miles away from the Capitol in Cheltenham, Maryland, it’s is the first time they’ve had a full-scale training in years.

The exercise began with K-9 officers patrolling the grounds. Minutes later ambulances filed in, followed by specialized police, emergency, fire and bomb squad units. Several actors were also included.

Several Capitol Police officers told ABC News they’d never seen a similar training on the Capitol grounds. Another long-time Capitol staffer said the last time he’d seen a similar training was shortly after the Sept. 11 attacks.

Many people believe this is more than just an “exercise” and believe it will lead up to an unexpected future event.

One thing is for sure though, I have never heard of the Capitol police issuing “routine exercises” involving Black Hawk helicopters on the Capitol grounds.
