Sniper Attack On Power Station "the most significant incident of domestic terrorism involving the grid that has ever occurred"

Vatic Note:  If my suspicions are true, this is where the evil ones deceptions come through so very well hidden.  Notice how this is automatically viewed as a domestic terrorist attack and how long has the ADL and SPLC of Homeland Security been calling Christians "Domestic Terrorists"?  How long and before anyone else, have they been saying there is a major civil war coming? 

They are setting up another Lincoln type situation and preparing us to accept whatever they do by brainwashing us in advance, so we will follow their lead on fighting these so called American domestic terrorists.  Anyone who has watched the ME rebellions carefully, can see the exact same pattern occurring here as they did there in the ME countries. THAT is called "mass mind control manipulation", to achieve the end they want, which is US DIVIDED  and half of us defending those evil satanists doing these dirty deeds.

They  lead us by the hand,  brainwash us with day after day mantra's about "domestic terrorists" who are Christians,  and then one day, "someone", with obvious black ops training does what is described below which resembles what the DHS has been feeding us in what Domestic terrorism would look like.  

This is no different than what happened in the Middle east countries.  Bogus rebels are set up, ( in America, its bogus Domestic terrorist christians), acts are war gamed on a small level BEFORE the real event they have planned.  Notice we put up a blog that shows how perfectly matched the flyers were in in the Middle east and ones found in rebellion states elsewhere.  That was a mistake on the bad guys part, since that showed a universal central source for all this rebellion. 

The only other explanation for this below would be that we have extroops that have the expertise to do this below and are doing it to hurt the bad guys.  So the serious question becomes,  "Who does this below really hurt"?  If not them, then who?  It would be us, the American people, which then easily and deductively leads us to know this is another false flag to scare those tech nerds in Silicon valley.  

That prevents the tech nerds from leading us in any resistance movement.  The tech nerds have the creative ability to do so, if they so wished.  But I think they are gone, sold out, and desperately hanging onto what ever they have right now.  Read this below and see which you think it is.

Sniper Attack On Power Station "the most significant incident of domestic terrorism involving the grid that has ever occurred"

Was an attack last April on an electric power station near San Jose, Calif., the work of vandals or something far more dangerous — domestic terrorism or a trial run by an individual or organization bent on damaging the nation's electric grid?

The Wall Street Journal, picking up from an earlier report by , explores that question Wednesday about what happened at PG&E Corp.'s Metcalf transmission substation — an event that has received relatively little attention until now.

The top of the Journal's story grabs your attention:

"The attack began just before 1 a.m. on April 16 last year, when someone slipped into an underground vault not far from a busy freeway and cut telephone cables.

"Within half an hour, snipers opened fire on a nearby electrical substation. Shooting for 19 minutes, they surgically knocked out 17 giant transformers that funnel power to Silicon Valley. A minute before a police car arrived, the shooters disappeared into the night.npr(blog)

Threat to the grid? Details emerge of sniper attack on power station - Fox News-2 hours ago

Newly reported details about a 52-minute sniper attack on a central California electrical substation last year are raising concerns from Capitol Hill and beyond, amid questions over whether it was the work of terrorists.

The April 16, 2013, attack had not been widely publicized until The Wall Street Journal reported new details in a story on Wednesday. The attack reportedly started when at least one person entered an underground vault to cut telephone cables, and attackers fired more than 100 shots into Pacific Gas & Electric’s Metcalf transmission substation, knocking out 17 transformers. Electric officials were able to avert a blackout, but it took 27 days to repair the damage.

The FBI doesn’t think the incident was a terror attack, an agency spokesman told the Journal. However, Jon Wellinghoff, chairman of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission at the time, disagrees.

Wellinghoff, a now-retired George W. Bush appointee, called it “the most significant incident of domestic terrorism involving the U.S. power grid that has ever occurred.”

No arrests have been made in the case. But the Republican-led House Energy and Commerce Committee said Wednesday that lawmakers continue to follow the probe and that protecting the grid remains a top priority.

"We are aware of the attack and continue to monitor the investigation closely,” a committee spokeswoman told FoxNews.com. “Committee staff has been briefed by agency officials and industry representatives. The security and reliability of the grid is a pressing concern, and we will continue our work to mitigate all emerging threats." 

Wellinghoff, who spoke to the Journal, based his conclusion that this was terrorism on the analysis of experts he brought to the crime scene. The analysis pointed to the shell casings having no fingerprints and evidence that the shooting positions had been pre-arranged.

Wellinghoff went public with the story after briefing federal agencies, Congress and the White House, citing national security concerns and fear that electric-grid sites don’t have adequate protection.

In addition, retired PG&E executive Mark Johnson said at an industry gathering a few months ago that he feared the attack was a dress rehearsal for a larger event, according to the Journal.

The utility company responded to a call seeking comment by referring FoxNews.com to a statement from the Edison Electric Institute.

"The industry takes its role as critical infrastructure providers very seriously," said Scott Aaronson, the institute's senior director of national security policy. "Publicizing clearly sensitive information about critical infrastructure protection endangers the safety of the American people and the integrity of the grid.”

Joy Ditto, a vice president with the American Public Power Association, told FoxNews.com about a recent meeting on Capitol Hill that dealt specifically with the attack and included a bipartisan group of senators, industry executives and federal agencies.

She said utility companies have been able to prevent such attacks in large part because they share information with related parties.

However, she also said the meeting, which covered a broad range of topics, concluded with a commitment from executives to keep the senators better informed and a desire for additional legislation to legally protect those who share information about issues like attacks and disaster preparation.

“But we’d prefer not to see more regulations,” she said.

Though the attack on the San Jose substation didn’t cause a blackout, isolated incidents have in fact caused major problems on the U.S. electric grid.

In 2003, for example, downed trees toppled transmission lines, creating a series of blackouts across Canada and the eastern U.S. that lasted for days.  (VN: that is because the grid was privatized and the company that took it over put nothing into maintenance and repair and the grid simply gave out.  I will try to find the write up on that from back then.)

Security for the grid has long been a concern for government and the utility industry, but most recently the focus has been on the risk of cyber attacks.

Mike Hyland, an APPA senior vice president, argued Wednesday the industry indeed took notice of the attack but has been on high alert for decades -- responding to such issues as the Y2K computer issue, the 9/11 terror attacks, Hurricane Katrina and most recently Superstorm Sandy.  (VN: how about that, and every single one of them a false flag.  Maybe they should begin monitoring Homeland Security that seems to always be around or doing drills in advance of the real McCoy attack that always happens in the end. )

“The industry has done a good job of keeping security at the forefront,” he said.
