Which is why officials have to stick to "accident" all the way. Oh look,

They need to make up their minds which excuse they are going with: (1) The White House piped up immediately saying it was "purely a state exercise", which is has to be a lie if what the actual state officials of Hawaii say is true that (2) it was definitely human error and that person has been re-assigned etc. Somebody telling a fib........

Notice how Trump has been weirdly and freakily silent about the whole affair - cat got his twitter finger? 5 minutes don't go by without him being a twit - it's just not like him not to be beaking off about something.

Edited to note previous poster's comment about something Trump tweeted - I have not noticed any tweet reports from him about the media or anything else to do with the missile warning - only one I saw after it happened was him slamming Wolff!

What gives?

We all know that if a garbage truck in Alaska backs into a fire hydrant and a sewer plugs up in Texas, it's Trumps fault.

You are asking the wrong question.

Now that's job security! In the real world, that person would not have a job right now.

He only did what he was told to do. If you believe my theory.

Apparently he clicked on the wrong box on a Computer screen. Who has never done that?

They claim they are going to make it so 2 people have to authorize it.

Kind of like when you want to buy a new electronic toy.

Hey Honey is it OK if I push this button?

Seriously, just to join a facebook group I have to answer questions.

Apparently the same thing happened in Guam in August in 2017. Coinkydink?

The texts sent during the 38 minute crisis are really heart rendering.

Trump's time line through the 38 minute crisis

http://www.cnn.com/2018/01/15/politics/ ... index.html

HE KNEW 10 minutes in and let people panic for 27 minutes without sending out a single TWITTER saying it's a false alarm.

What is wrong with him?

Because it was planned. Just like in Guam, to see how the population would really react.

Ummm, Ya, "false" alarm.

All the alarms are being tested in real time. Guam, Hawaii, Japan.

Only Japan corrected their "mistake" within minutes, not 38 minutes. :up:
