Back in the day, we had military drills in San Francisco featuring marine mammals, like “Golden Guardian 2010,” for instance.
I remember as if it were yesterday…
“Golden Guardian 2010 will be the sixth Full Scale Exercise (FSE) in the Governor’s Golden Guardian Exercise Series since 2004. The theme of Golden Guardian 2010 is terrorist attacks in multiple ports throughout California. The FSE will be aligned with the National Level Exercise, NLE10 (Improvised Nuclear Device in FEMA Region IX), and will take place over several days in May 2010.”
O.K. then. Joe Eskenazi has a full report with video.
