Exclusive: Inside The Military’s Top Secret Plans If Coronavirus Cripples the Government

Source: Newsweek.

I suspect most Americans are not well informed about continuity of government plans that are already in place. This Newsweek piece serves an educational purpose in that context.

Still, I can’t help noting an ambiguity. That is, the existing plans as described in the article could, conceivably, be implemented without public announcement. Martial Law could be in effect without anybody noticing.

I doubt such a wild improbability has occurred, but you never know. Have fun.

Sad news. I first became aware of Pacepa during the early Obama administration. His work and commentary profoundly changed my thinking in a lot of different areas. For example, I had never credited the McCarthy era as having even the slightest of redeemable virtues, but Pacepa convinced me that the threat of Soviet influence in America was both real and deep, even if McCarthy’s machinations and demagoguery were not.
