There was a thread here a few months ago.
I heard about it and may have posted on it here on Free Republic
that we havent heard about the conclusion before now is BIT troublesome given how easy it was for many of us to determined what happened
vandals dont often strike at various types of targets at the same location..
doing so indicates this wasnt random hooliganism
severing fiber optic cables is SORT of indicative of real serious planning...
America demands Justice for the Fallen of Benghazi!
More likely union thugs IMO. Earlier thread here
Could be the beginning of the new Obama false flag. You’ll
know when they start calling J-walking a “domestic”
Probe? ... Much like the first Twin Towers single explosion?
Just was I was thinking/
I heard about it, as did many Freepers. The MSM called it simple vandalism.
The real question is, "Why is the MSM picking it up NOW?"
BTW: The Wall Street Journal has an excellent article on this today. The rest of the media coverage may be because of the Wall Street Journal article. Which still begs the question, WHY REPORT IT NOW?
There was a Freeper who reported this long ago. I was wondering why is was not mainstream. Now is makes even more sense. How slow the wheels of “progress” roll.
More arrests expected over planned terrorist attack
Note the date: Broadcast: 24/04/2004
“MAXINE MCKEW: Two arrests in the space of two weeks, but more are expected over plans for a major terrorist attack in Australia.
Yesterday, a Sydney man was arrested and charged with planning an attack on Australia’s national electricity grid.
The arrests are part of an alleged terrorist cell, based at Lakemba in Sydney’s south-west.
John Stewart reports.”
Another “old” one, still relevant, from 2002.
Cyber-Attacks by Al Qaeda Feared
” A forensic summary of the investigation, prepared in the Defense Department, said the bureau found “multiple casings of sites” nationwide. Routed through telecommunications switches in Saudi Arabia, Indonesia and Pakistan, the visitors studied emergency telephone systems, electrical generation and transmission, water storage and distribution, nuclear power plants and gas facilities.
Some of the probes suggested planning for a conventional attack, U.S. officials said. But others homed in on a class of digital devices that allow remote control of services such as fire dispatch and of equipment such as pipelines. More information about those devices — and how to program them — turned up on al Qaeda computers seized this year, according to law enforcement and national security officials. “
Multiple snipers spent 20 minutes taking out 17 transformers. They fired at the oil tanks in the cooling systems, draining them of fluid and causing them to burn out.
The media called it vandalism. And the public was soothed.
So much for that “Never Forget” song and dance.
THE BLAZE.com: "WAS MYSTERIOUS ATTACK ON CALIF. POWER STATION A 'DRESS REHEARSAL' FOR MUCH LARGER ASSAULT ON U.S. ELECTRICAL GRID?" by Dave Urbanski (SNIPPET: "Although the fact that the still-unsolved attack on a power station near San Jose occurred just a handful of hours after the Boston Marathon bombing -- and apparently raised a few eyebrows initially -- its ride in the public eye has been decidedly under the radar to date.")

“...what difference, at this point, does it make”
Regime talking point
Real terrorism is never hyped in the Corporate Media. There are many, many bombings and other terrorist acts a year in the US, usually committed by envirowackos, that never make the national news. The government and the Corporate Media only hype events that they can use for social engineering and population control purposes.
There is literally no way to protect every single electrical substation in the US from some yahoo shooting up the equipment and driving off.
“This attack happened in April of last year. Why did we not hear about it?”
For the same reason Ft. Hood was “workplace violence.”
Makes Obama’s muslim buddies look bad.
