I'm sorry Eggs, but you need to improve your reading comprehension skills. The following excerpts from the article make it perfectly clear that this was NOT a real event. In fact, the first sentence of the second paragraph clearly states that the simulation tookplace over a TWO DAY PERIOD:

June 22-23, 2001, nearly three months before the attack that toppled New York’s World Trade towers, the United States conducted a major simulation of a terrorist smallpox attack against three American cities.

The exercise took place at Andrews Air Force Base in Maryland...

Former U.S. Senator Sam Nunn of Georgia played the President of the United States, Governor Frank Keating of Oklahoma played himself, five senior journalists who worked for major news organizations participated in mock news briefings, and a number of other participants played various key government positions ranging from the Director of Central Intelligence to key Government health advisors.

Although the exercise took only two days, it simulated a time span of two weeks occurring between December 9-22, 2002.

Etc. etc. etc.

Next time, please do yourself and everyone else a favor, and actually READ an article before crying hogwash.
