‘You Should Have Expected U.S.’: Series of Attacks Hit Midwest Ahead of Massive Electric Grid Drill

The FBI is offering a $25,000 reward after the third in a series of power grid attacks in Arkansas left 10,000 residents without power over the weekend.

The attacks began back in September:
In the early morning hours of September 29, 2013, officials with Entergy Arkansas reported a fire at its Keo substation located on Arkansas Highway 165 between Scott and England in Lonoke County. Fortunately, there were no injuries and no reported power outages. Investigation has determined that the fire, which consumed the control house at the substation, was intentionally set. The person or persons responsible for this incident inscribed a message on a metal control panel outside the substation which reads, ‘YOU SHOULD HAVE EXPECTED U.S.’ (source)
These attacks are especially troubling considering their timing ahead of a massive joint power grid drill scheduled for next month to include the U.S., Canada and Mexico.

The GridEx II grid security exercise set for November 13-14 will involve FBI antiterrorism units, National Guard, thousands of utility workers and business executives, as well as government officials from all three nations to simulate widespread grid takedown scenarios.

More troubling is a sudden talking point shift to the vulnerability of the U.S. power grid by multiple government officials, including outgoing Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano, who recently issued an ‘open letter’ to her successor warning that a cyber or physical event that takes out the power grid will occur — stating that it is not a question of "if" but "when".

Napolitano is not the only one talking about how a grid attack will forever alter life as we know it, as SHTF Plan recently reported:
We are only one act of madness away from a social cataclysm unlike anything our country has ever known. - Congressman Trent Franks (R-AZ), Senior Member House Armed Service Committee 
EMP is one of the small number of threats that could hold at risk the continued existence of U.S. civil society. - Dr. Robert Hermann, Commissioner US Congress EMP Commission 
Just one violent active region on the sun can cause continent-wide, perhaps even planetary-scale impacts to our critical infrastructure. - John Kappenman, Principal Investigator US Congress EMP Commission 
The likelihood of a severe geo-magnetic event capable of crippling our electric grid is 100%. - Congresswoman Yvette Clarke (D-NY), Senior Member House Homeland Security Committee
If the power grid were to be taken out, it would throw this country into total chaos. Unlike in the times of the Great Depression, when people farmed their own land and grew food gardens, somewhere between 96-98% of the nation is dependent on the other 2-4% for their food. Many people do not keep more than a few days worth of food and water on hand, and survival and preparedness skills aren’t exactly taught in schools these days.

Regardless of how the power grid goes down, the important thing is to make sure you and your family are prepared if or when it does. As Daisy Luther of Organic Prepper wrote, "You’ve been warned".

Mossad and the Neocon Israeli factions in our Government should be the first to be suspect. Instead the Zionists inside at the DHS and the FBI will be trying to involve real Americans in their psychotic war games.

The only reason we are "one act of madness" from anything is the bewildering ignorance and welfare-ridden state of the American public. We put the idiots in office that gave us all these terror drills and what the heck are we doing joint drills with Canada and Mexico for - preparation for the NAU??? No thanks - it ain't workin that well in Europe with the EU now is it???

Doesn't Anonymous always say 'We are legion. Expect Us.'. Perhaps it was them who did it. And by Anonymous, i mean various intelligence agencies of the alpha-bet variety posing as autonomous members of a radical subversive organization that promotes acts of sabotage that are against the interests of a society that is governed by the rule of law.

The comment at 7pm on Oct. 10 is a wise consideration.

And just like every other drill in the past dozen or so years, it will go live, and then the SHTF scenario starts. Take care this doesn't happen this time.

I want to know where Napolitano got her information. Is she actually warning the people or is something else afoot? I don't understand what the reasoning is behind the drills. What will it prove? It seems everytime whatever faction of the US conducts 'drills', there is actually some kind of 'terrorism' event around the same time. I don't like this scenario one bit. >:- |

The message 'You should have expected U.S.' gives me the chills. People prepare! It's gonna get rough. Really, really rough!

I'm not one of those people that thinks the government is planning something nefarious this weekend but I am leery and here is why. When you have that many people running around doing a drill there is bound to be mistakes made. I can only hope those mistakes don't lead to any part of the power grid being shut down. Anyways I will make sure I have extra cash on hand, batteries, flash lights, candles and food just in case the power goes out for a few hours or even a few days.

Don't these "drills" usually occur "coincidentally" the same day of some traumatic violent event?

I don't think this was from Anonymous. Notice it says U.S. NOT US. I smell false flag. Besides, I doubt Anonymous would go after infrastructure, as they are not against the general population and they would know hurting the power grid or somesuch would hurt the very people they are trying to help. No, whenever the general population gets hurt by a "terrorist" act, it is almost always the corrupt elite puppets, CIA, FBI, government officials and even military behind it. The true terrorists always try to pin the harm they inflict upon others to manipulate the public through fear, remember. They will probably use this as "justification" to go activist groups even more harshly now. Bloody lying bastards!

Texas has its own Power Grid and we are not shutting down for a drill.............Good Luck

It's not this weekend, it's Nov. 13-15. That's IF the power can come back up (which the experts say is impossible). It's time to start saying goodbye to the folks you love, just in case. Most won't make it through the first week.
