Thanks, Drake. Heads up, everyone. Of course, they could move that drill date. ~ BP

<National Report>Atlanta, GA–Residents of the Atlanta area are seeking answers this evening following the publishing of a Craigslist ad seeking crisis actors for a “simulation of a mass casualty exercise.” The ad was posted at approx 7:45pm EST and is seeking individuals to take part in a simulated “large scale disaster” June 27-29th. [emphasis mine]
The U.S. government is known to use “professional actors” to depict victims in simulations of large scale attacks. According to an ABC News, “professional actors play the roles of victims” followed by media coverage to disseminate the supposed “disaster”.
National Report spoke with Nathan Bowles, founder of the website CrisisActors.org, who had the following to say: “The government hires crisis actors for a variety of reasons. This could be nothing more than a routine exercise, or could be something more nefarious in nature. Similar ads were identified following the incident at Sandy Hook, the bombing at the Boston Marathon and the mass shooting at Fort Hood. Our governments use of these types of crisis actors is well documented and should not be taken lightly.”
