O.C. politicians on display at terrorism exercise in Anaheim

When is terrorism a spectator sport? When Republicans are involved of course. A bus and several cars were blown up today in Anaheim as a number of police and fire agencies, as well as Homeland Security, participated in exercises that cost $1.7 million. There were drills in other parts of the state as well.

Assemblyman Chuck DeVore sent out an email denoting the many politicians that showed up in Anaheim for the anti-terrorist training exercise. Here are a few excerpts from DeVore’s email:

Mayor Curt Pringle, the host of this major preparedness event was in the stands, as was Anaheim councilmember Lucille Kring, City of Orange Mayor Carolyn Cavecche, Mission Viejo Major Gail Reavis, and Buena Park Councilman Art Brown. Earlier I saw Anaheim councilmember Harry Sidhu while later I saw Orange County Supervisor Chris Norby.

Officials from the State of California in Anaheim today included Matt Bettenhausen, California director of Homeland Security, and Brigadier General Jack Hagan, the head of the volunteer State Military Reserve force and officials from the Governor
