OPERATION DARK WINTER 2001
This video was (re-)posted in March 2008 ( media is repeating in 2020/21 the same script as 2001)
On June 22-23, 2001, just under 3 months before 9/11, the U.S. military held a senior-level war game at Andrews Air Force Base called Dark Winter. The scenario of this bio-terrorism drill was designed to simulate a smallpox attack in three states in which one of these states would be Pennsylvania. As a part of this war game, scripted TV news clips were made to help make this drill as realistic as possible.
The Pentagon’s “Operation Dark Winter”: June 2001 Bioterror Exercise Foreshadowed 9/11 and Anthrax Attacks
Coincidence … Or Something More?
On June 22-23, 2001 – some 3 months before 9/11, and 4 months before the Anthrax “attacks” – the U.S. military held a senior-level war game at Andrews Air Force Base called Dark Winter. The scenario of this bio-terrorism drill was designed to simulate a smallpox attack in three states. Numerous congressmen, former CIA director James Woolsey, New York Times reporter Judith Miller (who pushed the Iraq WMD myth, as well as the false link between Iraq and the Anthrax attacks), and anti-terror official Jerome Hauer all participated in the exercise.
As a part of this war game, scripted TV news clips were made to help make this drill as realistic as possible.
At the end of one of these clips, the reporter says:
Iraq might have provided the technology behind the attacks to terrorist groups based in Afghanistan.
Why is this interesting?
Because U.S. officials intentionally linked Iraq to Al Qaeda and 9/11 to justify the Iraq war, even though they knew there was no such connection. (The claim that Iraq is linked to 9/11 has since been debunked by the 9/11 Commission, top government officials, and even – long after they alleged such a link – Bush and Cheney themselves.)
Indeed, Dark Winter participant Woolsey – the former CIA director – swore in court testimony that Saddam Hussein was connected to 9/11.
Similarly, the government tried to falsely blame the anthrax attacks on Iraq as a justification for war:
When Congress was originally asked to pass the Patriot Act in late 2001, the anthrax attacks which occurred only weeks earlier were falsely blamed on spooky Arabs as a way to scare Congress members into approving the bill. Specifically:
- The FBI was actually told to blame Anthrax scare on Al Qaeda by White House officials
And see this.
Dark Winter participants Judith Miller – the New York Times reporter who had long hyped bioterror threats through books and articles – and CIA head Woolsey were two of the loudest voices blaming the Anthrax attacks on Iraq.
Woolsey was an outspoken proponent of war against Iraq even before 9/11.
- Anonymous letters are sent to the media
- Anonymous letters threatened anthrax attacks on the United States
- Iraq and Bin Laden are top suspects
It has been extensively documented that the White House decided to invade Iraq before 9/11:
- Former CIA director George Tenet said that the White House wanted to invade Iraq long before 9/11, and inserted “crap” in its justifications for invading Iraq. Former Treasury Secretary Paul O’Neill – who sat on the National Security Council – also says that Bush planned the Iraq war before 9/11. Top British officials say that the U.S. discussed Iraq regime change even before Bush took office. And in 2000, Cheney said a Bush administration might “have to take military action to forcibly remove Saddam from power.” And see this.
- Cheney made Iraqi’s oil fields a national security priority before 9/11. And the Sunday Herald reported: “Five months before September 11, the US advocated using force against Iraq … to secure control of its oil.” (remember that Alan Greenspan, John McCain, George W. Bush, Sarah Palin, a high-level National Security Council officer and others all say that the Iraq war was really about oil.)
2001 – Operation Dark Winter – simulation of a bio-terrorism attack with resulting blame on Iraq
2020/21 – Event 201 – simulation of Coronavirus pandemic with resulting blame on China and Iran
About the Event 201 exercise
Event 201 was a 3.5-hour pandemic tabletop exercise that simulated a series of dramatic, scenario-based facilitated discussions, confronting difficult, true-to-life dilemmas associated with response to a hypothetical, but scientifically plausible, pandemic. 15 global business, government, and public health leaders were players in the simulation exercise that highlighted unresolved real-world policy and economic issues that could be solved with sufficient political will, financial investment, and attention now and in the future. The exercise consisted of pre-recorded news broadcasts, live “staff” briefings, and moderated discussions on specific topics. These issues were carefully designed in a compelling narrative that educated the participants and the audience.
The Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security, World Economic Forum, and Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation jointly propose these recommendations.
In recent years, the world has seen a growing number of epidemic events, amounting to approximately 200 events annually. These events are increasing, and they are disruptive to health, economies, and society. Managing these events already strains global capacity, even absent a pandemic threat. Experts agree that it is only a matter of time before one of these epidemics becomes global—a pandemic with potentially catastrophic consequences. A severe pandemic, which becomes “Event 201,” would require reliable cooperation among several industries, national governments, and key international institutions.
The Event 201 scenario
Event 201 simulates an outbreak of a novel zoonotic coronavirus transmitted from bats to pigs to people that eventually becomes efficiently transmissible from person to person, leading to a severe pandemic. The pathogen and the disease it causes are modeled largely on SARS, but it is more transmissible in the community setting by people with mild symptoms.
NOTE: Only Few month later the “scenario” turned out to be “a script” implemented in January 2020 and involved these major players: The Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security, World Economic Forum, and Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. The “simulation” was most likely a case of the “predictive programming”.
Here is the timeline:
- January 17, 2020 – The Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security, World Economic Forum, and Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation Call for Public-Private Cooperation for Pandemic Preparedness and Response
Organizations release 7 recommendations in a joint call to action
- October 15, 2019 – Players for Event 201, a pandemic exercise, include global business leaders and prominent government and public health leaders—livestream open to all
- August 21, 2019 – Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security to host Event 201, a global pandemic exercise
Operation Dark Winter 2021
On October 22, presidential candidate Joe Biden mentioned the term “dark winter” during his debate with President Donald Trump. According to some news outlet, Biden on this statement meant to say “extreme coronavirus deaths”. Biden stated in this televised presidential debate:
220,000 Americans dead. If you hear nothing else I say tonight, hear this. Anyone who’s responsible for that many deaths should not remain as president of the United States of America. We’re about to go into a dark winter and he has no plan, Joe Biden Added.
But since when did this term came out and what is it really all about?
Here’s the story: on June 22–23 in 2001, the Johns Hopkins Center for Civilian Biodefense Strategies, in collaboration with the Center for Strategic and International Studies, the Analytic Services Institute for Homeland Security, and the Oklahoma National Memorial Institute for the Prevention of Terrorism, held a senior-level exercise entitled “Dark Winter”.
Much like the Event 201 of October 2019, this is a simulation of a covert smallpox attack on the United States. It was constructed “to examine the challenges that senior-level policy makers would face if confronted with a bioterrorist attack that initiated outbreaks of highly contagious disease”.
The designers, authors, and controllers of this program, namely Tara O’Toole and Thomas Inglesby of the Johns Hopkins Center for Civilian Biodefense Strategies and Randy Larsen and Mark DeMier of ANSER, claimed this exercise was “intended to increase awareness of the scope and character of the threat posed by biological weapons among senior national security experts and to bring about actions that would improve prevention and response strategies”.
What’s more interesting to this is that this simulation happened “3 months before 9/11 and 4 months before the Anthrax attacks”. According to an article by globalresearch.ca:
The scenario of this bio-terrorism drill was designed to simulate a smallpox attack in three states. Numerous congressmen, former CIA director James Woolsey, New York Times reporter Judith Miller (who pushed the Iraq WMD myth, as well as the false link between Iraq and the Anthrax attacks), and anti-terror official Jerome Hauer all participated in the exercise. As a part of this war game, scripted TV news clips were made to help make this drill as realistic as possible. At the end of one of these clips, the reporter says: Iraq might have provided the technology behind the attacks to terrorist groups based in Afghanistan.
Globalresearch.ca also added that some of the main reasons for this were to help justify the “war on terror” by deliberately demonizing Iraq by linking them to 9/11 twin tower attack in New York City. However, in reality, this claim “has since been debunked by the 9/11 Commission, top government officials, and even – long after they alleged such a link – Bush and Cheney themselves”. To provide more understanding on this very significant topic, globalresearch.ca also wrote:
The FBI was actually told to blame Anthrax scare on Al Qaeda by White House officials. High-level government insiders pointed towards Iraq as the source of the anthrax, even though there was absolutely no reason to think that the anthrax had come from Iraq. Dark Winter participants Judith Miller – the New York Times reporter who had long hyped bioterror threats through books and articles – and CIA head Woolsey were two of the loudest voices blaming the Anthrax attacks on Iraq.
Indeed, according to Gary D. Barnett regarding this massive psychological operation:
The only real defense that is valid during this exercise in mass tyranny is total refusal to comply with any and all government mandates. We are in the midst of the largest psychological operation (PSYOP) in the history of mankind.
The newest term being targeted toward the masses is the coming of the “Dark Winter,” which is nothing more than propaganda based lies meant to prepare the sheep for a planned continuation and escalation of this fake pandemic in order to bring about world domination.”
PS Why Bill Gates wants indemnity
Scientists first attempted to develop a coronavirus vaccines after China’s 2002 SARS-CoV outbreak. Teams of US & foreign scientists vaccinated animals with the four most promising vaccines. At first, the experiment seemed successful as all the animals developed a robust antibody response to coronavirus. However, when the scientists exposed the vaccinated animals to the wild virus, the results were horrifying. Vaccinated animals suffered hyper-immune responses including inflammation throughout their bodies terminating with fatal lung infections. Researchers had seen this same “enhanced immune response” during human testing of the failed RSV vaccine tests in the 1960s. Two children died.Offit, Hotez and even Anthony Fauci (in an unguarded moment), have warned that any new coronavirus vaccine could trigger lethal immune reactions when vaccinated people come in contact with the wild virus. Instead of proceeding with caution, Fauci has made the criminally reckless choice to fast track his own vaccine (partially funded by Gates) and 7 Gates vaccines without animal studies that could provide early warning of runaway immune response. Gates is so worried about the danger that he says he won’t distribute his vaccines until governments agree to indemnify him against lawsuits. On Feb 4, when there were only 11 active cases in the USA, Fauci quietly pushed through regulations giving coronavirus vaccine makers full immunity from liability.Here are the studies referenced in the video:2012 Study: Immunization with SARS coronavirus vaccines leads to pulmonary immunopathology on challenge with the SARS virus: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/22536382Federal Register giving liability protection, The PREP Act: https://www.phe.gov/Preparedne…/…/prepact/Pages/COVID19.aspx
- Big Pharma is not a charity – they make huge profits on making vaccines (and Covid tests) – and they are legally exempt from any lawsuits when their vaccines harm or kill people
- It seems Gates and Globalists are planning to eradicate poverty in the world by elimination of the poorest and underprivileged people, using Covid Vaccine…

PS SPARS PANDEMIC Script
The Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security has released a self-guided exercise scenario for public health communicators and risk communication researchers eager to deepen their understanding of the communication dilemmas that could arise when medical countermeasures are developed and distributed during a pandemic.
The SPARS Scenario features an outbreak of the novel SPARS coronavirus first identified in a major US city in 2025. Over a 3-year period, the virus spreads to every US state and more than 40 countries, where case fatality rates vary depending on the capabilities of local health systems. In the United States, an existing drug is repurposed to treat SPARS symptoms while federal regulators work with a pharmaceutical company to fast-track the production of a SPARS vaccine. The response differs in other nations. What follows is a nationwide vaccination effort and lingering strains on the US healthcare sector from a steady stream of patients seeking treatment for serious post-SPARS complications.
