Norway: Why the Police Absence?
Because they were busy training for an event with the exact magnitude and scope of the killings that took place on July 22, 2011.
Original Norwegian story here.
For four days in advance, and also the same Friday that the attack was carried out, police trained on an ongoing terror campaign that was approximately equal to the situation that 22 police officers in the emergency squad confronted with at Utøya.
Aftenposten confirmed from key sources in the management of the Oslo police that exercise was terminated at 3PM that same Friday.
Why is it that the Norwegian police were training for an event that happened literally minutes after their training was complete?
This is an odd story and presents a bit of a mystery that I’m sure many people will start wondering about.
