A North American Aerospace Defense Command defense exercise is scheduled for Wednesday in the D.C. area.

Operation Noble Eagle is expected to take place between 4 p.m. and 6 p.m. During the exercise, NORAD said helicopter activity is likely to be visible. According to a NORAD statement, “two U.S. Coast Guard MH-65D Dolphin helicopters will be employed during the exercise. Some portions of the exercise could involve flights at approximately 2,500 feet above ground level.”

The objective is to test responses, systems and equipment.

NORAD said it “continuously conducts exercises with a variety of scenarios, including airspace restriction violations, hijackings and responding to unknown aircraft.”

ONE started as the military response to the terrorist attack of Sept. 11, 2001, to place a greater emphasis on the surveillance and control of airspace over Canada and the U.S.

This post seems to have stirred up the hornet's nest on Twitter.

Well, yeah... the last famous "NORAD military exercise" was on September 11, 2001.

That's not an alarming comparison at all. I think this is likely a round up, if those helos come down to ground level.

The recent one in LA, California was cover for Delta to go blow out every window in the Nxium cult building and they brought out several containers in MOP gear. They were not messing around.
Probably 50 spec ops men hit that one small building but its no coincidence Congressman Adam Schiff owns the buildings around it and a Subway tunnel is under the other side of the street.
They flew the bad stuff out in Blackhawk choppers that could do air refueling so these were not private contract men.
