    It took 38 mins for the Hawaiian govt to put out a retraction and say this was a mistake, unsatisfactory!

    HAWAII - THIS IS A FALSE ALARM. THERE IS NO INCOMING MISSILE TO HAWAII. I HAVE CONFIRMED WITH OFFICIALS THERE IS NO INCOMING MISSILE.

    Opps,,

    But the Test to see if Fear-mongering works was successful.
    Liberty is lost through complacency and a subservient mindset. When we accept or even welcome automobile checkpoints, random searches, mandatory identification cards, and paramilitary police in our streets, we have lost a vital part of our American heritage. America was born of protest, revolution, and mistrust of government. Subservient societies neither maintain nor deserve freedom for long.

    The Hawaii public employee who plunged the state into chaos by accidentally sending out an incoming-missile emergency alert Saturday has been re-assigned, according to reports.

    The unnamed emergency-department worker will not be fired because he made an honest mistake, said Hawaii Emergency Management Agency spokesman Richard Rapoza to the Washington Post.

    “Part of the problem was it was too easy — for anyone — to make such a big mistake,” Rapoza said. “We have to make sure that we’re not looking for retribution, but we should be fixing the problems in the system. … I know that it’s a very, very difficult situation for him.”

    The agency has already put in place new safeguards to prevent such a misfire — including a “cancel” button that will immediately send out corrective alerts when an erroneous warning is issued, officials said Sunday.

    Of all the ways to die, being vaporized directly underneath a nuke is the most painless. I reckon hiding your kids in storm drains is only prolonging their death in the real thing.

    Media hyping this one all day. Somebody pushed the wrong button at twitter. $#@!ing hilarious.

    They will go through those motions as part of the cover story but this was not a mistake.

    So was it an Obama admin. holdover trying to stir up $#@! on the current administration?
    Theye have refused their Assent to Laws, the most wholesome and necessary for the public good.

    Theye have erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harass our people and eat out their substance.

    Theye kept among us, in times of peace, Standing Armies

    Theye have combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our constitution,

    For protecting them, by a mock Trial from punishment for any Murders which they should commit on the Inhabitants of these States:

    For cutting off our Trade with parts of the world:

    For imposing Taxes on us without our Consent:

    For depriving us in many cases, of the benefit of Trial by Jury:

    Theye plundered and destroyed the lives of our people.

    Theye are at this time transporting Armies of Mercenaries to compleat the works of death, desolation, and tyranny, already begun with circumstances of Cruelty & Perfidy scarcely paralleled in the most barbarous ages, and totally unworthy of a civilized nation.

    Feh... are you serious?

    This will pass into the mists, challenged in no substantive way. Were the people of Hawaii to take real action, I'd amend my opinion. As things stand, I am confident there will be no plate of crow to eat, which is the real pity. You know things are bad when someone such as myself wishes to be justly regarded as the village idiot.

    Any heads that roll will be those of relative innocence and no consequence whatsoever to the governing orthodoxy.

    Think about it in some depth: if this cannot bring a population to rise in fury to strike down that which so clearly treats them in such shabby disregard, I cannot readily envision what might. Thirty seven minutes of thinking there are warheads inbound must seem like that many eternities. Imagine the thoughts and emotions racing through parents for their children. Those same people will fail to rise and take care of business. I suppose they deserve the abuse of the yokes placed about their necks.

    This leads my inner software engineer to wonder how their systems are designed, that a mere changing of the guard could lead to this sort of result. The only other possibility is that the man who set this fiasco into motion did so with knowledge and intent, in which case he should spend many years in Leavenworth doing the rocks thing. From a GUI design standpoint, there should be at least three levels of confirmation, properly formatted, through which one must traverse before such messages go out into the wild. Proper design and implementation of such a filter is not particularly difficult. If it is missing, some very serious questions should arise. If not, well...

I can barely imagine that systems such as early warning would be designed so haphazardly as to allow for an error such as this to occur by "accident". That this is being so peddled leaves me inclined to side with Jones. The claim reeks of bull$#@!.

    I will say one other thing about such systems: I cannot for the life of me imagine that such a message could be sent without alerts popping up in splash screens on every terminal in the facility in question. I further cannot imagine that such messages would not show up at DoD and possibly the White House itself. It's not as if this was a report that Sgt. Bilko has a nosebleed.

    This is also why the official story about Behghazi is a lie. When an embassy puts out an SOS, every US embassy on the planet gets a copy. Every top-tier military terminal receives it, as does State, DoD, and so on. That is how these sorts of messages operate. Both civilian and military bodies are alerted, worldwide.

    That this went on for 37 minutes reeks either of malicious intent, or bottomless incompetence. I am more inclined at this time toward the former.

    It will be very interesting to see how Trump responds to this, materially speaking.
