Visoko militarizirani Washington uoči inauguracije Bajdena#8217s

Ograde sa namotanom bodljikavom žicom, sigurnosni punktovi, barikade i teško naoružani stražari ono su što biste očekivali u vojnom kampu za ratnu zonu, a ne u centru Washingtona. Ali ovo su samo neke od mjera koje su uvedene u pripremi za inauguraciju novoizabranog predsjednika Joea Bidena sljedeće sedmice.

Federalne vlasti saopćile su da prate#8220obuhvatnu ” količinu “ u vezi sa mrežnim ćaskanjem ” o potencijalnim prijetnjama inauguraciji, uključujući oružane proteste, potencijalne prijetnje povezane s probojem Kapitola i druge vrste potencijalnih prijetnji.

Utvrđivanje grada, posebno oko Bijele kuće i Kapitola SAD -a, počelo je proteklih dana i očekuje se da će se povećati blizu 20. januara.

Video zapisi novinara, radnika i stanovnika u tom području prikazuju zatvaranje ulica, radnike koji postavljaju kilometre barikada i ograde, trgovine i urede su zatrpani daskama i povećano prisustvo vojske. Vojna vozila mogu se vidjeti parkirana na ulicama grada, a naoružani stražari provjeravaju identifikaciju ljudi koji izlaze i ulaze u grad.

Zaključani grad razdvojen je na “zelenu ” i “ crvenu ” zonu kao dio predsjedničkog inauguralnog pododbora 2021 ’ transportnog plana. Tajna služba SAD -a objavila je popis svih zatvorenih ulica na svojoj web stranici, od kojih su mnoge počele 16. januara u 6 ujutro, a planirano je da završe u 6. januara 21. januara. Vašington se takođe zatvara 19. januara u 6 ujutro.

Čak 25.000 pripadnika Nacionalne garde iz svih 50 država, tri teritorije i okruga Columbia bit će stacionirano u gradu sljedeće sedmice, potvrdila je američka vojska, što je povećanje od 5.000 u odnosu na broj ranije ove sedmice. Broj gardista poslanih u Washington premašuje broj američkih snaga u Afganistanu, koji je smanjen na 2.500, rekao je Pentagon 15. januara.

Pripadnici Nacionalne garde dobili su ovlaštenje da budu naoružani 12. januara kako bi podržali provođenje zakona na Kapitoliju i u gradu, navodi se u saopćenju Nacionalne garde DC -a. Odobrenje je uslijedilo nakon zahtjeva federalnih vlasti. Trupe su 24 sata na straži u američkom Kapitolu, a trupe van dužnosti snimljene su kako spavaju u hodnicima.

Povećani broj pripadnika Nacionalne garde bit će tu kako bi nadopunio već pojačane snage iz FBI-a, Tajne službe SAD-a, Odjela za domovinsku sigurnost, Kapitolske policije SAD-a i Metropolitanske policije DC-a.

Prije nego što je dao ostavku na dužnost, bivši vršilac dužnosti ministra vanjske sigurnosti Chad Wolf rekao je u saopćenju od 11. januara da je naložio američkoj tajnoj službi da započne operacije Nacionalnog događaja posebne sigurnosti za inauguraciju od 13. januara.

Uprava za sigurnost transporta (TSA) također je povećala svoje sigurnosne mjere uoči inauguracije. Administrator TSA -e David Pekoske rekao je u saopćenju da agencija trenutno obrađuje stotine imena sa agencijama za provođenje zakona u sklopu procjene rizika. Agencija će također dodati dodatne slojeve sigurnosti na sva tri aerodroma u DC-u.

“Ti sigurnosni slojevi uključuju više psećih timova za provođenje zakona i otkrivanje eksploziva, nasumičnu provjeru vrata, povećan broj saveznih maršala na određenim letovima i dodatne timove za vidljivu intermodalnu prevenciju i odgovor kako bi se osiguralo veće prisustvo sigurnosti u određenim čvorištima željezničkog prijevoza, &# 8221 Pekoske je rekao.

Gradonačelnica DC -a Muriel Bowser i sigurnosni zvaničnici također su pozvali Amerikance da ostanu kod kuće kako bi virtualno gledali inauguraciju.

"Znamo da je ovo pravi zahtjev za našu javnu sigurnost i naše javno zdravlje", rekla je 15. januara.

Zvaničnici D.C. -a procjenjuju da će inauguracija koštati oko 45 miliona dolara zbog povećanih mjera sigurnosti. Do sada je Kongres odobrio 34,9 miliona dolara, rekao je Christopher Rodriguez, direktor DCC -ove Agencije za nacionalnu sigurnost i upravljanje u hitnim slučajevima, na konferenciji za novinare 15. januara.

Rodriguez je rekao da je iznos imao u vidu deficite koje je okrug imao zbog#povećanog broja demonstracija prvih izmjena i dopuna#8221 viđenih tokom 2020.

U 2017. godini, sigurnost za inauguraciju predsjednika Donalda Trumpa koštala je oko 27 miliona dolara, prema Rodriguezu - oko 7 miliona dolara više od 19,995 miliona dolara odobrenih od strane Kongresa.

Pripadnici Nacionalne garde dobili su ovlaštenje da budu naoružani 12. januara kako bi podržali provođenje zakona na Kapitoliju i u gradu, navodi se u saopćenju Nacionalne garde DC -a. Odobrenje je uslijedilo nakon zahtjeva federalnih vlasti. Trupe su 24 sata na straži u američkom Kapitolu, a trupe van dužnosti snimljene su kako spavaju u hodnicima.

Povećani broj pripadnika Nacionalne garde bit će tu kako bi nadopunio već pojačane snage iz FBI-a, Tajne službe SAD-a, Odjela za domovinsku sigurnost, Kapitolske policije SAD-a i Metropolitanske policije DC-a.

Prije nego što je dao ostavku na dužnost, bivši vršilac dužnosti ministra vanjske sigurnosti Chad Wolf rekao je u saopćenju od 11. januara da je naložio američkoj tajnoj službi da započne operacije Nacionalnog događaja posebne sigurnosti za inauguraciju od 13. januara.

Uprava za sigurnost transporta (TSA) također je povećala svoje sigurnosne mjere uoči inauguracije. Administrator TSA -e David Pekoske rekao je u saopćenju da agencija trenutno obrađuje stotine imena sa agencijama za provođenje zakona u sklopu procjene rizika. Agencija će također dodati dodatne slojeve sigurnosti na sva tri aerodroma u DC-u.

“Ti sigurnosni slojevi uključuju više psećih timova za provođenje zakona i otkrivanje eksploziva, nasumično provjeravanje vrata, povećan broj federalnih maršala na određenim letovima i dodatne vidljive intermodalne prevencije i timove za pružanje veće sigurnosti u određenim čvorištima željezničkog prijevoza, &# 8221 Pekoske je rekao.

Gradonačelnica DC -a Muriel Bowser i sigurnosni zvaničnici također su pozvali Amerikance da ostanu kod kuće kako bi virtualno gledali inauguraciju.

"Znamo da je ovo pravi zahtjev za našu javnu sigurnost i naše javno zdravlje", rekla je 15. januara.

Zvaničnici D.C. -a procjenjuju da će inauguracija koštati oko 45 miliona dolara zbog povećanih mjera sigurnosti. Do sada je Kongres odobrio 34,9 miliona dolara, rekao je Christopher Rodriguez, direktor DCC -ove Agencije za nacionalnu sigurnost i upravljanje u hitnim slučajevima, na konferenciji za novinare 15. januara.

Rodriguez je rekao da je iznos imao u vidu deficite koje je okrug imao zbog#povećanog broja demonstracija prvih izmjena i dopuna#8221 viđenih tokom 2020.

U 2017. godini, sigurnost za inauguraciju predsjednika Donalda Trumpa koštala je oko 27 miliona dolara, prema Rodriguezu - oko 7 miliona dolara više od 19,995 miliona dolara odobrenih od strane Kongresa.


Visoko militarizirani Washington uoči inauguracije Bajdena#8217s

Ograde sa namotanom bodljikavom žicom, sigurnosni punktovi, barikade i teško naoružani stražari ono su što biste očekivali u vojnom kampu za ratnu zonu, a ne u centru Washingtona. Ali ovo su samo neke od mjera koje su uvedene u pripremi za inauguraciju novoizabranog predsjednika Joea Bidena sljedeće sedmice.

Federalne vlasti saopćile su da prate#8220obuhvatnu ” količinu “ u vezi sa mrežnim ćaskanjem ” o potencijalnim prijetnjama inauguraciji, uključujući oružane proteste, potencijalne prijetnje povezane s probojem Kapitola i druge vrste potencijalnih prijetnji.

Utvrđivanje grada, posebno oko Bijele kuće i Kapitola SAD -a, počelo je proteklih dana i očekuje se da će se povećati blizu 20. januara.

Video zapisi novinara, radnika i stanovnika u tom području prikazuju zatvaranje ulica, radnike koji postavljaju kilometre barikada i ograde, trgovine i urede su zatrpani daskama i povećano prisustvo vojske. Vojna vozila mogu se vidjeti parkirana na ulicama grada, a naoružani stražari provjeravaju identifikaciju ljudi koji izlaze i ulaze u grad.

Zaključani grad razdvojen je na “zelenu ” i “ crvenu ” zonu kao dio predsjedničkog inauguralnog pododbora 2021 ’ transportnog plana. Tajna služba SAD -a objavila je na svojoj web stranici popis svih zatvorenih ulica, od kojih su mnoge počele 16. januara u 6 ujutro, a planirano je da se završe u 6. ujutro 21. januara. Vašington se takođe zatvara 19. januara u 6 ujutro.

Before resigning from office, former Acting Department of Homeland Security Secretary Chad Wolf said in a statement on Jan. 11 that he had instructed the U.S. Secret service to begin National Special Security Event operations for the inauguration from Jan. 13.

The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) has also increased its security measures ahead of the inauguration. TSA Administrator David Pekoske said in a statement that the agency is currently processing hundreds of names with law enforcement agencies as part of a risk assessment. The agency will also add additional layers of security at all three D.C.-area airports.

“Those security layers include more law enforcement and explosives detection canine teams, random gate screening, increased number of Federal Air Marshals on certain flights, and additional Visible Intermodal Prevention and Response teams to provide greater security presence at certain rail transportation hubs,” Pekoske said.

D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser and security officials have also urged Americans to stay home to watch the inauguration virtually.

“We know this is the right request for our public safety and our public health,” she said on Jan. 15.

D.C. officials estimate the inauguration will cost roughly $45 million due to the increased security measures. So far, Congress has approved $34.9 million, Christopher Rodriguez, director of D.C.’s Homeland Security and Emergency Management Agency, said in a press conference on Jan. 15.

Rodriguez said the amount was keeping in mind deficits that the district had run “because of the heightened number of first amendment demonstrations” seen throughout 2020.

In 2017, security for President Donald Trump’s inauguration cost around $27 million, according to Rodriguez—around $7 million more than the $19.995 million approved by Congress.


Washington Highly Militarized Ahead of Biden’s Inauguration

Fences with coiled barbed wire, security checkpoints, barricades, and heavily armed guards are what you would expect in a military encampment for a warzone, not in downtown Washington. But these are only some of the measures that have been put in place in preparation for President-elect Joe Biden’s inauguration next week.

Federal authorities have said they’re tracking an “extensive” amount of “concerning online chatter” about potential threats to the inauguration, including armed protests, potential threats linked to the Capitol breach, and other types of potential threats.

The fortification of the city, particularly around the White House and U.S. Capitol, began over the past few days and is expected to ramp up nearing Jan. 20.

Videos by reporters, workers, and residents in the area show street closures, workers putting up miles of barricades and fencing, shops and offices being boarded up, and an increased military presence. Military vehicles can be seen parked on downtown streets, and armed guards are checking identification for people leaving and entering the city.

The locked-down city has been separated into “Green” and “Red” zones as part of the 2021 Presidential Inaugural Subcommittees’ transportation plan. The U.S. Secret Service has posted a list of all the street closures on its website, many of which began at 6 a.m. on Jan. 16, and are scheduled to end at 6 a.m. on Jan. 21. A number of bridges and interstate highways into Washington are also scheduled to close at 6 a.m. on Jan. 19.

As many as 25,000 National Guard members from all 50 states, three territories, and the District of Columbia will be stationed in the city next week, the U.S. Army confirmed, which is an increase of 5,000 from numbers earlier this week. The number of guardsmen sent to Washington exceeds the number of U.S. forces in Afghanistan, which has been reduced to 2,500, the Pentagon said on Jan. 15.

National Guardsmen were given the authorization to be armed on Jan. 12 in order to support law enforcement in the Capitol and the city, according to a statement by the D.C. National Guard. The authorization came after a request by federal authorities. Troops have been on 24-hour watch in the U.S. Capitol, and off-duty troops have been photographed sleeping in building hallways.

The increased number of National Guard members will be there to supplement the already ramped-up forces from the FBI, U.S. Secret Service, Department of Homeland Security, U.S. Capitol Police, and D.C.’s Metropolitan Police Department.

The number of guardsmen sent to Washington exceeds the number of U.S. forces in Afghanistan, which has been reduced to 2,500, the Pentagon said on Jan. 15.

National Guardsmen were given the authorization to be armed on Jan. 12 in order to support law enforcement in the Capitol and the city, according to a statement by the D.C. National Guard. The authorization came after a request by federal authorities. Troops have been on 24-hour watch in the U.S. Capitol, and off-duty troops have been photographed sleeping in building hallways.

The increased number of National Guard members will be there to supplement the already ramped-up forces from the FBI, U.S. Secret Service, Department of Homeland Security, U.S. Capitol Police, and D.C.’s Metropolitan Police Department.

Before resigning from office, former Acting Department of Homeland Security Secretary Chad Wolf said in a statement on Jan. 11 that he had instructed the U.S. Secret service to begin National Special Security Event operations for the inauguration from Jan. 13.

The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) has also increased its security measures ahead of the inauguration. TSA Administrator David Pekoske said in a statement that the agency is currently processing hundreds of names with law enforcement agencies as part of a risk assessment. The agency will also add additional layers of security at all three D.C.-area airports.

“Those security layers include more law enforcement and explosives detection canine teams, random gate screening, increased number of Federal Air Marshals on certain flights, and additional Visible Intermodal Prevention and Response teams to provide greater security presence at certain rail transportation hubs,” Pekoske said.

D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser and security officials have also urged Americans to stay home to watch the inauguration virtually.

“We know this is the right request for our public safety and our public health,” she said on Jan. 15.

D.C. officials estimate the inauguration will cost roughly $45 million due to the increased security measures. So far, Congress has approved $34.9 million, Christopher Rodriguez, director of D.C.’s Homeland Security and Emergency Management Agency, said in a press conference on Jan. 15.

Rodriguez said the amount was keeping in mind deficits that the district had run “because of the heightened number of first amendment demonstrations” seen throughout 2020.

In 2017, security for President Donald Trump’s inauguration cost around $27 million, according to Rodriguez—around $7 million more than the $19.995 million approved by Congress.
