When I found this on the Internet Movie Database, I got chills!
This all started tonight while I was listening to "The Alex Jones Show," and a woman called in saying that she had seen a movie in the 1980s about a movie called "Special Reports" which had to do with a fake newscast covering an event where terrorists have a nuclear bomb aboard a tugboat in Charleston Harbor in Charleston, South Carolina.
Well, I started looking on the web and couldn't find anything under that name. Later, I was talking on the phone to my friend Gene about this story going around the Internet about the "terror drill" planned for Aug. 17 in the Charleston, South Carolina area. Then, he said he remembered seeing a movie like this. It was a broadcast of a nuclear explosion aboard a boat. Gene thought it was real because it was filmed like a real news broadcast.
After some more searching, I found the movie. It was called "Special Bulletin" and it came out in 1983. It was written and directed by those guys behind the yuppie angst show "thirtysomething, " Edward Zwick and Marshall Herskovitz.
This is too bizarre, considering a "terror drill" is planned for next week in the same location!! And of course the fired, four-star general Kevin Byrnes, stationed at Fort Monroe, Virginia, was scheduled to be part of this "drill." For more information, go to Total Information Analysis.This reminds me of the pilot episode of "The X-Files" spin-off "The Lone Gunmen," where the Gunmen have to stop a plane from crashing into the World Trade Center. This episode appeared in March 2001, six months before the 9/11 attacks. Check it out.
