Absolutely. It's providing the evidence and confirming what's been scrutinized so much, which was originally reported to occur month's in advance and that CBRN troops would be at the Jamboree.
From post #1:
A multi-agency mass casualty conventional and non-conventional chemical and germ weapons terror attack drill involving 50 000+ scouts and their families, and the imposition of unlimited marshall law with large scale quarantine procedures with that could, in theory, go on for months


WV Healthcare and Medical Concept Document
Boy Scouts of America Jamboree-DRAFT
May 2013


The State is currently adjusting its existing Mass Casualty Incident plan to allow for the integration of additional state and federal (including military) assets into the response system. Mass casualty planning uses processes, protocol, resources and definitive care facilities that may be different than those used in the routine medical environment. The plan will articulate how each of the various levels of resources will be allocated to manage the incident. The State will maintain responsibility for overall management of the health and medical aspects of a mass casualty incident that exhausts local capacity/capability. This will be achieved by close coordination of resources at all levels. It is crucial that health and medical activities by on-scene command, local and state emergency management, the three forward operations centers (JIATF, JTF, and SOC), regional medical command and the various other agency command centers be coordinated. Health Command will be closely linked to the JIATF and will attempt to assure coordination among these various command and control groups. This will be accomplished by activities which feed information to and pull information from the other centers and support on-scene operations. Every effort will be made to create a seamless incident management system that will support health care facility resource needs.

So they should not have been prepared for an outbreak of food poisoning? of a strike by a tornado? or a camper with something like meningitis getting sick at it and exposing others?

When I had a disaster plan for a 500 person camping event, I didn't have any reason to think it would be needed other than it was being held during severe weather season and we had had bad weather in the past on that same weekend. That year we didn't, the next year we had close early and clear the site in about 6 hrs because of heavy storms that were going to cause the lake to rise to the point that parts of the site would be underwater.

For nothing happening there sure seemed like more than enough hype for “an attack … or health crisis.” like they were preparing for something was going to happen.

What was that scout motto again? 'Be proportioned' or something?

So do you suggest that something has happened but we just don't know about it and their chemical attack/zombie virus went according to plan?
Maybe the virus has a gestation period and will activate when everyone is safely in their home towns for maximum impact?

Or maybe it was just the opportunity for agencies to practice their responses and be on hand for unforeseen events.

Sure they should but what were they were training for was also a Zombie Virus Pandemic for instead.

Yes the National Security Administration Biometric Zombie Virus Tracking System app has worked according to plan.
Isn’t it interesting that we have heard so much lately about the National Security Agency, or about the IRS snooping into conservative interest groups?

Hmm this article says Virginia Tech made the app.

Participants at the Boy Scouts of America's National Jamboree are turning each other into virtual creepy crawlies by the thousands this week.
It's part of an educational game Virginia Tech researchers designed to show how disease spreads.

I am chuckling about the folks upset over the 'virus tracker'. Over 20 years ago there were 'plague events' in the SCA where at the start of the event one or 2 folks would be designated 'plague carriers', certain interactions would spread it, then that person becomes a carrier as well. This is nothing more than a high tech way to do the same thing.

I just find it funny that people think it is suspicious that a game that would also help kids learn would be played at the Scout Jamboree. That is what Scouts do!

Something else that may be included is in seeing how a virus could move from a large gathering, say a Super Bowl or NBA finals game into cities around the US. If a scout 'contracted' the virus from say, Midland, TX then one would expect it to show up there also. How many places would one need to plan on covering? How many folks could be exposed in one day? 2 days, 3 days?

Lots of valuable info that could help in the case of an epidemic.

Or there could always be the distinct possibility of a Zombie Pandemic and the universities in collaberation with DHS are getting ahead of things?

I find so hilarious the reactions I get when I tell them about this Zombie Apocalypse Fallacy being promoted by the United States Government.
Like VanDerBeek was pointing out before the jamboree and at other Zombie training exercises, this evidence should vindicate him of any bunk.
