9/11 was the deadliest attack on U.S. soil since Pearl Harbor. It served as a wake-up alarm for America’s security forces to the unfortunate fact that we were in no way prepared to prevent similar terrorist attacks from happening again. While many are familiar with some of the United States’ post 9/11 response, including the creation of the Department of Homeland Security and the War on Terror, U.S. security forces also engaged in an operation called Project Looking Glass to test their preparedness.
Similar to a Model UN crisis committee, representatives of every agency involved in terrorism mitigation gather for a comprehensive simulation to see how they would respond and interact with each other in the event of an attack. Yet, while no terrorists are actually involved, the participants are still deadly serious — lives are still at stake. The results of this simulation will shape America’s terrorism response and prevention protocols.
Step into these operatives’ shoes as you try to work together to protect your homeland. Will you succeed in saving American lives, or will you allow America’s enemies to slip through your fingers?
