Continuity of Government COGThe advent of nuclear weapons also brought concerns of how to maintain a government during and after a nuclear attack For a lack of a better term this is called continuity of government or COG Before nuclear weapons it was virtually impossible to destroy a complete government in one attack After nuclear weapons this is an all to possible scenarioRavenrock is an account of how the US Government planned for COG from President Truman to near present times Much of the near term planning is classified and unavailable to the authors But still there are clues of what existsThe sad fact is this Americans and their politicians believe hiding from a threat is cowardice The was seen during 911 when President Bush was at school in Florida whisked away to Air Force One forced to fly in holding patterns over the Caribbean landing at Barksdale AFB and the directed to Offutt AFB despite his objects and his desire to return to the White House while people in Washington tried to understand what had happened to the United States Afterwards a number of people accused him of cowardice This greatly impairs the ability of planners for COGIn Ravenrock of the 1950 s we see plans to ferret key people in government away to various underground bunkers while leaving their families This proved infeasible for politicians and their families alike So plans were changed to provide for families But even these did not provide satisfaction to the point where key politicians would not evacuate Rather the would send subordinates during the exercises and in certain real situations to the bunkersThen there was the issue of transportation At first the plan depended on traveling the roads about Washington DC But have you ever tried to get somewhere uickly in Washington DC particularly at 430 PM In a nuclear attack the thought initially was that you had 15 minutesAfter trying to move President Eisenhower to Camp David it was uickly found a better solution was necessary At first a bubble dome helicopter from the Army was used But after the first flight when the President suffer severe heat exhaustion and dehydration from the heat in the helicopter this had to be changed After some deliberation a Marine helicopter proved satisfactory This was how the Marines got the helicopter services for the President which they retain to the present dayClearly the transportation difficulties still persist to this day for various other personages Washington DC is not an easy place to escape fromWe see the development of Air Force One in its various forms and the alternate command posts both aerial and bunker based Communications posed special problems reuiring the coalition of various communications corporations in the planning for COG We see the development of NORAD in Cheyenne Mountain and the advent of NORAD tracking Santa Claus on Christmas EveAnd so Ravenrock traces the billions of dollars spent on COG operations the attempts to find feasible governmental operations the exercise and failures of the plans and what actually happened during several crises where the COG plans were potentially in effectSo where does Ravenrock leave usSince there is security classification tied to most of the COG plans and operations we can only surmise an answer from real events where COG operations were exercised the most recent being 911 What we found was a reluctance of American Leaders to exercise their duties under the current plan For example the Secretary of Defense was assisting in immediate evacuations from the Pentagon and was incommunicado for a lengthy period of time rather than performing assigned duties Despite movement orders for the principals they sent subordinates Most of the people did not know of the plans and those that did apparently with some exceptions did not follow their instructionsThus we are left to conclude that in a real emergency much of the COG planning would be for naught ad hoc decisions would be made If a real nuclear attack hit Washington DC regardless of warning times be they short or be they long the US Government would be effectively decapitated mainly because plans have been insufficiently exercised and plans would not be executed in fullNo one knows what the future will bring but we are left with President Eisenhower s words The President said that of course his imagination as to the horrors of a third world war might be overdeveloped but he believed that every single nation including the United States which entered into this war as a free nation would come out of it as a dictatorship wrote Deputy Executive Secretary Everett Gleason in the meeting minutes This would be the price of survival

I ve not finished this yet but felt compelled to write a reviewI ve been looking for a book that covers the political and practical aspects of the cold war What the thoughts and policies were of the leaders and how they turned that into preparedness for the horror that could come I ve always been particularly interested in the bunkers the design size how they were euipped etc This book does all of the above and I m amazed by the sheer collation of data that the writer must have gone through to pull out the meaningful information that he s put in here He talks about the initial rush and cash injection to get the US prepared for Armageddon to the back burner politics of the late 60 s and 70 s Vietnam was the priority then The book goes into detail about costs conversations and attitudes toward preparedness and continuity of government and what that would really mean for the people of the nation I ll give you a hint what s the point of having a government if there s no people leftReally great book I d recommend to anyone who s interested in the subject matter or wants to understand the history and possibly attitudes of the American leaders during the Cold War
