Re: Undramatic Pause

Well that certainly is interesting and surprising. The recon schedule reflects that it was issued at 1pm EDT today. Definitely seems odd, given the current appearance of TD10's remnants and the discussion of it in the 205 pm NHC discussion.

I can't offer any real answer as to why, but I guess there are 3 main possibilities: error (e.g., prepared yesterday, but not intended to be issued unless the area maintained some organization); issued in an abundance of caution (seems odd--in the unlikely event of re-organization, could get a flight out with or without such a plan existing); plan to use as training missions if former TD 10 is still unorganized (seems odd, too; there are plenty of other training missions, and, given the limited budget, plenty of opportunities for real investigation undoubtedly on the horizon).
