Gen. Flynn: Baltimore Bridge Collapse 'A Black Swan Event' | 26 March 2024 | General Michael Flynn turned to social media Tuesday morning to warn the recent ship collision that collapsed the Francis Scott Key Bridge in Baltimore, Maryland, was a "Black Swan" event many people have been warning about for the past few months. "This is a BLACK SWAN event," Flynn said of the deadly bridge incident. "Black swans normally come out of the world of finance (not military). The standard operating procedures for all U.S. ports, harbors, and bays that transit commerce and military activities are supposed to maintain an incredible level of discipline, rigor and awareness for these very type events to not occur (ever!), yet here we are." He added: "There are harbor masters for every single one of these transit points in America that are in charge of assuring the safety of navigation...start there." General Flynn also shared a video breaking down the bridge tragedy, such as the ship's power clearly going out just before it sailed into one of the bridge's piles.
