Amtrak Inquiry Will Focus on Driver Distraction and Excessive Speed

mikenova shared this story .

DUPONT, Wash. — The investigation into the fatal Amtrak crash near Tacoma, Wash., is focusing on the possibility that the engineer was distracted by a cellphone, another person in his cab or something else when the train barreled into a curve 50 miles per hour over the posted speed limit.

The crew did not activate the emergency brake before the derailment on Monday morning, said Bella Dinh-Zarr, the National Transportation Safety Board official overseeing the investigation, which might indicate that the engineer failed to perceive the danger.

At a news conference on Tuesday afternoon, she said the badly damaged cameras in the engineer’s cab — one facing forward, and the other inward, toward the person driving the train — had been sent to the safety board’s laboratory in Washington D.C. There, investigators will try to extract images showing what went on in the moments before the train plunged into a stand of trees and onto a busy highway, killing three people.

Ms. Dinh-Zarr stressed that the crew members — all of them hospitalized — had not yet been interviewed, and most of the evidence not yet analyzed. A data recorder on the train, carrying 77 passengers and seven crew members, indicated that it was racing at 80 miles per hour into a curve that is limited to 30 miles per hour, the safety board said. Excessive speed appeared to be the immediate cause of the crash, but the reason for that speed remained unknown.

“Distraction is one of our most wanted list of priorities at the N.T.S.B.” she said. “It’s protocol for us to look at all of the cellphone records of all the crew members whenever there is an accident of this type.”

There was a second person in the cab at the time of the crash, “a conductor who was getting experience and familiarizing himself with the territory,” Ms. Dinh-Zarr said. While that is common practice, rail safety experts say it can also be a distraction to the engineer, a possibility that she said would be investigated.

Drug and alcohol testing of crews is routine after train accidents, and the inward-facing cameras could show not only whether the engineer was distracted, but also whether he was impaired or fatigued — factors that have been blamed in other rail accidents.

Amtrak 501, on the Cascades service between Seattle and Portland, was the first to carry passengers on a new, faster route between Tacoma and Olympia, on tracks recently upgraded for passenger service. The unfamiliar, 14.5-mile stretch includes a spot where southbound trains leave a straightaway on a downhill slope before reaching the crash site, where the tracks curve onto an overpass crossing Interstate 5.

On that new part of the trip, “crews have been operating for at least two weeks prior to the accident with nonrevenue trains,” she said, including the engineer who was at the controls on Monday morning. But she would not say whether they had enough training before hauling passengers.

The fact that the train was on its inaugural run — and that the tracks had only recently been improved — may have contributed to the derailment, said Allan Zarembski, a professor of railroad safety and engineering at the University of Delaware.

The accident mirrored a 2015 crash in Philadelphia that killed eight people, when an Amtrak train took a turn much too fast and jumped the tracks. In the 2015 Philadelphia Amtrak derailment, the N.T.S.B. found that the engineer had lost “situational awareness” of where the train was on the route.

In this week’s accident, “the operator may not have been 100 percent familiar with that route or misjudged where he was and didn’t start to slow down for that curve,” Dr. Zarembski said. “I’m sure there was some familiarization, but the question is, how familiar was he with it?”

Operators generally carefully study documents known as track charts, which describe the route’s speed limits and tricky areas, before stepping into the cab, he said.

A former safety board railroad investigator, Russell Quimby, said that while there was no national standard for how many dry runs a railroad had to perform before opening a line, it was common to run practice trains under a variety of weather conditions and other circumstances.

After a private briefing by investigators, Gov. Jay Inslee of Washington said, “there are a thousand unanswered questions about this right now.”

The safety board blamed the 2008 crash of a commuter train in Los Angeles, which killed 25 people, on the distraction of the engineer, who was composing a text message when he ran a red light and collidedwith a freight train.

That accident played an important role in evolving rail safety standards. It led the safety board to recommend inward-facing cameras in train cabs, and Amtrak committed in 2015 to installing them.

The crash also prompted Congress to require that railroads adopt a system called positive train control — which the safety board has sought for decades — that automatically slows or stops a train that is moving too fast, or is in danger of running a red light or hitting another train. The law originally set a 2015 deadline for positive train control, which uses sensors both on the trains and along the tracks, communicating by radio frequencies. But after lobbying by railroads, Congress postponed the requirement.

“Unfortunately, the deadline was the end of 2015, but Congress extended that deadline to the train companies, and allowed them to have until the end of 2018,” Ms. Dinh-Zarr said.

Richard H. Anderson, the president of Amtrak, said at a news conference in Tacoma on Tuesday evening that it was too early to know whether positive train control could have prevented the accident. While some Amtrak routes have the technology, the Cascades line is scheduled to have it by the end of 2018, he said.

“We have to keep this as a wake-up call,” Mr. Anderson said. “It is not acceptable that we are involved in these kinds of accidents.”

Sound Transit, the regional agency that owns the track where the train derailed on Monday, said the system had been installed along the line, and the Washington State Department of Transportation has said that the entire Cascades route will have the system by mid-2018.

“The locomotive was in the process of getting a P.T.C. system installed but it was not yet functional,” Ms. Dinh-Zarr said.

Last Friday, a Cascades train took local dignitaries on the new route, including Eric F. Corp, a DuPont city councilman. Long before then, he said, people who knew anything about the line knew that there was a big curve going over the highway, requiring a major slowdown.

“What speed we were going when we went around the corner I’m not sure, but it was slow and methodical,” he said. “It wasn’t like we were leaning or at no time did I think we were going too fast.”

Two of the people killed, Zack Willhoite and James Hamre, were close friends and rail enthusiasts, traveling together on the train’s first public voyage. Mr. Hamre, a retired engineer, was a volunteer for All Aboard Washington, a rail advocacy organization; Mr. Willhoite worked as a customer support specialist for Pierce Transit, a local transportation agency.

“It was just a given that they would be there,” said Lloyd Flem, a friend of the victims and the executive director of All Aboard Washington. “They had wanted to be on that very, very first run.”

In an interview on Tuesday, Mr. Flem said that he had seen both men just a few days ago and that they were eager to board the train early Monday morning.

On Tuesday, the scene of the crash, surrounded by police and emergency vehicles, began to look more like a construction site than a disaster. In a steady rain, huge cranes moved into place and began to lift the wrecked pieces of the train, while the crumpled remains of cars and trucks were loaded onto tractor-trailers to be taken away.

The crash left at least two coaches tumbled onto their sides, one of them on top of another coach, and two dangling precariously off the edge of the bridge; the locomotive that was pulling the train came to a stop on the highway. Of the 14 cars in the train, only the locomotive at the rear, which was not in use at the time, did not derail.

Before the start of business, Just Security provides a curated summary of up-to-the-minute developments at home and abroad. Heres todays news.

ISRAEL-PALESTINE

The U.N. General Assembly is scheduled to hold an emergency special session tomorrow on Trumps decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, the session will include a vote on a draft resolution calling on Trump to withdraw his declaration a vote that would not be binding, but would carry political weight. Michelle Nichols reports at Reuters.

The draft resolution calls on the General Assembly to declare the U.S. move null and void and comes after Mondays U.N. Security Council 14-1 vote on a similar draft resolution. Peter Beaumont reports at the Guardian.

The U.S. will be taking names of the countries that support the draft resolution, the U.S. ambassador to the U.N. warned in a letter sent to Member States yesterday, adding that the president and the U.S. would take this vote personally. Noa Landau reports at Haaretz.

The decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israels capital and move the U.S. Embassy there does not prejudge final status negotiations in any way, Haleys letter to Member States also said, noting that the specific boundaries of Israeli sovereignty in Jerusalem are yet to be decided and that Trump supports the status quo at Jerusalems holy sites. Colum Lynch reports at Foreign Policy.

The Palestinian Authority leader Mahmoud Abbas is in the Saudi capital of Riyadh to meet with King Salman and Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman to discuss the Jerusalem decision and the latest developments in the city. Al Jazeera reports in rolling coverage.

The killing of a Palestinian wheelchair-bound amputee protestors by Israeli security forces was a truly shocking and wanton act, the U.N. human rights chief Zeid Raad al Hussein said yesterday, calling for Israel to open an independent and impartial investigation into the incident that occurred on Dec. 15, amid increased tensions due to Trumps decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israels capital. The U.N. News Centre reports.

The Israeli military denied that it targeted the protestor and said that its own investigation was unable to conclude what had killed him, adding that protestors threw explosive devices and rocks and rolled burning tires at Israeli security forces. Reuters reports.

Trump and the British Prime Minister Theresa May spoke about their different positions on Jerusalem in a phone call yesterday amid tensions between the two leaders, neither the White House nor Downing Street mentioned a presidential visit to London in their accounts of the conversation. Julian Borger and Peter Walker report at the Guardian.

NORTH KOREA

The WannaCry cyberattack carried out by North Korea was meant to cause havoc and destruction, Trumps homeland security adviser Thomas P. Bossert said in a press conference yesterday, publicly acknowledging that Pyongyang was behind the attack in May that affected more than 230,000 computers across the world. Ellen Nakashiman and Philip Rucker report at the Washington Post.

Canada and the U.S. are scheduled to co-host a meeting on the North Korean crisis in January, the Canadian Foreign Minister Chrystia Freeland announced yesterday during a joint news conference with Secretary of State Rex Tillerson. Max Greenwood reports at the Hill.

The U.S. gave China a draft resolution for new U.N. sanctions on North Korea last week, according to a Western diplomat. An anonymous U.S. official said that efforts were underway to negotiate a new U.N. resolution, but that an agreement had not been reached yet, Michelle Nichols and Steve Holland report at Reuters.

Im not aware of any plans to halt our long-standing and scheduled and regular military exercises with our partners in South Korea, Tillerson said yesterday following comments by the South Korean President Moon Jae-in to NBC News that proposed postponing joint military drills until after the 2018 Winter Olympics. Max Greenwood reports at the Hill.

The President had made very clear that on North Korea now is not the time to talk, Trumps national security adviser H.R. McMaster said yesterday, reiterating the White House position after recent comments by Tillerson appeared to contradict previous policy on engaging in negotiations. Daniella Diaz and Dan Merica report at CNN.

U.S. allies and other countries have been slow to implement sanctions against North Korea and the U.S. must take an aggressive approach to Chinese sanctions violators if it wants to force North Korea to the negotiating table. The Wall Street Journal editorial board writes.

The visit by Jeffrey Feltman, the U.N. undersecretary-general for political affairs to North Korea, was the first by a high-level U.N. official in six years, Feltman made three request of Pyongyang officials during his meetings, however the North Korean response to his requests demonstrate that it seeks to bargain from a position of power and the world should be concerned about the possibility of sleepwalking into a confrontation. David Ignatius provides an analysis of Feltmans trip at the Washington Post.

YEMEN

Saudi Arabia intercepted a ballistic missile launched toward its capital by the Iran-backed Yemeni Houthi rebels, a spokesperson for the Saudi-led coalition said in a statement yesterday, adding that the missile was heading toward populated residential areas and a Houthi spokesperson said that the missile was aimed at a royal palace in Riyadh. Kareem Fahim reports at the Washington Post.

The Houthi rebels said that they have opened a new chapter in their confrontation with Saudi Arabia following yesterdays missile attack, Reuters reports.

The Houthi missile bears all the hallmarks of previous attacks using Iranian-provided weapons, the U.S. ambassador to the U.N. Nikki Haley said yesterday, warning that Iran would bring the world deeper into a broadening regional conflict if its crimes were not exposed. The BBC reports.

The U.S. condemned the Houthis for the attack, the spokesperson for the State Department, Heather Nauert, called on Irans Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps to stop arming and enabling the Houthis violent actions and reiterated the need to allow humanitarian aid to reach the Yemeni people. Max Greenwood reports at the Hill.

The main Yemeni port of Hodeida will remain open for a month, despite the Houthi attack, the Saudi-led coalition said today, saying that the decision was made to allow for humanitarian aid to reach the Yemeni people. Reuters reports.

Trumps nominee for the top legal adviser at the State Department acknowledged that Saudi Arabias blocking of humanitarian aid to Yemen may constitute a violation of U.S. and international law in a written answer to questions raised by a member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, Todd Young (R-Ind.), last month. Dan De Luce reports at Foreign Policy.

TRUMP NATIONAL SECURITY STRATEGY

China and Russia criticized Trumps new national security strategy (N.S.S.), which was unveiled on Monday and called both countries rivals, with China saying that it revealed Cold War thinking and Russia saying that it had an imperialist character. Andrew E. Kramer reports at the New York Times.

The N.S.S. offered a harsher but more realistic view of U.S.-China relations than that of the Obama administration, it acknowledged Chinas rise and its bullying behavior, however Trumps challenge will be to convince Asian friends and allies he is serious about upholding U.S. primacy in the region and the dispute in the South China Sea could lead to another Cold-War style brinkmanship. Andrew Browne writes at the Wall Street Journal.

The N.S.S. offered glimmers of hope, is a move in the right direction by acknowledging the threat posed by China and Russia, and may help to correct the foreign policy damage of the recent past. David Von Drehle writes at the Washington Post.

The N.S.S. omitted key points, such as the threat of climate change and the need to uphold human rights and promote democracy, it reversed the notion put forward by the Obama and Bush administration that free trade deals serve the U.S. national interest, and the strategy revealed a dissonance between Trumps words on Russia and China and his actions. The Washington Post editorial board writes.

At its core, the N.S.S. was hardly a radical departure from American tradition, and the critics have reacted with hyperbole. The most striking element of the speech was the linking of economic prosperity with the furthering of U.S. interests and national security a focus that is welcome. Zachary Karabell writes at POLITICO Magazine.

TRUMP-RUSSIA

The F.B.I. Deputy Director Andrew McCabe appeared before the House Intelligence Committee yesterday amid the committees investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. election, concerns among some Republicans about anti-Trump bias within the F.B.I. and speculation over McCabes possible departure. Katie Bo Williams reports at the Hill.

Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.) and Oversight Committee Chairman Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.) have called on the Justice Department to make senior F.B.I. officials available for testimonybefore Congress, the two lawmakers are seeking information on the F.B.I.s handling of the investigation into the Russia investigation and their investigation into former presidential candidate Hillary Clintons use of classified information. Kyle Cheney reports at POLITICO.

The House Intelligence Committee interviewed the former State Department official David Kramer yesterday, Kramer met with the former British Intelligence officer Christopher Steele who compiled the controversial dossier that alleged ties between Trump and Russia. Katie Bo Williams reports at the Hill.

A group of Democratic lawmakers have called on speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) to arrange a briefing to Congress by the Department of Homeland Security and F.B.I. on Russian efforts to target state voter systems ahead of the 2016 election, Morgan Chalfant reports at the Hill.

SYRIA

The U.N. will propose a timeline for elections in Syria and guidance on constitutional reforms, the U.N. special envoy for Syria Staffan de Mistura told the Security Council yesterday, expressing hope that the propositions would spur fresh thinking in all quarters. Michelle Nichols and Tom Miles report at Reuters.

OTHER DEVELOPMENTS

The U.S. ambassador to the U.N. Nikki Haley called for the Security Council to take action to address Irans dangerous violations of U.N. resolutions and its destabilizing behavior, saying yesterday that the council could strengthen the resolution that endorsed the 2015 Iran nuclear deal, adopt a new resolution prohibiting all Iranian ballistic missile activity, explore sanctions in response to violations of the Yemen arms embargo, and hold Irans Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps accountable for violating council resolutions. Russias deputy U.N. ambassador said that abandoning the language of threats and sanctions was needed to implement the resolution on the nuclear deal, Edith M. Lederer reports at the AP.

An analysis has revealed that between 9,000 and 11,000 civilians were killed in the battle to free the Iraqi city of Mosul from the Islamic State group, the AP reports.

The House is set to hold a vote on a bill renewing the National Security Agencys (N.S.A.) warrantless surveillance program, which was modified by the House Intelligence Committee and does not include many new privacy controls but tries to strike a compromise between the F.B.I.s desires and the protections sought by privacy advocates. Katie Bo Williams reports at the Hill.

Saudi Arabia has permanently closed its only land border with Qatar, according to a letter issued by Saudi Arabias customs directorate yesterday, the move coming in the eighth month of the diplomatic crisis that started when Saudi Arabia, U.A.E., Egypt and Bahrain isolated Qatar due to its alleged ties to terrorism and its close ties to Iran. Al Jazeera reports.

‘Antifa’ Falsely Linked to Amtrak Train Derailment by Right-Wing Conspiracy Peddlers

mikenova shared this story from Newsweek.

The anti-fascism movement, “antifa,” which is more of a protesting tactic than a formal group, has been the subject of blame in a growing number of bizarre—and false—conspiracy theories floated by right-wing pundits in recent months.

Take the mass shooting in Las Vegas that claimed scores of lives: Antifa was not involved, despite a theory otherwise. Then, antifa was blamed for a fake civil war plot. It never happened because such a thing was never planned. Antifa was also blamed for a mass shooting in a Texas church. Again, the shooting had nothing to do with anti-fascism, or with left-wing protesters in general.

On Monday, some of the usual conspiracy theory suspects—conservative media personality Mike Cernovich, President Donald Trump mega-fan Jack Posobiec, the far-right website Gateway Pundit andAlex Jones’s InfoWars—all brought up antifa in the context of a fatal train derailment in Washington state, and they did so before investigators had even announced any formal explanation for the crash.

What we know about the derailment is that more than a dozen cars of an Amtrak train jumped the tracks, injuring scores of people and killing an unknown number of others near Dupont, an area south of Tacoma, Washington. What we don’t know is what caused the accident, though right-wing pundits were pushing out insinuations before a death toll could be established.

Cernovich, who has pushed several other conspiracies tied to antifa, observed to his fans that “ANTIFA has a long and verifiable track record of obstructing train tracks, committing violence.” His friend Posobiec, who on Twitter doxed one of the women who accused Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore of sexual misconduct this November, leaking her work address and a recent photo to his followers, used the forum to tie antifa to the deadly derailment. “Antifa has targeted trains for weeks very near where the Amtrak derailment tragedy took place today,” Posobiec mused. Gateway Pundit pushed the theory as well, falsely accusing It’s Going Down, a well-trafficked antifascist website, of covering up its associations with the derailment. PJ Media, another right-wing site, picked up on the conspiracy, as did Jones.

“FLASHBACK: ANTIFA ADMITS TRAIN TRACK SABOTAGE NEAR TACOMA TO ‘STOP FRACKING,’” a headline on InfoWars read. “Antifa behind Tacoma train wreck?”

The basis of the conspiracy appears to be a post published on a website called Puget Sound Anarchists that was rerun on a number of left-leaning sites and activist blogs earlier this year.

“Early in the morning of April 20th we poured concrete on the train tracks that lead out of the Port of Olympia to block any trains from using the tracks,” the April 21 post read, adding that the group notified the train company of its actions. “We did this not to avoid damaging a train, nothing would bring bigger grins to our faces, but to avoid the risk of injuring railway workers.”

Blocking trains that carry fracking equipment and other materials related to the production of fossil fuels has long been a tactic of environmental protesters. In May 2016, for example, 52 activists were cited for trespassing in Washington State after blocking a train that was headed to two refineries. That protest was part of the so-called Break Free protests, urging people to disengage with fossil fuels due to issues related to man-made climate change.

People on the right became familiar with the April post on Puget Sound Anarchists because it ran concurrently on the website It’s Going Down, which has gained a wide reach by reporting on alleged fascism and left-wing activism from an anti-fascist perspective following Trump’s election. After right-wing provocateurs seized on the post as something meant to incite violence (the post goes out of its way to discourage violence), It’s Going Down denounced the accusations to Newsweek and said it removed the post from its website—months before Monday’s train derailment.

Newsweek asked Cernovich why he felt it was important to talk about “antifa” in the context of this train incident. He wrote in response that “ANTIFA groups shouldn’t pour concrete on train tracks”; however there is no proof they did. He said that the derailment could be an accident, poor infrastructure, “antifa” or “ISIS.” (The Islamic State militant group has also been blamed for the accident on the imageboard site 8chan, and other sites that traffic in conspiracy theories.) Trump himself cited poor infrastructure as a national issue in the aftermath of the derailment, and declined to name any other potential causes.

Anti-fascist activists have expressed frustration to Newsweek over having to repeatedly push back against a wave of what they call baseless conspiracy theories attached to their protests this year. They argue that the conspiracies are being spun deliberately and in bad faith. One compared the trend to the demonization of environmentalists and Black Lives Matter activists.

“LABRAT KNATS!” Is this The Message on The (Social) Walls?

“Here is your “Collision” – “Collusion” for you, you “Lab-rats –  g(k)nats(nuts)”! That what your name is: THE LABRAT KNATS! And I am just one of them, a little Lab Rat, “The Graffiti Artist as Prophet Writing On The Walls“. And be scared of the L.A. Brats – K-NATs, and be scared of the war with those nuts! Just by the way… And maybe, the “Antifas”, the Leftists, did it, too…” – in my interpretation as of 8:46 AM 12/20/2017 – M.N.

Amtrak Inquiry Will Focus on Driver Distraction and Excessive Speed

1 Share

DUPONT, Wash. — The investigation into the fatal Amtrak crash near Tacoma, Wash., is focusing on the possibility that the engineer was distracted by a cellphone, another person in his cab or something else when the train barreled into a curve 50 miles per hour over the posted speed limit.

The crew did not activate the emergency brake before the derailment on Monday morning, said Bella Dinh-Zarr, the National Transportation Safety Board official overseeing the investigation, which might indicate that the engineer failed to perceive the danger.

At a news conference on Tuesday afternoon, she said the badly damaged cameras in the engineer’s cab — one facing forward, and the other inward, toward the person driving the train — had been sent to the safety board’s laboratory in Washington D.C. There, investigators will try to extract images showing what went on in the moments before the train plunged into a stand of trees and onto a busy highway, killing three people.

Ms. Dinh-Zarr stressed that the crew members — all of them hospitalized — had not yet been interviewed, and most of the evidence not yet analyzed. A data recorder on the train, carrying 77 passengers and seven crew members, indicated that it was racing at 80 miles per hour into a curve that is limited to 30 miles per hour, the safety board said. Excessive speed appeared to be the immediate cause of the crash, but the reason for that speed remained unknown.

“Distraction is one of our most wanted list of priorities at the N.T.S.B.” she said. “It’s protocol for us to look at all of the cellphone records of all the crew members whenever there is an accident of this type.”

There was a second person in the cab at the time of the crash, “a conductor who was getting experience and familiarizing himself with the territory,” Ms. Dinh-Zarr said. While that is common practice, rail safety experts say it can also be a distraction to the engineer, a possibility that she said would be investigated.

Drug and alcohol testing of crews is routine after train accidents, and the inward-facing cameras could show not only whether the engineer was distracted, but also whether he was impaired or fatigued — factors that have been blamed in other rail accidents.

Amtrak 501, on the Cascades service between Seattle and Portland, was the first to carry passengers on a new, faster route between Tacoma and Olympia, on tracks recently upgraded for passenger service. The unfamiliar, 14.5-mile stretch includes a spot where southbound trains leave a straightaway on a downhill slope before reaching the crash site, where the tracks curve onto an overpass crossing Interstate 5.

On that new part of the trip, “crews have been operating for at least two weeks prior to the accident with nonrevenue trains,” she said, including the engineer who was at the controls on Monday morning. But she would not say whether they had enough training before hauling passengers.

The fact that the train was on its inaugural run — and that the tracks had only recently been improved — may have contributed to the derailment, said Allan Zarembski, a professor of railroad safety and engineering at the University of Delaware.

The accident mirrored a 2015 crash in Philadelphia that killed eight people, when an Amtrak train took a turn much too fast and jumped the tracks. In the 2015 Philadelphia Amtrak derailment, the N.T.S.B. found that the engineer had lost “situational awareness” of where the train was on the route.

In this week’s accident, “the operator may not have been 100 percent familiar with that route or misjudged where he was and didn’t start to slow down for that curve,” Dr. Zarembski said. “I’m sure there was some familiarization, but the question is, how familiar was he with it?”

Operators generally carefully study documents known as track charts, which describe the route’s speed limits and tricky areas, before stepping into the cab, he said.

A former safety board railroad investigator, Russell Quimby, said that while there was no national standard for how many dry runs a railroad had to perform before opening a line, it was common to run practice trains under a variety of weather conditions and other circumstances.

After a private briefing by investigators, Gov. Jay Inslee of Washington said, “there are a thousand unanswered questions about this right now.”

The safety board blamed the 2008 crash of a commuter train in Los Angeles, which killed 25 people, on the distraction of the engineer, who was composing a text message when he ran a red light and collided with a freight train.

That accident played an important role in evolving rail safety standards. It led the safety board to recommend inward-facing cameras in train cabs, and Amtrak committed in 2015 to installing them.

The crash also prompted Congress to require that railroads adopt a system called positive train control — which the safety board has sought for decades — that automatically slows or stops a train that is moving too fast, or is in danger of running a red light or hitting another train. The law originally set a 2015 deadline for positive train control, which uses sensors both on the trains and along the tracks, communicating by radio frequencies. But after lobbying by railroads, Congress postponed the requirement.

“Unfortunately, the deadline was the end of 2015, but Congress extended that deadline to the train companies, and allowed them to have until the end of 2018,” Ms. Dinh-Zarr said.

Richard H. Anderson, the president of Amtrak, said at a news conference in Tacoma on Tuesday evening that it was too early to know whether positive train control could have prevented the accident. While some Amtrak routes have the technology, the Cascades line is scheduled to have it by the end of 2018, he said.

“We have to keep this as a wake-up call,” Mr. Anderson said. “It is not acceptable that we are involved in these kinds of accidents.”

Sound Transit, the regional agency that owns the track where the train derailed on Monday, said the system had been installed along the line, and the Washington State Department of Transportation has said that the entire Cascades route will have the system by mid-2018.

“The locomotive was in the process of getting a P.T.C. system installed but it was not yet functional,” Ms. Dinh-Zarr said.

Last Friday, a Cascades train took local dignitaries on the new route, including Eric F. Corp, a DuPont city councilman. Long before then, he said, people who knew anything about the line knew that there was a big curve going over the highway, requiring a major slowdown.

“What speed we were going when we went around the corner I’m not sure, but it was slow and methodical,” he said. “It wasn’t like we were leaning or at no time did I think we were going too fast.”

Two of the people killed, Zack Willhoite and James Hamre, were close friends and rail enthusiasts, traveling together on the train’s first public voyage. Mr. Hamre, a retired engineer, was a volunteer for All Aboard Washington, a rail advocacy organization; Mr. Willhoite worked as a customer support specialist for Pierce Transit, a local transportation agency.

“It was just a given that they would be there,” said Lloyd Flem, a friend of the victims and the executive director of All Aboard Washington. “They had wanted to be on that very, very first run.”

In an interview on Tuesday, Mr. Flem said that he had seen both men just a few days ago and that they were eager to board the train early Monday morning.

On Tuesday, the scene of the crash, surrounded by police and emergency vehicles, began to look more like a construction site than a disaster. In a steady rain, huge cranes moved into place and began to lift the wrecked pieces of the train, while the crumpled remains of cars and trucks were loaded onto tractor-trailers to be taken away.

The crash left at least two coaches tumbled onto their sides, one of them on top of another coach, and two dangling precariously off the edge of the bridge; the locomotive that was pulling the train came to a stop on the highway. Of the 14 cars in the train, only the locomotive at the rear, which was not in use at the time, did not derail.

‘Antifa’ Falsely Linked to Amtrak Train Derailment by Right-Wing Conspiracy Peddlers

The anti-fascism movement, “antifa,” which is more of a protesting tactic than a formal group, has been the subject of blame in a growing number of bizarre—and false—conspiracy theories floated by right-wing pundits in recent months.

Take the mass shooting in Las Vegas that claimed scores of lives: Antifa was not involved, despite a theory otherwise. Then, antifa was blamed for a fake civil war plot. It never happened because such a thing was never planned. Antifa was also blamed for a mass shooting in a Texas church. Again, the shooting had nothing to do with anti-fascism, or with left-wing protesters in general.

On Monday, some of the usual conspiracy theory suspects—conservative media personality Mike Cernovich, President Donald Trump mega-fan Jack Posobiec, the far-right website Gateway Pundit andAlex Jones’s InfoWars—all brought up antifa in the context of a fatal train derailment in Washington state, and they did so before investigators had even announced any formal explanation for the crash.

What we know about the derailment is that more than a dozen cars of an Amtrak train jumped the tracks, injuring scores of people and killing an unknown number of others near Dupont, an area south of Tacoma, Washington.

Gateway Pundit pushed the theory as well, falsely accusing It’s Going Down, a well-trafficked antifascist website, of covering up its associations with the derailment. PJ Media, another right-wing site, picked up on the conspiracy, as did Jones.

“FLASHBACK: ANTIFA ADMITS TRAIN TRACK SABOTAGE NEAR TACOMA TO ‘STOP FRACKING,’” a headline on InfoWars read. “Antifa behind Tacoma train wreck?”

The basis of the conspiracy appears to be a post published on a website called Puget Sound Anarchists that was rerun on a number of left-leaning sites and activist blogs earlier this year.

“Early in the morning of April 20th we poured concrete on the train tracks that lead out of the Port of Olympia to block any trains from using the tracks,” the April 21 post read, adding that the group notified the train company of its actions. “We did this not to avoid damaging a train, nothing would bring bigger grins to our faces, but to avoid the risk of injuring railway workers.”

Blocking trains that carry fracking equipment and other materials related to the production of fossil fuels has long been a tactic of environmental protesters. In May 2016, for example, 52 activists were cited for trespassing in Washington State after blocking a train that was headed to two refineries. That protest was part of the so-called Break Free protests, urging people to disengage with fossil fuels due to issues related to man-made climate change.

People on the right became familiar with the April post on Puget Sound Anarchists because it ran concurrently on the website It’s Going Down, which has gained a wide reach by reporting on alleged fascism and left-wing activism from an anti-fascist perspective following Trump’s election. After right-wing provocateurs seized on the post as something meant to incite violence (the post goes out of its way to discourage violence), It’s Going Down denounced the accusations to Newsweek and said it removed the post from its website—months before Monday’s train derailment.

Newsweek asked Cernovich why he felt it was important to talk about “antifa” in the context of this train incident. He wrote in response that “ANTIFA groups shouldn’t pour concrete on train tracks”; however there is no proof they did. He said that the derailment could be an accident, poor infrastructure, “antifa” or “ISIS.” (The Islamic State militant group has also been blamed for the accident on the imageboard site 8chan, and other sites that traffic in conspiracy theories.) Trump himself cited poor infrastructure as a national issue in the aftermath of the derailment, and declined to name any other potential causes.

Anti-fascist activists have expressed frustration to Newsweek over having to repeatedly push back against a wave of what they call baseless conspiracy theories attached to their protests this year. They argue that the conspiracies are being spun deliberately and in bad faith. One compared the trend to the demonization of environmentalists and Black Lives Matter activists.

Massive Amtrak Train Derailment Above I-5 Dupont, Washington State Six Killed
 

mikenova shared this story from The Last Refuge.

“Derailment” is not an appropriate term for this accident as an Amtrack passenger train hurtled from the rails near 70 MPH on the first-ever run (at speed) along this line.  At least six people have been killed.  There were 78 people on board for the inaugural run.

DUPONT, Wash. (AP) — An Amtrak train making the first-ever run along a faster new route hurtled off an overpass Monday near Tacoma and spilled some of its cars onto the highway below, killing at least six people, authorities said.

Seventy-eight passengers and five crew members were aboard when the train moving at more than 80 mph derailed about 40 miles (64 kilometers) south of Seattle before 8 a.m., Amtrak said.

There was no immediate word on why the train left the tracks.

The Pierce County Sheriff’s Office said several vehicles on Interstate 5 were struck by falling train cars and multiple motorists were injured. No fatalities of motorists were reported. (read more)

The train was making the inaugural run on the new route as part of a $180.7 million project designed to speed up service by removing passenger trains from a route along Puget Sound that’s bogged down by curves, single-track tunnels and freight traffic.

It left Seattle around 6 a.m., according to an Amtrak schedule, and was due in Portland about 3 1/2 hours later.

The new route includes a bypass built on an existing inland rail line that runs along Interstate 5 from Tacoma to DuPont, near where Train 501 derailed. Track testing was completed in January and February in advance of Monday’s launch, according to the Washington State Department of Transportation.

The mayor of Lakewood, Washington, a city along the new route, predicted a deadly crash — but one involving a fast-moving train hitting a car or pedestrian at a grade-crossing. At a public meeting two weeks ago, he called on state planners to build overpass-like rail structures instead of having trains cross busy streets.

“Come back when there is that accident and try to justify not putting in those safety enhancements,” Anderson said, according to Seattle television station KOMO. “Or you can go back now and advocate for the money to do it, because this project was never needed and endangers our citizens.”

The National Transportation Safety Board said it has a team of investigators on the way from Washington, D.C.  (read more)

James Clapper: Putin is handling Trump like a Russian ‘asset’
 

mikenova shared this story from Politics.

james clapperJames Clapper. AP

  • Former US Director of National Intelligence James Clapper said Monday that Russian President Vladimir Putin is handling President Donald Trump as an intelligence “asset.”
  • Trump has frequently praised the Russian leader and expressed the desire to foster closer ties with Russia. The two also share similar views on a number of topics, like the media and the ongoing Russia investigation.
  • Clapper said Putin appears to b e using his past experience and training as a KGB officer in “managing a pretty important account,” referring to Trump.

In his sharpest critique yet, former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper characterized President Donald Trump as an “asset” to Russia and Russian President Vladimir Putin on Monday.

Clapper appeared on CNN after Trump announced his new national-security strategy, which categorizes China and Russia as rivals whose interests are “antithetical” to the US.’ The White House additionally accused Russia of “using information tools in an attempt to undermine the legitimacy of democracies.”

During the press conference, Trump also brought up the phone call he had with Putin over the weekend, during which the Russian leader called Trump to thank him for sharing critical CIA intelligence that thwarted a planned terror attack in St. Petersburg.

“Yesterday I received a call from President Putin of Russia thanking our country for the intelligence that our CIA was able to provide them concerning a major terrorist attack,” Trump said. “That’s a great thing, and the way it’s supposed to work. That is the way it’s supposed to work.”

During Monday’s interview on CNN, Clapper said that the US and Russia have shared intelligence of that nature for quite a while, and that Putin’s phone call to Trump seemed “theatric” and was “illustrative of what a great case officer” he is. Clapper added that Putin, a former KGB operative, “knows how to handle an asset, and that’s what he’s doing with the president.”

Trump has long expressed both admiration for Putin, as well as a desire to foster closer ties with Russia. He has also frequently echoed Putin’s own talking points. Experts say the most prominent example is Trump’s initial reluctance to accept the US intelligence community’s findings that Russia intervened in the 2016 election to sway the race in his favor.

He repeatedly cast doubt on the assessment, at times suggesting that there was no way to be sure that Russia meddled, that it could have been private hackers who weren’t affiliated with the Russian government, that it could have been other countries, or rejecting the intelligence community’s findingsaltogether.

He has also dismissed congressional and FBI investigations into Russia’s election interference as politically-motivated “witch hunts” aimed at crippling his governing capacity, while disparaging the FBI’s reputation as the “worst in history.”

Clapper, former CIA director John Brennan, and former FBI director James Comey — all of whom Trump called “political hacks” — have repeatedly warned of Putin’s tactics, and Clapper said Monday that he appears to be playing to Trump’s characteristics. The Russian leader is reportedly briefed on all of Trump’s tweets — his preferred method of communicating with the public — and he has made remarksover the last few months that mirror Trump’s own beliefs.

Like Trump, Putin often denounces the independent press, and he recently criticized the Russia investigation as being “invented by the people who stand in opposition to Mr Trump to present his work as illegitimate.”

“You have to remember Putin’s background,” Clapper said Monday. “He’s a KGB officer. That’s what they do. They recruit assets.”

He added that Putin appears to be using his past experience and instincts now to manage “a pretty important account for him, if I could use that term, with our president.”
