Conflicting information

So the drill message said both "exercise, exercise, exercise" and "this is not a drill"?

Just in case of someone fucking up in a whole different way, I'm not surprised the ysent it out. What if the same message was played out in a real scenario and no one got the alert, then there really would be trouble.

The drill message shouldn't have stated it isn't a drill, doing so may have panicked the operator who took least damaging option.
