Well, ain't that something. The authorities just happened to have a 'multi-site attack exercise' drill running on the same day as the Paris attacks took place:
Just like during 911, when a U.S. intelligence agency was planning an exercise for the same day involving an aircraft crashing into one of its buildings in Washington:
and the 2005 London bombings, where "Peter Power, one time high ranking employee of Scotland Yard and a member of its Anti-Terrorist Branch, reported in two major UK media outlets that his company Visor Consulting had on the morning of 7th of July been conducting 'crisis exercises' whose scenarios uncannily mirrored those of the actual attack", "involving a thousand people" and which had "bombs going off precisely at the railway stations at which the actual bombings occured":
and the Boston marathon bombings in 2013, where a police responce training with terrorists using backpacks filled with explosives was planned to take place later:
Good thing I know that our democratic governments would never intentionally harm or lie to us. Otherwise I might start to have those crazy conspiracy ideas about the attacks being carried out by the authorities themselves to slowly strip the fearful citizenry of their rights and to turn socities into police states serving one totalitarian world government, à la 1984. All in the interest of a small psychopathic elite.
Phew, I wonder what's on TV..
