Executive Editor of Defense One mocked the transfer of power in the White House by posting a picture of a security plan in Washington, DC in the days leading up to Inauguration Day.

Iran PressAmerica: Referring to unnerving police and military presence in Washington, DC ahead of the inauguration ceremony of Joe Biden as America's 46th President, Kevin Baron ironically described the toughest security measures in US history as "peaceful and calm."

US federal officials have warned about threats of violence and potential unrest fueled by the outgoing President Donald Trump's corrosive and dangerous lies that the election was stolen from him.

Normally the inauguration of a president is a joyful event that brings thousands of people to Washington to celebrate. But with authorities determined to stave off the terrifying scene that unfolded during the violent insurrection at the US Capitol on January 6, Washington, DC now resembles a police state as authorities try to ensure a peaceful transfer of power when President-elect Joe Biden takes the oath of office on Wednesday.
