 The Perfect Terrorist Plan To Level The Twin Towers Created In 1976
McNiven, who first went public in an affidavit included in a 9/11-related federal conspiracy (RICO) lawsuit filed against Bush and others in 2004, claims his unit was ordered to create the "perfect terrorist plan" using commercial airliners as weapons and the Twin Towers as their target.
The head of the 1976 mock terrorist plan was Lt. Michael Teague of Long Island, who McNiven says was given specific orders by higher-ups in the military to use the Twin Towers as the terrorist target.
Also, even in 1976, nobody gave much thought to terror or terrorist strikes in the U.S. because terrorism wasn't even being reported much on an international scale at the time.

 Federal Land Policy and Management Act of 1976
This year marks the 25th anniversary of the passage of the Federal Land Policy and Management Act of 1976 -- a landmark piece of legislation that changed not only the Bureau of Land Management and the make-up of its workforce, but the face of the West forever.
In 1976, few anticipated the West’s rapid growth and its associated demographic and economic changes, all of which have placed increased demands on the public lands.
But because of the insight and vision of the people who crafted it, FLPMA provides us with the tools we need to cooperatively and creatively manage the public lands, and in the process, dispel the notion that a variety of uses and resources cannot co-exist.

 Ed Koch Threatened With Assassination in 1976
According to documents obtained by Dinges and interviews he conducted for The Condor Years, the CIA station chief in Montevideo received information in late July 1976 that two high-level Uruguayan intelligence officers had discussed their ability to have Chile's secret police, DINA, send agents to the United States to kill Koch.
Only after Chilean operatives carried out the September 21, 1976, assassination of former ambassador Orlando Letelier did the CIA warn Koch and share the intelligence with the FBI and the State Department, according to the new book.
In mid October 1976, Koch wrote to the Justice Department asking for FBI protection and requesting "any additional information relating to this matter in your files…which I should be made aware of." None was provided to him.

 1976: The swine flu scare
On the cold afternoon of February 5, 1976, an Army recruit told his drill instructor at Fort Dix that he felt tired and weak but not sick enough to see military medics or skip a big training hike.
Thus was born what would become known to some medical historians as a fiasco and to others as perhaps the finest hour of America's public health bureaucracy.
The swine flu case of 1976 forever reduced confidence in public health pronouncements from the government and helped foster cynicism about federal policy makers that continues to this day.

 Defra, UK - Wildlife & countryside - Global wildlife - Dangerous Wild Animals Act 1976
The Dangerous Wild Animals Act of 1976 was originally introduced as a private members bill in response to public concern about the keeping of dangerous pets, especially big cats.

On the main body of the Act, we are mindful of the current failings of the Act and are intending to develop new options for Ministers which aim to deliver the public safety benefits of the legislation and also look to reduce the level of regulatory burden on local authorities and animal keepers.

 DVD Verdict Review - Blue Oyster Cult: Live 1976
One of their concerts I saw was in 1976, the year they came out with their biggest hit "Don't Fear the Reaper." So when I first got my DVD player, and didn't yet know about sites like DVD Verdict, I went looking to see if they had anything on DVD.
One cover they always did that I thought was the best version anyone had done was "Born to be Wild." That song, along with 10 others among my favorites, is on this disc.
Seeing those guys like they were in 1976, and even some really dated stuff like lead singer Eric Bloom ranting about the gate guards confiscating patron's pot stashes brought back some memories.
