The motivation does seem suspect.
I've suspected for a while that these "drills" are being stepped up for at least a few reasons:

2) to condition people for more attacks, not really to prevent them
3) to make actual attacks coinciding again with yet more drills less predictable and to make the coincidence less obvious
