Freedom Watch - Army Plans to Impliment "Re-Education" Camps - YES - This Applies to YOU

Army Manual for Re-Education Camps Applies to US Citizens

WTF?

I was recently brought into the awareness of the news that a Military document has surfaced and become known as the Army Manual for Re-Education Camps. Now, as per my normal routine when receiving any news from Alex Jones, I did some digging and it was hard to find that dozens of independent reporters and journalists across the web have been calling into the pentagon and verifying this information - it turns out that the army itself has verified that the document is authentic, though they deny the language that exists directly in the leaked document stating that these "re-education" camps are to be available for use in detaining American's as well as any foreigner that the army deems in need of "re-education".

What is a "Re-Education Camp"?

Some of you might be asking this question about now - I know I did. The truth is that a "re-education camp" is just a fancy bow placed on top of a big pile of poo. To be more direct - it's the "re-labeling" of an internment or detainment camp. Thankfully, Wikipedia has openly supplied us with an easy example of what a "Re-Education Camp" is, and how it's been used by the only other country to implement them (Vietnam).

Basically, Re-Education Camps have a little bit of everything in them - Productive Labor, Heavy Propaganda, Forced Indoctrination and plenty of lots of long stressful stays in luxurious FEMA style facilities for indefinite periods of time.

And going along with our Vietnamese counterparts, the army has decided that the best staff for the re-education camps with be the PSY-OPS (Psychological Operations) Department, and the aim of their game is to corner activists, political dissidents, malcontents, political leaders and anyone who might try to organize any resistance. These people will be targeted to be captured, resettled into the camps, "pacified" by means of undisclosed PSY-OPS tools and then "Re-Educated". As far as I have seen, there is nothing in the language that specifies if said detainee's would ever be released even after their "re-education", though there are some portions that do specifically say that "resettlement operations may require CIVILIANS to be "quartered" (like cattle) temporarily (less than 6 months) or semipermanently (more than 6 months)".

What The Army Has to Say

The U.S. Army Military Police School at Ft. Leonard Wood's "Tiffany Wood" (Director of the Public Affairs Office) had this to say to one reporter who sent an email inquiry:

Classification: UNCLASSIFIED Caveats: NONE

Mr. Thomas,

Here is the response from Fort Leonard Wood regarding your questions.

The document was not intended for public release. The document is intended for operations outside of the continental United States. Depending on the nature and magnitude of an event will determine the level of U.S. military involvement. Any other questions regarding the document, you will need to file a FOIA request.

Please let me know if you have any other questions.
Thank you, Tiffany
Tiffany Wood, Director, Public Affairs Office Fort Leonard Wood, MO”


Again, for those of you keeping up, an "FOIA request" is a "Freedom of Information Act" request, and it's meant to lengthen the process before governmental agencies are required to release information to the public (though they say it's the way we can get full-disclosure of information we as tax payers have a right to see).

Still, the chilling part isn't the lack of full-disclosure of information that is supposedly "unclassified". The scary part is that the army actually ADMITS that the document IS AUTHENTIC, that it exists and that under certain unexplained circumstances, they could and would use it in the ways prescribed in the manual (including against American Citizens).

How Is This Possible?

Many of you, after having read this hub and then gone to do your own research (or vice versa), maybe be now asking yourself - How is this possible? We have the Constitution, the Bill of Rights and Freedom - how is it possible that our own government and military, that we pay for and keep in business to protect us - are even able to put out a manual that could even suggest the detention of law abiding citizens?

Well, it's possible thanks to the steadfast actions of your congress and president who passed the NDAA (National Defense Authorization Act of 2012), which includes in it's pages the authority for Americans and Foreigners alike to be detained indefinitely, without charge and without the privileges of Posse Comitatus. Now, to be fair, the section that specifically allows the indefinite detention of Americans, is being fought passionately with huge levels of public pressure (and some from the 13 congressmen and women who voted no), and it looks like there is a chance it could be changed to exclude the arrest/capture and detention of American's (without due process). The only problem with that, is that they are trying to sneak in a new bill called the Enemy Expatriation Act (for those of you who didn't get it, Expatriation means "Unmaking Patriots) - which is designed to strip any and all American's (at home or abroad) of their status as American Citizens (native or otherwise), which would then make then label as "Open Season" to the draconian acts authorized in NDAA - including being "resettled" into a "re-education" camp.

Whose In Trouble?

Truthfully - EVERYONE.

The sad truth of the situation is that the NDAA and the Ex-Patriation Act are designed to target anyone, anywhere, anytime. The way they've written it, if you dissent to anything the government does, you vote for any change they don't want or you even do something as harmless posting a disapproving joke on your facebook - you could be a target. You could even be targeted for something as simple as allowing anyone to be your facebook or twitter friend, or talking to someone in a convenience store - as they may have been targeted already, and that could mark you as an accomplice, even if you had no idea who they were or what they've done with their lives.

You could even be targeted for giving some change, food or clothes to someone who is less fortunate then you, simply because they may be a veteran whose been under watch. The biggest targets though, according to the language in NDAA, the Ex-Patriation Act and the Army Manual for Re-Education Camps - if you are any sort of activist, specifically the politically resistant.

The problem here is simple this document deals with internment and resettlement, internment is for prisoners of war, they have re-education programs to try to turn them against whatever entity the USA may be fighting this is standard procedure, resettlement is moving American citizens to a safe location in the event of an attack or natural disaster. Labor and re-education etc. only applies to foreign combatants American citizens are being discussed int eh context of resettlement, American citizens would still be protected by all civil rights and liberties and resettlement is not even compulsory.

It further highlights

"the long-standing requirement to treat all individuals humanely according to applicable U.S. laws and regulations"

What the reader above still doesn't realize is that The US Government has declared war on its citizens which is why you will find many Americans or should I say prisoners in these internment camps. Wake Up. Why was the author referred to the FOIA. Have you NOt heard about the Patriot ACT or that drones can now be used in US air space. I'm NOt quite sure whether it's just wilfull ignorance or just down right stupidity. Thank God, I'm not an American, but I do care about Americans. God never blessed America, he blessed American Citizens.

On the list of the "yes" votes I see some Senators that I respect. There must be more reasoning behind this than what we are simply reading here. At least I would like to think so.

Both my senators (Murray and Cantwell) are on there, and I definitely don't respect their decisions as it is, so this only makes sense in my view.

Though I totally agree with you Peggy, there are some names on there that I'm surprised about - like Brown (MA), though as much as I have looked, I fail to see any positive logic. Though only thing that I can think is that any who might be considered "respectable" probably got blackmailed or scared into it, especially since as Rockerfeller looks to be leading the way on this one....
