Earlier this week, the Department of Homeland Security’s Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) Administrator Craig Fugate met with several state governors to discuss “emergency preparedness,” according to a press release posted on FEMA’s website.“FEMA is committed to protecting and assisting our states and citizens during disasters,” said Fugate.“By working together and strengthening relationships at the state level, we can continue to build the national emergency response team which includes FEMA, as well as state, local, tribal and federal partners, the private sector and faith-based organizations. The work we are putting in now to build this team will go a long way during the next disaster.”
On July 27, FEMA will conduct National Level Exercise 2009 (NLE 09), scheduled to run through July 31.“NLE 09 will be the first major exercise conducted by the United States government that will focus exclusively on terrorism prevention and protection, as opposed to incident response and recovery,” a FEMA factsheet states. It is designated as a Tier I National Level Exercise, or TOPOFF, which are exercises conducted annually in accordance with the National Exercise Program,“which serves as the nation’s overarching exercise program for planning, organizing, conducting and evaluating national level exercises,” according to FEMA.
In addition to the participation of domestic “partners,” the FEMA exercise will include foreign troops.“This year the United States welcomes the participation of Australia, Canada, Mexico and the United Kingdom in NLE 09.” The FEMA factsheet does not explain why the participation of foreign troops is necessary.
Infowars and Prison Planet have been at the forefront of an effort to document the existence of mass graves, specifically in Phoenix and Houston. In April of this year, The Jones Report detailed the storage of thousands of plastic coffin liners in Alabama.
Finally, it should be noted that FEMA was organized specifically for martial law. On July 5, 1987, the Miami Herald reported on the existence of camps operated by FEMA “should martial law need to be implemented in the United States.” The existence of the camps and Rex 84 — short for Readiness Exercise 1984 — came to light during the Iran-Contra hearings.
“And there you have it,” writes Allen L Roland,“the real purpose of FEMA is to not only protect the government but to be its principal vehicle for martial law…. This is why FEMA could not respond immediately to the Hurricane Katrina disaster — humanitarian efforts were no longer part of its job description under the Department of Homeland Security.”
The FEMA press release states that the feds are conducting a large exercise in order to respond to “emergencies and disasters,” when in fact they are conducting a martial law exercise with not only state, local, and tribal “partners,” but foreign troops as well.
