With blades chopping noisily through the thick summer air, the aircraft slowly eased off the ground as Capt. Hugh Bailey and Chief Warrant Officer Lyle Harmon completed the checklist for another mission in the Alabama National Guard’s role in the Deepwater Horizon oil spill response.

Satisfied with the airworthiness, the pilots tilted the UH-72 helicopter forward and picked up air speed and altitude, headed for the flight plan’s route down the Escatawpa River in Mobile County to the Gulf of Mexico....

...This is what the Lakota was built for, a stateside mission to support the state in any aspect it needs in an emergency or in homeland security-type missions...

...the Alabama assets that have been put to work other than the National Guard, the list includes the Alabama Emergency Management Agency, the Alabama Department of Environmental Management, the Alabama Department of Public Health, the Alabama Department of Public Safety, the Governor’s Office of Faith-Based and Community Initiatives, the Alabama Forestry Commission, as well as the Alabama Department of Conservation and Natural Resources.

Sounds like someone is doing something right... until you consider the following;

Based on troop movements and the severity of the oil disaster, those without their head buried in the sand were able to deduce that the National Guard would be in Gulf areas for policing actions, and if necessary, mass evacuations.

A report from the Dallas Examiner suggests that the National Guard is now moving to secure parts of the oil-leak affected areas:

A rapid military build-up and an unconfirmed road-block maneuver is being conducted, along with a visible exodus of residents in the Barataria Bay area of Jefferson Parish in South Louisiana. This news from Intel Hub coincides with the new military rule, gently broken to the public.

Reporters ad photographers are now required to obtain from the military and carry papers in the region, starting with reporters and photographers, a psyop squarely focusing on “public victory” rather than covert military take-over in the Gulf and martial law in the region.

South Louisiana residents who have seen hurricane emergency operations for decades say they have never seen anything like this type of emergency preparedness according to the report.

...At midnight, the military moved into the Baratarria Bay area and immediately began setting up the road blocks...
This is not your run of the mill evacuation planning. Normally, this is left to local emergency responders. Considering the magnitude of the spill and potential for catastrophe it makes sense that the National Guard has been deployed. However, officials have yet to announce publicly that the National Guard has enacted a state of martial law or that evacuations are about to take place.

Other than a massive military exercise or media blackout controls, it is hard not to think that the Guard is planning for something serious, significant and large scale:

“Of course they’ll give some ‘Simple Simon’ excuses for the military and the road-blocks.

ALL THE EARMARKS of preparing for martial law... but the well is capped and everything is under control.

Hell of a job Barry!
