The U.S. Internment Camp: Prison for a New American Century

A newly uncovered Army document details U.S. internment camps on American soil.

The topic of civilian internment camps in the United States has been largely dismissed as a paranoid “conspiracy theory” by the mainstream media. Recent legislation and newly uncovered government documents, however, reveal the sad truth: The United States is quickly descending into a full-blown authoritarian police state.

NDAA 2012: Patriot Act Part Two
On December 31, 2011, while the majority of Americans were busy watching balls drop and drinking themselves into oblivion, President Obama quietly signed into law the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2012. This unprecedented legislation effectively codified the executive branch’s authority to indefinitely detain American citizens without trial, stripping them of their Constitutional right to due process and habeas corpus.

Under this legislation, if you are simply “suspected” of providing support to a group the government classifies as a terrorist organization—or an affiliate or associated force of said organization—you can be rounded up and detained until the end of the “War on Terror”—a war, according to policy makers, that has no end.

Over the course of this endless and prefabricated war, the government’s definition of “terrorist” has slowly shifted post 9/11 from Al Qaeda, a group of dubious power initially funded and supported by the CIA and the Pakistani ISI, to such “domestic terrorists” as Occupy Wall Street protestors, pro-life advocates and Ron Paul supporters. When the FBI set-up a band of dimwitted “anarchist” patsies to plant a fake bomb on a bridge, it became blatantly clear who the government now sees as the true enemy of the state. This has been the FBI’s modus operandi for quite some time.


The default argument against the existence of internment camps designed for Americans has always been that the United States government would never put its own citizens in prison camps–couldn’t happen. It’s unfortunate how quickly some people are willing to forget that our government has already done exactly that; during World War II, citizens of Japanese descent were rounded up and locked away, just for being of a certain ancestry. Now the question becomes: Would they do it again? Unfortunately, the answer seems to be “yes.”

A U.S. Army field manual, FM 3-39.40 Internment and Resettlement Operations, has been leaked to Public Intelligence that outlines in vivid detail exactly how these civilian internment camps are to be run.

Martial Law In America
This disturbing 326-page document is intended to provide guidance for commanders and staff on internment and resettlement (I/R) operations in order to effectively deal with I/R populations, including U.S. military prisoners, civilian internees, retained personnel and enemy combatants.

In the event of a “military or civil conflict” or “natural or man-made disaster,” the U.S. Army is to partner with both international and domestic agencies, including the United Nations, the Department of Defense, the Department of Homeland Security and FEMA to support these I/R operations.

This field manual comes to light, coincidentally, just a few weeks after it was revealed that DHS and ICE are stocking up on several hundred million rounds of hollow point ammunition.

While the military undoubtedly has contingency plans for numerous war-time scenarios with and in foreign nations, this document reveals that these I/R facilities can be established within the United States. In section 2-40 of the manual, it states:
The I/R tasks performed in support of civil support operations are similar to those during combat operations, but the techniques and procedures are modified based on the special OE associated with operating within U.S. territory and according to the categories of individuals (primarily DCs) to be housed in I/R facilities.
Currently, U.S. citizens are protected from the military enforcing civilian laws within the United States or its territories thanks to the Posse Comitatus Act. However, given Obama’s willingness to usurp Constitutional protections at the drop of a helmet, I’m not holding my breath that a second Obama term or another puppet administration won’t attempt to overturn Posse Comitatus in the future. It certainly wouldn’t be the first time.

While the passing of the National Defense Authorization Act 2012 was a dark day in American history, the methods of human control, discipline and degradation outlined in this official field manual go beyond the pale. We’ll touch on a few of the more egregious examples of the unconstitutional, liberty-stripping language contained within FM 3-39.40, but we encourage you to read the document for yourself here to get a full picture.

Inside the Camps
Complete with razor wire, guard towers, maximum security areas with individual cells and patrol roads, it is clear these civilian internment camps are not designed to merely protect displaced citizens from “natural or man-made disaster[s]”.

Once captured,soldiers working at the camps are to “process detainees using the ‘search, silence, segregate, speed, safeguard and tag (5 Ss and T)’ technique.” The most concerning of these is “silence.” Soldiers manning the camps must “prevent detainees from communicating with one another or making audible clamor such as chanting, singing or praying.” The soldiers are also to “silence uncooperative detainees by muffling them with a soft, clean cloth tied around their mouths and fastened at the back of their heads.” It goes even further:
6-16 Military police must not speak to detainees except to give orders or directions. Do not let detainees talk to or signal each other during the processing phase at any echelon. This prevents them from plotting ways to counter security, planning escapes, or orchestrating other undesirable activities. Detainees who refuse to be silent may require a muffle (an item used to prevent speech or outcry without causing injury to the detainee, such as cloth) in certain tactical situations.
If it is suggested that this document is merely a contingency plan to deal effectively with a natural disaster, these barbarous tactics of control surely indicate otherwise. To make matters even more sinister, you will be outfitted with your very own “Detainee Identification Band” and issued an “Internment Serial Number.”

Civilian Internees essentially have zero rights once in military detention, and since the government is now in the business of classifying activists and protestors as potential national security threats, it only makes sense for them to attempt to not only silence dissidents, but re-educate them as well.

It goes like this: PSYOP officers “assist the military police force in controlling detainees and DCs” as well as “introduce detainees or DCs to U.S. and multinational policy.” These “PSYOP officers” are also trained to “develop PSYOP products that are designed to pacify and acclimate detainees or DCs to accept U.S. I/R facility authority and regulations”, “identify political activists”, and “plan and execute a PSYOP program that produces an understanding and appreciation of U.S. policies and actions.”

So, if you are forced into one of these camps with the belief that waging extrajudicial wars against sovereign nations without congressional approval is illegal and morally reprehensible, the PSYOP team at Camp FEMA will be happy to instruct you otherwise.

Furthermore, given the military’s vast creativity in developing so-called non violent weapons, the mind boggles at what “PSYOP products” they have in store for these I/R camps.

You will also be subject to state sponsored strip searches, forced immunizations, food rationing, and labor requirements. Step out of line? Section 6-99 informs us that:
If necessary, the military police commander or appointed officer can initiate general court-martial proceedings against detainees.
Basically, once detained, you can expect to have nearly every facet of your existence controlled and dictated by military forces. From food, clothing and money to recreation, labor, and health care, you are effectively a slave of the new American police state.

The following quote from section 6-10, sums up the entirety of American foreign policy:
Detainees are treated humanely and as EPWs until their status is determined according to DOD policy.

It may well be that these 'internment camps' exist. It may well be that Fatherland Security has purchase orders for several hundred million rounds of hollow point ammo, mobile check points, porno scanners for every transportation portal in the country etc etc. It may well be that the Indonesian guy has approved legislation that suspends habeus corpus and perhaps the whole friggin Constitution. BUT... consider that the US has spent several hundred BILLION dollars over the past decade, had many thousands of soldiers killed, tens of thousands wounded.. to pursue the WarrenTerrer in Iraq and Afghanistan (tiny tiny countries compared to the US Fatherlandt) with NO appreciable results. Sum it up: huge application of US military might, technology and treasure to no end against tiny fictitious opponents. NOW consider the military challenge of waging a military effort to subdue and control a vast geographical theatre with 350 million inhabitants of one of the most heavily armed countries in the world. How the hell do you suppose these guys could ever begin to pull it off. Think about it. We're the 99.99%

The problem with thinking that there will be at least 200,000,000 people armed and ready to take action, is "YES" the problem with tactical disadvantage, and you would be right, except for one tiny detail..

All the camps across this nation and even in other nations, would not fill up I believe much more then a few million at best, which begs the question then:

How would yo then deal with an out of control population?..

Answer:

You wouldn't, you would instead "cull the herd" and round up the remaining population across the nation is what you would do..

You see tactically it would be very much a disadvantage to try and round up people, and then you also have the problems with how "few" you can allow within the confines of a "reeducation center" (such an oxymoron thing to contemplate right?)

But a culling?... cheap effective, and simple, just body detail cleanup (which is what you will be doing if you survive and are in the camps IMO) ..

This points to a very vile system being put into the works for us, I suggest you step back and see the greater plan here, otherwise it's going to be very tough to deal with "IF" this happens...

450 million hollow point bullets were ordered by Homeland Security. They're for use INSIDE America. This takes care of the logistical problems about how to control a country with 330 million people and prisons that will hold only a small fraction of them.

After the initial resistance by the population, there won't be 330 million left to deal with and those that do survive will be tamed by fear.

My wife and decided that the worst thing that can happen is that we are killed when resisting the coming martial law.

Death comes to all of us, but we have decided to die standing up, and not on our knees.

There are many like us - quiet, almost invisible. But when the order comes to go quietly into the camps - good luck trying.

VIGILANCE - COURAGE - HONOR

Don't let anyone think for you. Get off your butt and research these issues yourself.

THEN TAKE ACTION AS YOUR CONSCIENCE DICTATES.

Each individual is responsible for their own safety/well-being. In spite of the propaganda and rhetoric, the government, politicians, police, fire department, etc. are not (nor should they be) responsible for our individual safety/well-being.

Why do we fail to hold our "leaders" accountable for their actions ? Is it because we don't want to be held accountable for our own?

We must reclaim the rights we have allowed to be usurped/denigrated, and assume the related responsibilities that support those rights.

We must not allow one word to be legislated under which we are not willing to live, and with which we are not willing to comply.

We must never assume "it could never happen to us". We must be ever vigilant by assuming and preparing for the worst. Frequently that is all it takes to prevent disaster.

We must learn from the awful history that repeats itself because people are too lazy, too naive, or too fearful to stop the "run away train" before it is too late.

Could the holocaust have been prevented if people acted/reacted before things got so far out of hand ?

Remember that taking no stand/action is the equivalent of agreement.

ALL IT TAKES FOR EVIL TO TRIUMPH IS FOR GOOD PEOPLE TO DO NOTHING !

Geez you guys. It's a manual designed to help soldiers come up with plans for helping civilians in the event of a large scale disaster like Katrina or Chernobyl, so they're not all running around dying all over the place because they can't get food or clean drinking water. Do you all REALLY think that the entire government is made of unfeeling drones who will do everything their master commands? Do you all REALLY think that the military is that way? The only person who has anything close to right is the guy who asked who we all think the military is going to side with if a doomsday scenario like the one you're all talking about comes to pass.

It doesn't matter who is president, it doesn't matter who is in congress, the American military will side with the American people. No amount of indoctrination is going to change that. I spent ten years in the Army, 6 as a Blackhawk door gunner and 4 as infantry. I went to Iraq twice, and got to know literally thousands of soldiers over that period of time. I have never met one who would choose a politician over his family.

And it's hard to "leak" a document when it's been available on the internet since it was published. If they wanted to keep this secret, they wouldn't write a freakin' FM on it and then make it available to anybody who wanted it regardless of their security clearance.

hey... none of you theorists have it right. look it up. do your research. those internment camps are designed for one thing, leaders. you remember when Obama was first elected and we saw all these militia groups pop up? where are they now? most of them are either dead or in these internment camps. where are those leaders and speakers for freedom? the people who instigated the protests and occupy wallstreet? dead or internment camps. we have mass graves in America. who is in those graves? muslims? no... muslims are almost 1/3 of the American population, and as we've seen in Iraq and the middle east, they are mindless drones who follow orders no matter what, even killing themselves and their families for their cause. while their leaders sit back in luxury. wake up people. this isn't a plot against the American people. its a plot to control American people. when things get bad people rise up. but those people who rise up are the only things between people cowering in fear and full on revolution, when you eliminate the leaders, the rest come into line, whether they know it or not. take this information My brothers and Sisters, rise up. take on these internment camps and free our comrades, if you don't... who will lead the rest of the armed americans? its one thing to have an armed population, its another for them to use their arms. they need inspiration and leadership. that's what these camps are designed to do. kill those leaders and their inspiration so that the American people wont rise up even when the time comes right in front of their face. rather than uniting we will all fight amongst ourselves making the control of us even easier when you have an army of muslims bearing down from every angle. what do you do then? die alone? yes... without leaders to organize and unite us. we will all DIE ALONE.

I would suggest that many american political leaders, police and Homeland Security personnel are de facto enemies of the people by virtue of their occupations and positions typically associated with enemy occupying forces in war and that the United States is now an occupied country. These enemies of the people are therefore criminals & fair game for capture & prosecution by the american people.
