Last week at least 2 anonymous sources reported to the Conservative Examiner that National Guard troops were on the move inside the country. As the days have progressed more reports surfaced, and several bloggers wrote that troops have been spotted on the move in massive convoys in various parts of the nation.
One source reported that U.N. ‘peacekeeping’ troops were part of the movement.
These reports that began as a small trickle of unconfirmed claims have now become a raging dam-burst as citizens in at least a dozen states have reported such unusual movements of troops.
Free Press International reported the following:
Eye witness reports from Georgia, Minnesota, Alabama, Kansas, and perhaps Texas suggest large scale mobilizations and deployment in progress for National Guard Units.
We were under the impression that National Guard in Georgia were being deployed to help evacuate Florida in the event of toxic fumes from the oil spill if the government decided to light the booms. However, we are seeing reports from multiple states throughout the country.
One citizen from Kansas stated the following:
My old friend who’s in the army and just got back from Iraq and is not due to go to Afghanistan until August was just deployed too. He’s reserved in Kansas, so it’s definitely not the oil. I don’t know if everyone has been deployed, only him. I’m hoping it is something minor or just a coincidence, deployment from more than one state is DEFINITELY not a good sign.
And then this one from Texas::
I have lived in the Tomball, Texas area for about 33 years. I know what’s normal and what’s not. I also workout side and can tell you the type of helo by the sound. With that in mind.
Today I have seen wave after wave of Blackhawks pushing hard toward the east/southeast over Tomball. These things were nose-down and they were moving. VERY NOT normal. Just thought I’d FYI.
These could be training exercises or preparation for later deployment to Afghanistan. However, even military families note that it is highly unusual to witness this type of massive mobilization of Guard troops all at once, in various parts of the country.
In addition, there is this report of a United Nations convoy spotted in Pennsylvania.
No official word has come from the U.S. Military or the Administration on these unusual mobilizations. Updates will be provided as more information becomes available.
Here’s more from FreePressInternational:
The New York Air National Guard’s Eastern Air Defense Sector (EADS) is participating in a large scale North American Aerospace Defense Command and U.S. Northern Command air defense exercise designed to train military members to respond to potential scenarios that could affect the Continental U.S. May 16-20.
EADS is performing its homeland defense mission of detecting, identifying, tracking and possibly scrambling aircraft. Although held in Georgia, members from the unit will control the exercise missions from Rome, N.Y.
