DEATH OF AMERICA: LEAKED U.S. ARMY DOCUMENT OUTLINES PLAN FOR RE-EDUCATION CAMPS IN AMERICA
Political activists would be pacified to sympathize with the government
A leaked U.S. Army document prepared for the Department of Defense contains shocking plans for âpolitical activistsâ to be pacified by âPSYOP officersâ into developing an âappreciation of U.S. policiesâ while detained in prison camps inside the United States.
The document, entitledÂ FM 3-39.40 Internment and Resettlement OperationsÂ (PDF) was originally released on a restricted basis to the DoD in February 2010, but has now been leaked online.
The manual outlines policies for processing detainees into internment camps both globally and inside the United States. International agencies like the UN and the Red Cross are named as partners in addition to domestic federal agencies including the Department of Homeland Security and FEMA.
The document makes it clear that the policies apply âwithin U.S. territoryâ and involve, âDOD support to U.S. civil authorities for domestic emergencies, and for designated law enforcement and other activities,â including âman-made disasters, accidents, terrorist attacks and incidents in the U.S. and its territories.â
The manual states, âThese operations may be performed as domestic civil support operations,â and adds that âThe authority to approve resettlement such operations within U.S. territories,â would require a âspecial exceptionâ to The Posse Comitatus Act, which can be obtained via âthe President invoking his executive authority.â The document also makes reference to identifying detainees using their âsocial security number.â
Aside from enemy combatants and other classifications of detainees, the manual includes the designation of âcivilian internees,â in other words citizens who are detained for, âsecurity reasons, for protection, or because he or she committed an offense against the detaining power.â
Once the detainees have been processed into the internment camp, the manual explains how they will be âindoctrinated,â with a particular focus on targeting political dissidents, into expressing support for U.S. policies.
The re-education process is the responsibility of the âPsychological Operations Officer,â whose job it is to design âPSYOP products that are designed to pacify and acclimate detainees or DCs to accept U.S. I/R facility authority and regulations,â according to the document.
The manual lists the following roles that are designated to the âPSYOP teamâ.
- Identifies malcontents, trained agitators, and political leaders within the facility who may try to organize resistance or create disturbances.
- Develops and executes indoctrination programs to reduce or remove antagonistic attitudes.
- Identifies political activists.
- Provides loudspeaker support (such as administrative announcements and facility instructions when necessary).
- Helps the military police commander control detainee and DC populations during emergencies.
- Plans and executes a PSYOP program that produces an understanding and appreciation of U.S. policies and actions.
Remember, this is not restricted to insurgents in Iraq who are detained in prison camps â the manual makes it clear that the policies also apply âwithin U.S. territoryâ under the auspices of the DHS and FEMA. The document adds that, âResettlement operations may require large groups of civilians to be quartered temporarily (less than 6 months) or semipermanently (more than 6 months).â
The historical significance of states using internment camps to re-educate detainees centers around the fact that it is almost exclusively practiced by repressive and dictatorial regimes like the former Soviet Union and Stalinist regimes like modern day North Korea.
We have exhaustively documented preparations for the mass internment of citizens inside America, but this is the first time that language concerning the re-education of detainees, in particular political activists, has cropped up in our research.
In 2009, the National Guard postedÂ a number of job opportunities looking for âInternment/Resettlement Specialistsâ to work in âcivilian internee campsâ within the United States.
In December last year it was also revealedÂ that Halliburton subsidiary KBR is seeking sub-contractors to staff and outfit âemergency environmentâ camps located in five regions of the United States.
In 2006,Â KBR was contracted by Homeland SecurityÂ to build detention centers designed to deal with âan emergency influx of immigrants into the U.S,â or the rapid development of unspecified ânew programsâ that would require large numbers of people to be interned.
Rex 84, short for Readiness Exercise 1984, was established under the pretext of a âmass exodusâ of illegal aliens crossing the Mexican/US border, the same pretense used in the language of the KBR request for services.
During the Iran-Contra hearings in 1987, however, it was revealed that the program was a secretive âscenario and drillâ developed by the federal government to suspend the Constitution, declare martial law, assign military commanders to take over state and local governments, and detain large numbers of American citizens determined by the government to be ânational security threats.â
Under the indefinite detention provision of the National Defense Authorization Act, which was signed by Barack Obama on New Yearâs Eve, American citizens can be kidnapped and detained indefinitely without trial.

The following portions of the document make it clear that the policies apply âwithin U.S. territoryâ (as well as abroad in countries like Iraq and Afghanistan) and that domestic federal agencies are involved.
