They may be there to provide security for Govt officials. Or, assist with the looters/rioters.
They were brought in for the Bundy Ranch thing as well.
On a side note, my brother and I have been approached by a handful of other Vets, with the thought to head up and offer a unified security protection group for business owners.
The PMC may be heading there to do just that, provide security for businesses that are being damaged and stolen from.

I cannot believe some of you are still hung up on Michael Brown. This is not about Michael Brown anymore.
This is about the paramiltary occupation forces descending on American streets and trampling our Constitution whilst they tear gas and shoot the media with rubber bullets.
Still you see the SAME POSTERS over and over again repeating the words 'rioting and looting.'
Newsflash - the entire world has been watching the live feeds for the past few nights. There has been no looting. The crowd has been doing everything in its' power to contain itself while the police shoot tear gas, advance their lines, and make random arrests.
Still you see the same idiots dismissing it all because of the make believe 'looting and rioting.' Yes it happened at first - it no longer is.
The crowd is only yelling while the police are antagonizing them. Do you posters even watch the live feeds? Or do you just like talking out of your ass?
This is about our Constitution being absolutely destroyed. And even half of ATS supports it. I repeat god help us all.
...any citizen has the right to arrest a malefactor and bring him before a magistrate. "The law of England and of this country," he wrote, "has been very careful to confer no more right in that respect upon policemen and constables than it confers on every citizen." State exercise of that right through a police force had gone on so steadily that not only were citizens indisposed to exercise it, but probably not one in ten thousand knew he had it.
... every assumption of State power, whether by gift or seizure, leaves society with so much less power; there is never, nor can there be, any strengthening of State power without a corresponding and roughly equivalent depletion of social power.
