No they didn't.
It was a PR nightmare for the feds, but lets not be stupid enough to believe that a few militia members are a threat.
Most of them do not do anything other than own a few guns and stockpile some ammo.
They don't train for long term warfare. They don't even train on the US Army's COIN TTPs.
Most of these guys, if they are doing something seriously dangerous, get arrested pretty quickly. The nation's various militias are usually low membership group of people with little interest in anything but looking cool in camo. There are VERY FEW militias in the US that can be taken seriously at all, and the government knows where they are, who the members are, and where they train.
Footage out of Fort Lauderdale, Florida shot earlier this week shows military and law enforcement practicing the internment of citizens during martial-law style training.
This type of training where military helicopters go around scaring the crap out of people has been conducted in different cities across the country and is designed to certify service members in urban environment operations for any future overseas deployments.
Local law enforcement agencies will be providing support.
. . . speaking of snipers and confrontations and armed standoffs. Hell, even Wikipedia references the federal standoff with the armed militia at Bundy Ranch. And that was just because there was a call to arms. . .
Published on Mar 29, 2015 SOCOM conducted an extraction exercise in Fort Lauderdale, Florida which has direct connections to Jade Helm 15. The US Government is conducting what amounts to acts of war on the American People.
