Personally, I find the possibility that the government has a nazi-esque extermination plan in the works outrageous.
Sen. Lindsey Graham suggested to Attorney General Alberto Gonzales a new target for the administration’s domestic operations -- Fifth Columnists, supposedly disloyal Americans who sympathize and collaborate with the enemy.
“Almost certainly this is preparation for a roundup after the next 9/11 for Mid-Easterners, Muslims and possibly dissenters. They’ve already done this on a smaller scale, with the ‘special registration’ detentions of immigrant men from Muslim countries, and with Guantanamo.”

FEMA grossly over estimated the number of trailers needed post Katrina. Many, many, were left in squalid locations (deep, deep mud in framers fields, etc), for example. I don't mean a couple 100. I mean many thousands. Many of the completely unmaintained tailors decayed to the point of total loss. Which equals total waste of taxpayer money.
The stories abound on the net (easily searchable), post Katrina, about the gross excesses and incompetence over the handling of the tailor issue. Basically, many thousands were ordered, with no investigation as to the amounts that were/are needed, and once they started rolling in by the hundreds at the time, the issue of where to put them became a total debacle. Farm land was leased (again at taxpayer expense) and rows upon rows of these trailers were delivered and subsequently left to rot in the elements.
I think Occam's razor indicated this is a move to salvage what is left in serviceable trailers and secure them in a location that is more suitable to long term storage until the next need develops.
