On Tuesday, Sept. 6, 2005, armed and badged black-uniformed men and a tall woman in a power boat appeared at the door of one of his properties that he, his tenant, and two others were using as a meeting place because it still had a working phone. Zeitoun was in the middle of a call with his brother Ahmad, a ship captain, calling from Spain to repeat his pleas to Zeitoun to leave town.
With no questions asked and no questions allowed, Zeitoun and the others were handcuffed and shackled at automatic weapon-point, dropped into the boat, and taken away; the officers didn’t secure the house or treat it as a crime scene and left it unlocked, which meant it was eventually completely stripped and looted.
Zeitoun documents a little-known fact: the existence of “Camp Greyhound,” an outdoor jail built in New Orleans’ central bus station within hours of the hurricane’s landfall at the behest of the federal Department of Homeland Security and FEMA. Similar to Guantanamo Bay, Camp Greyhound (the guards’ name for it) was a kennel, runs of wire fencing and concrete flooring; there was nothing to sit or sleep on, and toilet facilities were portables outside the enclosures. Power was provided by a running diesel locomotive parked within yards of the cages, providing a continuous deafening hum and diesel pall.
Political strategist Mike Baker sees something even more sinister at play. Obama's decision to have a domestic law enforcement agency rather than a foreign intelligence service conduct interrogations opens the door to American citizens being targeted.
"We're already heard from the likes of Secretary of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano and Attorney General Holder that they believe the terrorists are pro-life, pro-gun and anti-government conservatives who view the federal government as intrusive. Now, instead of the CIA interrogating Guantanamo detainees or Taliban and Al Qaeda fighters in Afghanistan, Obama's Justice Department -- especially the FBI -- will be following direct orders from the White House on whom they must interrogate," warns Baker.
Baker points to the extraordinary number of "Czars" appointed by President Obama -- 45 at last count. He believes that Obama is by-passing his own Cabinet because "these so-called Czars do not have to testify before congress or watchdog committees and they do not even have to be confirmed."

i actually checked out one of the alleged camps in Idaho. It was just an old abandoned japanese internment camp from ww2. Not much left to it except some rotting buildings.
i say this is bunk. if there are hundreds of camps across the country, then where are the pics and videos ? ive seen one video and one or two pics of places labelled camps but they were debunked ages ago.
where are the people that work these empty camps ? surely one or two guards from the hundreds of camps would have come forward by now and said yes these places exist ?
no pics, no testimony, nothing to prove these places exist.
Given enough troops, material and equipment any vacant land available or
set aside for this purpose can be readied in a matter of a few weeks for
interminate camps. ^Y^

If you guys really want to know, the United States is getting ready to declare marshal law. Once a possible pandemic breaks out occurs, the entire population will receive a mandatory flu shot. You guys are not far from the truth, but the facts you are reading into are being translated with a tint of paranoia.

Why are there endless reports of these supposed camps, yet no one can actually produce pictures of them? We should be able to get some recent, live footage, you would think.

I still contend it's impossible.. so long as we are armed, the Government could never actually put us in camps... unless we were so petrified we gave our guns away.... Even if they somehow tricked us into the camps, through Flu shots or what ever.. it would never work unless they got our guns. When they get our guns, the Republic will have taken it's last breath.
