Dugway has a P5 facility. If they are locked down something bad is happening.

Anyone know why they would say part of an ongoing "security operation". What does that mean exactly? Are they saying they are on lockdown for security reasons because something is happening now or do they mean they have had ongoing security drills and lockdown is part of the drills. Anyone care to elaborate?

Granted this is from their site but those of you interested in some of the facilities at the base may be interested, I certainly was anyways and when I'm interested I share: www.dugway.army.mil...
As a Department of Defense (DoD) Major Range Test Facility Base (MRTFB), Dugway’s primary mission is testing United States and Allied chemical and biological (CB) defense systems and also performing nuclear, biological,and chemical (NBC) contamination survivability testing of defense materiel. With more than 50 years of experience, the Proving Ground uses its state-of-the-art laboratories and chambers in concert with extensive field test grids to fully determine the performance characteristics of items being tested.

Well it could have to do with intel about possible terrorist threats... Remember the Presidents speech last night? He sounded pretty certain something was going to be making its way into the country through the borders.

Local news has just come on, and is starting the broadcast with this as "breaking news". Sadly, they are not telling us anything we don't already know yet.
The spokesperson for the Base is attempting to get further information from the Base Commander right now. And they do have a reporter at the Base, talking to employees who cannot get in right now. They said they will have some of that later in the broadcast.
