Posted at Lew Rockwell's blog, this is apparently the US military's entire plan for internment camps.

Looks to be an interesting read. I wish there was a short version though. 300+ pages...someone needs to make a highlights video. Thanks for posting.

These endorsements by: Andrew Napolitano in his book Lies the Government Told You has described as "the best monitor of government excess in America today, and Congressman Ron Paul has written that he "especially value[s]" the site.

Hoping for the best but planning for the worst...

further - if people actually read it - it contains zero reference to operations withing the CONUS

its a fairly standard manual - that contains nothing that does not apply to operations overseas involing foreign combattants , POWs and civillians

lastly - claiming that this is a manual for US internment camps is idiocy on a par with claiming that FM 3-09 -12 is a manual for using artillery on US cities
