training for ops inside the US.
I have to ask, what rank are you and what is your MOS? IIRC you are fairly new to the service and either an infantryman or artilleryman at Fort
Reilly (If I am wrong I apologize I've confused some avatars.) perhaps a Sergeant ?
NORTHCOM has had several Command Post Exercises - this is of course at the Three star and staff level. The plan exists and is exercised regularly.
There was a recent field manual rewritten to include TTP for handling American citizens in detention camps. There was a recent NORTHCOM exercise with
troops in the Midwest to test "earthquake and disaster response" . Disaster prep and dealing with civil unrest go hand in hand.
I'll find you the links if you insist but a quick Google of the things I posted will get you all you need.
While I am sure the CONPLAN and OPLANS are classified their existence is not really all that secret but I doubt we are training Joes for it yet.
At your level it’s not really all that different from any other operation. They expect you'll do as you are told after they paint the citizenry
as unreasonable, out of control and "domestic terrorists".
They will present it as a last ditch effort to preserve the nation; It will be for the good of the people and all that.
Having served 24 years in Special Operations once a few of your buddies get shot by some dissidents I'd wager you will defend yourself as you well
should. Your give a # index will cease to be about legality and more about self preservation.
All this transformation is happening at the Command and Staff training (Ask some new Majors what they taught them at CAS 3 course - I think they are
calling it something different nowadays I retired a while back.) they are war gaming how to deal with right wing extremists and domestic terrorists in
the USA. Developing all the relevant staff actions and working out all the legal issues. This is not done without a reason.
There is even a course at the War College (for Colonels and LTC) that specifically tracks them for this new emerging threat. When we get out of the
Mideast and consolidate I expect this will go into full swing.
Again, thanks for your service I don't mean to sound disparaging towards someone fairly junior in the trade but you are simply not going to be in on
this until it is too late for you to realize that is what is happening.
Don't trust the ass kissing Generals to fight it all that hard either.
