The internet is buzzing with alarm over the report by Claire P. Metz that the 1st Battalion 265 Air Defense Artillery is mobilized for duty in Washington D.C.:
The 265th is part of Operation Noble Eagle.
They are ordered by the president to the nation’s capital, where they will operate high-tech weapons systems against any potential air threat.
I emailed Ms Metz and asked, Clair, are these troops replacing other troops or is something totally new to D.C.?
She replied, Mike, they are replacing a team from ohio… claire metz
Mike: Thanks for your reply. Shouldn’t that bit of information been mentioned in the story? Every kook in the country thinks Bush is about to declare martial law or is preparing for some terrorist attack.
It was reported… in the introduction to our piece… Thanks Mike
Clair that is not correct. Here is what everyone is quoting which is printed over your name. Where is your introduction?
Sometimes they shorten details for the internet… but it was there when we did the story Mike…
Clair I just watched the lead in and your report on the web and there is NOTHING in your report that says that they are replacing any outfit.
You judge for yourself:
Claire responds: wierd (sic) mike, because it was in there… i’ll check into it… claire
I Googled “Troops Deploy To Nation’s Capital” and there 1,170,000 entries. Besides just reporting the story, here are a few of the remarks:
Blacklisted news reports the story – BlackListed News is Your Total Resource for Real Uncensored Daily World News, Information, and Commentary
CRIMES AND CORRUPTION OF THE NEW WORLD ORDER NEWS – ALARM BELLS, ALARM BELLS, America!!!
Nowpublic – Could this deployment be in preparation for the upcoming protests in Washington on September 15th? Are these troops to be used against USA’ns who will be exercising their constitutional rights and responsibilities? I suppose we’ll know soon enough.
How many of you remember the Chicago riots?
Clipmarks – Life as we know it may soon be over folks.
I love this one: From Yahoo Answers:
Wow thats very interesting and also kind of scary.
This could actually be a sign of many things. Washington may have had a threat, Bush could be getting ready to declare a state of emergency, martial law, it could even mean Bush is staging a coup. Great question and link. Thanks
Edit: Rumor has it that they are deployed just in time for the big protest march on Washington in Sept.
