Army Special Operations Command pushes back against alarmist claims about upcoming exercise
By Jon Harper / Stars and Stripes
Published: March 21, 2015

WASHINGTON — U.S. Army Special Operations Command is pushing back against alarmist claims that an upcoming U.S. military exercise is a preparation for imposing martial law or subduing right-leaning groups and individuals.

Conspiracy theories about the exercise, known as JADE HELM 15, appeared online this week. Some commentators railing against the event referred to an online slide show allegedly created by USASOC, which outlined a special operations exercise slated to take place across multiple states, outside the confines of U.S. military bases. In the slide show, a map of the southwest region of the United States labels Texas and other territory as “hostile” or “insurgent pocket.” The document also refers to coordination with law enforcement agencies.

Officials at USASOCM were not able to immediately verify the authenticity of the slide show because their computer firewalls prevented them from accessing the websites where the document appeared.

Army Lt. Col. Mark Lastoria, a USASOC spokesman, confirmed that there is an upcoming exercise called Jade Helm 15 which is scheduled to take place this summer at locations in Texas, Arizona, New Mexico, Utah, Colorado, California and Nevada. But he denied the event is preparation for some sort of military takeover.

“That notion was proposed by a few individuals who are unfamiliar with how and why USASOC conducts training exercises,” he said in an email. “This exercise is routine training to maintain a high level of readiness for Army Special Operations Forces because they must be ready to support potential missions anywhere in the world on a moment’s notice.”

He said the only thing unique about this particular exercise, which is slated to take place between July 15 and Sept. 15, is “the use of new challenging terrain” which was chosen because it is similar to conditions special operations forces operate in overseas.

Lastoria said coordination with local law enforcement is necessary for safety reasons because some of the training will take place outside of military bases where civilian agencies have jurisdiction.

He said his office has been receiving a lot of calls from people who heard about the exercise and are concerned about “the nature of the training objectives.”

Realistic military training gets city approval

The council approved a request by Jade Helm’s Thomas Mead for city approval and support for a planned Realistic Military Training. Jade Helm is an eight-week joint military and interagency unconventional warfare exercise to be held in Bastrop County. The military will be stationed near Kovar but some activities are planned within the city limits of Smithville including the airport.

The estimated economic impact of the event is $150,000 for the economy countywide, said Mead.

The RMT will be held July 15 through Sept. 15 in seven states, with over 1,200 service members and the majority of activities held in nine communities in Texas. Around 60 personnel will be in Bastrop County.

Risk assessment plans will be created and the publicity department will stay in close contact with local law enforcement throughout the exercise to allay public concerns.

Mead received approval and support from the Bastrop County Commissioners Court at its Jan. 26 meeting.

Mead stated that all exercises are conducted with safety in mind and that local law enforcement is always kept involved in the process. Still in the planning stages, Mead is currently recruiting resources for the exercise.

Dell City, 86 miles east of El Paso, is among more than a dozen Texas cities scheduled to take part in Operation Jade Helm, a covert military exercise intended, in part, to test citizen's ability to spot suspicious activity in their town.

Then again we know their MO is to try to keep their options open and kill as many birds with one operational stone as possible and increasingly, be unconcerned about the obviousness of it all.

So perhaps this is also plausibly preparations for a long hot summer in already drought stricken areas filled with people with guns and grievances. Not to mention, I wonder if a long and hot enough summer could lead to regional brown/blackouts?

U.S. Special Operations holding urban warfare drills in Broward County
By Linda Trischitta, Staff writer
March 17, 2015, 10:50 AM

RELATED:
▼ If you see unusual police activity, it may just be a federal military drill
▼ U.S. Special Operations Forces are practicing urban warfare tactics in Broward County before deploying abroad


Police agencies in Broward County are assisting members of the U.S. Special Operations Forces who are undergoing urban warfare training..

The exercises began Monday, will last until March 27 and will be held at locations that the military will not disclose.

U.S. Special Operations is commanded out of Tampa and has staged such "routine drills" in cities throughout the country, a spokesman said.

The 200 military personnel are from the four branches: Air Force, Army, Marines and Navy.

The goal is to prepare participants in realistic, unfamiliar training conditions before they deploy for combat overseas. Those urban locations can't be replicated on a practice range, the military said.

The exercises will happen in a variety of places but will not be held at the beaches, the Everglades, malls or large population centers, the spokesman said.

Local police departments are tasked with managing traffic and keeping spectators away.

Personally, when I hear of intentional "suspicious activity," I have to wonder if this is meant to mask real suspicious activity. If they get caught, their response will obviously be, "But it was an exercise! We weren't really trying to put anthrax/ebola/LSD in the local water supply."

Operation: Jade Helm to train elite forces
Sun, Mar 29 2015, 12:28 PM EDT

BASTROP - The United States Army Special Operation Command is planning to train in counties and towns across the Western United States.

"Jade Helm" is a two-month long exercise with a combination of elite military forces designed offer realistic military training.

As Adam Racusin reports despite any fears of militarization officials feel there's no need to worry.

The small and picturesque streets of Bastrop Texas offer an inviting scene to locals and welcome getaway for people trying to escape big city life.

But in a few months there will be another group moving into the area; members of the United States Military.

"I don't think people here are intimidated by military operations in our community although it will raise some eyebrows" says Charlie Amos, a Bastrop resident.

Operation Jade Helm is expected to launch in at least 20 cities across seven states in the South Western US. With more than twelve hundred participants, in Texas alone, ranging from members of the Navy Seals to Army Special Forces, and Marine Special Operations.

"As long as people know what's going on they will be accepting of it" exclaims Joan Armstrong, a Bastrop resident.

"Part of me I get it but at the same time part of me with what goes on in the world today is just a little Leary" says Tracy Stamper.

County Officials report the military pitched them on the idea, with a presentation about what people can expect.

It says there will be an increased military presence, Personnel may be carrying weapons with blank ammo, and some individuals may conduct suspicious activities.

"I wrote them a letter and invited them to come," Bastrop County Judge Paul Pape believes there's nothing to the rumors of covert warfare and martial law coming to cities across the country.

Just a less conventional training exercise to help hone their skills.

"What I see here is an opportunity for a portion of our military to be better prepared and better trained to do work that has to be done to secure America’s interest around the world and here at home," says Bastrop Judge Paul Pape.

Some of the training could entail ground and air operations, and Special ops members learning to work within the community without being noticed.

While the idea might spark skepticism people we spoke with felt mostly at ease.

"Not knowing the purpose it wouldn't bother me if its specific training because they're here to protect us," I'm Adam Racusin reporting.

Some Americans Think the Army is Prepping for Modern-Day Martial Law?! (Video)
Mar 26, 2015 // 10:46pm 
As seen on The Kelly File

Conspiracy theories are running wild over the Army’s planned multi-state training exercise this summer.

Green Berets, Navy SEALs and Special Operations forces will conduct realistic training exercises from July to September across the southwest – including in 17 Texas cities.

The exercise, called Jade Helm 15, has critics worried that the Army is preparing for modern-day martial law. Some are even calling it “the Texas takeover.”

Officials say the goal is to see if groups of Special Forces can move around a civilian population without being noticed and can handle different threat scenarios. The military says that these are vital skills when it comes to the ever-changing threats that military members face.

But a slideshow about the training exercise shows Texas labeled as simulated "hostile" territory, which prompted concern from some Americans.

Pentagon and local law enforcement are trying to knock down the rumors and let everyone know that the feds have no plans to take over Texas.

Watch Trace Gallager’s report above. Read the Army’s press release below:

Members of U.S. Army Special Operations Command will train with other U.S Armed Forces units July 15 through Sept. 15 in a multi-state exercise called Jade Helm 15.

USASOC periodically conducts training exercises such as these to practice core special warfare tasks, which help protect the nation against foreign enemies. It is imperative that Special Operations Soldiers receive the best training, equipment and resources possible.

While multi-state training exercises such as these are not unique to the military, the size and scope of Jade Helm sets this one apart. To stay ahead of the environmental challenges faced overseas, Jade Helm will take place across seven states. However, Army Special Operations Forces (ARSOF) will only train in five states: Texas, Arizona, New Mexico, Utah and Colorado. The diverse terrain in these states replicates areas Special Operations Soldiers regularly find themselves operating in overseas.

The training exercise will be conducted on private and public land with the permission of the private landowners, and from state and local authorities. In essence, all exercise activity will be taking place on pre-coordinated public and private lands.

The public can expect nothing much different from their day-to-day activities since much of exercise will be conducted in remote areas. The most noticeable effect the exercise may have on the local communities is an increase in vehicle and military air traffic and its associated noise. There will also be economic gain: an increase in the local economy, in fuel and food purchases and hotel lodging.

This exercise is routine training to maintain a high level of readiness for ARSOF since they must be ready to support potential missions anywhere in the world at a moment’s notice.

During this eight-week period, ARSOF soldiers will use this opportunity to further develop tactics, techniques and procedures for emerging concepts in Special Operations warfare.

USASOC intends to conduct the exercise safely and courteously while providing the best possible training available for the nation's Army Special Operations Forces. State and local officials are being informed of the scope of Jade Helm and will continue to be updated as the exercise progresses.
