    Rex 84 - FEMA's Katrina fuck up was a dry run for coming concentrations camps nationwaide ?

    Global Research has a story (20th August) that FEMA is set to act to organise and impose martial law under a plan called Rex 84 (readiness Exercise - geddit ?) which stems from the days of Iran contra.

    It seems it was reported in the Iran Contra hearings in 1987, and subsequently reported (it appears only by them) by the Miami Herald on July 5, 1987:as a plan to set up camps / prisons.

    "These camps are to be operated by FEMA should martial law need to be implemented in the United States and all it would take is a presidential signature on a proclamation and the attorney general's signature on a warrant to which a list of names is attached."

    Hurricane Katrina is said to have provided FEMA with a chance to “dry run” its unconstitutional powers in New Orleans, rounding up "refugees" ( “evacuees”) and "relocating" them in various camps. "Some evacuees are being treated as ‘internees’ by FEMA," writes former NSC employee Wayne Madsen:

    “Reports continue to come into Wayne Madsen Report that evacuees from New Orleans and Acadiana [the traditional twenty-two parish Cajun homeland] who have been scattered across the United States are being treated as ‘internees’ and not dislocated American citizens from a catastrophe"

    Sharp eyed readers of the NYT yesterday will have seen a map and read an article across 2 pages on page A 20 / 21 "Hurricanes Escape Routes : One was forced, another chosen"

    NOLA's population pre Katrina was approx 480,000 it is now put at 200 - 250,000. suggesting a diaspora of at least 200,000. A map (see above) by Matthew Ericsoon /NYT shows the details as known.This information was available from the US Post Office of people who had changed their forwarding address from the parishes that were damaged

    They Moved to
    New address in NOLA 76,000
    Elsewhere in Southern Louisiana 52,000
    Houston 35,000
    Dalls Forth Worth / Austin / San Antinio 24,000
    Atlanta 12,000
    Washington /Chicago/ South California 4,500
    Memphis 3,000
    Florida 1,500
    The rest were spread across many cities in hundreds and the odd thousands.

    If this was a dry run for FEMA of Rex 84 it looks a strange distribution.. especially as the diaspora looks to be fairly fixed with the folks being moved, rapidly putting down roots, having lost and left everything behind they coudn't carry. Maybe it was just a clever plan to send more home help to the booming cities of Texas and Atlanta ( grown 400% in 20 years).... or a neat trick to clog their school systems and healthcare provision with NOLA's black urban poor ?

    Sounds just like the fuck up you can expect from Brownie, (you're doin' a great job) , Chertoff (his mom was El Al's first air stewardess) and FEMA - so much for the threat of prison camps across America.

    Lord Patel doubts whether FEMA could organise a Boy Scout Camp. Posted by Picasa
