The following was sent to me through a friend, and I've withheld authorship because it came via email:
" October 15 to 20 our government will conduct Operation Vigilant Shield 08 and TOPOFF 4 where our military with Homeland Security and other government agencies as well as nongovernmental agencies( like BLACKWATER since used after Katrina to drag people off and confiscate their guns which later a court decision said violated our Constitutional rights ) will practice such things as MARTIAL LAW and coordination of activities in case of a terrorist attack or natural disaster. The clergy will be used to help convince us to submit to government control. When a similar exercise happened with similar government units we had 911.
"Are we about to get a false flag operation to justify a war with Iran and possibly to take us to the next level of the police state? Just a thought since we now have May 9 Presidential Directives making Bush a dictator under the right conditions; plus potential loss of any citizen's Habeas Corpus rights with the Military Commissions Act which means your Bill of Rights are gone; loss of Posse Comitatus and Insurrections Act in the John Warner Defense Authorization Act of 2007 which somewhat protected us from mainstream military being used against us; new division of the Army USARNORTH mission ready to militarize the local police and dictate to the national guard related to loss of Posse Comitatus; several hundred FEMA detention camps built and more being built by KBR as well as civilian labor camps on military bases; loss of privacy by illegal spying by 52 agencies and near 200 programs; and a host of Presidential Executive Orders and Directives that establish such things as FEMA as the government agency to take over with the President and Congress goes home. Everything is in place. You can look up the facts just as I have them in hand.
"There is much more that ties all this together. Be concerned about this Operation and where the potential could lead. It also will involve the use of clergy to help convince people to submit to the martial law and the governments takeover. View that in video (2)
"(1) Long article but explains a lot with links.
Second note, from the same person:
"Operation Solid Curtain and Citadel Shield September 2007 already took place and ties into the email sent on Operation Vigilant Shield happening next week. This all adds up to something potentially dangerous. By the way the US went to DEFCON 2 one step away during this. In this article they mention the review of the nuclear missiles "accidentally" shipped across the US ; however, its interesting to note that 12 people associated with this accident have had "accidents" and died. What are the odds? What is the connection? Please read and come to own conclusions. [author withheld by me.]
Back to Turtle talking -- I honestly don't know what to make of this, whether I should be worried or not. But, I wanted to get this posted because if these articles are correct we may suffer an enormous blow to our rights later this month. Forewarned is forearmed.
