The Federal Emergency Management Agency is spending $22 million
dollars per year on a terror training program within a real town
in New Mexico where helicopters buzz overhead in the middle of
the night, mock nuclear explosions are drilled and "suicide
bombers" are taken down by SWAT teams who pull citizens out
of their homes.
The AP reports that what makes Playas, New Mexico
an ideal training ground is the fact that it is a real town with
real people living there.
There are a number of families in the town that
are totally unconnected to the training and go about their daily
lives while martial law scenarios are played out around them.
"Just a few years ago it was a ghost town abandoned
after a large mining company pulled out," the AP's Rich Matthews
reports. "Today, it's a training ground for the unthinkable:
Nuclear attacks, invasions and suicide bombings in the United
"We have helicopters in the middle of the night
flying overhead and explosions that can take place at all hours,"
resident Kim Kvame says. "It gets to be a part of the background
noise that just lets you know you're home after a while."

So, SWAT teams and troops running around with choppers
circling overhead, sounds real homely.
Why does the Federal government believe that terrorists
would be residing in sleepy small town America?
Why is it important to train SWAT teams to pull
people out of homes in American towns?
The answer is simple, because the Federal government
sees the citizens of America as possible insurgents or terrorists.
We have previously
reported on the Homeland Security initiative titled
ENDGAME, which sets as its goal the removal of "all
removable aliens" and "potential terrorists."
Playas is owned by New
Mexico Tech, constituting a division of the university's
Energetic Materials Research and Testing Center. There are plans
to expand the center dramatically in the near future.
In 2004 New Mexico Tech bought the town using a
$5 million grant from the Department of Homeland Security to begin
converting the town into the nation’s primary counter-terrorism
training facility. Read all about it and view more pictures here.
We have previously
reported on many incidents where purpose built mock
American towns and cities have been used for so called terror
training, yet in this case the Feds have gone a step further.
This is not the first FEMA terror training program
to raise serious questions.
In May 2006, we exposed
the existence of a nationwide FEMA program which
is training Pastors and other religious representatives to become
secret police enforcers who teach their congregations to "obey
the government" in preparation for the implementation of
martial law, property and firearm seizures, mass vaccination programs
and forced relocation.
A whistleblower who was secretly enrolled into the
program told us that the feds were clandestinely recruiting religious
leaders to help implement Homeland Security directives in anticipation
of a potential bio-terrorist attack, any natural disaster or a
nationally declared emergency.
The first directive was for Pastors to preach
to their congregations Romans 13, the often taken out of context
bible passage that was used by Hitler to hoodwink Christians
into supporting him, in order to teach them to "obey the
government" when martial law is declared.
It was related to the Pastors that quarantines,
martial law and forced relocation were a problem for state authorities
when enforcing federal mandates due to the "cowboy mentality"
of citizens standing up for their property and second amendment
rights as well as farmers defending their crops and livestock
It was stressed that the Pastors needed to preach
subservience to the authorities ahead of time in preparation for
the round-ups and to make it clear to the congregation that "this
is for their own good."
Pastors were told that they would be backed up by
law enforcement in controlling uncooperative individuals and that
they would even lead SWAT teams in attempting to quell resistance.
Though some doubted the accuracy of this report
at the time due to its fundamentally disturbing implications,
the story was later confirmed by a KSLA 12 news report, in which
participating clergy and officials admitted to the existence of

In 2002, FEMA sought bids from major real estate
and engineering firms to construct
giant internment facilities in the case of a chemical,
biological or nuclear attack or a natural disaster.
