American Internment Camps, 2

Continued from "American Internment Camps?"

A couple of weeks ago, I posted some links to information about internment camps being prepared to imprison large numbers of people. I included a link to an article by Chuck Baldwin, "Why Are Internment Camps Being Built?"

Baldwin has written a follow-up article called, "More on Internment Camps". In his article, he included a link to this item about the April reactivation of the 40th Military Police Internment and Resettlement Battalion.

In the article he also stated,

Criticism and name-calling aside, after reading the responses from hundreds of readers (and examining the evidence they submitted), I am more convinced than ever that our federal government is, indeed, constructing large numbers of internment camps. And as one might expect, I heard from a large number of military and law enforcement personnel, which made the evidence even more compelling.

After relating how one retired US Air Force colonel tried to justify the existence of the camps on the basis of readiness for nuclear attack, Baldwin wrote:

Several military men who wrote me shared the colonel's sentiment. Some of them expressed concern about the impact these plans will have on freedom and constitutional government, while others seemed completely unconcerned regarding any potential encroachment that plans of military action against American citizens might have upon the Bill of Rights. What is enlightening, however, is the fact that, regardless of the personal position taken, none of the military personnel who wrote me discounted the existence of internment camps. (Emphasis added.)
