Document with official letterhead announces preparation, training for takeover
U.S. military drills on American streets and roads, on public lands and in cities and towns long have prompted fears that the federal government is preparing to impose martial law.
Military vehicles are suspect whenever they’re in public, with or without cause, and suspicions have been fueled by recent massive federal power grabs such as Obamacare.
But this week a military base in Colorado is throwing cold water all over the coals of a rumor that appeared on the Internet.
The spark came from an image that purports to be from Fort Carson.
The stationery is labeled “Department of the Army, Headquarters, 4th Infantry,” and it is described as a “Memorandum for the Record.”
“Preparation for Martial Law.”
