According to spokesman Sgt. Mike Kots, readiness NCO Company A, 1st Battalion - 121st Infantry his unit had planned on a 4 day training operation in a small Iowa town where they would raid suspected weapons dealers and conduct gun confiscations against U.S. citizens.
“One of the techniques we use in today’s political environment is cordon and knock,” Kots explained. “We ask for the head of the household, get permission to search, then have them open doors and cupboards. The homeowner maintains control. We peer over their shoulder, and the soldier uses the homeowner’s body language and position to protect him.”
Commanders of the Iowa National Guard had hoped to conduct military operations among the civilian population in the town of Arcadia to include “road blocking portions of the town and searching homes and vehicles,” that is until their plans where given national exposure by syndicated talk show host Alex Jones.
The story first broke in the Daily Times herald of Carroll, Iowa and was quickly picked up and catapulted into the national spotlight by Infowars publisher and radio host Alex Jones. Mr. Jones immediately procured a telephone interview with Iowa National Guard spokesman Lt. Col. Greg Hapgood. Hapgood told the Infowars listening audience that taking over an American town to conduct martial law training was normal and perfectly acceptable, contradicting of over 100 years of law and military tradition established at the end of the U.S. Civil War.
Mr. Jones who was clearly disappointed in Lt. Col. Hapgood’s explanation of why a military exercise pitting U.S. Forces against U.S. citizens was a good idea called on his highly educated and knowledgeable audience to contact authorities in Iowa and express their concerns over what appears to be a martial law preparedness drill.
In less than 24 hours Lt. Col. Hapgood would tell World Net Daily that the operation was scaled back and no longer involves the invasion of Arcadia. Hapgood claims the change in plans was based on troop evaluation and not public outcry.
A big round of applause goes out to Alex Jones, his staff and the millions of freedom loving Americans determined to protect our Constitution.
