Operation Endgame Comes to Central Kentucky

Google+ Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr +

Operation Endgame sounds like something out of a James Bond film. At least that’s what I thought when I first started seeing articles written about the Homeland Security and ICE program dealing with illegal immigration. Try as I might I couldn’t get any of the links to the official documentation to link to anything. Some said ‘Removed by User’ and some even said ‘Removed by Dept. of Homeland Security’. Recent activities in the Central Kentucky area revived my interest in the subject and I was able to locate a copy of the official documentation and post it on my site.

Wikipedia has this description of Operation Endgame: 

Operation Endgame is a 2003-2012 plan under implementation by the Office of Detention and Removal Operations of the U.S. Department of Homeland SecurityBureau of Immigration and Customs Enforcement to detain and deport all removable aliens and “suspected terrorists” currently living in the United States by 2012.

The objectives of the plan are described in a memorandum from the director Anthony S. Tangemann to the Deputy Assistant Director of Field Operations dated June 27th 2003:

>

The DRO provides the endgame to immigration enforcement and that is the removal of all removable aliens. This is also the essence of our mission statement and the ‘golden measure’ to our successes.[1]

A document issued by the Office of Detention and Removal Operations titled “Strategic Plan, 2003-2012 Detention and Removal Strategy for a Secure Homeland “describes Operation Engame as follows:

>

Endgame is the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), Office of Detention and Removal (DRO) multi-year strategic enforcement plan. It stresses the effective and efficient execution of the critical service DRO provides its partners and stakeholders to enforce the nation’s immigration and naturalization laws. The DRO strategic plan sets in motion a cohesive enforcement program with a ten-year time horizon that will build the capacity to “remove all removable aliens,” eliminate the backlog of unexecuted final order removal cases, and realize its vision.[1]

Of course what good would an evil plan be without the involvement of Dick Cheney and Donald Rumsfeld? 

The contract of the Halliburton subsidiary KBR to build immigrant detention facilities is part of a ten-year Homeland Security plan titled ENDGAME, which sets as its goal the removal of “all removable aliens” and “potential terrorists.” In the 1980s Richard Cheney and Donald Rumsfeld discussed similar emergency detention powers as part of a super-secret program of planning for what was euphemistically called “Continuity of Government” (COG) in the event of a nuclear disaster. At the time, Cheney was a Wyoming congressman, while Rumsfeld, who had been defense secretary under President Ford, was a businessman and CEO of the drug company G.D. Searle. [1]

These men planned for suspension of the Constitution, not just after nuclear attack, but for any “national security emergency,” which they defined in Executive Order 12656 of 1988 as: “Any occurrence, including natural disaster, military attack, technological or other emergency, that seriously degrades or seriously threatens the national security of the United States.” Clearly 9/11 would meet this definition, and did, for COG was instituted on that day. As the Washington Post later explained, the order “dispatched a shadow government of about 100 senior civilian managers to live and work secretly outside Washington, activating for the first time long-standing plans.” [2]

What the managers in this shadow government worked on has never been reported. But it is significant that the group that prepared ENDGAME was, as the Homeland Security document puts it, “chartered in September 2001.” [3] For ENDGAME’s goal of a capacious detention capability is remarkably similar to Oliver North’s controversial Rex-84 “readiness exercise” for COG in 1984. This called for the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) to round up and detain 400,000 imaginary “refugees,” in the context of “uncontrolled population movements” over the Mexican border into the United States.

On June 17 this year Lexington’s WKYT television reported that the small town of Paris Kentucky had been taken over in a major raid that included federal agents. The area around U.S. 460 and Cypress was blocked off all day. Residents were concerned when they were forced to leave their homes and everyone coming and going had to show identification.

I went down there days after the incident and talked to the locals. I found a couple local police officers, a state police officer and two federal officers with unmarked riot gear type uniforms on. They referred all of my questions to the state police. I called the local sheriff, police department and even called the state police and couldn’t get a straight answer from any of them.

Channel 27 claims that they found out that this was a ‘drug raid’ according to their news report. However, details of the incident seem to contradict their finding. For instance, several helicopters were used and they even brought in heavy vehicles. It was reported and I was told that people’s homes were searched, everyone’s id’s were checked and the ‘word on the street’ was that it was a roundup of illegal immigrants and drug dealers. In addition, an off-site building had been acquired on the edge of town, a warehouse type facility, and those captured were later transferred to another facility under heavy security and secrecy. All of this sounds eerily similar to the plans laid out in Operation Endgame.

On August 3 of this year my brother and I were returning from the Red River Gorge when we were suddenly held behind two Winchester Kentucky police cars at the county line. They blocked both sides of the road and slowed to a crawl. This continued until the end of the Mountain Parkway where they suddenly pulled off the road and allowed everyone to pass. My brother and I videotaped this event and then I called the state police and the Winchester police asking why this event took place. Nobody could tell me or would tell me why this mass illegal detainment had taken place.

After posting this event on Youtube others came forward with stories of this happening to them. Wes Collins, a Kentucky political candidate, told of being stopped on I-64 heading East in a very similar incident. The area that Wes Collins was involved in this same type of illegal detainment is also interesting.

Winchester used to be the home of Rockwell International. Just up the road from Rockwell International is a large mobile home park named after the manufacturing plant. For several years the plant had been sitting unoccupied. Recently, however, the Bluegrass Army Depot in Avon, Kentucky acquired the building and its property. Shipments of unmarked, khaki colored military vehicles have been pouring in. I have personally driven past 3 separate convoys of shipments to this location. The property is now covered in these vehicles.

The building now has a military logo where the name Rockwell used to reside. A guard shack sits at the gate with a military security guard 24 hours a day.

The Bluegrass Army Depot in Avon that has acquired the site is now alive with activity. My father worked there in the seventies and left when the Army threatened to close the base. The base never closed but was downgraded. Years later my father was asked to return and worked there at a relatively high level until about ten years ago. During all of these periods the base was never used much for military vehicles, infantry or weaponry types of excercises. Most of the work done on this base was logistic. I drove out there recently to have a look for myself. I had been there many times in my youth and had spent many days exploring the base with my father. I am not sure if it’s Operation Endgame or not but what I am sure of is that something has changed at the base. Security was higher, military vehicles were in view and there was much more activity than in the past.

Stories of raids in small towns across the country have been commonplace in recent months on the internet. Operation Endgame claims that an increase will be seen from 2010 until 2012 with roadblocks and large raids becoming more and more common. Officials and local news stations are reporting these raids as ‘drug raids’ while local citizens seem to feel they are immigration roundups. At this time I can only report my suspicions and provide the evidence for you to review.
