FISA SURVEILLANCE LAW PREEMPTS MILITARY SURVEILLANCE OF DOMESTIC TARGETS: IOWA STRAW POLL


Following the unconstitutional FISA law, Iowa will be running one of the largest military operations since the 15 drills on September 11, 2001[/size
The operation was first leaked on a military blog, then followed up hours later with a press release.
This military domestic surveillance exercise involving 135's which are boeing 707s outfitted with sensor filled bolbous noses that act as listening posts and are used to conduct large scale monitoing of the electronic activity of adversaries, AWACS and Blackhawks.  These aircraft will be gathering electronic information 24/7 on all activities during the Iowa Straw Poll this Saturday.


It was odd how the law needed to be passed so quickly, especially since someone seems to have broken from the pack after the ABC GOP Debate Sunday as demonstrated by the during debate poll and the after debate poll.

That candidate even got 89% of the vote against the supposed number one candidate in the country on DailyKos.
Do we really want to be known as the country that flies hundreds of aircract in the sky gathering surveillance on American citizens as they pracice their constitutional rights in the election process while our kids are fighting to defend freedom overseas?

*PUBLIC ADVISORY*
“IOWA FLAG” EXERCISE TO BE HELD IN NORTHWEST IOWA AUGUST 7-18
 



The Iowa Army and Air National Guard, various active duty units, and the Iowa Wing of the Civil Air Patrol (CAP) will participate in a joint training event, Iowa Flag, August 7-18 in northwest Iowa.
 

Iowa’s participation in the Global War on Terror requires joint reconnaissance and combat support missions. In combat theaters of operation, Iowa Air and Army National Guard aircraft are required to track human and vehicle movement, both friendly and hostile, through urban environments, as well as on open stretches of highway and in sparsely-populated rural areas. These types of missions, and certain Close Air Support operations, require lower altitudes not currently available in Military Operating Areas (MOAs).
 

To train effectively and in order to support multi-faceted combat missions, Iowa Air and Army National Guard units have teamed up to launch the Iowa Flag exercise. This joint exercise will include the establishment of a temporary operating area at approximately 8,000 feet which may extend as low as 1,200 feet in a rectangular area situated in northwest Iowa. The military operating area will extend from Rockwell City, south to Carroll, west to Charter Oak, north to Ida Grove, and then west to Rockwell City. Given the temporary operating altitudes during Iowa Flag, aircraft may be visible at lower altitudes as late as midnight throughout the temporary operating area. All aircraft and vehicles participating in Iowa Flag will be clearly marked, and vehicles will have U.S. Government license plates. All personnel involved in the exercise will be in uniform.
 

This multi-faceted event utilizes many different military assets from fighter aircraft to ground vehicles. Here’s what Iowans may see over the course of the exercise:
1) A number of ground teams will operate in and around the Carroll, Storm Lake, and Pocahontas areas. These teams will operate a variety of vehicles, including tractor-trailers, delivery-type trucks, Humvees, various military cargo trucks, green or blue pick-up trucks, white Civil Air Patrol vehicles, plus other equipment. Personnel will operate both in town and out in the country.
2) The ground teams will utilize sophisticated optics and communications equipment, including night vision equipment, laser ranging equipment (eye safe), satellite communications systems, and Line of Sight (LOS) radio equipment
3) Small military convoys will operate on numerous roads between Cherokee and Carroll.
4) The Iowa Wing of the CAP will be flying circular and “Figure 8” search patterns over Carroll, Storm Lake and other northwest Iowa locations during the exercise. These aircraft are white, single-engine propeller aircraft (like Cessna 172s and 182s) with CAP markings in dark blue and red. These aircraft and personnel may also utilize airports in various northwest Iowa communities.
5) For the duration of the exercise, Iowa Army National Guard UH-60 Blackhawk helicopters from Boone and Waterloo will be operating at the Carroll and Storm Lake airports, and near various northwest Iowa communities. These aircraft will be offloading and loading troops.
6) Iowa Air National Guard F-16 fighter aircraft from the 132nd Fighter Wing in Des Moines will be operating over much of northwest Iowa, from Carroll to the Minnesota border, and from Fort Dodge to west of Storm Lake. People may also see red flares in the sky (especially at night) that look like fireworks.
7) KC-135 tanker aircraft from the Iowa Air National Guard’s 185th Air Refueling Wing in Sioux City and other units and locations will be operating in areas from Spencer to Estherville. The tankers will be conducting refueling operations with F-16 fighter aircraft above 20,000 feet, but it may be possible to observe their missions. There might also be flares associated with the refueling operations.
8 ) Additional aircraft, including the RC-135, E-8 JSTARS, E-3 AWACS, and B-2 Spirit bomber may also participate but their altitude or operating orbit will make it difficult to actually see the aircraft. The B-2 bomber may be visible at a high altitude over numerous northwest Iowa communities.

Look at the military blog leaked information where they say that emergency and disaster relief personnel will be part of the war games.

It is missing on the official press release.

That usually is not a good sign.

FISA SURVEILLANCE LAW PREEMPTS MILITARY SURVEILLANCE OF DOMESTIC TARGETS: IOWA STRAW POLL


Following the unconstitutional FISA law, Iowa will be running one of the largest military operations since the 15 drills on September 11, 2001
The operation was first leaked on a military blog, then followed up hours later with a press release.
This military domestic surveillance exercise involving 135's which are boeing 707s outfitted with sensor filled bolbous noses that act as listening posts and are used to conduct large scale monitoing of the electronic activity of adversaries, AWACS and Blackhawks.  These aircraft will be gathering electronic information 24/7 on all activities during the Iowa Straw Poll this Saturday.


It was odd how the law needed to be passed so quickly, especially since someone seems to have broken from the pack after the ABC GOP Debate Sunday as demonstrated by the during debate poll and the after debate poll.

That candidate even got 89% of the vote against the supposed number one candidate in the country on DailyKos.
Do we really want to be known as the country that flies hundreds of aircract in the sky gathering surveillance on American citizens as they practice their constitutional rights in the election process?  And we do this while we are strapped militarily under the auspices of defending freedom overseas.  These auspices have been debunked an numerour occasions as we now see the real agenda with these perpetual engagements:

Afghanistan - we limit our engagements so that actual nefarious CIA trained groups can live unworried while we sit on their poppy farms and create the Sunoco natural gas line.

Iraq - If people do not yet see that Iraq was to test large scale domestic engagements, bankrupt America through wasteful management, and protect of Cheney's interests then we need to do a better job in this info-war.

It looks like they are puting their cards on the table, not their whole hand, but enough to instill fear, abuse citizens and defile the constituion. Not to mention, one effect of this will go against them, they did this during R.P>'s exposure. In effect it may strenghten his stand.
The bags of parasites running this gov. will go the limit, and our cowardly or sold out congress will not duscuss this issue, you can be sure. They are gutless worms sucking on the elite straw.
Ya know something i learned long ago, fear is the first human reaction, then anger begins and in turn rage results.
Instilling fear into the masses is age old, however that same fear once reversed becomes their werst nightmare.
