An internment camp is a large detention center created for political opponents, enemy aliens, people with mental illness, specific ethnic or religious groups, civilians of a critical war-zone, or other groups of people, usually during a war. The term is used for facilities where inmates are selected according to some specific criteria, rather than individuals who are incarcerated after due process of law fairly applied by a judiciary.

Alabama Co. May Call In Troops To Perform Law Enforcement Duties

Why Are Troops Stationed Inside The U.S.?

Unbeknownst to most Americans, as of October 1st, troops from the 3rd Infantry Division’s 1st Brigade Combat Team who have spent 35 of the last 60 months in Iraq, have been stationed inside the United States. According to the Army Times the troops “…may be called upon to help with civil unrest and crowd control or to deal with potentially horrific scenarios such as massive poisoning and chaos in response to a chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear or high-yield explosive, or CBRNE, attack”.

Stationing troops in the U.S. defies the Posse Comitatus Act, a federal law erected in 1878 which limits the powers of the federal government to use the military for law enforcement.

An additional concern is the mental health of soldiers who have spent 35 months in Iraq. According to an Army survey one of eight soldiers returning home suffers from PTSDPost Traumatic Stress Disorder. A passage in the article on the study states:“Once called shell shock or combat fatigue, post-traumatic stress disorder can develop after witnessing or experiencing a traumatic event. Symptoms include flashbacks, nightmares, feelings of detachment, irritability, trouble concentrating and sleeplessness.”.

According to this news video, by 2011 there will be 20,000 more troops stationed in the U.S. An excerpt from the video states :According to Pentagon officials, these men and women will be stationed inside of the U.S. Thousands of additional uniformed men and women said to be trained by 2011. They’ll serve as a response to a possible mass terror attack or civil unrest following an economic collapse. To learn more, watch this video.
