Britain doesn’t need FEMA camps what’s happening is a lot worse and people are blind to it…

The fate of Rex 84 has never been definitively explained. Nor has the plan’s development been thoroughly explored. During the Iran-Contra hearings in the summer of 1987, Rep. Jack Brooks (D-Tex.) attempted to raise the issue during an open session of the committee during the appearance of Oliver North.

Brooks: “Col. North, in your work at the NSC, were you not assigned, at one time, to work on plans for the continuity of government in the event of a major disaster?”

Sen. Daniel Inouye (Co-chair): “I believe that question touches upon a highly sensitive and classified area so may I request that you not touch upon that.”

Brooks: “I was particularly concerned, Mr. Chairman, because I read in the Miami papers and several others that there had been a plan developed, by that same agency, a contingency plan in the event of an emergency that would suspend the American Constitution. And I was deeply concerned about it and wondered if that was the area in which [North] had worked. I believe that it was, and I wanted to get his confirmation.”

Inouye: “May I most respectfully request that that matter not be touched upon at this stage. If we wish to get into this, I’m certain arrangements can be made for an executive session.”

That was the beginning and the end of any Congressional discussion of the plan. Apparently, there was no follow-up executive session in which committee members tried to learn just how extensive and well-developed was this plan to surveil and imprison large numbers of citizens and refugees who might object to the United States invading Nicaragua or becoming embroiled in armed hostilities in other parts of the world. But, as researcher Diana Reynolds and others have noted, “It ) is clear that the FEMA contingency plans to round up political dissenters was related to the FBI’s investigation of political dissidents.” [1991] Break-ins, Death Threats and the FBI the covert war against the Central America movement by Ross Gelbspan
