Alex Jones Issues High Alert

Citing the Daily Times Herald (Carroll, Iowa):

Guardsman to conduct urban training at Arcadia in April

From the article:
The primary phase will be done Saturday, April 4, when convoys will be deployed from Carroll to Arcadia. Pictures of the arms dealer will be shown in Arcadia, and soldiers will go door to door asking if residents have seen the suspect.

Soldiers will knock only at households that have agreed to participate in the drill, Kots noted.
[Ed. note: Alex Jones will be in Carroll/Arcadia for these drills. From his experience with other urban training drills, households are NOT asked if they want to participate.]

"Once credible intelligence has been gathered," said Kots, "portions of the town will be road-blocked and more in-depth searches of homes and vehicles will be conducted in accordance with the residents' wishes.
[Emphasis mine. Road blocks and in-depth searches. How does Arcadia IA help the military prep for AfPak, Iran, etc? The answer is: IT DOESN'T.]

"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."
[Ed. note: Who's the HIM in that sentence? The soldier?]

During this phase of the operation, troops will interact with residents and media while implementing crowd-control measures and possibly treating and evacuating injured persons.
[From previous experience they anticipate injuries?]

The unit will use a Blackhawk helicopter for overhead command and control, and to simulate medevacs.
[The infamous black helicopters.]

The drill will culminate in the apprehension of the suspected arms dealer.
[Everyone loves a happy ending.]
