Rex 84 - FEMA's post Katrina fuck up was dry run for US nationwide concentration camps ?

Global Research has a story (20th August) that FEMA is set to act to organise and impose martial law under a plan called Rex 84 (readiness Exercise - geddit ?) which stems from the days of Iran contra.

It seems it was reported in the Iran Contra hearings in 1987, and subsequently reported (it appears only by them) by the Miami Herald on July 5, 1987:as a plan to set up camps / prisons.

"These camps are to be operated by FEMA should martial law need to be implemented in the United States and all it would take is a presidential signature on a proclamation and the attorney general's signature on a warrant to which a list of names is attached."

Hurricane Katrina is said to have provided FEMA with a chance to “dry run” its unconstitutional powers in New Orleans, rounding up "refugees" ( “evacuees”) and "relocating" them in various camps. "Some evacuees are being treated as ‘internees’ by FEMA," writes former NSC employee Wayne Madsen:

“Reports continue to come into Wayne Madsen Report that evacuees from New Orleans and Acadiana [the traditional twenty-two parish Cajun homeland] who have been scattered across the United States are being treated as ‘internees’ and not dislocated American citizens from a catastrophe"

Sharp eyed readers of the NYT yesterday will have seen a map and read an article across 2 pages on page A 20 / 21 "Hurricanes Escape Routes : One was forced, another chosen"

NOLA's population pre Katrina was approx 480,000 it is now put at 200 - 250,000. suggesting a diaspora of at least 200,000. A map (see above) by Matthew Ericsoon /NYT shows the details as known.This information was available from the US Post Office of people who had changed their forwarding address from the parishes that were damaged

They Moved to
New address in NOLA 76,000
Elsewhere in Southern Louisiana 52,000
Houston 35,000
Dalls Forth Worth / Austin / San Antinio 24,000
Atlanta 12,000
Washington /Chicago/ South California 4,500
Memphis 3,000
Florida 1,500
The rest were spread across many cities in hundreds and the odd thousands.

If this was a dry run for FEMA of Rex 84 it looks a strange distribution.. especially as the diaspora looks to be fairly fixed with the folks being moved, rapidly putting down roots, having lost and left everything behind they coudn't carry. Maybe it was just a clever plan to send more home help to the booming cities of Texas and Atlanta ( grown 400% in 20 years).... or a neat trick to clog their school systems and healthcare provision with NOLA's black urban poor ?

Sounds just like the fuck up you can expect from Brownie, (you're doin' a great job) , Chertoff (his mom was El Al's first air stewardess) and FEMA - so much for the threat of prison camps across America.

Lord Patel doubts whether FEMA could organise a Boy Scout Camp.

What is of more concern is the The House-passed version of the National Defense Authorization Act (H.R. 5122) which would authorize the President to take control of the Guard in case of "a serious natural or manmade disaster, accident, or catastrophe that occurs in the United States, its territories and possessions, or Puerto Rico." This provision was drafted without consultation or input from governors (typical of the WH gangstas) and represents an unprecedented shift in authority from governors as Commanders and Chief of the Guard to the Federal government and was protested by every state Governor in a letter to Congressional leaders on August 6th 2006.
