SAT: Jade Helm supposition unfounded
from Burleson Star
Rising social media concerns related to Operation Jade Helm 15, a summer Army special forces training exercise across Texas and six southwestern states, are unfounded, Sheriff Bob Alford was told in an email from the Sheriffs' Association of Texas.
Social media pages have exploded with "conspiracy theories," the email read, with some asserting the exercise to be "martial law" and a "takeover of Texas." Those postings have been shared on many local residents' personal pages. Others wondered why a map, which the Washington Post verified to have been designed by the U.S. Army, had red "hostile" states and blue "permissive" states.
Operation Jade Helm 15 is planned for July 15 to September 15.
