    United States Navy SEALs planned war games in the state of Washington for mid-January, where they would encroach upon residential areas, state parks, national parks, etc, without the consent of the public. The war games treat citizens as pawns because SEALs were trained to react to citizens as potential terrorists.

    One of the most alarming aspects of the war games, which were reported on by Truthout journalist Dahr Jamail, is how it normalizes the idea that U.S. citizens can be enemies. The war games suggest a future where many more military exercises run roughshod over public spaces and soldiers simulate how citizens could pose a danger to them.

    Now, the weekly podcast, “Unauthorized Disclosure,” returns for a third season. Our guest this week is Jamail, who talks about documents he obtained from a source within the Navy. He describes how the Navy circumvented the process so the public would not be able to object to plans. It excluded clandestine trainings from regulations requiring environmental impact statements. “Peace parks” in Washington would be violated by the military. Jamail also talks about some of his other extensive reporting on climate disruption, including the melting of the Arctic.

    In the discussion portion, hosts Kevin Gosztola and Rania Khalek recap the past few weeks of 2016 and talk about Guantanamo, Obama’s State of the Union speech, and U.S. government raids and deportations against refugees from Central America.

    Below is a partial transcript of the interview with Dahr Jamail.

    GOSZTOLA: Let’s get into it. Basically what you describe are these clandestine military exercises that the Navy SEALs are going to run in the Puget Sound and coastal areas of Washington state. So, get into what you uncovered here.

    JAMAIL: Basically, what I found through a source—actually within the Navy—I came across a couple of the Navy’s own documents, and these were documents that they’re not classified but the Navy had effectively hidden them from public accessibility by calling them something else. They basically made up their own designation for these documents in such a way as to make it to where they would not be available. If someone wanted to file a Freedom of Information Act request to try to get this kind of information, they basically made it so these documents would not come up in those searches but that they would not be breaking the law by hiding them in the way that they did.

    And so, the source that I had was able to provide these documents to me, which essentially outlined an ongoing Navy SEALs training regime that was slated to start right now literally—yesterday to be specific, January 14—and be ongoing for the next two years, where they would essentially have access to basically the entirety coastline of Washington state, including most of the Puget Sound area, the coast going out the Strait of Juan de Fuca, the west coast that is right there on the Pacific Ocean.

    They would have access to coastlines, state parks, private areas, to where Navy SEALs would be launched onto the beach areas carrying “simulated weapons” in areas that include 68 beach and state park areas in everywhere that I just mentioned, and they would be able to access the beach areas, residential areas, private lands, state parks, and go anytime, day or night, for exercises starting yesterday for the next two years without any public notification whatsoever. They hadn’t any of the relevant state, federal, or local government officials—So, things like police departments, things like U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service, etc. Nobody had been notified. Even the governor’s office in Washington state had not been notified.

    Needless to say, when we published these documents on Monday, it has basically created outrage across the better part of Washington state. And it has fortunately forced most of the local media outlets, including a lot of the bigger TV and newspaper outlets in Seattle and the surrounding area, to start covering the story. So, people are really, really upset about this and rightly so.

    KHALEK: So many aspects of this story are really stunning, but one thing in particular was the fact that this wasn’t even cleared with the federal government agencies, the federal government land that would be used for this. It violated all kinds of federal laws and state laws. It’s like nobody has any control over what Navy SEALs can train and do. The federal government doesn’t have control. That’s so bizarre to me.

    JAMAIL: That’s exactly right. One example is the Washington State Historic Preservation Officer. This person on the state level wasn’t even consulted. The Navy used a really slimy method of excluding contact with these people that by law, by federal law, they were supposed to be in contact with to consult with, to do environmental impact statements, and then have public notifications and public comment periods, etc. The Navy bypassed doing any of this, and one of the ways, one of the chief means they used of doing it was they used an exemption process called a categorical exclusion. CATEX is their acronym.

    They used it as a way to sidestep federal regulations that could have actually been preventative of them doing these type of Navy SEAL war gaming along the coast of Washington. And so, by using these categorical exclusions, they basically use this as a way to not have to do an environmental assessment or an environmental impact statement, which would be required on these types of exercises. I have emails that documented this, where the Navy literally not just tried to not do these environmental impact statements and the things they are regulated by federal law to do but literally actively sought this way to bypass regulations by using CATEXes and other things like this.

    It’s really, really troubling. Not only are they just disregarding the federal law. They basically are actively finding ways to completely subvert it, and then that would allow them to do what they were poised to do, which is conduct what they call realistic military trainings where—And this is why I say in the title of the piece the Navy uses U.S. citizens as pawns in domestic war games.

    I mean that quite literally because by the Navy’s own documents that we published—and they’re online right now for folks to check out—they talk about using U.S. citizens as a way of training their soldiers to say, hey, these could be terrorists. We don’t know the people you might run into during these war game exercises. So, they’re literally using U.S. citizens as pawns to train their soldiers how to react in certain ways.

    They’re not carrying weapons with live ammunition in them, but nevertheless, this is a very, very disconcerting step, where they are actively using U.S. citizens in their war games without our consent, without even our knowledge, and certainly without any advanced notification of what they are going to be doing. And then this sets up a situation, where literally you will have Navy SEALs swimming in teams through marinas where people are living on boats. They’re not going to know what’s happening. They’re not going to know who these people are.

    You’re going to have Navy SEALs going through residential neighborhoods potentially in the middle of the night with simulated weapons, going through state park and hiking trails at night during the day with simulated weapons, some time even carrying out active war gaming exercises. Needless to say, you don’t have to use a lot of imagination to see the potential for disaster, for someone being shot, for someone else getting afraid and pulling a gun on these people, since we live in such a heavily weaponized country that the potential for accidents is very high—not even to speak of just basic civil rights and civil liberties that are going to be infringed upon by these exercises.

    KHALEK: There’s two point theres. First, when we say war games, war games sounds almost like something fun. But these are Navy SEALs that typically operate in kill teams basically. That’s what they do when they go abroad so I imagine that’s the kind of training being conducted as well. Then, you mentioned they are using the U.S. population as pawns. At some point, could these kinds of exercises being used against U.S. citizens, like domestically on U.S. soil if that’s where they are practicing it? These parts of the west coast do not exactly look like and operate like parts of the world where the U.S. military is conducting operations like this.

    JAMAIL: Yeah, those are both two really good points. Let me just start by using the Navy’s own exact language for their plans because that’s why, I think, one reason why this story is so explosive is it’s extremely alarming and disconcerting information. And it’s not being made up. I am quoting directly from the Navy itself, and the Navy was, of course, forced to confirm that, yes, these indeed are our documents.

    Their plans include what they call special reconnaissance teams conducting patrols, which are then authorized to go on simulated “direct action missions.” Their definition of a “direct action mission” is “short duration strikes and other small-scale offensive actions conducted as a special operation in hostile, denied, or politically sensitive environments and which employ specialized military capabilities to seize, destroy, capture, exploit, recover, or damage designated targets.”

    That’s their own lingo. Then, I include a lot of different links that discuss, you know, hey, this is the domestic military expansionism going on across the entire country. Operation Jade Helm from last year was one example of this. This is basically a mini version of Operation Jade Helm. I say mini. It involves the entire coastline of Washington state but compared to Jade Helm that is still small. And this is happening all over, and it does come on the back of several instances of extremely abusive unlawful behavior by naval SEALs overseas—detainee killings and abuse—documented in even mainstream sources, like the New York Times. So, it is very disconcerting.

    To the second question you pose, why is this training happening and what are the future implications? Again, I like to cite the military’s own documents because if I just say this, someone might say, well, he’s sounding a bit like a conspiracy theorist. According to the Quadrennial Defense Review report from the Pentagon, these types of trainings are for two purposes. One, it is to prepare for future wars against countries that would have coastlines like this. I think it’s, again, quoting that document, we talk about China. We talk about Russia. We look at future resource wars.

    Secondly, again, according to the quadrennial defense review report, we look at the military preparing for two potentialities: one, domestic unrest caused by climate change exacerbated situations—so, unrest due to lack of food and water in big urban environments or even on the outskirts of those environments. Two, economic unrest—I think they’re tied together, but the quadrennial defense review report addresses them as two separate things.

    You know, domestic unrest caused by upheaval from lack of food and water availability climate change-related or another giant economic crash, like say post-2008 economic crash but even worse, where again you would have riots happening in urban centers or sometimes in outlying areas if there’s not enough money and the economy basically hits a point of criticality, where people literally can’t find enough food and water. The military is actively preparing for both of those two potentialities, and that’s fact. That’s according to the Pentagon’s own words.

    GOSZTOLA: I want to emphasize that some of these operations would be happening in peace parks in Washington, and maybe you could spend some time talking about how these places have been designated as such by citizens in Washington.

    JAMAIL: That’s right. It’s actually nearby the town where I live in Port Townsend, Washington. It’s on the northeast tip of the Olympic peninsula. There is a park there that is well known around the area as a peace park because it’s essentially an old military base that was there when there were gun emplacements there. Back in the turn of the century, there was actually a fort there, where the military was prepared in case there was some sort of a naval invasion coming in the strait. But there’s a place, it’s now called Fort Worden State Park. And it’s essentially been turned away.

    It’s not even thought of by locals as a military base or a former military base. It’s essentially been turned into an area for art, where there’s artist residencies there. There’s a big art entity, Centrum, that hosts regular artist workshops, music fests, all through the summer. Also, on top of the area nearby the area that overlooks the strait—it’s a very beautiful area—there’s a place called Memory’s Vault, which is a place where people can go and sit in and contemplate. That area, particularly, is called a peace park. If you look at the Navy’s own documents, they have that whole area mapped out. You can pull up a specific slide and look. It shows exactly where they intend to land on the beaches and then the areas they would go up in to Fort Worden State Park and conduct paintball war gaming exercises against each other.

    GOSZTOLA: In isolation, it’s alarming. To what extent is this an expansion? You said this is expansionism, but how would you contextualize this? Because they’ve done military exercises in parts of the country. It’s probably been happening for decades now at this point. Is what’s alarming that they’re specifically singling out people as pawns and part of the exercise?

    JAMAIL: That is a very good point because that is a very recent shift, and to my eyes, probably the most disconcerting thing. The military’s always carried out large exercises around the country off the coast, even on land. They have millions and millions of acres of federal land that is designated specifically and only for military exercise training. In all fifty states, you can find land like this. That is not new.

    What is new is this encroachment onto state parks, national parks, and now, more recently, as we saw in Jade Helm and as we’re seeing now in Pacific Northwest, their intentional use of going into private residential areas and literally having training exercises specifically setup to go do that with the expectations that they will run into citizens and then train their soldiers how to prepare for that; to treat these citizens as potential enemy combatants, as potential terrorists, as potential troublemakers, etc.

    And so, it’s not necessarily they’re going to go out and start detaining people and drag them into their war games. But literally they are starting to train their soldiers to prepare for that as a possibility in the future. You might go into a residential neighborhood on the outskirts of this tiny little town in the Pacific Northwest called Port Townsend, which is basically known as an art town, and run into someone on their urban organic farm. You might say, hey, this could be a potential terrorist so how are we going to behave? So, bringing people into their exercises as pawns.

    That is a new thing. I’ve not run across this so far except in the last year. And Jade Helm is really the first most egregious example, and then now this one, where literally it is in their own documentation that we want to bring citizens into these war games so we can start mentally preparing our soldiers for this eventuality in the future.

        Dahr Jamail is an opportunist and spreader of rumor and false innuendo. I know this grifter personally, from his first attempts at notoriety in “reporting” on Iraq.

        I witnessed a community presentation in Port Townsend 10 years go where he gave a talk and left unsaid that he was using stock photos, sprinkled liberally throughout his talk. He claimed white phosphorus burns in the photos were “Chemical warfare”, laughable to anyone who has served (it’s explosive ordinance that burns at high heat). He scammed donations, then headed back to … Amman, Jordan … where he proceeded to report on the War in Iraq.

        Problem was, Amman is closer to EVERY POINT IN ISRAEL than ANY point in Iraq. This putz never entered Iraq while “reporting” on events there. Jamail is a self-taught grifter with an agenda, who uses a keyboard to run his con.

        This was my first stop at the MintPress site. By publishing this reprobate’s words, you’ve guaranteed it’s my last as well. Sad state of internet “journalism” here.

Oh, I see now…..the US “forces” are OK with showing a show of force on the American people, but not OK with saving members of other US forces threatened by foreign “forces”.

            What ever that trite and superficial remark means. I spent 6 years in the military and I certainly don’t fear them. My point is that if someone is going to go around carrying weapons in a potential threatening manner they had better be clearly identified in a manner that indicates that the aren’t a threat, or those of us who carry weapons may respond accordingly.

            Before I make fun of your stupid comment, let me say as a vet I have the greatest respect and admiration for our Navy Seals. Situation: Its night I see someone suspicious in my yard and I go out to investigate, the person is unidentified and I feel threatened. Person (unknown to me is a Navy Seal) is armed with a weapon without ammunition, a knife, his lethal training and is approximately 20 yards from me; I (have owned guns for 50 years and having spent 6 years in the military where I qualified as an “expert marksman” with each and every weapon that I carried) am armed with an 8 shot 12-guage Mossberg 500 Persuader alternately loaded with military grade 00 buck shot and Brenneke Black Magic slugs (I am specific because that is how my shotgun is currently configured) and I see him & feel the need to protect myself. The outcome: as they say “don’t bring a knife to a gunfight”. Give that scenario to a Seal, Ranger, Delta Force Operator, etc. and ask them what is the likely hood they would prevail.

            • tom56071

              you are stupid rambo the training you received today is out dated tomorrow as things in the military change every day ,like i said you will last about 5 seconds ,they can shoot you in your living room pitch dark with a 50 cal blocks away where your duck hunting gun is only good for a couple of yards and now 50 cals are out dated

        IF you are not honoring your Oath, then, you need to tear off and remove that U.S. Flag patch from your uniform, and, wear the united nations or new world order patch.

        Your loyalties reside with the united nations and new world order, NOT with the United States of America, the American People, the Oath you swore, the Constitution, Bill of Rights, Declaration of Independence, Freedoms, Liberties, and Justices for ALL!!!

        How do you sleep at night?! How can you even stand to look at yourself in the mirror, IF you have and are betraying your Oath, guilty of TREASON!!!

        There was once a day when Militia groups were very little more then a bunch of yahoo’s shooting guns and running around the backwoods country. Because of the policies and agenda of this current President and the one before him. That has changed dramatically. Militia groups now have thousands of ex-military and SPEC-OP in their ranks. Civilian Militia counter intelligence in the USA is VERY good. Any special operations group who
        would engage US citizens as military targets would, and let me say this clearly “PERHAPS, on some level
        unknown to any but them, be placing their own family members in harms way”… US Colleges and educational
        institutions have De-educated our civilian population concerning knowledge of our basic founding principals.

        ******** Those being found in the Declaration of Independence itself********
        It Reads…….
        …….”We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.–That
        to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, –That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of
        the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and
        Happiness.”…….// …..”But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security”……
        ***a clear statement if there ever was one*******

        It should be noted and taken extremely serious that It is not only prudent, BUT THE DUTY of any and every American to “THROW OFF” any Government or military entity which proves dangerous to the people, who hold the ultimate decision concerning their leaders and trusted officials. This is a declarative statement of fact in our Constitutional foundations as a Nation. When and IF our own government declares war against us… It is our God given duty (not idea, or thought….. DUTY!)… to wage war against it and CAST IT OFF!!…… The Citizens of the USA have already won their freedom from Tyranny and Despotism… In the end, it is up to them/us to KEEP that independence.
        Hence the ENORMOUS importance of the “Second Amendment” and why our forefathers placed it so high (the 2nd of many amendments) in our Constitution. And why ALL REAL Americans should shutter at the very
        mention of curtailing our Constitutional right to bear arms. If you trust a government with your freedom… YOU WILL eventually lose it.

        I don’t believe Navy SEALs would turn against citizens of their country. A certain percentage of the Army, Navy and Air Force personnel will but the Marines and special forces in all branches will largely be on our side when the time comes.

          they aren’t training for your so called “new world order takeover” you delusional nuts.

        • TeeJae

          Why not? Because it makes you feel better to think they would protect you? Sounds more like wishful thinking. And what makes the Marines and Special Ops forces so “special?”

          • ExtremeRC

            I know a couple former Seals, and they confirmed that the Seals allegiance is to the US Constitution, and not necessarily military leaders or the president. It’s about law and order.

            • TeeJae

              Every service member (which includes military leaders AND the Commander-in-Chief) does “solemnly swear to support and defend the Constitution.” So, if a leader gives an unlawful order, subordinates have a duty NOT to follow it.

              What’s interesting though, is your higher regard for *certain* military branches and units over others. Why do you have less confidence in the Army, Navy and Air Force?

        The U.S. Military should never incorporate the civilian public involuntarily into their training. There was a federal law passed that prohibited such military encroachment, but currently there are thousands of paramilitary troops under the command of the CIA, DIA, NSA, and all of the other sub-agencies within agencies with their own hit teams. These covert teams of thugs can create their own “terrorist” events to cause public panic and fear. That is how the federal government justifies its fascist actions. It’s a terrible things when a constitutional republic becomes tyrannical and fascist and most of the electorate can’t tell the difference.

        • tom56071

          the government has their people in the ranchers protests ,hells angles ,bandetos and all the anti government groups

          • nrnowlin

            The federal government is comprised of numerous intelligence agencies, the CIA, DEA, NSA, DIA, DHS, FEMA, and the FBI that have secretly been compartmentalized, over the decades, into secret sub-agencies that have connected themselves to the many federal regulatory agencies. The NSA alone has over 20,000 covert assets who they use to infiltrate civilian and monitor groups. Why do you think that the federal government has purchased billions of rounds of 9 mm and 8.62 mm ammunition? Every federal agency, IRS, EPA, . . ., have paramilitary units, comprising over 75,000 armed men and women (a federal army). These paramilitary units will eventually be used as attack units when martial law is declared. The U.S. federal government is currently more fascist than Hitler’s Gestapo, and more dangerous. Of course the ranchers’ protest has infiltrated by pragmatic covert operatives of the federal government.

        I’m guessing that a Navy Seal isn’t a top graduate capable of reading the Constitution or they wouldn’t be a Navy Seal.

        • Ranger_Ric

          What a stupid, apparently uneducated thing to say.

          SEALs graduate at the top of their class academically long before they ever join the service or are accepted into SEAL team training. Do you realize they have far more medical training than any paramedic on the planet? Do you realize their math skills, IQ and civilian academic achievements are part of the criteria to just be accepted into training?

          Dude, these guys care enough about their country and the constitution that governs it to put themselves into insanely difficult and dangerous situations at a moments notice to defend it. Your assumption is insulting.

          I am sure there are a few rotten apples, there are in any profession but the vast, vast majority of these guys will be on the right side of this when the time comes and you would be damn lucky to have one of them anywhere near you when the shtf.

          As far as that goes, so will your average Marine and the Marines will take anyone with a GED, you don’t have to be an Einstein. Most of those guys probably can’t recite the constitution from memory but they know right from wrong, good from bad and they care about their fellow citizens.

          You want something to worry about, look at the merc force the fed gov has built using every law enforcement and non-law enforcement agency in the country.

        The Navy Seals will train, but I don’t believe for a moment that they would EVER turn on the American public. I know ex-Seals, and they have sworn their allegiance to the US Constitution, not to specific leaders.

        • TeeJae

          Does the Constitution issue their orders? If they don’t follow their leaders’ orders, whose orders do they follow?

          • ExtremeRC

            I’m speaking in the event of a mass order against American citizens. In an unlikely scenario like that, I would expect most of the military to disobey orders and America would be in a second civil war.

                    My crystal ball is non-functional at the moment. Use your imagination.

                    You may be unaware, but one of the main purposes of the 2nd Amendment is to protect citizens from government tyranny. To keep and bear arms includes not muskets, but 21st century weapons, including semi-automatics. As we have seen in Afghanistan, guerrilla tactics are very effective, and there are 50 million armed, lawful Americans who value the US Constitution and Bill of Rights and will never let it be abandoned or trashed.

                    Law and order is paramount, which is why the founding fathers placed checks and balances to prevent abuse. And one of these checks is a lawfully armed citizenry. Beware the government that seeks to disarm it’s citizens.

              Here’s the thing, nothing you said really answered any of my questions.

Seattle really fought against it, and for all their efforts the Senate gave them all the cost over-runs. The cost over-runs weren’t to exceed 200 Million, and their already 2 years behind schedule and at 1 Billion in cost-overruns. The bad thing for the Navy is they may have overlooked WA is a ”Stand your ground state”. The SEAL’s fake guns won’t help them when they trespass, and Mr. Property Owner has a real gun.

Look how easily Americans are fooled into turning on each other when the “other” is dehumanized – blacks, Muslims, Mexicans, Natives, gays, millennials, the elderly, the poor, etc. Service members are no different. In fact, they’re worse. I speak from experience.

            Jamail’s piece on Truthout is abundantly referenced.

      • Billy Bob

        Could this training be for the eventual Islam takeover of the USA?

        • CorruptionInColumbia

          To protect and run interference for the muzzies as the police in Europe have been doing?

      • So this guy is more concerned with the environmental damage the Navy Squeals would do to a city park than the idea of the military being used against American citizens?

        • TeeJae

          No, read it again.

      • Goose

        Wouldn’t be smart to run games in my neck of the woods, I hear gunfire daily. Glad I have a concrete home.

      • Eddie Wienbauer

        So what happens,when you shot a seal for trespassing in your yard??

        • Jason Smith

          They shoot back.

          • Bazooka Joe

            And they are better shots….

            • Jim

              Don’t Bet Your Life On That.

          • lesteram .

            They are not supposed to have live ammo, but …..

        • tom56071

          you really can’t shoot any one in your yard unless your life is in danger no different than the streets

          • Eddie Wienbauer

            Well,if you see a armed person wearing ski mask in your backyard,I would say I would feel my life is in danger.But I see your point

            • tom56071

              ithink in texas you can shoot people in your yard but don’t quote me on that .if i see someone dressed like that with a rifle and a package id shoot them could be a bomb ,it’s better to be tried by 12 than buried by 6

              • Eddie Wienbauer

                fair enough.He also could be from the IRS=big reason to shot him..Environmental hazard to your backyard +(most importantly) You feared he was there to rob you of your life savings. 😉

              • Eddie Wienbauer

                Seem my answer to you,just disappeared.
                Well you could always claim you thought the dude was from the IRS and your feared for your lifesavings
                And the value of your property. Once he’d set foot on it,it would be ruined,nothing would grow there 😉

        • porpoiseboy

          you gut him for his blubber and sell it to the eskimo peoples.

      • Cameron Kruger

        Aren’t they supposed to be in white suits and be wearing helmets with blacked-out visors? Welcome to America’s first annual hunger games!

      • Disgusting – using civilians as part of war games. This should be stopped.

        • Bill the Cat

          Sad but true, the next war COULD be on our own soil. Now that Obama has let the enemy through the gates it’s just a matter of when, not if. Glad to see the military thinking about it.

          • Jason Smith

            Double edged sword….

            Posse Comitatus

            • Harry Nads

              Keep your weapons cleaned and loaded–we may have company soon==Obama’s buddies.
              They are in every state…waiting

              • Bazooka Joe

                Coming to your house first…

          • Bazooka Joe

            Obama excuses are beyond old… you need a new schtick.

        • Tex

          Reese, tell me you honestly believe this has never happened before . . . in America. Wow, you drank their koolaid in school lunches, didn’t you. Wake up, Reese, Santa was here!

          • Tex, as Veteran I know exactly what has transpired in the past – and i know this rises to a new level.

            • porpoiseboy

              but you do not know if it is true

              • William Zabel

                Yes I do.

        • Bazooka Joe

          Well considering how a portion of Americans are turning into nut-jobs, I cant blame them for this type of training….
