On June 27, 2009, Will Bratton posted the videos below on the Vimeo website. It shows a flatbed trailer ferrying a couple black SUV Suburbans with Defense logos on them (described as Fifth Army, HHC CSRD). The video was shot on I-35 between San Marcos and Austin, Texas. “I did a tour in Iraq, 05-06, and I don’t remember any civilian models this heavily equipped being there,” writes Bratton.
The transport of these heavily equipped vehicles occurred a month before NLE 09, the FEMA exercise that kicks off this week. Is it possible these vehicles are related to the exercise aimed at confronting “domestic terrorists,” defined by the DHS as “rightwing extremists”?
