FEMA Sends Katrina Survivors to American Gulag

The de facto federal occupation of New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina will give impetus to the Bush-Cheney Regime's prime ambition to overturn posse comitatus, writes independent news analyst Al Martin. Posse comitatus, of course, is a law from the Civil War era which prohibits using federal troops against US citizens and is the primary obstacle to the complete federal militarization of law enforcement in America.

In his column "FEMA Sends Katrina Survivors to American Gulag; Municipal Bond Holders at Risk," Al Martin writes that "in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, what has become apparent in New Orleans is the inability of the local, county and city law enforcement to restore the rule of law."

"This situation has necessitated placing federal troops in a de facto occupation of the city," Martin continues. "This in turn will give ammunition to Tom DeLay in the House and Orrin Hatch in the Senate to push for the overturning of posse comitatus."

Martin also reminds his readers that this is what former KGB General Yevgeni Primakov, allegedly hired by the Department of Homeland Security as a "consultant," said about the first leg in the establishment of an "American gulag.

"Taking these ‘useless eaters’ and seditious BOVOBs (Burned Out Victims of Bushonomics) and scattering them across the country in little, out-of-the-way facilities," writes Martin referring to the FEMA policy of taking New Orleans hurricane survivors and transferring them around the country to heavily guarded detainment facilities.

"The mass movement of Black people like this has never been seen," Martin continues. "There’s never been mass resettlement before, but that’s what’s effectively happening."

"We’re taking BOVOBs, getting them out of the media limelight, and quietly transferring them to continuing federal control, so that they’re all going to facilities, controlled by FEMA or some other federal agency. They are de facto detainees since they are not allowed to leave the facility for at least five months."
