FEMA: National Level Exercise 2009 With Foreign Troops

Well isn’t this a fine howdy-doo?  Is it even legal for foreign troops to be on American soil?  My spousal unit, (former military), says, “Nope“.

Maybe one of the Monster’s readers can dust off the regs that say this is completely unconstitutional.  As always, look for the bold emphasis.

Can we impeach Obama yet?

From the FEMA Site:

National Level Exercise 2009 (NLE 09)

National Level Exercise 2009 (NLE 09) is scheduled for July 27 through July 31, 2009. NLE 09 will be the first major exercise conducted by the United States government that will focus exclusively on terrorism prevention and protection, as opposed to incident response and recovery.

NLE 09 is designated as a Tier I National Level Exercise. Tier I exercises (formerly known as the Top Officials exercise series or TOPOFF) are conducted annually in accordance with the National Exercise Program (NEP), which serves as the nation’s overarching exercise program for planning, organizing, conducting and evaluating national level exercises. The NEP was established to provide the U.S. government, at all levels, exercise opportunities to prepare for catastrophic crises ranging from terrorism to natural disasters.

NLE 09 is a White House directed, Congressionally- mandated exercise that includes the participation of all appropriate federal department and agency senior officials, their deputies, staff and key operational elements.  In addition, broad regional participation of state, tribal, local, and private sector is anticipated.  This year the United States welcomes the participation of Australia, Canada, Mexico and the United Kingdom in NLE 09.


NLE 09 will focus on intelligence and information sharing among intelligence and law enforcement communities, and between international, federal, regional, state, tribal, local and private sector participants.

The NLE 09 scenario will begin in the aftermath of a notional terrorist event outside of the United States, and exercise play will center on preventing subsequent efforts by the terrorists to enter the United States and carry out additional attacks. This scenario enables participating senior officials to focus on issues related to preventing terrorist events domestically and protecting U.S. critical infrastructure.

NLE 09 will allow terrorism prevention efforts to proceed to a logical end (successful or not), with no requirement for response or recovery activities.

NLE 09 will be an operations-based exercise to include: activities taking place at command posts, emergency operation centers, intelligence centers and potential field locations to include federal headquarters facilities in the Washington D.C. area, and in federal, regional, state, tribal, local and private sector facilities in FEMA Region VI, which includes the states of Arkansas, Louisiana, New Mexico, Oklahoma and Texas.


Through a comprehensive evaluation process, the exercise will assess prevention and protection capabilities both nationally and regionally. Although NLE 09 is still in the planning stages, the exercise is currently designed to validate the following capabilities:

  • Intelligence/Information Sharing and Dissemination
  • Counter-Terrorism Investigation and Law Enforcement
  • Air, Border and Maritime Security
  • Critical Infrastructure Protection
  • Public and Private Sector Alert/Notification and Security Advisories
  • International Coordination


Exercises such as NLE 09 are an important component of national preparedness, helping to build an integrated federal, state, tribal, local and private sector capability to prevent terrorist attacks, and rapidly and effectively respond to, and recover from, any terrorist attack or major disaster that occurs.

The full-scale exercise offers agencies and jurisdictions a way to test their plans and skills in a real-time, realistic environment and to gain the in-depth knowledge that only experience can provide. Participants will exercise prevention and information sharing functions that are critical to preventing terrorist attacks. Lessons learned from the exercise will provide valuable insights to guide future planning for securing the nation against terrorist attacks, disasters, and other emergencies.

FEMA leads and supports the nation in a risk-based, comprehensive emergency management system of preparedness, protection, response, recovery, and mitigation, to reduce the loss of life and property and protect the nation from all hazards including natural disasters, acts of terrorism and other man-made disasters.

  • “Today Americans would be outraged if U.N. troops entered Los Angeles to restore order; tomorrow they will be grateful! This is especially true if they were told there was an outside threat from beyond, whether real or promulgated, that threatened our very existence. It is then that all peoples of the world will plead with world leaders to deliver them from this evil. The one thing every man fears is the unknown. When presented with this scenario, individual rights will be willingly relinquished for the guarantee of their well being granted to them by their world government.”

    Henry Kissinger at the Bilderberger meeting in Evian, France, May 21, 1991.


    God bless America!

  • I am going to play the Devil’s advocate here….I don’t see anything in the announcement to suggest that the other countries involved will have troops on the ground. I will call that phone number later today and ask some questions. The first one will examine why the other countries are involved and if they will have troops on the ground!

  • Kissingers words are chilling. I am hopefully that in 2009 more people are aware that the evil they need to be delivered from are the world leaders.

    I know in 1991 I would of never thought that.

    The Bilderbergers and ilk have been outed so while they are a force to be dealt with they are no longer stealth.

    • How does one keep up with the bombardment of crap coming out of DC and the rest of the world? I saw that story about the Chinese banker and just could not keep up. ;(

  • California Patriot -

    Where is OUR military? Oh, let me think, they’re in the Middle East protecting THEIR borders! What’s wrong with this picture people? Someone well informed has told me that the UN has been training troops HERE for at least 15 years. The reason, when it comes time to do house to house searches OUR troops will balk, but of course, not the UN troops (and not Blackwater).

    • CA – I have been trying to run down a very disturbing rumor about foreign troops for about 6 months now. Will keep you posted.

  • Just an aside…is it really illegal to have troops in the U.S. or is this a particular case? We’ve had Germans up at Alamagordo for years, training with planes. I think they left a couple of years ago, though…but there presence was large enough and for long enough that there was an Oktoberfest there and large billboard ads for moving/storage directed at German personnel!!!!!

    Then there is the matter of White Sands…not sure if there have been foreign troops there, but for years the Japanese were using the place for weapons research alongside.

    By the way….LM…here’s an update…White Sands WON’T be getting a combat unit (upsetting the locals who wanted the business)….because they’re needed overseas…

  • I am a little worried about this. I live in Louisiana. I do not feel safe with foreign troops in my area looking for “terrorists” especially when the government just recently determined that patriots like me that believe in the constitution are terrorists! “Terrorism prevention” sounds like an excuse to take guns, and they have the GPS coordinated on my house to make it easy for the foreign troops (since they can’t read street signs). Kissenger said “THEY” would have Americans disarmed by September!
    I will not call them, but a question I would like to ask is- why, after an “event” outside of our borders, would foreign troops not be guarding THEIR borders and be here????

  • Leaping Spark -

    Obama is so arrogant that he thinks that he can become ruler of the world. Thinks about it he brags to the Nation of Islam that America is a Muslim country, and then he visits European countrys that have large Muslim populations at every opportunity. If he put as much time into being POTUS as he does kissing the asses of our enemies, he would still be a waste,a fraud, and a lying, worthless POS, but at least we would know how he was going to screw us over.

  • CactusPatch -

    I don’t think that the people that live in these states are going to take “kindly” to UN Troops being in thier area. These countries speak English, and the Mexicans pretty much blend in here also. Hmmm….pretty sneaky. Who is in charge of this? The UN? Who is coordinating this? Homeland Security?

  • freedomchick -

    At this point in time, absolutly everyone that I have spoken to about the UN coming door to door insists that this would be concidered an act of war against the American people. This being the feeling, they would defend themselves. The UN has no right to act aginst the people and call it a drill. It is unconstitutional. I see this as an attempt to see if the American people will allow UN troops to remove our guns. An attempt of terrorizing us into submission. Will they also shut down internet communications at the same time, for our own “protection”?
