The Army’s “Internment/Resettlement” Camps

8 Aug

The private sector may be crumbling, but the US military, the biggest and most destructive government program in history, is open for business.

The US Army is running an ad on its website for anyone interested in working as an Internment/Resettlement Specialist. Just take a look at what these frightening job responsibilities include:

Internment/Resettlement (I/R) Specialists in the Army are primarily responsible for day-to-day operations in a military confinement/correctional facility or detention/internment facility. I/R Specialists provide rehabilitative, health, welfare, and security to U.S. military prisoners within a confinement or correctional facility; conduct inspections; prepare written reports; and coordinate activities of prisoners/internees and staff personnel.

Some of your duties as an Internment/Resettlement Specialist may include:

  • Assist with the supervision and management of confinement and detention operations
  • Provide external security to confinement/corrections facilities or detention/internment facilities
  • Provide counseling and guidance to individual prisoners within a rehabilitative program
  • Prepare or review reports and records of prisoners/internees and programs

Correctional/internment facilities? I have to admit that the US government is good at one thing: creating fluffy names for evil acts. During WW2, of course, the US didn’t have concentration camps, we had “relocation centers” for hundreds of thousands of innocent Japanese citizens. Dropping tons of bombs on civilians is “collateral damage,” and Arabs defending their homes from the US war machine are “insurgents.”

As Chalmers Johnson has said, either we give up our empire or live under it. Unfortunately, Americans have made peace (so to speak) with the latter.
