Pentagon Launches “Jade Helm”: Troops to “Operate Undetected Amongst Civilian Population”
Role players to practice infiltrating towns during controversial exercise

The “realistic” military training exercise, which will involve the Green Berets, Navy Seals, and the 82nd Airborne Division, is set to take place from July 15-Sepember 15, but has prompted concerns after Texas and Utah were labeled “hostile” territory in documents related to the exercise.

Lawmakers who long were critical of the 2014 prisoner swap, meanwhile, pointed to the latest development in reviving those concerns.
