Since the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) announced that it would audit all National Guard members who entered the capital’s alert, CNN News reported on the 19th that 12 soldiers have been transferred from their posts for failing the audit.
On the same day, the FBI also revealed that extremists tried to infiltrate the National Guard to disrupt Biden’s inauguration ceremony.
In response to the results of the investigation, Army General Daniel Hokansen said that 2 of the 12 soldiers who were transferred were reported for making “inappropriate remarks”, while 10 others were found to have “suspective behavior” during the review process.
Hokansen stressed that the current investigation results do not confirm the existence of a conclusive disciplinary violation of the 12 people, and the decision to transfer from their posts is mainly to prevent “any possible accident”.
CNN said in a report that in conjunction with relevant statements from the U.S. Army, various U.S. military units, including the National Guard, have repeatedly stressed that members report their concerns about suspected extremism in the army in a timely manner.
Before the National Guard entered Washington, D.C., the force had trained soldiers to help them identify dangers and take action faster when on duty.
Although Hokansen insisted that no significant extremism had been found in the security forces, the Washington Post released a message on the 19th that some right-wing extremists under the banner of “support Trump” are planning to disguise themselves as members of the National Guard to carry out weakly guarded facilities and areas. Raid.
The Washington Post said that the FBI has intercepted the operation map and deployment information made by members of the organization. It is reported that these extremists are both individuals preparing to adopt “lone wolf attacks” and some organized operations.
The above-mentioned various information that can be used to launch attacks has also circulated within them. At present, the FBI has informed all law enforcement departments and alert forces in Washington, D.C.
According to the report, the FBI’s analysis is based on the interception and analysis of “suspicious traffic” after the demonstrators stormed Congress on January 6, and said that “there may be multiple forces involved in the attack”.
However, so far, the FBI has not been able to determine the specific location of the possible attacks, nor has it disclosed the possibility of these attacks.
According to previous reports by the American media, many right-wing extremists believe in a theory called “Q Anonymous”.
The theory comes from an account posted under the online name “Q” of the online forum, which claims that there is an “anti-Trump” force in the U.S. government, which will disguise itself to lurk in the Trump administration, undermine Trump’s policies and try to manipulate the U.S. regime.
Although this statement lacks substantive basis, many netizens and even famous people believe it, and include Obama, Hillary and other American politicians who have publicly expressed their political discord with Trump as the so-called “lurking force”.
Ironically, this conspiracy theory called supporting Trump firmly believes in the statement that “Trump is in Russia” and says that it is a strategy that Trump seeks to expose the “lurkers”.
