Remember Jade Helm 15, The Controversial Military Exercise?

The military exercise Jade Helm 15 had generated enough conspiracy theories this year to gain mockery on late-night television and commentary from presidential candidates. The basic thrust of the concerns: The military was laying the groundwork for Obama’s martial law — if not now, then sometime in the future.

The exercise will end quietly today. Carried out in parts of Texas, Mississippi, Louisiana and Florida, it will conclude after two months of operations, said Suzanne Nagl, a spokeswoman for Army Special Operations Command, which oversaw it.

As initially detailed in planning documents, the exercise was to include elite service members from four military branches. It eventually was reduced to include 200 Special Operations forces and an additional 300 support personnel for most of the exercise, with about 700 hundred members of the Army’s 82nd Airborne Division traveling to Texas to train as part of Jade Helm for about five days in August.
