Document: #JadeHelm Commander Plans to “Operationalize The CONUS Base

General Cleveland penned a strategy document in September of 2014 titled “ARSOF Operating Concept 2022“. The strategy outlined in the document seeks to establish a world-wide network of military influence to gather intelligence on key populations and contain non-state actors, “empowered individuals”, militias, and other “irregular” threats. The document emphasizes the global nature of the threat, noting that the conflict will effectively erase borders.

Perhaps the most sensational portion of the document comes from the statement that Special Operations wants to “Operationalize the CONUS base“, meaning Continental United States. General Cleveland’s strategy is to utilize civilian assets to support deployed soldiers. The plan seeks to utilize non-governmental agencies, think tanks, academia, and other U.S. government agencies to support Special Operations goal of containing the threat of VEO’s (Violent Extremist Organizations), non-state actors, and other irregular threats.

The plan seeks to create a system to marshal civilian expertise to complete the mission of “enhancing” a host nations governance, stability, security, and rule of law. Under a section titled “Military Support to Governance” the document states:

Given the U.S. military’s assigned responsibilities in the areas of stability and governance, future joint formations must address shared interests and enhance host nation governance, security, economic development, and the rule of law. Doing so necessitates a system to procure, classify, marshal, and employ the appropriate civilian expertise to support or lead execution of stability tasks aligned with national security objectives.
