Concerns about federal agents wearing military camo raised by DoD in after-action review | Military Times

Defense Secretary Mark Esper raised concerns on a misconception of the public about mistakenly identifying federal agents wearing camo as military officials on domestic issues that happened during a protest in Portland, Orgon. A trending video with 10 million views captured a former Navy Seabee having his hand broken by federal officers. Esperā€™s concerns were raised as part of an after-action review currently evaluated at the National Guardā€™s response to protests in the wake of the May 25th killing of George Floyd. ā€œI can say unequivocally there are no Department of Defense assets that are deployed to or are pending deployment or are looking to deploy to Portland at this time,ā€ as said by chief Pentagon spokesman Jonathan Hoffman.
