Intellihub Sloppy reporting Results in Facebook Panic
Summary: Just another lie to get Jews to stop supporting those who support Israel
    Here's a great example of why you can't believe everything you see on the Internet. In this case, a blog calling itself the "Intellihub - Civilian Intelligence Agency" reported about something it has absolutely no knowledge of, and as a result getting the story completely wrong.

    In a May 18, 2015 post titled Alert: Hundreds of military Humvees spotted heading towards Cleveland, Ohio shows a train with military vehicles passing through the Cleveland, Ohio area, and the story claims "The train was heading towards Cleveland for unknown reasons although a possible connection to planned upcoming protests has been mentioned." The "planned upcoming protests" are not actually planned as there is no posted date, but are related a pending verdict of police officer Michael Brelo who is on trial and awaiting the verdict for the November, 2012 shooting of a black couple who police thought had shot at them, resulting in a massive chase and 137 bullets being fired at the unarmed couple, killing both. Although many officers were involved, Officer Brelo is the only person facing murder charges.

    The problem is, the writer clearly has no idea that military vehicles, both war-damaged and in need of upgrades and overhauls, routinely go through the Cleveland, Ohio area on route to Lodi, Ohio where they repaired and upgraded, then shipped out again. I have seen these trains several times, with broken glass and other damage, and in one case a military vehicle was completely covered, for which I concluded it may have been hit an IED, meaning a roadside bomb, thus the vehicle was covered out of respect for American casualties, their families and the American people. After an overhaul, the vehicles are shipped out of Lodi, Ohio and back to military bases domestically and internationally.

    The article has one accidental redeeming value - although it does not state it, it does show how much Americans fear their own government. Overall, the article is a failure because the bloggers did not their due diligence researching the story.
