Recent unrest in London has sparked media interest in the U.S. military’s plans for civil unrest, including a report from the Atlantic on a little known document called CONPLAN 3502. With economies declining around the world and social unrest spreading throughout the Middle East and even into Western democracies, many wonder what would happen if this sort of unrest and violence were to spread to the United States. Would the response be measured and calm, respecting popular movements and upholding fundamental human rights, or would the response look something more like what is happening in Syria?

To understand just what would happen in the event of widespread unrest in the United States, you must first familiarize yourself with CONPLAN 3502, the classified military plan for civil disturbances. A slide from a U.S. Northern Command presentation previously published by this site indicates that CONPLAN 3502 is one of several Contingency Plans (CONPLANs) for domestic U.S. military operations in the event of a disaster, terrorist attack or national security special event (NSSE). Several of the plans deal with Defense Support to Civil Authorities (DSCA) in times of disaster or crisis, including pandemic influenza outbreaks, nuclear and radiological events, as well as chemical weapons attacks. Though, CONPLAN 3502 is unique in that it deals exclusively with support operations conducted with local authorities during times of “civil disturbance”. Because CONPLAN 3502 is classified “Secret”, it has not been released to the public and little is known of its contents. However, through bits of information found in a number of relevant documents, a fairly coherent picture of military civil disturbance planning may be ascertained.

Prior to the establishment of U.S. Northern Command (USNORTHCOM) in 2002, the U.S. Army controlled planning for military civil disturbance operations, producing at least four separate versions of an Operations Plan (OPLAN) commonly referred to as Garden Plot. Four separate versions of this plan were obtained via Freedom of Information Act requests made by GovernmentAttic.org, including plans going back as far as 1968. These plans served as the groundwork for domestic civil disturbance operations as late as September 11, 2001 when Garden Plot was activated as Operation Noble Eagle. Garden Plot described the tactics, techniques, and procedures used by military personnel to conduct law enforcement operations, including riot control, domestic reconnaissance and surveillance, military law enforcement and even forcible detention of U.S. citizens. The U.S. military claims these capabilities are legally afforded them under Title 10, Chapter 15 a section of U.S. Code that comes from the Insurrection Act of 1807.
