SpecOps Forces Being Deployed in Ferguson, MO
Asymmetric Solutions, a private contractor firm consisting of retired U.S. Navy Seals and Army Special Forces, announced via social media that they have been called up for deployment in Ferguson, MO.
The announcement came via a tweet and did not include specifics of the deployment.
Missouri-based private security contractor Asymmetric Solutions, which employs elite former U.S. military special operators, tweeted Tuesday afternoon that the company is deploying a “high threat team in our own city”.
When responding via Twitter to a request for information, a spokesperson said “we cannot professionally hand out that information, regardless of client or location. We put a security team of former SOF personnel into the STL area at the request of a client.”
The entire tweet reads “We’ve been to Baghdad, Kabul, KL, Manilla, Peshwar, Bogata. Never guessed we would deploy a high threat team in our own city. #furgeson”
Asymmetric Solutions employs former U.S. Navy SEALs and Army special operators.
The group later clarified their mission is one of “escort detail augment for individual” in Ferguson. One might be able to assume this means they will be a part of additional security detail for DOJ head Eric Holder or other high profile individuals.
In any event, it’s profoundly interesting that the same sort of security detail needed in hot zones of Iraq is now necessary in Ferguson, MO.
