Detailed information about how many rounds of .223 caliber ammunition the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is right now in the process of purchasing for Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) has been deliberately hidden from public view. Infowars reports that a document posted at the FedBizOpps.gov government website has been clearly blacked out with a marker in the sections that indicate quantities of ammunition purchased.

Just within the past six months, DHS has stockpiled more than one billion rounds of ammo, including 450 million rounds of .40 caliber hollow point ammo earlier this year to fight “homegrown terrorism” (https://www.naturalnews.com/035649_DHS_ammunition_domestic_war.html). But this latest purchase has more people than ever questioning what the eerily Nazi SS-like agency is up to now with its blatant censorship and secrecy.
According to the FedBizOpps.gov announcement, DHS is paying nearly $5 million to have Minnesota-based Federal Cartridge Company produce an unknown quantity of both .223 62 grain duty and .223 64 grain duty ammo for U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) and the U.S. Federal Protective Service (FPS). The ammo will reportedly be used for both training and “performance of duties” purposes.
But the fact that it was decided by someone, somewhere, to go back and redact certain pieces of information from the purchase document in violation of the law is raising all sorts of red flags. Apart from specific Congressional authorization or a legitimate national security reason, it is not legally permissible to redact this type of information from federal purchase documents.
