Exclusive: BLM Claims It Will “Stand Down” In Nevada, Snipers, Agents and No Fly Zone Remain In Place

A small victory for liberty activists across the country as the Bureau of Land Management announced Saturday that it would stand down in its operations of rounding up cattle from Nevada rancher Clive Bundy. As we reported, the BLM ended its operation of rounding up Bundy’s cattle after hundreds of protestors rallied to the family’s side. Hundreds more protestors are on the way.

“Due to escalating tensions, the cattle have been released from the enclosures in order to avoid violence and help restore order,” the U.S. Bureau of Land Management said in a short statement after releasing nearly 400 cattle.

What most media won’t tell you however, is that while the BLM has been ordered to stand down, their agents have not been ordered to leave the area around the Bundy ranch. In fact, that is not happening, as those nearly 200 federal agents including snipers have not left the area.

Sources on the ground in Nevada tell Benswann.com, “They spotted night time activity in the hills surrounding the Bundy property. After catching about an hours sleep they awoke to see three snipers skulking in the bush surrounding the camps that people have set up. The people who have been there are not leaving and more are still coming in from all over the US. The airspace over the Bundy ranch has been shut down in a 3 mile, 30,000 feet perimeter so that no private helicopters or planes can fly over to take pictures or survey what the feds are up to.”

It is important to note that the FAA instituted its “no fly zone” over and around the Bundy’s property only hours before the BLM announced it would stand down. The FAA has not lifted the no fly zone and says it will remain in place until May 11, 2014.

Sources go on to say, “So far Federal Agents are still trolling the roads, surveilling the territory and the camps in big black SUVs with blacked out windows. We need more numbers out there. There’s a Federal Express outlet in St. George, Utah on South Airport Rd. If need be get ready to send supplies. If the government decides to shut the roads down to try to contain the numbers of people coming in to take a stand the supply lines could be compromised.”
