INFORMATION CONTAINED IN THIS REPORT IS PROPRIETARY AND SENSITIVE DO NOT RELEASE OUTSIDE OF AUTHORIZED AND APPROVED RECIPIENTS The Highlights questions, posted on his Facebook account, regarding destruction of an oil pipeline valve, were validated as legitimate. Marc Sanderson, one of the radical members, and a “Veterans Respond” leader, was in contact with three hours prior to the post. It is assessed that Sanderson is likely providing with guidance. Movements of possible weapons caches into Camp 2 indicate that groups within camp have progressed from the planning stage, to the preparatory phase, which includes logistics and personnel movement. There are no indications yet that the groups have moved into the operational phase. It is confirmed the primary method of secure communication among “Veterans Respond” is “Slack”. VR have at least three channels, one being general admin. There are no indications that VR has adopted unsecure RF communications used by camp security. The relationship between camp security groups and newly arrived veterans is tenuous, per embedded sources. The Details A. NORTH DAKOTA FUSION CENTER ii. Intel Update a. In an interview with TYT, a member of Veterans Respond stated that the group was there to clean up, build new structures on high ground, provide training, and participate in offensive actions. This is contrary to the former interviews that veterans were only there to provide training and peaceful assistance. This likely indicates VR having been influenced by extreme factions within camp, or that their original plan included conducting offensive actions against DAPLSEC and LE. b. Majority of veterans are spending their days assisting in building hardened structures and other logistical duties. c. “Veterans Respond” confirmed their use of a dedicated media team. This team is primarily working on production of propaganda pieces, and stated they will take images and video of actions for use in high profile #NODAPL media. iii. TigerSwan Past 24 Hours a.
