BUNKERVILLE, Nevada (INTELLIHUB) —Investigator Doug Hagmann, of The Hagmann and Hagmann Report, wrote in a public email, to radio host and researcher Steve Quayle, that he has been speaking to a source inside the Department of Homeland Security about the recent surrender of federal agents in the Bundy Ranch standoff.
According to the email, Hagmann’s source claims that the Bundy Ranch standoff is far from over and that the surrender was a merely strategical ploy. The source also told Hagmann that the incident was used as a test run, to plan for future instances of resistance and to gather information about militia members.
Some interesting points were mentioned in the email which can be read in full below:

From Doug Hagmann
At 1750 hours ET, I was contacted by my source within the Department of Homeland Security regarding the current situation at the Bundy Ranch. To put it bluntly, the people are being hoodwinked into believing that the situation is being resolved. It is not. It is a strategic de-escalation to fool the public. This source stated that the retreat of the BLM agents and the release of the cattle was actually crafted as a potential plan yesterday (Friday, 11 April 2014) based on the following:
1. A military assessment of satellite and drone surveillance imagery of the “patriot resistance. Drones under the control of the U.S. military were in use, taking real-time photographic images of not just the activity at the ranch, but “identifying the protesters, any arms and any supplies they might have or be carrying. “Mission accomplished.”
2. Real-time communication intercepts between patriots on-site and their off-site support;
3. Active monitoring of internet traffic regarding the coverage of events at ranch;
4. The monitoring of real-time video from the scene.
This source stated that a response by the patriot movement was anticipated, although exceeded their expectations. Although this was a real operation, they also ran this as a test case for future government operations once they saw the response. They were also actively managing the media, in some cases threatening to cut off White House access to anyone covering the event.
Despite this, the coverage by the alternative media began to create a public relations problem that was not easily managed. Note the lack of acknowledgment by the White House regarding this event. They are intentionally framing it as a state issue, despite the fact that all federal response has been and continues to be from the White House. There is a reason for this – a reason that has not been identified in any of the public reports to date. I will explain in further detail in a follow-up report on Sunday, after this source attends [redacted] to obtain more specific information about future federal operations. Regardless, according to this source, the government will take back ‘their land’ as they must to fulfill international obligations. It was never about grazing rights or anything other than (1) “securing clear title” to the land, and (2) further demonizing any patriotic resistance. It is my understanding, based on the information from this source, that it is a critical task to create a situation that will also advance their agenda of gun control and confiscation.
The points made in this email are not far-fetched when looking at how the government handled the “Occupy” protests. Many of the initial protests were mostly used to gather information and then eventually when things got violent. In fact, the government agents knew exactly who they were dealing with and in many cases they had already infiltrated the movement.
