Sprawling Drug-War Training Complex Planned for U.S-Mexico Border

News ArchiveA company fronted by a former Navy SEAL is only a few weeks away from potentially gaining approval to develop a nearly 1,000-acre military and law enforcement training camp near the U.S. border in Southern California, less than 20-minute drone flight from the sister border cities of San Diego and Tijuana.

Massive Facility Would Serve Law Enforcers, Military and Their Drones

A company fronted by a former Navy SEAL is only a few weeks away from potentially gaining approval to develop a nearly 1,000-acre military and law enforcement training camp near the U.S. border in Southern California, less than 20-minute drone flight from the sister border cities of San Diego and Tijuana.  

The camp, which would be developed in three phases at a cost of up to $100 million (some $15 million for Phase 1), is being billed by its developer as a privately operated, state-of-the-art training center that would employ up to 200 people and serve as economic boon to the small California border town of Ocotillo, located in Imperial County.  

But there appears to be a deeper agenda in play with this project that has far more to do with profiting off the drug war — and assuring its escalation along the border — than it does with benefiting the community of Ocotillo.  

The camp, which will provide instruction in the operation of unmanned aerial systems, or drones, will feature a long airstrip and multiple heliports; a control tower and operations center; a vast amount of airspace, including a 25,000-foot above-ground-level (AGL) air ceiling; and a location only 87 miles from a major border population center (San Diego/Tijuana) that is ground zero on the West Coast for the drug war.

Given that drones are now precluded from operating, under normal conditions, over crowded urban areas, the rural location of the Wind Zero “camp” could prove to be particularly ideal as a staging site in the event an “emergency” might require their deployment quietly to the California coast in short order.
