Here's Ready's initial statement, also posted on New Saxon:
LINE IN THE SAND
Operation LINE IN THE SAND was a resounding success. A multi-ethnic coalition of citizens was assembled to battle the Drug Cartel's narco-terrorists in the Arizona desert on the outskirts of Phoenix metropolitan area. An ad hoc raid team also known as Ready's Rangers was assembled from heavily armed volunteers from around the nation. Patrol Leader J.T. Ready lead an assault on a drug smuggling compound known as the "Slaughter House" by locals. After securing the area without incident a desert command post was established consisting of militia units, humanitarian aide representatives, and national media covering the event. Recon patrols were conducted for twenty four hours in narco-terrorist held territory of the United States.
These sweeps had the overall effect of denying access to the territory from drug cartel incursions and preventing the delivery of chemical warfare in the form of illicit drugs to our community. Local CI's (Confidential Informants) reported seeing drug trains pushed deep into the rugged mountains away from the armed patrols. Three live UDA's (Undocumented Aliens) were captured and one UDA corpse was found by the teams. The crime scene was processed by an inter-agency representation of Pinal Co. Deputies, Maricopa Co. Deputies, and agents from the Bureau of Land Management who responded to calls made by the teams in the vicinity of the anti-terrorist operation.
No major injuries were sustained by volunteers. Medical aid was given to treat heat exhaustion injuries of the UDA's by Ready's Rangers. The UDA corpse is currently being processed by the Maricopa County Coroner's office.
End of Statement.
Ready also posted this statement in this other Stormfront thread:
All of our Rangers' actions are lawful according to Arizona Revised Statutes regarding Justified Use of Deadly Force by legally armed citizens. If you are unfamiliar with these valid statutes; (I am a AZ D.P.S. certified CCW Instructor, NRA Instructor, Game & Fish Instructor, and former Recon Marine), then I highly suggest you study the laws before posting errant comments concerning the lawfulness of our anti-terrorist operations.
Furthermore, any volunteers or infiltrators caught engaged in illegal acts during our patrols will be placed under citizen's arrest themselves and turned over to Law Enforcement along with the narco-terrorists and UDA's (Undocumented Aliens) whom we place in custody.
Fellow national socialist Harry Hughes also posted his own account on his blog, along with several good photos. He reported that after getting the media squared away, a base camp and perimeter was established at the abandoned slaughter house off route 8007 & 8045. Numerous foot and vehicle patrols took place throughout the night. Although hot during the day, the night was pleasantly cool and comfortable. Stephen Lemons and Dennis Gilman of the Phoenix New Times, both anti-racist progressives, showed up to report on the operation (they have sort of a love-hate relationship with the NSM). The primary objectives of this show of force were to raise public awareness of the drug trade and human smuggling, and to highlight the resultant exploitation and destruction of our public lands.
Even those White Nationalists who customarily look down their noses at the NSM are expressing respect and admiration for the people involved in this ops.
