The first red flag is that there is no "Shelbyville County" in Tennessee.

There is the town of Shelbyville, located in Bedford County. Shelbyville itself is definitely not rural, but it is surrounded by rural areas.
There is a Shelby County, but it's way over on the south-west corner of the state. And it's hardly rural; it's entirely filled by the city of Memphis.

Looking at the list of "camps" on that site, it's like he found a list of everywhere any group of refugees settled and immediately elevated it to a terrorist camp.

There are regular Appleseed events nearby and a military base outside Tullahoma. There are also a few thousand rednecks around there with lifted 4WD pickups, ATVs, bullet-proof Dixie flags, who are well armed and who have no respect for private property boundaries. If an Islamic terrorist camp exists it will be quickly found and taken care of.

In reality, though, if there are any potential terrorist training camps in Bedford County area they are of the white domestic extremist-Christian kind.

I don't know where these reports originated from, so somebody living in the area in law enforcement should check them out before any conclusions can really be made about them. Here are a few media articles about them:


According to the Bedford County sherriff, the camp under suspicion in Bedford Co "does not exist:" (Times-Gazette, by David Melson:

Column: False 'terrorist camp' claim based on misinformation (3/5/15) | Shelbyville Times-Gazette

There is one in Red House, VA however that has been known about for a long time, of which their real reason for being has been either declared officially "unknown" or is being "protected":



"There are now numerous MOA compounds across the United States. Estimates vary regarding how many there are, ranging from 22 to 35. As of this writing, states where MOA has set up shop are: Alaska, Arizona, California, Colorado, Georgia, Illinois, Kansas, Massachusetts, Michigan, New York, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Texas, Tennessee, Virginia, Washington, and West Virginia."
