This has been noticed. Of course we have no direct knowledge.

Full Spectrum Operations in the Homeland: A “Vision” of the Future (Small Wars Journal, 25 July 2012)
In this paper, we posit a scenario in which a group of political reactionaries take over a strategically positioned town and have the tacit support of not only local law enforcement but also state government officials, right up to the governor. Under present law, which initially stemmed from bad feelings about Reconstruction, the military’s domestic role is highly circumscribed. In the situation we lay out below, even though the governor refuses to seek federal help to quell the uprising (the usual channel for military assistance), the Constitution allows the president broad leeway in times of insurrection.
Military Will Defeat Any Militia Type Rebellion On US Soil According To Study (OpEdNews, 24 September 2012)
Report Will Make Every American Well Rehearsed In What Our Government & Military Is Prepared To Do If Ever Confronted With Homegrown Insurgents
Phi Beta Iota: While the military is correct to plan for every eventuality, we consider it highly unlikely that the militia would try to hold any ground, and much more likely that states would be compelled to declare secession and cause a Constitutional crisis. US troops placed against the citizenry on US soil will fail because they will not have legitimacy, and this time around they are facing a public that is burdened with 22.4% unemployment, severe inflationary pressures, and a growing awareness that the federal government has failed. The US Government appears to lack the ability as well as the inclination to prepare a proper domestic intelligence estimate across the political-legal, socio-economic, ideo-cultural, techno-demographic, and natural-geographic domains. The US Government also appears to lack the ability as well as the inclination to develop a strategy for stabilizing and reconstructing the USA by devising a Whole of Government campaign plan and redirecting dollars from the very wasteful agricultural, defense, energy, health, and justice complexes, toward localized resilience and jobs with living wages. Here to the side is a chart of the preconditions of revolution that we believe are at an advanced stage in the USA.
