WNU Editor: Secretary of Defense Mark Esper said today, “Let me reassure you. There has been no talk whatsoever of martial law. There has been no talk whatsoever of mass quarantines of the United States or any of that other nonsense that is out there. So one of the things we’re going to do is, we’re going to set up, in the next day or so, a page on our DoD website that we’ll call ‘Mythbusters,’ right now, that will kind of look at what’s out there in terms of the rumor mill and we’ll be able to answer those and knock them down and keep them posted up there so people can refer to that page as to what’s happening. And if you have ideas, we’ll try and find a way, on that page, for folks to write in and say, hey, I’ve heard this, is there any truth to that. So that we can knock these myths down.”
