Asymmetric Solutions, a St. Louis, Missouri based firearms training company and military contractor, appeared to have ignored operational security (OpSec) when they tweeted that they would be deploying to the streets of Ferguson:
We’ve been to Baghdad, Kabul, KL, Manilla, Peshwar, Bogata. Never guessed we would deploy a high threat team in our own city. #furgeson

After some feedback from Twitter users, the company clarified that they would not be working with either the law enforcement officers or the protesters – but rather an “escort detail augment for (an) individual”. Let’s see… who just arrived in Ferguson that would think he needs former SEAL’s and Delta operators? Eric Holder, perhaps?
