UPDATE: Def. Contractors Issue Chilling Statement About UN Trucks Spotted in US
Mysterious military-style trucks have been making their way down Virginia roads — and apparently no one knows who they belong to.
Snopes contacted Alpine Amoring, who said that the trucks “seen in these photographs were purchased by the United Nations for use outside the United States.”
“A number of defense industry manufacturers are based in and around Washington, D.C., (a region that includes Virginia) for obvious logistical reasons, and the representative confirmed that the trucks were ordered by the U.N. for use in locations abroad,” it continued.
But hat explanation hasn’t solved the mystery. When Snopes reached out to Alpine Amoring, they denied the vehicles had been produced by the company. The online news agency also contacted BAE Systems, which gave the same answer.
So where have the trucks been coming from and where are they going?
Facebook users noticed that the same trucks had been seen a year prior on multiple American roadways.
In an attempt to answer questions, Tim Brown of Freedom Outpost offered some description of the appearances.
“There are a lot of stories that are reported about United Nations vehicles being transported on U.S. highways,” he said. “The latest comes by way of video footage that shows U.N. trucks that seem to be attempting to hide their logo as they are transported on a U.S. highway in Northern Louisiana. The trucks appear to be brand new U.N. medical trucks, as identified with red crosses.”
The question must be asked: Who is trying to hide the logos? And why do full military combat style trucks, which are both bulletproof and sealed from gas, need to be transported across the country?
There are still no answers.
