Military Are there standing orders for prisons to be bombed if war breaks out on U.S. soil?

A few days ago, I was reading a web forum, and somebody mentioned that
if war broke out inside the United States (I guess meaning civil war, or a massive
invasion or nuclear attack), that the government will order the military to bomb the prisons. The post was very vague , but I am assuming that he ment with the inmates still inside. :O

I did a quick Google using various words, and phrases in quotes but came up empty.
One one hand, this sounds like an incredibly cruel and heartless thing to do, but
on the other hand, it kind of makes sense, at least with Maximum Security/Supermax
prisons. Many/most people in those facilities have nothing to lose, or value of human life, and they could potentialy be turned into soldiers or terrorists by the enemy.
If anyone can shed some light on this, I would be grateful.
