Bush doesn't "own" Biden- so how is he to disown Biden for advocating a weakening of Posse Comitatus?
Ridge merely says "it may come up as a part of a discussion. It does not mean that it will ever be used or that the discussion will conclude that it even should be used.'' "
Personally I interpret this as a trial balloon and a true indicator of the thickness of Ridge's head.
Do you honestly believe that Biden just happened along, and just "happened" to be thinking along these lines????
Proposals such as this do not happen in a vacumn.
Before the thread is up, you'll see references to the New World Order and the STASI as well as mention of the Patriot Act, the War on Drugs and a thousand other bogeymen -- real or imagined -- that bear no weight whatsoever on this issue.
Interesting, isn't it, that we'd managed to survive from 1787-1878 without a Posse Comitatus act? I wonder what was in place then.
Oh, and for anyone who thinks we're all doomed, please send me all of your money and cool electronics. Contact me by Freepmail to find out how to get it to me.
