Are YOU an "insurgent"?

"The United States will continue to experience major challenges in stability operations if it does not have this policing capacity. These challenges include creating the ability to establish basic law and order, as well as defeat or deter criminal organizations, terrorists, and insurgents. In some cases, allied countries may be able to fill this gap. Allies did this effectively in Bosnia and Kosovo, both of which were successful in establishing security. In other cases, the United States may not be able to count on allied support. The United States should not depend on allies to supply these capabilities, because doing so would limit U.S. freedom of action on the international stage. Consequently, the United States should seriously consider building a high-end police capacity."

The law enforcement objectives seem to be already met by existing agencies - federal, state and local. This seems to be a measure to usurp civilian police authority and have any local LEAs to take a back seat to the new federal authority.

I'd bet that info gleaned from the federal/state Fusion Centers would be used to identify "insurgents".

Pissed off any overzealous local LEOs or maybe someone with political aspirations? How about that bitch in line with the marshmallow crème?

Great blog! Keep it up.
