Re: Could Americans Control Direction of “Civilian National Security Force” under Obama?
No one has yet qualified what Obama meant when he stated in July 2008: "We cannot continue to rely on our military to achieve the national security objectives we've set. We've got to have a civilian national security force that's just as powerful, just as strong, just as well funded.”
Brief Historical note: Germany under Hitler during hard economic times set up a volunteer neighborhood/community "Civilian National Security Forces" to protect the Homeland. Once established, the civilian force became a “neighbor” Political Enforcement Arm of the Nazi Government. And was subsequently run by the Gestapo.
Could Americans control the direction a civilian national security force might take under Obama? How would local police interact with a "civilian national security force” that is just as powerful as the U.S. Military? Would volunteer civilians have access to Citizens' private records? Could U.S. private mercenary companies now contracted in Iraq work with a "Civilian National Security Force" on U.S. soil?
Could Constitutional Fourth Amendment rights be trashed including illegal search and seizure. Could Obama's "Civilian National Security Force" members handle neighborhood informants and share like the Gestopal did in seized and forfeited assets from Americans.
