CNSNews.com - Army Investigating How and Why Troops Were Sent Into Alabama Town After Murder Spree I have nothing against the Army, but why in the hell were U.S. troops mobilized in response to the Alabama murder spree the other day? It's obvious that some Federal law was broken. From what I've read and heard on the news, the Alabama governor did not ask for assistance. Will anyone be held accountable for this, or will it be swept under the rug? I only worry about this because I know Vice President Biden would love to have military troops assisting law enforcement and being present on American streets. ---According to his "Omnibus Counterterrorism Act of 1995."
