When he was campaigning in July of '08 Obama made this shocking statement "We cannot rely on the military in order to achieve the national security objectives we've set". "We've got to have a civilian national security force that is just as powerful, just as strong, just as well funded as the military". Was Obama pandering to his extremist violent left wing base? Was he advocating a new revolution? Did he give food for thought to nut cases like Laughner? Maybe Obama made good on his campaign promise. Maybe there is a well funded little civilian army training somewhere in the US.
