The S is definitely closer to HTF than many realize. Here’s something that caught my eye from the article:
“The directive states clearly that it is for engaging civilians during times of unrest.
A U.S. official said the Obama administration considered but rejected deploying military force under the directive during the recent standoff with Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy and his armed supporters.
Mr. Bundy is engaged in a legal battle with the federal Bureau of Land Management over unpaid grazing fees. Along with a group of protesters, Mr. Bundy in April confront.ed federal and local authorities in a standoff that ended when the authorities backed down.”
So….anyone up for some more PT, Neighborhood Protection Team training, or prepping? It seems that Garand and Lawson were right on the money with the title of their work, “A Failure of Civility.”
Civility is failing. Ginormously.
