Is the mighty U.S. military going domestic, in contradiction of the 1878 Posse Comitatus Act? It sure looks that way to me. In June the Pentagon approved a sweeping new Strategy for Homeland Defense and Civil Support [PDF], redirecting its energies to deterring attacks deep inside the 50 states. Activities include domestic intelligence-gathering operations—some already underway—and various disaster responses giving the Defense Department the lead role. Good round-ups in the Washington Post and FoxNews.com.
