DHS's military build-up
Why is the DHS amassing enough firepower and materiel to outfit a small nation's army? Here's what Janet Napolitano has quietly purchased for the DHS and about which the media has shown not the slightest curiosity?
-2.5Billion rounds of .40cal, hollow-point bullets
-7,000 fully automatic assault rifles
-9,000 armored personnel/combat carriers and riot control vehicles
-a $2Million contract with a training-target manufacturer who makes targets of pregnant women, children, and elderly gun owners for residential combat training
-hundreds of bullet-proof guard checkpoints with stop-and-go lights
-hired hundreds of private security guards to protect government buildings
-hundreds of sets of body armor and riot gear
-training exercises in which DHS agents armed with semi-automatic weapons check the ID's of ordinary citizens at gov't building checkpoints.
If this doesn't look like a military buildup in preparation for possibly, martial law, I don't know what does. Why won't the media demand to know what's going on? Why won't the administration hold a press conference to explain? Why in hell won't the media confront Jay Karney and keep asking him until he answers or starts crying?
