"STRATEGY FOR HOMELAND DEFENSE AND SUPPORT"

The federal government wants the military to undertake domestic surveillance operations as part of its Homeland Security initiatives to counteract terrorism. But it appears that the Bush Administration still cannot see the forest for the trees.

Don't you just love the following from our think-tank thinkers in Washington:

Transnational terrorist groups view the world as an integrated, global battlespace in which to exploit perceived U.S. vulnerabilities, wherever they may be.
"Wherever they may be." What's to ponder? The military ought to be on our borders, not surveiling American citizens!

UPDATE: Here's an interesting post, with which I agree, from John Hawkins of "Right Wing News." It's germane to the issue of government surveillance -- something Londoners seem content with, but with which I suggest Americans ought to be alarmed.
