ACLU demands info on domestic military deployments

The American Civil Liberties Union is demanding more details on the domestic deployments, which appear to violate the Posse Comitatus Act, which prohibits use of the military to direct internal affairs of the US. The ACLU warns that without fully knowing the reasoning and justifications behind the Army's plan, the domestic deployments could be used to expand a militarized surveillance apparatus that already includes the National Security Agency's warrantless wiretapping program and DHS's plans to turn military spy satellites inside US borders.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The ACLU can demand all they want; unfortunately, with an enabling and complicit congress behind it, the white house will scream "national security" the doors to the federal palace will be shut, the drawbridges will be up, and the moats will be stocked with piranhas.
