Obama's 'civilian national security force' -- huh?
I'm not sure I even care what he really meant, something left as vague as this freaks me out.
Just as powerful, just as well-funded?Do you realize what kind of budget that would be? Here's a few quotes from the press release summarizing the Defense Department's budget.
President Bush’s Fiscal Year 2009 budget provides $515.4 billion in discretionary budget authority for the Department of Defense, a $35.9 billion or 7.5 percent increase over the enacted level for Fiscal Year 2008.So will President Obama get over $1 trillion in discretionary budget authority for the defense department plus this "civilian national security force?"
One more question for you Mr. Obama: Who will this fanciful "force" be fighting in particular and what weapons will they require?
