RED ALERT!!! 2008 Defense Authorization Bill authorizes use of US military for domestic purposes!

Dennis Kucinich: 2008 Defense Authorization Bill authorizes use of US military for domestic purposes

Fri Nov 09th 2007, 09:01 AM
Representative Dennis Kucinich reported this during an interview with WINZ Miami radio station this morning. He is reading through this bill and for the first time last evening, noticed this language that has been inserted into the 2008 Defense Authorization Bill.
He said that this language jumped off the page at him and that he was very concerned that people learn about this provision that would authorize domestic operations for the US military.
This is a PDF file. I have typed out the pertinent section.
HR 1585
Section 1615, page 672 (of 794)
(a) DETERMINATION OF REQUIREMENTS---- The Secretary of Defense shall determine the military-unique capabilities needed to be provided by the Department of Defense to support civil authorities in an incident of national significance or a catastrophic incident.
(1) PLAN----The Secretary of Defense shall develop and implement a plan, in coordination with the Secretaries of the military departments and the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, for providing the funds and resources necessary to develop and maintain the following:
(A) The military-unique capabilities determined under subsection (a).
(B) Any additional capabilities determined by the Secretary to be necessary to support the use of the active components and the reserve components of the armed forces for homeland defense missions, domestic emergency responses, and providing military support to civil authorities.
(2) TERM OF PLAN---- The plan required under paragraph (1) shall cover at least five years.
Please call/write your members of Congress to alert them to this language and its implications.
Thank you, Representative Kucinich, for your dedication to the people of this country.
