A troubling Defense Department policy has been uncovered by The Washington Times. It outlines President Obama’s authority to use military force, arms, and drones in military operations against American Citizens and civil unrest.
““This appears to be the latest step in the administration’s decision to use force within the United States against its citizens,” said a defense official opposed to the directive.”
These are bold words coming from the defense official, who clearly states their attack is against US citizens. The Directive No. 3025.18, which was issues in Decembe2010, has been named, Defense Support of Civil Authorities and states that U.S. commanders “are provided emergency authority under this directive.”
