Default Directive outlines Obama’s policy to use the military against citizens

I hope this hasn't been posted already and if so I apologize. It appears that a 2010 Pentagon directive on military support to civilian authorities details what critics say is a troubling policy that envisions the Obama administration’s potential use of military force against Americans.

The article has copyright requirements so I'm listing only the link. Link

What do you all think?

I thought the Posse Comitatus Act kept the federal government from using the military under any circumstances against American civilians? Is this another law Obama intends to ignore?

According to the article, the directive has already been written and is in place. It gives the president the right to use military forces to quell civil disturbances. Tyranny anyone?

A Military unit has ALREADY been used against the people. It's called the National Guard.

QUOTE FROM WIKIPEDIA:
Quote:
On September 24, 1957 President Dwight D. Eisenhower federalized the entire Arkansas National Guard in order to ensure the safe entry of the Little Rock 9 to Little Rock Central High School the following day. Governor Orval Faubus had previously used members of the guard to deny the students entry to the school.
Normally The National Guard is under control of the state governors but it can be Federalized. Remember it is a Reserve unit of the Armed Forces.

The National Guard and the Coast Guard aren't included in the Posse Comitatus Act as they figured that would be the only force necessary due to emergency situations. They didn't want the regular military to be involved due to the tyrannical nature of using regular soldiers against civilians. Of course that means nothing to the Obama Administration. Anything to further what they consider to be the common good and laws be damned.

The National guard is normally a state unit. Governors have brought it to bear for years to maintain order. Little Rock was different only in that Eisenhower asked for it.

But he did not organize it as a purposeful unit to be used against civilians. This directive seems more of an intentional purposed Federal military unit being created for that function.

If activated, Posse Commutates will be lying in a heap along with the 2nd, 3rd and 4th Amendments.

Simple. He needs a riot to call the troops in and he hasn't gotten that yet. The way he is governing, it will happen eventually. What he doesn't realize is that a lot of troops don't like him and will desert before they fire on friends and neighbors.
