Like a Thief In The Night: USA Military At Home With Night Raid Equipment

Congratulations Americans; Barack Obama has signed in the [NDAA] "National Defense Authorization Act ” H.R. 1540  in Hawaii on the 31st of December.

Even though he said that he has
"serious reservations with certain provisions that regulate the detention, interrogation, and prosecution of suspected terrorists.”
he did seek to assure
“Moreover, I want to clarify that my Administration will not authorize the indefinite military detention without trial of American citizens. Indeed, I believe that doing so would break with our most important traditions and values as a Nation. My Administration will interpret section 1021 in a manner that ensures that any detention it authorizes complies with the Constitution, the laws of war, and all other applicable law.” 
But then again: he did sign it in; so perhaps it's you that should have  "serious reservations".
If that doesn't stir your curiosity, perhaps what I just read at theintelhub.com will. 

"According to reports from the Daily Kos and Russia Today, a company specializing in night raid equipment was awarded a 23 million dollar contract from the Department of Defense and subsequently went on to lobby for the NDAA which has given the government the power to indefinitely detain American citizens.
Surefire LLC openly lobbed for the House version of the NDAA, a bill many have claimed has effectively ended the Bill of Rights, months after receiving the 23 million dollar contact from the DOD.
Why would this company be receiving a contract which could outfit at least 30,000 troops with new and updated night raid equipment when the U.S. is supposedly pulling troops out of Iraq and, to a smaller extent, Afghanistan?"

 So your troops are coming home, and with up to 30,000 sets of brand new night raid facilitating equipments.
Obviously someone thinks they’re going to need them.
Now keep in mind that it was reported by The Washington Post Dec 2008 [that as a minimum]
“The U.S. military expects to have 20,000 uniformed troops inside the United States by 2011 trained to help state and local officials respond to a nuclear terrorist attack or other domestic catastrophe, according to Pentagon officials.”

Happy New Year!
