UPDATED POST: Original link was inoperative. A Google search provided this link. Article from Tuesday, September 30, 2008, Army Times. Trying to find current status now.
Cannot find any definitive news source stating that this deployment on United States soil is in effect. I do find a multitude of sites and blogs repeating the original September, 2008 story. If anyone has an update, please comment and include the source link. Suspending The Posse Comitatus Act would be chilling.
Please click here for an excellent overview of the Act, written February, 2002: The Posse Comitatus Act and Homeland Security. Will find the next reference, for current status and interpretation, enacted by President Bush after 911.
Click here for latest interpretation. From Justia.com. Title 32: National Defense, Part 501 -- Employment of Troops in Aid of Civil Authorities. Complete United States Code (Law) with links.
Thanks for your patience -- Adrianne
