    I'd love your interpretation of the military documents above.

    It's difficult to be happy knowing so many suffer. We must unite.

    •  Honestly, it's disturbing as hell. (0+ / 0-)

      I especially find the Civilian Inmate Labor program to be horrifying, especially considering that one of the first priorities stipulated is the handling of media affairs.  Shows exactly how much public disapproval the author knew there would be.  

      Overall, there's a lot of buck passing in these documents.  It seems to me that whoever was the author of these plans wanted as much deniability as possible.  Lots of the language is couched in terms like "Supporting local departments" and "Provided needed assistance."  

      Overall, to me these documents give a lot of general power and authority, while not really specifying what said power is going to be used for.  In my personal experience (And admittedly, this is only with Enlisted) that leads to a lot of potential for abuse of the granted power.

      One of these days, I'm gonna learn that I'm only really good at convincing people when I'm being a wiseass.
