Have you read the PDFs on the N.S.A. Website ?

OneScoup - WTF is this? Are they talking about domestic operations a la NDAA?

Why the fuck did we allow the military to operate domestically again.


It is a training manual for US Army Civil Affairs units.

Authorization for domestic affairs does not come from training manuals.

There are specific criteria under which the military is allowed to operate domestically.

Surprisingly enough, the US isn't the only country in the world with civilians. Operating outside the US, it is occasionally beneficial for the Army to coordinate with civilian authorities in those countries as well as with groups of civilians in their areas of operation. Hence the need for civilian affairs units. Hence the training manuals for civilian affairs units.
