Bush Praetorian Guard for Mexico’s Consulates?
By Juan Mann
It’s hard to top VDARE.COM’s syndicated columnist Paul Craig Roberts in the doom-and-gloom department . . . especially the cold slap-in-the-face of reality delivered in his January 23 column Unfathomed Dangers in Patriot Act Reauthorization, in which he broke the story about "a provision in the "Patriot Act" [that] creates a new federal police force with power to violate the Bill of Rights."
But, amazingly enough, there’s even more to the Department of Homeland Security’s new uniformed division of United States Secret Service police…which is indeed proposed in Section 605 (and 3056A) of the Patriot Act [PDF] reauthorization.
Brace yourself. This DHS/USSS Praetorian Guard also doubles as…a security force for foreign consulates on American soil.
