I am not so sure it would constitute a violation of the posse comitatus act. There are many who have an opinion about what it should be doing, yet,
fail to understand both the history as well as current application in the context of a country that is in a perpetual state of war.
This being said, USC contains many provisions for the President, the secretary of Defense, secretary of the Treasury and other hotshots to take action
on what they unilaterally perceive to be a violation and can contract or order the services of the Army, Navy and Airforce, without violating the
posse comitatus act.
For instance, in case of export of weapons exiting the US, the president can act and the Army, Navy, Airforce becomes service provider. Director of
the Secret Service may request assistance from
the Department of Defense and other federal agencies to protect the President. Attorney General may request assistance from the Secretary of
Defense for enforcement of the proscriptions against criminal transactions in nuclear materials. President may use the militia and
armed forces to
suppress insurrection and enforce federal authority in the face of rebellion or other forms of domestic violence, just to name a few
On top, one also have to consider that CIA land is not private property or state property, but federal property. And then I am not so sure that a call
upon the posse comitatus act is a slam dunk.
Please, note, that I am not saying that the report of landed Marines in Langley has any truth to it. What I am saying is that under scrutiny, you will
find that your Federal Government has all the tools at it's disposal to act. Just food for thought.
