WASHINGTON – The Bush administration in 2002 considered sending U.S. troops into a Buffalo, N.Y., suburb to arrest a group of terror suspects in what would have been a nearly unprecedented use of military power, The New York Times reported.

Dispatching troops into the streets is virtually unheard of. The Constitution and various laws restrict the military from being used to conduct domestic raids and seize property.

Scott L. Silliman, a Duke University law professor specializing in national security law, told the Times that a U.S. president had not deployed the active-duty military on

I wonder why it has taken so long to come out and what does it mean for the future? Lets see what kind of reaction this makes...

The proposal advanced to at least one-high level administration meeting, before President George W. Bush decided against it.


So, you're point is?

Still hate bush?

Well of course you do, but he stopped an atrocity, in you're eyes. This is to all posters.

So what's the problem.

And he decided against it, in perhaps the most dramatic civil defense climate since Pearl Harbor. That context should not be dismissed. But I fear you're preaching to deaf ears. Even the wording of this thread is misleading. Bush was given advice for and against the move by his subordinates, on their own accord. The mere fact that he had to decide no, presumably constitutes "considering".

Alright. Let's not get too excited about something that didn't happen. Now,worry that this COULD happen now. Was Bush a demon? Maybe. Is Obama a demon? Maybe. Bush is gone. Obama is here now. Heh. In my opinion he is Bush-Heavy. Not Bush-lite. Just saying................

Not only did he decide against it and said no, but as the article says several of Bush' administration officials also adviced against doing that, including Condoleezza Rice.

Some in the Bush administration recommended the use of miltiary, and others recommended against it, and to instead send in the FBI like they usually do, and Bush said no.

BTW, here is the part about who was in favor of military use, and who was against it.


Among those arguing for the military use besides Cheney were his legal adviser David S. Addington and some senior Defense Department officials, the Times reported.

Opposing the idea were Condoleezza Rice, then the national security adviser; John B. Bellinger III, the top lawyer at the National Security Council; FBI Director Robert S. Mueller III; and Michael Chertoff, then the head of the Justice Department's criminal division.

Bush ultimately nixed the proposal and ordered the FBI to make the arrests in Lackawanna. The men were subsequently arrested and pleaded guilty to terrorism-related charges.
