    Obama Orders Review Of Transfers Of Military Surplus To Local Police

    Relax, the big O got this

    http://www.npr.org/blogs/thetwo-way/...o-local-police

    President Obama has ordered a review of federal programs that supply local law enforcement agencies with military weapons and equipment after concerns over how the police handled unrest in Ferguson, Mo., in the aftermath of the shooting death of Michael Brown.

    A senior Obama administration official says the president "whether state and local law enforcement are provided with the necessary training and guidance; and whether the federal government is sufficiently auditing the use of equipment obtained through federal programs and funding."

    The official also says the review would include input from the Domestic Policy Council, the National Security Council, the Office of Management and Budget, as well as the departments of Defense, Justice, Homeland Security and Treasury.

    What was the original stated purpose of the surplus war machine program ? Anti terrorism? Silly idea really, tanks aren't really effective against hit and run bombers

    This is what we should be debating- rather than unknowns about an incident with an unclear fact pattern. But I guess it is harder to inject race into it.

    You're assuming he's actually going to do something between games of golf.

    More likely, another meaningless PR exercise.
