This may turn out to be one of the scariest developments yet in President Obama's stated intention to develop and deploy a "civilian national security force." (WHAT does THAT even mean????)
A mysterious group, American Police Force has apparently been present in Hardin, Montana since late 2008. Little is known about the organization. At a recent press conference, an APF spokesperson declined to name the parent company or reveal their source(s) of funding. AFP's web site, http://www.americanpolicegroup.com/, was live until Tuesday, September 29. It was offline for a few hours on September 28-29, and then re-appeared.
Two Rivers Detention Center, a modest-sized facility in Hardin, was offered by the county government as a possible site for relocating terrorist detainees from Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. But news reports seem to indicate that the federal government has decided not to locate detainees there.
