Why is a U.S. Army brigade being assigned to the "Homeland"? by Glenn Greenwald

For more than 100 years -- since the end of the Civil War -- deployment of the U.S. military inside the U.S. has been prohibited under The Posse Comitatus Act (the only exceptions being that the National Guard and Coast Guard are exempted, and use of the military on an emergency ad hoc basis is permitted, such as what happened after Hurricane Katrina). Though there have been some erosion of this prohibition over the last several decades,~~snip~~ the bright line ban on using the U.S. military as a standing law enforcement force inside the U.S. has been more or less honored -- until now.

Grrrr.. Why is that?
