Nice. File this under "Even Paranoids Have Real Enemies." And they wonder why folks are getting so paranoid about this administration's intentions.

Harry Boland: What does the minister think?
Michael Collins: Which minister?
Boland: We're the only two left.
Collins: I'm changing your brief. I hereby appoint you minister for general mayhem.
Boland: What's your brief?
Collins: The same. Plus one other portfolio. Jailbreaks.
-- Michael Collins, 1996.
New York Army National Guard Soldiers hone detainee operations skills at Fort Drum.

So, why does the National Guard need detention/detainee training? Aren't they supposed to protect us from that sort of thing?

102nd Military Police. They handle enemy prisoners during wartime. Not that far fetched.

Better to train at Fort Drum than 135 miles to the northeast at Clinton Correctional Facility, where security has been found to be, dare we say, more "porous".
