Voting is highly emphasized in American culture. Asking questions related to public policy takes a lower priority.

Are newspeople forbidden to ask questions related to Homeland Security funding and performance?

The press release style of news reporting means that a statement is prepared by whatever agency was involved in the latest bust/federal grant money award, etc. Newspeople post this statement without asking any questions.

Our questions appear in bold type.

After squandering DOD credibility for decades in distant lands, a new WWII style uniform look and a pledge to clobber the cartels:

Did General Milley show a lack of confidence in a $51.6 billion US Dept. of Homeland Security and their ability to keep cartel product out of US communities when he made this bold commitment to go after cartels?

Grant Co. designated as High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area, more federal resources now available

This is great news for the citizens of Grant County. The sheriff’s office has achieved this national designation for law enforcement.”

Being recognized as a county with a drug trafficking problem is great news?

What about General Milley’s pledge to clobber the cartels? Is the Dept. of Defense at all relevant in keeping cartel product out of Grant County?


If nothing gets past @CBP’s K9 units, why the need for federal drug war grant money in Kootenai County?

June 4th 2020 KVAL News

US designates Kootenai County part of Idaho/Oregon High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area

“The designation means law enforcement agencies will get federal grant money, and that federal, state, local and tribal police will be better able to coordinate activities and share information.”

Did General Milley show lack of confidence in DEA’s ability to keep cartel product out of US communities when he made his bold pledge two months back?

Will there be less need for federal grant money related to the drug war if General Milley’s plan takes hold?

Will there be less need for a U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration if General Milley’s plan takes hold?

Will High Intensity Drug Trafficking Areas be phased out if General Milley’s plan takes hold?
