CNN: Administration should use military against militia in Oregon

Referring to the group as domestic terrorists, Kayyem wrote:

Finally, while the presence of federal troops might make the situation more tense than it already is, the Obama administration needs to make a statement with this organization and future domestic terrorists.

Various federal authorities are now in charge, but the administration should be ready to mobilize federal military support should they need it, if only for the long haul. And to make an important point that the rule of law is paramount in a civil, democratic society.

So much for Posse Comitatus and the rule of law.

She tempered her column somewhat by saying that violence “should be avoided at all costs.”  But it’s easy to see where she’s going.

“Do not turn these men into martyrs or heroes by excessive force or unnecessary violence,” she added.  “And, in the process of resolving the standoff, teach them (and others) a lesson or two.”

But, Kurt Nimmo said at Infowars, she got a few things wrong.

Like her definition of “domestic terrorist,” of which, Nimmo said:

Bundy and his compatriots have so far not threatened violence against the government. They have said, however, if the government uses violence they will respond in kind.

Is trespassing terrorism? Is self-defense terrorism? Is trespassing intimidation and coercion?

The militia members,

It seems that Kayyem, along with many others on the left, are itching for a fight and doesn’t seem to care much for the rule of law.  This is, after all, a law enforcement problem and not a military one.

Exit question: Does Kayyem believe that Eric Holder is also a domestic terrorist?  After all, he admitted participating in the the takeover of an abandoned Naval Reserve Officer Training Corps headquarters at Columbia University back in 1970.
