Scary: Army seeks input from RAND on national police force

And RAND Corporation thinks it's just a brilliant idea, it would be a dual purpose organization, acting as a foreign policing force in nationbuilding operations, but maintaining this sort of force would only be cost effective if they served as a national domestic police force too.  And look at this little bonus,

In particular, for the MP option to be as cost-effective as possible, relief from the Posse Comitatus Act [which forbids the US Army from being used in law enforcement in the United States] would be required to permit its members to perform domestic law enforcement functions.

...anyone else as horrified by this as I am? 

We're so screwed.
