I appears the Federal LEO Assoc. isn't happy

with Obama's statements the other day.
Contrary to what President Obama asserted, all law enforcement officers assigned to Mexico do perform “law enforcement activities.” This may include conducting field interviews, responding to crime scenes, overseeing training and participating in raids. The fact that they don’t actually handcuff suspects doesn’t diminish their role or the risks they face.
And on the 'can't be armed' stuff,
On Friday, FLEOA met with Chairman Michael McCaul’s staff from the House Oversight and Investigations Subcommittee. FLEOA requested that the committee hold hearings in order to demand accountability for why the U.S. government sends unarmed law enforcement officers into hostile, crime-ridden foreign countries. FLEOA also respectfully requested that Congress halt all funding that is used by U.S. agencies to send unarmed law enforcement officers to unstable foreign countries.

They may perform "law enforcement activities" but they are not law enforcement officers as far as the countries they are visiting are concerned. They are tourists, and are being treated just like all the other tourists.

I hope these jokers realize that by asking Congress to defund agencies they are cutting their own paychecks. Not that I have any heartburn over defunding them. It's just that I'm hoping these jokers can add 2+2 and come up somewhere between 3 and 5 most of the time.

stay safe.
