Obama Calls for Pentagon “Civilian Component”

Once again, Obama has called for a civilian component to work with the Pentagon.

Speaking at a town hall event in Racine, Wisconsin, on July 31 Obama said U.S. troops are carrying too much of the burden in Iraq and Afghanistan and doing too many things that are more appropriate for civilians, such as building schools and setting up justice systems, according to the Associated Press. He called for a civilian component as large as the military.

“We just got to be smart about using all the elements of American power, not just one element of American power,” he said. “The problem is — is that we don’t have a civilian effort that has always matched up to the military effort.  So the military  goes in there, they clear out everything, they’re — they’re making  everything secure, and now the question is, all right, can we get the  civilians to come in to work with the local governments to improve the  situation?  And a lot of times that civilian side of it has been under-resourced.”
On the campaign trail in 2008, Obama called for a civilian national security force double the size of the Peace Corps and nearly quadruple the size of AmeriCorps and the size of the nation’s military. “We cannot continue to rely on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives we’ve set. We’ve got to have a civilian national security force that’s just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded,” Obama said in Colorado Springs on July 2, 2008.
