WND Can't Stop Lying About Obama's 'Civilian National Security Force'
Topic: WorldNetDaily

A March 19 WorldNetDaily article by Bob Unruh on a possible new "volunteer corps" rehashes WND's previous lies about President Obama's statements regarding a "national civilian security force":

Many, however, are raising concerns that the program, which is intended to include 250,000 "volunteers," is the beginning of what President Obama called his "National Civilian Security Force" in a a speech last year in which he urged creating an organization as big and well-funded as the U.S. military. He has declined since then to elaborate.

That is an utter and complete lie. As we've detailed, Obama has, in fact elaborated: he wants to expand the State Department's foreign service, as well as AmeriCorps and the Peace Corps.

Unruh goes on to claim that WND editor Joseph Farah "used his daily column first to raise the issue and then to elevate it with a call to all reporters to start asking questions." Either Farah and Unruh are lazy, or they're willfully ignorant. This information is easily available, yet they can't or won't look for it.

It's easier to smear than to tell the truth, it seems. But we already knew that.
