It may have looked like they were ready for war or some deranged person looking for his late Social Security benefits.
It was Federal Protective Service officers with the U.S. Department of Homeland Security with high powered rifles checking ID's, and security in general, at a Social Security Office in Leesburg, Florida.
Other officers, some with K-9s, sifted through the building.
Officers on the scene would not speak to the press and by noon they were gone.
They claimed they were conducting a random training operation early Tuesday morning when they surprisingly showed up at the Social Security Administration office in downtown Leesburg.
Training exercises this intense with semiautomatic weapons and dogs have always been conducted in abandoned buildings rather than in downtown Leesburg against innocent civilians!
Is this a preview of the private police force Obama promised during his presidential campaign?
This video shows Obama calling for a Gestapo.
