"Scouts Train to Fight Terrorists, and More", NYT, 14 May 2009.

Excerpt:
Quote :
The Explorers program, a coeducational affiliate of the Boy Scouts of America that began 60 years ago, is training thousands of young people in skills used to confront terrorism, illegal immigration and escalating border violence — an intense ratcheting up of one of the group’s longtime missions to prepare youths for more traditional jobs as police officers and firefighters.

“This is about being a true-blooded American guy and girl,” said A. J. Lowenthal, a sheriff’s deputy here in Imperial County, whose life clock, he says, is set around the Explorers events he helps run. “It fits right in with the honor and bravery of the Boy Scouts.”

Where was this when I was a kid? If I was allowed to play with firearms I might have joined the scouts.

So I wonder what happens if as a group of islamic scouts tried to join??? lol!

I just noticed this post now. WTF? However, I always felt that the American Scouts that I met at Jamborees had a "paramilitary" aspect to them, especially their uniforms. This reminds me somewhat of the Nazi Youth organizations in Germany pre-WWII. Indoctrinate the kids when they're small and by the time they're old enough to question things, they won't.
