Aussie journo and blogger mate Reuben Brand, currently in Pakistan, picks up on a story that amuses…and disturbs:

“The Explorers Program” is an affiliate of the Boy Scouts of America, a one time fun, educational program for childern. But learning how to tie knots and earn first aid badges are a thing of the past, as new… millitant training camps are now all the rage. The Explorers Program are training thousands of their young members, some as young as 13 years old, … in counter terrorism tactics and illegal immigrant border control.
