An essay is presented on the legal-political basis for the post-9/11 security in the U.S. The long-term result of the post-9/11 is the transformation of the U.S. armed forces into a constabulary designed to occupy unfriendly peoples while their policies attempt to build them into friendly nations. The transformation in the structure and mission of armed forces in the war on terror is to increase their influence in the world.
