Orwell's Federal Troops: More Fun With Google

That was then:

Your search - "Federal Troops" - did not match any articles between 1 Aug 2005 and 28 Aug 2005.

This is now:

Results 1 - 10 of about 518,000 for "Federal Troops". (0.30 seconds)

Driving back from Buffalo yesterday, I listened to ABC news coverage of Hurricaine Rita. Every time they spoke of the military being involved, they used the term "Federal Troops".

Correct me if I'm wrong, but this term hasn't been used in the mainstream media coverage of any storm relief effort prior to Katrina.

Cached Google searches focusing on news reports prior to Aug. 15th record no search results referring to "federal troops" in any other context than Civil War re-enactments.

While the term is technically corrrect--national guardsmen, coast guardians, army troops, etc. are all federal troops--why has it suddenly become en vogue?
