Don’t get me wrong — obviously Biden will do it, and obviously the judges on that panel will give him permission to do it. What I’m asking is if Seal Team 6 is the best team of trained paramilitary operatives to carry out the mission.
This week, while arguing before a three-judge panel of a federal appeals court, lawyers for former President and current indicted co-conspirator Donald J. Trump conceded that his legal theories would give President Joe Biden the legal leeway to order a hit on his political rivals. During the hearing, Trump’s lawyer’s agreed with a skeptically posited hypothetical from one of the judges that his client’s argument would effectively give any president the right to use Seal Team 6 to take out their political opponents, and unless that president was impeached and removed first, there would be no legal recourse.
Because every good, clean, ammo hoarding, Mayonnaise-tinted, red meat eating American Christofascist, southern plantation loving patriot knows that former President Trump only hires the best people with the best minds, we simply have to take for granted that the judges will side with his team. So, once they do, and once it becomes legal for a sitting president to order the murder of anyone he wants to, for any reason at all, it will probably only be a matter of time before Generalissimo Biden tells Seal Team 6 to take out Donald Trump.
…but should he?
Don’t get me wrong — obviously Biden will do it, and obviously the judges on that panel will give him permission to do it. What I’m asking is if Seal Team 6 is the best team of trained paramilitary operatives to carry out the mission. Or, if perhaps, there’s a better team to do it.
For example, there’s a crack commando unit that, in 1972, was sent to prison by a military court for a crime they didn’t commit. Today, still wanted by the government they survive as soldiers of fortune. Over the years, it’s become a well-known fact around D.C. that if you have a problem, if no one else can help, and if you can find them….maybe you can hire The A-Team, and they’ll solve that problem.
I can personally speak for the efficiency, professionalism, and frankly downright entertaining way in which the A-Team does their business (and does it in a kick-ass van, by the way!). I’ve watched hours and hours of footage that show them performing their duties, and getting people out of jams left and right. I would think that President Biden would at least want to hold a call with the A-Team to assess whether they should be engaged in the totally legal Biden order to assassinate his political rival, or not.
So what the president will have to decide is whether he trusts Seal Team 6, or the A-Team to carry out his hit on Donald Trump. We know that the judges will side with Biden, because Trump’s lawyers, like Trump’s steaks, Trump’s bottled water, Trump’s university’s degrees, and Trump’s casinos, are only the best, run by the best, for the best. It’s just a matter of who Biden will entrust with such a vital mission.
Then again…maybe Biden can just avoid all the controversy and order up a drone strike on Mar-a-Lago. Only time will tell.
