The answer in the Obama era is: they can’t.
Just a correction here, but, all this hit squad nonsense started with the conspicuously convenient Patriot Act that just so happened to have been quite thoroughly already ready to go for some signing into law by over-eager lawmakers responding to the emotional pressure of, hmmmm, some certain big horrible event.
I wonder which President was in office then? hmmm?
Thing is, though, it's not about him, or the guy after him, or any other POTUS.
It's the whole machine that allowed it to happen to begin with.
I mean, it's not like USA is a motorcycle that's only driven/piloted by a single person.
There's an entire governing body.
The current POTUS inherited the powers signed off on and created by the previous.
The next POTUS, whoever he or she is, will use and abuse the same powers until such time as We The People lawfully take those powers so easily abused away.
This "hit squad" did not start with the Patriot act or Bush. It started many admins previous to this and has nothing to do with the Patriot act, Bush, or Obama. The "hit squad nonsense" is not in the hands of the President. Stop trying to bring Bush into EVERYTHING.. its getting old. Its not one man or one administration...and you should know this by now.
I thought it was against the TOS to post a posting, or a thread that calls for the assassination of anyone.
