Does the Military Have a Contingency Plan for an Anti-American President?
My question, it wouldn’t matter who the president was at the time. This is just my passionately curious mind. We’ve been told — and we know it — that in the Pentagon, the various branches of the military, everywhere, there are contingency plans. If something blows up in the Philippines, something blows up in Australia, we’ve got contingency plans, we’ve got people that plan reactions, there are war planners during Iraq, all those things got leaked if you’ll recall to the New York Times and the Washington Post. I’m just wondering, it’s a tough question, but it’s a legitimate one, the president, the commander-in-chief gives everybody their orders, ultimately. But is there a contingency plan for — I don’t want to say an anti-American president, ’cause that’s gonna cloud my real intent here.
I’m just wondering. Obviously she doesn’t know of one, but is there a contingency plan for dealing with somebody who ends up in the White House who is not of the belief that the United States is the solution to problems? Is there a contingency plan to deal with a president who is of the belief that the United States is the problem? Is there a contingency plan to deal with a president who doesn’t care about anything and doesn’t do anything? Is there a contingency plan to deal with things that happen domestically from the administration in addition to contingency plans for what our enemies might do popping up around the world. It’s just a question. Just asking from my passionately curious, fertile mind.
