We’re all scared of what a Donald Trump presidency might look like. When former NSA and CIA Director Michael Hayden joins the ranks and starts speculating what could actually happen, we should all take notice. Like some of the so-scary-it’s-funny possibilities, Hayden shook some people up by boldly declaring if President Trump were to order the military to actually carry out some of his most appalling policies, “the American armed forces would refuse to act.” It’s comforting to know that military chiefs have so much respect for the Geneva Conventions that they wouldn’t allow Trump to bring back “a hell of a lot worse than waterboarding” or wouldn’t listen to him if he insisted that “when you get these terrorists, you have to take out their families.” It is comforting…until our short term memory kicks back in and we remember Abu Ghraib, waterboarding in the first place, and other U.S. military actions that were less than international law abiding.
