For some reason this reminds me of the time back in 90s when we got word that the ATF was planning a dynamic raid on some very nasty local Kluxers. Now we didn't like or agree with them (to put it mildly), nor did they appreciate us, but as near as we could determine they didn't deserve extra-judicial execution at the hands of Waco Jim Cavanaugh's ninja cowboys. (Waco Jim ran the Birmingham office of ATF at the time, a job he got in reward for his perjury at the Waco hearings.)
Still, we were talking about what to do and none of us was particularly enthusiastic about coming to the defense of the Klan. Finally, one of the fellows in the back of the room held up his hand and said, "I know what we can do." He paused for dramatic effect. "Let's just show up five minutes late and avenge their deaths."
The room broke up, as did I.
NOTE: The previously posted comment by COL Robert "Mad Bob" REDACTED on this subject has been redacted as a joke in poor taste. I am on record as insisting that the persons of the current and former presidents of the United States should be protected, at least until after any future war crimes trials may decide differently. ;-)
