  2. Remove Congress...

You leave out a third, very important one: challenging the bill in court, on grounds that it is unconstitutional:


"I have no doubt that this is headed for the Supreme Court. Once again, the administration has overreached, and that makes it more likely that the court will strike it down," Stanford University law professor Jenny Martinez said.

...

"I believe that the court will conclude that the habeas-stripping provision is unconstitutional,'' said Eugene R. Fidell, a Washington attorney and military law expert who is president of the National Institute of Military Justice.

...

"Just because Congress puts a stamp of approval on something, it does not necessarily mean it will pass constitutional muster before the Supreme Court,'' said Scott Silliman, a Duke University law professor and executive director at its Center on Law Ethics and National Security.

Yes, the court is "stacked", but given such opinions of legal experts, I would still not put it past them to make the right call regarding this bill.

Truth unfolds in time through a communal process.
