***** [[RuleOfThree Flashing clue:]] CIA is apparently code for, "Do some good, run at the first opportunity, and ClearMyName.

** Discharged because of some bullshit. The Team is, it's pretty clear, not rank and file soldiers or even commandos, more professional volunteers that could operate outside the chain of command and with relative impunity. RuleOfCool and all that.

** Best guess? They're trying to avoid drawing attention too much attention to their very shitty prison techniques. After all, it did take those three driving into the police station to get arrested.

****But it is a movie, and clearly the CIA had a large amount of power in the movie (They call in an airstrike in Western europe to kill the team, which isn't very covert.)

* How did B.A. become a part of the unit after Mexico? He introduces himself as having been dishonorably discharged, and you don't get to reenlist after that.

** The episode occurs in the fictional 'Republic of San Marcos'. As an imaginary nation created by the author it can have whatever legal system the author wants to give it -- such as, oh, not having any extradition treaties with the US.

* Season 1, episode 4: "Pros and Cons." The A-Team infiltrates a Florida prison where the corrupt warden is forcing inmates to fight in gladiatorial combat to the death. How do they infiltrate the prison? The easy way, of course: they get arrested. One problem: how did Murdock, B.A., and Hannibal get through the process of being arrested, booked, tried in court, and sentenced to prison without even one person figuring out who they were and calling the Military Police? I get that the authorities of Strikersville aren't big on proper procedure but still, you'd think at the very least they would have run the team's fingerprints, and the episode "Black Day At Bad Rock" (two episodes later, mind you) showed that the team's fingerprints are on file.

***** Yeah, that's not a valid answer. The CIA really isn't even a third as powerful as movies and TV would like you to believe. John Brennan himself (the current head of the CIA) couldn't get the team cleared without a Presidential order.

** Combat training is about VIOLENCE, and is therefore useless if they are limited to peaceful behavior. Same goes for B.A.'s strength.
