      allegiances are.  I'm responding to the idea and the idea is bunk.  It is a fail.

      It is a proven failure before it has even been tried given the fact that the very body that he proposes select these "adversaries" is the one that is currently advising the Executive  Branch that their activities are within bounds.  

      That body would have no motivation to pick a real adversary to argue against their advice in court.  It is an unworkable - or simply at the very least ineffectual - and profoundly idealistic proposition.
