I understand that the other characters in the squad have a relatively controllable personality or at least possess a useful ability that make them an asset worth the trouble of containing them.
Deadshot: relatively stable and an amazing marksman
Captain Boomerang: world-class thief and at least capable of mid-range combat
Killer Croc: uncontrollable but is built like a tank and can breathe underwater
Diablo: Non-violent and hosting a demi-god
June Moone: Also contains a demi-god and is perfectly stable when she's in proper control of her powers
Slipknot (technically): Can climb really fast and is a good extra to kill off to increase tension
The problem is that Harley seems to be outclassed and more uncontrollable than any of them. She's not superpowered, she's (in Amanda Waller's own words) more psychotic than The Joker, she doesn't have any real combat abilities, and at best she's got a decent batting arm and six bullets in a standard revolver.
Why was it so important that Harley be included in the mission?
