Sounds like they should have just whacked the guy. I really have no problem with the CIA executing vermin outside the US. War is war. If we had approached the entire 'war on terror' this way instead of fighting WWII in Iraq, we'd have it over by now. I think the CIA should whack ever mullah who preaches violence against the US, and I also would have no problem if they planted an occasional car bomb in downtown Tehran once and a while. We should be fair.
Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.
