It's true! In those scary scary days right after 911 -- when kids were learning new uncool words like Al Qaeda, Anthrax, Sniper, WMD and Taleban, Great Satan's spy guys were gearing up to put the vent into unconventional warfare.
Targetting al qaeda cats and hopefully super villan OBL himself with two shots in the head -- each.
This is significant. Cats along side the cat at the center of the storm -- then CIA chief Geo Tenet -- dreamed up plans to insert righteous payback in the form of Great Satan's trained killers right in the face of the enemy -- literally.
"Officials at the spy agency over the years ran into myriad logistical, legal and diplomatic obstacles. How could the role of the United States be masked?
"Should allies be informed and might they block the access of the C.I.A. teams to their targets? What if American officers or their foreign surrogates were caught in the midst of an operation?
"Would such activities violate international law or American restrictions on assassinations overseas?
Godfather style hits -- where some creep's brains may get splattered "...all over your nice Ivy League suit..." are in fact way more “surgical” surgically solution wise in eliminating terrorists than missile strikes with armed Predator drones, against creeps deploying innocent, intelligent human shielding that alas -- occasionly resulted in dozens of civilian casualties.
Actually -- seems that drones gone wild -- sweetly and concurrently under way are the spiritual relatives of hit teams that allow their enemys to actually see them and realize in the last seconds of a hateful wasted life that certain activities are like magnets for certain reactive activites.
Though the plan was never carried out -- tons of legit and stupid concerns like those noted above -- the leaking of such ideas -- never totally taken off the shelf -- serves to remind friends and enemies alike that when Great Satan gets riled up -- she is kinda crazy and unpredictable.
