Hit Squads

The following was recently published in Newsweek and has the liberals all a twitter:

Following that model, one Pentagon proposal would send Special Forces teams to advise, support and possibly train Iraqi squads, most likely hand-picked Kurdish Peshmerga fighters and Shiite militiamen, to target Sunni insurgents and their sympathizers, even across the border into Syria, according to military insiders familiar with the discussions. It remains unclear, however, whether this would be a policy of assassination or so-called "snatch" operations, in which the targets are sent to secret facilities for interrogation. The current thinking is that while U.S. Special Forces would lead operations in, say, Syria, activities inside Iraq itself would be carried out by Iraqi paramilitaries, officials tell NEWSWEEK.

While others are debating whether or not we should pursue this war against terrorists in this fashion, I am sitting here upset that we don't have such squads already in place. Our enemies need to go to bed at night with some real question as to whether or not they will wake up come morning.
