    In the middle of a high level raid, Seals expected to be not only shot at but were on alert and looking for explosive devices within the compound, do not play around when attempting to take someone in custody. Either you comply or you become dead, they aren't a police department.

    You?

    I agree with the others who have tagged this as purely a kill mission, which I fully support.

    Does anyone else think of the Mossad systematically hunting down the Olympic terrorists when they think of this incredible mission?

    No, I don't believe we put a team together to hunt down and kill. We brought many of them alive to GITMO. We also formely filed charges against Ben Laden if Federal Court years ago.

    The Israeli's also kidnapped Eichman from Argentina and put him on trial.

    Is it presented in a way that says "don't **** with us?" or that says "We stumbled onto success after waffling over it for days/weeks"? Big difference and may yield different results down the road.
    (a) "don't **** with us"
    breached the compound, stormed the room, put 2 bullets in his head.
