What you're suggesting requires balls. Reason given: "Oh, the liberals / foreign press will be in arms!" My question: So? We compromise our national security and tolerate traitors based on some potential criticism (which keeps coming anyway) by some media outlets and activists?! Insanity. BTW, the same arguments of a huge blowback was used for years when it came to dealing with LeJ --- finally, the entire leadership was wiped out in one operation. There was an unfortunate retaliatory suicide bombing targeting the Home Minister (could have been prevented with better security) but no mass uprising or unrest. When the State shows an iron hand backed by superior narrative/psy ops work, people fall in line very quickly. We need to start acting like it!
