I've been trying to imagine what I could write in response to Newsweek's story "The Salvador Option" ("The Pentagon may put Special-Forces-led assassination or kidnapping teams in Iraq") -- but I don't think there's anything I could add to Billmon's two new posts on the subject, which explain exactly what's being considered. Main Billmon link: here. Direct link to posts: here and here. Warning: Some of this is grisly.
Good to have Billmon back -- we need him more than ever.
