Mossad are not legally allowed to carry out assassinations without the personal authorisation of the PM. The killing of that terrorist would not have taken place without the prior authorisation of Bibi and if he had refused to give the go ahead there would have been no botched assassination and diplomatic fall out. Like in all things you never be certain nothing will go wrong so if your worried about political fallout if it goes wrong the only way you can be sure there will be no problems is if you don't carry out the operation which is not a practical option. In organisations like Mossad who carry out top secret operations which much of the time break international laws like going to assassinate a terrorist in a foreign country or overseeing the nuclear weapons program which Isser Harel is responsible for you don't want committees to oversee things it needs to be on a need to know basis only and the PM is the man who must know.
