When a subject is killed quickly, there is no information taken. When a government does it, the small group involved in the specific act always represents a faction within the government. The Israeli government would like Israelis to imagine that they are covering Israel's future. 1) Why would a faction within the Israeli government prefer high profile hits of important subjects, carried out by small groups of ideological individuals (who are easily manipulated from Tel Aviv), over the capture of those individuals? 2) Is it because that faction of the Israeli government lacks the operational capability to capture the targets? 3) Is it because if those targets were interrogated properly, the information would eventually lead somewhere that the controlling faction in Israel would find inconvenient? Assassinations can be fun when they are carried out by small groups of non-political individuals with personal agendas, but when a government does them, it is universally problematic.
