    I have not said one thing about the actual killing of a man who was an enemy of Israel. He did what he did and died for it. Fair enough. No criticism of the hit at all. What I have criticized is that the cost/benefit of the operation was an immense harm to Israel in exchange for very little. Those who were eagerly denying any Israeli involvement now are reduced to accusing anyone who questions the operation of being pro-Hamas and hypocritical. My initial take was that the operation was so badly bungled that it might well have been a false flag operation intended to implicate Israel. As details emerged it became clear it was just a fiasco. How many of you notice that Sultan Abu al-Aynayn had been recalled from Lebanon? How many read of his denial that security had anything to do with it, that he was coming home for 'family reasons.? How many know who Sultan Abu al-Aynayn is and what he had been doing in Lebanon? Why? Pay attention folks. And forget the rabid denial syndrome.
