Another very interesting bit from : Rumsfeld Pushes the Envelope With Forces Proposal. The gist is that the emerging Rumsfeld plan is to use Special Forces without host-country permission, a policy rather in the fashion of how the Israelis responded to the Munich Olympics massacre. The article then details how this is likely to cause tensions both between America and our allies and between Defense and the CIA and between the Special Operations Command and the theater warfighting commands. All very interesting.

A thought: could the Europeans be pissed off not so much because we support the Israelis as because we are becoming more and more like them?
