The Bush administration has authorized the U.S. military to kill or capture Iranian operatives inside Iraq as part of an aggressive new strategy to weaken Tehran's influence across the Middle East and compel it to give up its nuclear program, according to government and counterterrorism officials with direct knowledge of the effort.

For more than a year, U.S. forces in Iraq have secretly detained dozens of suspected Iranian agents, holding them for three to four days at a time.

Catch and Release? You would think they are fishing!

Here we are worried about escalating tensions with a country that is a sworn enemy of the United States. maybe they would think twice about meddling if they have their agents sent back in body bags.

If anybody, in anyway, shoots, or tries to harm one of our soldiers or Marines, our troops should be allowed to fire back at will with the use of every weapon at their disposal.
