  Lilly | In the Crosshairs: Lifting the Ban on Assassination
Properly used, assassination can save lives on both sides of a conflict, and it often serves as the only means of retribution against non-government criminal organizations that resist capture, such as Israel's assassination of the Black September terrorists or the United States' ongoing hunt for Osama bin Laden and the leaders of al Qaeda.
Removing the ban on assassination would also provide officers in the field a choice that they presently do not have: to remove an individual, which is not allowed, or to remove the entire building, which he happens to occupy.
Assassination should be maintained as a military operation in situations where it has a high chance of successfully achieving its goal.

Although she is credited with predicting his assassination because of her 1956 statement, her 1960 one is routinely ignored by those who perpetuate this myth.

 Assassination Tango (2002)   (Site not responding. Last check: )
from Waynesville, OH While watching Assassination Tango -- Robert Duvall's follow-up to his directorial debut, The Apostle --, I was vaguely reminded of this year's similarly themed The Dancer Upstairs (which was also directed by a veteran actor-turned-director -- John Malkovich), in that they both deal with a man-on-a-mission who falls for a dancing instructor.
While The Dancer Upstairs was a dark romance, Assassination Tango is a surprisingly light drama devoid of the required love affair that's been established by its predecessors.
By no means a great film, Assassination Tango is a worthy entry in the resume of a film-maker who clearly knows what he's doing.
