Every day, in every way, we're just more about the killing, aren't we?

The military is placing small teams of Special Operations troops in a growing number of American embassies to gather intelligence on terrorists in unstable parts of the world and to prepare for potential missions to disrupt, capture or kill them.

I'm betting our diplomats are thrilled that our embassies to be used as staging grounds for death squads "special forces."

(I don't know if they're more, or less, thrilled than they were to find out these guys were there and they didn't know it. And, you know, kudos to the Bush Administration for that little clue about their opinion of diplomacy.)

The Special Operations command reports to Mr. Rumsfeld, and falls outside the orbit controlled by John D. Negroponte, the newly established director of national intelligence, who oversees all the nation's intelligence agencies.

Rumself has his own little sekrit army? Color me not thrilled.
