AT LEAST THEY PUT PAID...:

In Dubai attack, signs of Mossad shadow war (MATTI FRIEDMAN , 02.18.10, AP)

Israel's Mossad spy agency - the prime suspect in the death of Mahmoud al-Mabhouh last month in Dubai - has known both triumph and embarrassment in decades of covert warfare, and the latest episode would appear to include elements of each.

The killers, whoever they are, got their man and escaped. But they were caught on video and left behind what appears to be significant evidence: A Dubai police force that proved competent perhaps beyond the agents' expectations found that at least seven of them used the names of real Israelis with European passports.


...to all that nonsense about it being especially appalling to fight a war in civilian garb.
