Abstract : Among the countermeasures that the United States might employ against terrorists, why not assassination? Do we deny ourselves an effective instrument simply because terrorists do not fit neatly into our traditional methods of law enforcement or waging war? This essay examines the arguments for and against assassination as a means of combatting terrorism.
