Killing Terrorists

If in the process of apprehending a terrorist, he is killed, everything he knows about the activities of other terrorists dies with him. In the grand scheme of things, this information is probably far more important than that single terrorist. However, there is a testosterone-cowboy lynch-em mentality in the military and the police that does’nt seem to understand this. Lately, more often than not, they botch the job and kill the suspect. Perhaps they should take a page from people who manage to capture bears, elephants, tigers and poisonous snakes.
