To the Editor:
Should we be comforted that an agent of the C.I.A, and not a contractor fires the hellfire missiles from our drones in Afghanistan? Since he is not a uniformed member of our military, such an agent is an "unlawful combatant". That makes the U.S. a "state sponsor of terrorism". There is enough wrong with this world to keep the employees of our department of Justice busy for several lifetimes. There is no place in their mission for playing soldier.
