Just this once, I wish Islamic terrorists had succeeded

Target: Jimmy Carter. Supposedly. It could just be an attempt by Hamas to look like "good guys" to the ignorant.
"Nobody in Gaza will touch this man [Carter]," Hamas adviser Ahmed Yousef said. "He is on a noble mission. Everyone here respects him."
That there speaks volumes.

But like the exchange in "A Few Good Men" where Kaffee asked Jessup why the transfer was necessary if he'd given an order, if nobody in Gaza would touch Carter, then where did the bomb come from?

There was one thing in that exchange in A Few Good Men that always irked me...

I'm going to paraphrase here because they don't have these quotes listed on imdb.com

Caffrey: "And your orders are always followed?"
Jessup: "Orders are followed or people die."

Uhh -- a guy died, that's why there's a trial in the first place... It just always seemed like a logical escape hatch. Orders are followed or people die. Someone died. Therefore, you don't have to prove that there was an order, because a logically consistent position would be that Santiago died because someone didn't follow orders.

Off-topic, I know, but it's always bothered me.
