You're absolutely right that they've done worse, but does that warrant our "I had Subway for lunch" defenses to protect our actions? The US isn't in control of those terrorists. We ARE in control of our troops. An eye for an eye may be fair, but it doesn't work within a democracy, and especially with the whole world breathing down our backs.
