Bush administration authorizes "kill or capture" of Iran agents

For more than three years now, Iran has been operating a program to supply and train Shiite militias according to one U.S. general. Afraid of escalating the tensions between America and Iran, U.S. forces have secretly been detaining suspected agents from Iran. Now, the Bush administration has finally ordered coalition forces to either "kill or capture" Iranian operatives. The reason for the change in strategy is because of Iran's growing influence in the region and unsuccessful efforts by the U.S. to isolate Tehran. Still, many skeptics believe that the bush administration's new policy could place the U.S. in another war.
