Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God. Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God.

Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in heaven; for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you.

To suggest that 18 years later this authorization could justify killing an Iranian official stretches the law far beyond anything Congress ever intended.
