Where was there any debate? 'Operation Vengeance' was planned and executed within 4 days of the intelligence intercept regarding Yamamoto's trip. There was no time for debate even if anyone had felt the need.When the opportunity arose to kill Yamamoto part of the debate centered on the legality of assassination, was such an attack an assassination or was it a legitimate act of war, etc? They went ahead with it and got him.
