IS ASSASSINATION REALLY THE RIGHT WORD?

In a war as diffuse and spread out as the current war on terrorism is there really such a thing as an assassination? When there’s no defined fronts what exactly is the difference between an assassination and killed in action? When soldiers aimed at officers in WWII it wasn’t assassination it was disrupting enemy operations. As long as their “generals” don’t come within 10,000 miles of the battle field I see no problem with taking the battle field to them.
