The US military has lots and lots of battle plans for every possible situation. I'm sure there are plans that are much more comprehensive, including turning Iran into a glass parking lot. The surgical strike plan is certainly a less destructive one in terms of collateral damage/civilian casualties, but I don't know why they're making a big deal about it. They've probably updated their plans many times since the hostages were taken back before Reagan came in.
