And the comparison to Maxwell is still invalid if you assume a "threat to the security of the Federation" is a legal phrasing rather than something that anyone can just throw around, since as far as I know it's never brought up in the episode.
Except, as I already stated, Sisko admits later in the episode that he did not receive approval from Starfleet for his plan to use WMDs against the colony, so his claim that Eddington was a "threat to the security of the Federation" is coming from an obviously biased individual, who would not have the authority to make such a claim in the first place. If Sisko suddenly decided that Dukat was a "threat to the security of the Federation", could he start using WMDs against Cardassian colonies until Dukat surrenders?
