  •  at least Bin Laden admitted his guilt (0+ / 0-)

    was proud of it, in fact.

    not that I wouldn't have rather put him on trial than shoot him.  Or maybe, put him on trial, and then, hopefully, shoot him.

    •  Do you think that all of the connections (0+ / 0-)

      between this guy and (a) AQ and (b) at least four different terror plots targeting Americans are perfectly innocent?

      •  I think all he did was (3+ / 0-)

        1)hang out with rotten people and 2)talk a bunch of violent trash.

        Both of which are deplorable, neither criminal, and certainly neither warranting summary assassination.

          How do you suppose it is that his emails wound up in the emails of the underwear bomber, the Fort Hood Shooter, and the Times Square Bomber in the months before they launched their respective terrorist operations?

          He was also tied by multiple intelligence agencies to the Cargo Planes bomb plot?

          That's a lot of smoke for there to be no fire.

          Especially considering that he has a history of recruiting young men into waging violent global jihad going back to his time in Denver.

          I think your view is easily disprovable but at least you're out there with it.

          •  Rich, I'm always out there with it. (0+ / 0-)

            I think everybody on this site knows that by now, either to their pleasure or displeasure--or indifference.
