i've been weeding through some of these threads and have not found what i'm looking for.
please just link me to the relevant thread if this has already been covered.

seriously though, should an effort been taken to capture him alive?
just think of the info that could have been extracted.
finances, weapons stashes, future plans etc..........
seems to me it was quite foolish to kill him.

Because he is a muslim engaged in violent Jihad against the United States of America. His Jihad has resulted in the occupation and functional ownership of huge swaths of muslim lands by America. There is simply no way to hide from the all seeing eye of the US Military.

Gitmo is not a place, it is a command.

If you were on a Special Operations team and you were told to kill Osama bin Laden, you would do it. Trust me, its better he's dead than alive. I'm doubtful he would release information anyways.

I thought I saw/heard he was armed and fired at US troops...

OBL dead is a martyr but OBL alive is a prisoner to be freed at any cost. If Al Quaeda threatened to explode a nuclear bomb in the heart of New York if OBL is not freed - what would you do?

That is not to say that Al Quaeda and other terrorist organizations will not take action in revenge but the rest of the world cannot be held hostage to a dead man.

I've just posted something similar on another thread. The US have (supposedly) had his underlings in guantanamo for years but they don't want to question the 'master-mind'?

Are we supposed to believe that killing Bin Laden makes Al-quaeda disappear?

Then why was Saddam captured and not killed immediately?

Considering that Bin Laden could bring down the American government with what he knew about 9/11, then it's quite obvious why killing him (if this death really happened which I doubt) was their preferred option.

Because it was an assassination.

An assassination squad.

Period.

(This does now, however, address the fact whether it really was him/really did happen, or if he has been dead for years. If it wasn't him/if it didn't happen that also equally explains why they so quickly and conveniently disposed of the "body/evidence." 'Cause they had none.

Keep in mind, he is the world's most wanted man.
The longer they kept him captive the more chance he had to escape, even if he would be kept under lock and a close eye. The thing they would benefit from is answers... If they were lucky enough to get any.
He would've died either way in the end so in my opinion, it wouldn't really matter when he died or how. There'd also be more controversy on where they'd keep him, what they'd do with him, how they'd kill him, etcetera.
Overall, I think that they killed him right then and there because they almost 'flinched'. If you came into contact with the world's most wanted with a gun in your hand, what would you do? I'd shoot.

After watching how all of this is unfolding, I am absolutely convinced that OBL was not killed in the raid. Unfortunately, he absolutely can not be taken alive due to legal issues. We would love nothing more than to take him alive so we can get at all that juicy intel in his head. All of this creates a big problem.....

until..........

we dump a body overboard. Say that the DNA matched. Create the supporting video and photos (still in the works). And wisk OBL off to an undisclosed location where he will spend the rest of his short life in unbelievable pain.

It is intelligent to take prisoners only when you think they have specific valuable intelligence and there are no adverse effects in holding them captive. Otherwise they die where you find them; armed, unarmed, whatever. Counterterrorism is no place for Mohandas Effing Ghandi.

I was under belief that the order to kill came from Obama

I was also led to believe that Osama hid behind someone, was it his wife?

Just can't believe it's justified to go in and kill someone like that, whether armed or not all action should be taken to bring a wanted man in alive before dead.

according to AJ
apparently the gov is now saying he didn't use his wife as a shield
he didn't fight back
so all those that said he deserved to die for that where are they now
I lied 15 time but I'm telling you the truth now?

and he figures that the'll use a madam toussaud wax dummy
or a John Candy finshed the movie after he died computer generated
Obama birth certificate style osama video

like the ones faked admittedly in the NY times by the CIA
or like the bruckhiemer jessica lynch story...etc

when the correct there own lies to keep the narrative alive and use irresolvable opposite controvercies those ae synptoms of MIND CONTROL

oh well, the US is slated to lose WW3 just ask all the armegeddon christians...
in the uS
just in time for harmonization with Canada

spoken like a true amature who has never served. It's simple why he was killed and not captured. Dead men don't talk. If they wanted him alive he would have been taken alive, unless he did himself in.

pheeww, now there's an ifo overload in a short period of time.

as fas as holding him, i'd think a 'supermax' like the one in florence, colorado would be much better than a place like gitmo.

He can't go to gitmo or any regular prison where he might be recognized. He is in a very remote secure safe house somewhere.

If this happened as they say:
They should have not killed him, they should have imprisoned him and told no one, they should have asked the locations of the supposed nukes that Alqaeda is waiting to explode all over the world, using their "interrogation" techniques, they should have extracted all the information they could extract. They have done it before, they are doing it now.
Wouldn't that be the smart thing to do?
If this was all real, would you have risked you life to make sure that he came out of there alive and millions of lives would have been saved? I would, and if I was in charge of the operation I would have ordered to take him alive and do their thing in silence after.
It all seems to convenient, maybe it was Pope John Paul the 2nd's last miracle.

wouldn't surprise me one bit.
with all the lies flung around for so many years by my government, sometimes i really wonder how people can believe anything we are told without absolute proof of some sort.
