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.

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.
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.
