I'm not an Obama hater (rare these days, I know), nor am I a staunch supporter, but I seem to remember either an interview or some kind of press
statement he made over a year ago where he basically said, "...we're going to find him, and we're going to kill him." Meaning Osama Bin Ladin.
No mention of capture. No thought for intelligence he may have. Kill him. I wish I could find the clip. No mention of a trial.
Regardless of involvement in any terrorist activity in which he (OBL) may - or may not - have had any involvement, he had been tried, found guilty,
and sentenced to death. By whom? If that had been any American and another nation had said/done that, there would be riots. Everyone deserves a fair
trial regardless of the crime. Otherwise there is no justice. The US does not have a justice system - only a legal system (whoever knows the most law
wins). There was nothing legal about this assassination. Nothing. It was an action designed to kill him. No capture was considered.
I'm not being a 'terrorist' apologist, merely showing that this was a political move rather than a move for justice.
The last thing TPTB needed was for someone with OBL's influence stating calmly before the world that he had nothing to do with certain 'terrorist'
actions. They couldn't take that chance; so he's dead. Think of all the questions that would raise! Think of where the blame would be pointed!
Whether he was dead prior to that is speculation. He's dead now. No mercy shown. I think that says more about the US foreign policy than it does
about OBL. That was a black day for American foreign policy. Whatever you think of OBL and his actions, this was a simple assassination. This brought
little comfort to the families of victims of 9/11 and other actions accredited to OBL. It just left a lot of questions unanswered. Probably best,
given current US foreign policy. The less questions asked/answered the better.
Sleep well. That could be you. Doesn't really matter what your crime is, you no longer have the safety of the rule of law to protect you. If TPTB
want you dead, you will be. If you even look like you'll spoil their fun you can be killed. "But I'm an American" will get you nothing anymore.
Who makes the rules? You? No. You don't. You live or die based on policy.
Look at some maps, and see what it took to 'bury' him at sea. Not exactly convenient.
