It provides no reason why we needed to 'shock and awe' a Pakistani neighborhood with a SEAL team choppered in to 'get' Osama. He was hunkered down. Seems like the easy target for a missile.

It wouldn't make a very exciting news story if they had whacked him with a missile, would it?
And movie about it would be down right boring, eh?

They didn't use bombs & missiles because there were a number of wives and children living in the house.

Wives and children in the home doesn't stop them from using Hellfire missiles. Check out the link.

I honestly hate when we disagree. Drones may in fact result in less innocent casualties but the ever broadening authority on their use just isn't okay.

I know you have seen this but for context:

A confidential Justice Department memo concludes that the U.S. government can order the killing of American citizens if they are believed to be “senior operational leaders” of al-Qaida or “an associated force” -- even if there is no intelligence indicating they are engaged in an active plot to attack the U.S.


That's funny, because the actual memo states "an al qaeda leader who is actively engaged in planning operations to kill Americans."

I think Graham is right. Based on this evidence. Liberals really are lying about it!

That's not just a black African son in the White HOuse, it is also an Arab son in the White House. Thus, we would expect especially Arabs to be getting off about the symbology, especially hyper-locals such as Wahhabists (Salafists) on the Nejd Plateau. Since Qutb the Salafist also attended the College of Education in Colorado, there's really quite a crowd gathering round the Wahhabist's traditional modus operandi of giving young men guns, in Chechnya, for example (It's that really tiny place, just keep going past the Black Sea). Yet, we are more interested to the conecpt's proximity to Aurora.
