The killing of Bin Laden is now being described as illegal & extra-judicial under international & military law. It's widely agreed Bin Laden had become a shambling, lonely, powerless shadow of his previous self - if true - then why didn't the US take into account it's international responsibilities as "Killing a captive who poses no immediate threat is a crime under military law and other law". Does the US have right to supersede international law if it suits its agenda? Can we all break such laws? Did we insult 9/11 victims by not forcing Bin Laden to face real justice in court of law?

Would you have want him martyred for what he did to so many?
What happens even at the highest levels, when we throw justice out the window and do not give thugs a fair trial, despite our painful memories of what they did?
That's exactly what we did to this "WORLD" terrorist. And I think it was the right thing. Peace!
Good @who. @JThomp42, and killing him wouldn't martyr him? Interesting! But 9/11 was an inside job. Just look at the proof. Those pesky tons of iron microspheres in the 9/11 dust.
Agree to disagree. I just can't wrap my mind around that one?
They should have burned him alive? Christ almighty - how does crazed vengeance serve the victims of 9/11? P.S. Muslims had nothing to do with 9/11 just monsters using the name of Islam.
So what's your point Joe Cook? do you want him to be elected or selected as UN Secretary or appoint him as humanity development authority?? But as far as Islam is concern its just a peaceful religion just like Christianity or Hindustan.
Yes Panzer, There are radicals in all religion.
Panzer I'm suggesting he should have faced justice in a court of law. If we torture him or kill him painfully / slowly how does that distinguish us from the likes of him? "UN Secretary"? Bizarre.
Joe, That was an impossibility. He did not deserve to be Martyred.
Yes Panzer there are radicals in all religions - there are even some 'Christians' who call for the slow burning of men to death!
Joe, You are not my judge. God (Jehovah) is. And he will forgive me if I have said anything wrong in this conversation. Will allah forgive the muslims that carried out 9/11?
@JThomp42:I agree with you.infact Allah too preached peace and love but some people take it in their hands. And for Joe Cook: Pakistanis had sheltered and they didnt even accepted that, so he was killed( that too coz he resisted arrest with his gun.)
IF you are an American citizen and your faith is in Islam - would that person be self hating? Your answer sucks. It such a naive all- or nothing world view - it's pitiful.
@JThomp42 you judge Osama? And America is guiltless? And what if Rockefellers and Bush White House did 9/11? Osama said he didn't do it. So all this Muslim bashing might have been a convenient distraction to keep us from seeing the true darkness
Al Quida claimed full responsibility. This is a known fact. And yes the almost 3,000 lives were guiltless.
So just to be certain on this Panzer, you are saying we should have tortured him to death? And you have the gall to proclaim 'long live humanity'? Outrageous.
@ Joe So now you are deleting comments that prove you wrong. If you are going to do this? Don't ask questions in the first place.
No JT I've deleted a comment that calls for the slow burning to death of another human being. In this country, saying such a thing is illegal, morally wrong and contrary to the spirit of humanity. Your mother would be ashamed. Wash your mouth out.
Illegal? What happened to the freedom of speech? By the way, I was correct about the radical muslims. This is why the whole muslim world cheered. Al Queida was a radical muslim terrorist organization.
JT I'm in the UK. We don't have freedom of speech but instead anti hatred laws that prevent zealots & the religious right (you) from calling for murder. You call yourself a Christian! What would Jesus your saviour say about you calling for tortu
Yes, I am a christian. But, I am also human and fail him many times. This is a VERY TOUCHY subject for all of Americans.
You have a funny way of being a christian JT. Murder, Torture, Burning men alive. What next?
Joe, You have no right to judge me as SO MANY MUSLIMS HATE!!!!! This is just something I am passionate about. David, The apple of God's eye sinned, But we are forgiven.
