Was the killing of Bin Laden right even if illegal under international law ?


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?

    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 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.
