    Re: Osama Bin Laden is dead

    When you think about it, bin Laden's burial was kind of like waterboarding. Obama is a sneaky guy.

    he did confess to everything ever done. But that is what waterbaording is most effective at. It is not as good at gathering information. And frankly, we've seen no verifiable evidence that he gave us much. In this case we got the carriers name long after waterboarding. Seems factually, those methods work better.

    I understand perfectly, but suspect you don't. You accepting unverifable propaganda doesn't change much.

    Thanks. You would be correct.

    Would they have got those things without taking them out so to speak? Blood lust is common. Not needed, but common. I prefer rule of law to revenge. All of us, myself included, can step over the line easily. It is good to have rules to live by, that guide us even when we don't want them to.

    Actually the sources are first rate and you've no sources whatsoever.

    Had they taken OBL alive rather than shooting him in the head the Obama administration would have have had to read him his rights and received no information from him whatsoever. He would have immediate access to lawyers.

    Instead Eric Holder is going after the CIA Agents who got the information where OBL was hiding. And you, as an American, think this is a good policy?
