    U.N. rights investigators seek facts on bin Laden death

    U.N. rights investigators seek facts on bin Laden death

    (Reuters) - U.N. human rights investigators called on the United States on Friday to disclose the full facts surrounding the killing of Osama bin Laden, in particular whether there had been any plan to capture him.

    Christof Heyns, U.N. special rapporteur on extrajudicial, summary or arbitrary executions, and Martin Scheinin, special rapporteur on protecting human rights while countering terrorism, said that in certain exceptional cases, deadly force may be used in "operations against terrorists."

    "However, the norm should be that terrorists be dealt with as criminals, through legal processes of arrest, trial and judicially-decided punishment," the independent experts said in a joint statement.

    "In respect of the recent use of deadly force against Osama bin Laden, the United States of America should disclose the supporting facts to allow an assessment in terms of international human rights law standards," they said.

    "It will be particularly important to know if the planning of the mission allowed an effort to capture bin Laden."

    Did they send a sternly worded letter to Qaddaffi asking him to describe his plans and the results during this civil outbreak of protest?

    U.N. rights investigators seek facts on bin Laden death

    From Reuters:

    U.N. human rights investigators called on the United States on Friday to disclose whether there had been any plan to capture Osama bin Laden and if he was offered any "meaningful prospect of surrender and arrest."

    Principles of engagement in such operations require the possibility of surrender, firing warning shots and if necessary wounding a suspect, rather than killing him, they said.

    To a reasonable person, the notion that the UN implies that some kind of international law might have been violated in the United States' bringing Osama Bin Laden to justice, might seem surreal. Unfortunately, if one takes a closer look at the UN's often novel interpretations of international law, usually in a fashion aimed at depriving that body's target of its inherent right of self-defense, this latest development is not too surprising.

    Under the Laws of War, Bin Laden was not a civilian. He did not enjoy protected status. Indeed, evidence seized during the raid revealed that he continued to plot new attacks. Hence, he was continuing to serve in a command-and-control capacity making him a legitimate military objective.

    The U.S. should reject the UN's request, much as Israel correctly rejected cooperation with the highly-politicized and increasingly discredited Goldstone mission. Such political exercises that have little to do with concrete principles of international law can only undermine the inherent right of sovereign states to defend themselves. In doing so, rather than safeguarding human rights and international peace and stability, they endanger them.

    Screw that heavily biased anti US money sucking organization. Their opinion on this means exactly nothing to me, and as it should to the nation.

    Just another reason to withdraw from the UN. Think of the savings.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    I have a message for the UN and would be very happy to deliver it to the General Assembly or the Security Council.

    I am prohibited from using the terms needed to properly express my distain of the UN, and I have managed to avoid getting in trouble and I hope to remain so.

    ROTFLOL... One good thing about this UN stunt is it just might get a few Leftists to see the organization as many on the right do. A useless bit of corrupt dung that costs us hundreds upon hundreds of millions.

    After WWII it was a nice idea, a Kumbaya moment after years of death and destruction, but it's become nothing more than The League of Nations II.
