    Re: Moore: Bin Laden Suffered An "Execution;" Should Have Put Him On Trial

    Did the SEALS summarily execute Bin Laden when they could have captured him? Maybe. The official story now is that bin Laden was not armed, nor was he using his wife as a human sheild (she was charging the lead SEAL and got shot in the leg), but he was standing in the middle of the room and was shot because the team saw him reach for what they thought was a weapon.

    Though, Obama did indicate in his speech that we first captured Bin Laden, then killed him, which I thought was interesting.

    I'm willing to believe the SEALs when they said they shot him because he was going for a weapon.

    Did you happen to get the name of the Seal that described what happened?

    Good point. At this point the details are being conveyed by the Obama Admin, and they have changed their story three times. Though I do believe them when they say that Osama is dead, which is the most important detail I think.

    Of course it was an execution, and a very necessary one.

    Just what is your point, Mr. Moore?

    I think if Osama didn't move when confronted directly, he would be alive. His moving, at all, is a threat because one can reasonably presume that he has a detonation button nearby or even on him.

    It doesn't have to be a gunfight for Osama to have been a very real and direct threat. Suicide bomb is a rational out for him when cornered.


    Though, Obama did indicate in his speech that we first captured Bin Laden, then killed him, which I thought was interesting.
    Quote? I don't want to read the whole speech.

    Gotta love the Michael Moores who believe thier opinion is important to the mass'. Michael Moore just like none of the rest of us were in that compound a part of the mission. Truth be told I dont believe any of us including Obama will know precisely all that occurred and i dont CARE either...what I do care about is the scumbag is dead and we dont have let him put on a show for the entire world to see and have holder attempting to have his trial in downtown NYC

    I don't care if they shot him in his sleep, the Seal that pulled the trigger gets free beer for life.
    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.

    Micheal Moore should go on a diet.

    Seriously, he's upset about all this?
    I would have preferred it if Osama Bin Laden was captured and put on trial rather than killed.

    But, then again, I'm not going to condemn anybody for shooting him on sight.
    Also, we need to legalize recreational drugs and prostitution.

    Sam honestly do you realize what a sideshow it would have been...can you imagine the circus it would be...dead is much better and hes a fine example of who should be made very dead....
