    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.



    Quote? I don't want to read the whole speech.
    Maybe I'm wrong. I just reviewed the first speech he gave and he didn't say we captured him. I swear I heard him say that, but maybe not.

    A lot of things were said as the news was breaking, along with a lot of things that someone said that were said. That sort of thing always seems to happen whenever a big news story breaks. The facts take a while to get sorted out, but the story has to be played ASAP, before the competition scoops it.

    The difficulty of having a trial is insufficient grounds for not having one, imho.
    I may be wrong.

    Bah, Moore is a joke. Nobody with two brain cells pays a bit of attention to him. An AK-47 and a handgun were found in bin Laden's room, within his reach. Since he didn't fling his arms up and surrender while his wife rushed the assault team, I'm speculating that bin Laden was reaching for them when he was shot. To me it doesn't matter whether he was armed or unarmed, whether he was KIA or assassinated. He's dead. That's all that counts.

    Oh I understand. After all, his imprisonment will be a constant security threat, and because of that the lives of the guards would be in constant danger should Al Quaeda or some other Islamic extremist group try to free him by force. So would the lives of the prosecutor, the judge, any witnesses, and possibly even the defense attorney.

    That's why I don't condemn anyone at all for killing him.

    But there's also the moral high ground we need to maintain. Due process is a good way to maintain that. I mean we even captured Saddam Hussein and put him on trial and he was executed. So I don't think it would have been all as bad as you state.

    Like I said, I'd have preferred a trial but I'm not going to cry that he didn't get one.
    Also, we need to legalize recreational drugs and prostitution.

    They made me watch "Roger and Me" in high school and I've never forgiven the man.

    I love Moore but he has lost some bigtime respect from me over this

    Seriously, he's upset about all this?
    If they really wanted *that* they should have been pushing for it thise entire time - and no one *not a single ****ing soul* did anything of the sort.

    So no one really gave a ****.

    Almost all executions are done on unarmed men. They don't allow the prisoners guns, do they?

    There was no doubt about Obama's guilt, which is the purpose of a trial.

    So he was shot, what's the big deal?
