Your feigned outrage is pathetic Disney and your words show how hollow it truly is. Are some on the right acting as dispciable as you? Absolutely. That's no more the definition of "The right wing" then you are of the left wing. It just shows there's ridiculous hyper partisans on both sides that don't give a damn about anything except for thier political agenda.
To the topic of the thread...yes, Osama should've been killed. There wasn't a place in this country and potentially world where an honest and fair trial could've been conducted without bias. While interrogating him may've yeilded valuable intelligence, I think the harm of the long drawn out delay in his trial would've likely proved more troublesome than what we may've gleamed from him.
However, I disagree with the assertion that it was an "easy" call. For one, we don't know all the evidence that was provided to him and how concrete it was...it could've been like past instances under Bush and Obama where they did not move on a chance because the information either wasn't definitive enough, the risks were too great, or a combination of both. It could've also been a slam dunk that he was 99% there, but it still wouldn't be an honestly easy decision if we're being truthful about this and honestly trying to look at it from the vantage point of a President. You're commiting men's lives to the mission. You're potentially causing a significant foreign issue with the Pakistani government if you're wrong. If you're wrong, but not all the intel is wrong, you've successfully cut a thread of intelligence prematurely potentially ruining years of intel gathering. No, it was far from an easy choice to say "yes" no matter how much of a slam dunk it was that he was there. And this isn't even taking into account the potential "political" thoughts that could be playing into it, but simply thoughts important to the position of Commander-In-Chief.

"A court took away a presidency"
"...the brother of a man running for president was the governor of the state..."
It's horrifying because Trump is blunt instead of making overt implications.

AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.
