If possible, Osama should have been brought back to the U.S. and put on trial. It would have lead to his execution anyways.
But I'm having a hard time understanding how a 50+ year old man who was unarmed could have posed a threat to the highly trained SEALS, which lead to him getting shot in the head and in the chest... and no where else somehow. Obviously I wasn't there, but I'd like to hear more information about how all this went down.
If they executed him then and there (or shot him before giving him a chance to surrender), that would be a horrible representation of our country. What Osama did was unforgivable, but we should not stoop down to that level. Justice and revenge are on completely different levels.

No. I don't want anyone "killed" for revenge. I do on the other hand think he got what he deserved insofar as he hurt and killed many.
We have to be better than those we fight and not stoop to the level they do.

I didn't want Osama killed. I wanted him whisked away to a secret prison where his head was dunked underwater until he told us everything he knew and then some. The intel dump we got from his house is supposed to be enormous - imagine how much more we could glean from it if we had him to question over it, if we could drag from his brain every ounce of context, meaning, and background. Then we should have released some pathetic videos of him going over the notes with US analysts, helping the Americans to decipher the information and track down his former jihadi buddies....
.... and then we should have executed him.
sadly, this could never happen. Osama had to be killed right there, lest Eric Holder get his claws into the case and start insisting that he be read his Miranda Rights, provided a Lawyer, used to Prove the Purity of the System, etc.... Had one of the SEALs (gasp!) mishandled delicate Osama, we would have had to see one of our True Heroes get put on trial because a poor wittle tewwowist weader got his wrist slapped.
So Osama had to be killed. Not because that was the optimum solution, but to keep our own idiots from turning him into a weapon against us.
