arma virumque cano (et alia)
I believe that this article from Findlaw.com more than adequately addresses the legality of killing bin Laden.http://blogs.findlaw.com/law_and_life/2011/05/was-killing-osama-bin-laden-legal.htmlThis is a secular nation, so I don't really give a damn if it was Christian or not. It was consistent with addressing an act of war and terrorism; it was not appropriate as an act of revenge or any other purpose.
I'm sorry. Six minutes of Bill Maher is way too much. I'm listening to Miles Davis right now.Anybody who would bitch about the killing of Bin Laden is about as un-American as it gets. Why don't you move to Islamabad? How bad could it be? At least you would be with like-minded individuals.
I learned in this video that it was legal, but that's only because they passed some flakey laws right after 9/11. It's wrong for the prez to send in hit squads to commit murder. War criminals and terrorists should be arrested and brought to trial just like everybody else.
