First Read - NBC poll: 80% said it was the right decision to kill bin Laden
No question it was the right decision.
Because Obama made it.
Had Bush made it the Left would be screaming about unwarranted assassinations of unarmed men and invasions of sovereign countries.
Who exactly are these other 20%? I mean I know it was the right decision. I dont like that we had to do it. Because I don't like seeing anyone's life taken. but it was clearly the right decision.
So now the left embraces the assassination of foreign nationals on foreign soil by Dick Cheney's death squad?
Too fucking funny.
The Left is made up of the biggest bunch of fucking hypocrites to walk the planet.
Killing bin Laden was one of the stupidest decisions in human history
There'd be demands for impeachment had Bush done this. No surprises.. these leftist whackaloons are totally full-of-shit.
I strongly disagree.
Especially when both Kathleen Sibelius AND Janet Napolitano are in the cabinet.
Spokesman for the other 20%
"It’s increasingly clear that the operation was a planned assassination, multiply violating elementary norms of international law.
"There appears to have been no attempt to apprehend the unarmed victim, as presumably could have been done by 80 commandos facing virtually no opposition—except, they claim, from his wife, who lunged towards them.
"In societies that profess some respect for law, suspects are apprehended and brought to fair trial. I stress 'suspects.'
"In April 2002, the head of the FBI, Robert Mueller, informed the press that after the most intensive investigation in history, the FBI could say no more than that it 'believed' that the plot was hatched in Afghanistan, though implemented in the UAE and Germany.
"What they only believed in April 2002, they obviously didn’t know 8 months earlier, when Washington dismissed tentative offers by the Taliban (how serious, we do not know, because they were instantly dismissed) to extradite bin Laden if they were presented with evidence—which, as we soon learned, Washington didn’t have.
"Thus Obama was simply lying when he said, in his White House statement, that 'we quickly learned that the 9/11 attacks were carried out by al Qaeda.'”
