    I think this is to be expected. Regardless what the troops did, it would be called and execution by some.

    There's a difference being armed and unarmed.
    First report was there was a 45 minute gun fight, then it was reported he was reaching for a gun, then it was reported that there were guns near him, then it was reported he was unarmed, Now we have this. And all this coming from the government except for this last story.

    Point take, here's a counter point. Why did we bury him with the mulism tradition but did not hold to our tradition of taking unarmed enemy as prisoner?

    "Supporters of Al-Qaeda and human rights groups and others will call this brutal execution." (sic)

    Was osama that big of a threat? I started a thread that showed Clinton Bush and obama knew exactly where Bin Laden was. As reported by Former CIA Director Porter Goss

    Harold Koh’s analysis of actions such as the operation against OBL is well on-point and confirms the Administration’s actions were legal.
    It therefore makes no difference what OBL was doing, armed or unarmed, offering resistance or not – his very existence posed a threat we were legally justified to eliminate.
