    Here's the specific clip, for people who don't don't have much time:

    Fox Business' Napolitano: Bin Laden "Killed On The Illegal Whim Of The President" | Media Matters for America

    (And yes, its from "Media Matters", but it's just video of the intro of the show).

    and here's the full show:

    [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zaywNka8HFA&feature=player_embedded]YouTube - Freedom Watch - Killing The Rule Of Law 5/2/2011[/ame]

    "Freedom Watch" starts about 50 Seconds into the video.

    Judge Napolitano specifically states that Osama Bin Laden was assassinated "on the illegal whim of the president".

    I really could care less how he died. He deserved death and got it. A trial would have been a farce. Fuck anyone that whines about it.

    Why? Because he dared question the legality of the hit? He's not the only one.

    I agree. I support the President 100% on this. We did the right thing, absolutely. But... was it legal under international law? Probably not.

    I think you've unearthed a conspiracy here. Quick. Call CNN.

    Yep, and if they said it on national television, and were on the payroll of a major media outlet, I would say they need to fired too.

    There truly is no such thing as International Law. A country, any Country, can only enforce its legal views on another Country if the second Country agrees or loses to them in a war. Osama tried to place himself on the same level as a Country. We had every right to kill him in his self declared war. Further there is no compelling evidence to prove that the Seal Team lied when they said they offered to let him surrender.

    He didn't "Question the legality".

    He didn't ask "Was the assassination of Bin Laden legal?"

    He made a statement.

    That statement was that the "assassination of Osama Bin Laden was an illegal killing on the whim of the president".
