    No sitting member of the SCOTUS would say otherwise . Regardless of who the POTUS was.

    Wasn't an assassination. Was a targeted military strike.

    Those of us that support the Constitution, Law and order categorically state that assassination is not legal and should be prosecuted.

    The members of the narcotized populace will say that it wasn't an assassination because it "was a targeted military strike".

    Let me help you out here.

    Osama Bin Laden declared war on the United States and planned the killing of several thousand Americans. That makes him both a criminal and an adversary of the state. It was well known that the United States was seeking to bring him to justice. At any time he could have surrendered to international authorities to address the charges.

    He did not.

    Additionally he was involved in further planning of attacks. So what the United States did was twofold.
    -It thwarted his efforts to do further harm to the United States.
    -It brought a fugitive to justice.

    Both completely legal under domestic law..and international protocol.

    Let me help you out here.


    Show EVIDENCE that Osamah declared war on the US of A and had the means to carry his threat to fruition.

    If you are going to rely on videos for your argument please show EVIDENCE that those videos were authenticated.

    Yo Vern, did you listen to the video? He gave the same response as the one given to the Pakistani newspaper.

    He declared jihad against MILITARY targets in Saudi Arabia. He specifically stated that he would not go after civilian targets.

    If you don't believe your own evidence ..then we are done.
