m00: Mugato: Are you insane? Do you have any idea how many attempts on his life there'd be if people even knew he was in the country, let alone having a public trial? Because I don't but I'm guessing it'd be a lot. And while I obviously wouldn't care about his life, I can see innocent people getting hurt from stray gunfire, I can even imagine American suicide bombers. Fark that noise. They did the right thing.So just to be clear... your position is that we should execute prisoners without a trial because innocent people might die when vigilantes try and kill said prisoner.Cuz we managed to try the Nazis. We gave Eichmann a trial. But bin Laden... that's bullet-to-the-head w/o a trial.
Superjew: Chris Ween: It was an assassination and that is not what I believe in.No it wasn't. Unless you think a guy can organize and carry out an attack that kills thousands of people then just say "time out guys, I'm not playing right now".
Cymbal: Lsherm: But this is perhaps the most measured and polite description that one could give of how operator after operator took turns dumping magazines-worth of ammunition into Bin Laden's body, two confidential sources within the community have told us. When all was said and done, UBL had over a hundred bullets in him, by the most conservative estimate.I cannot believe a team that was waiting for extraction after already crashing a helicopter would break discipline like that. They were already pressed for time, the house was full of children, and they weren't supposed to be in Pakistan in the first place. When were they supposed to play target practice with his body?I'm sure the ship they dumped his body into the sea from had plenty of places for target practice.
Nick Nostril: Pre chewed for the sharks. Nice of them.
scottydoesntknow: To be fair, he was at home base. Everyone is safe at home base.
Old_Chief_Scott: James!: Well that's just a misuse of a cooking implement right there. I hope they ran it through the dish washer a couple of times after.That's not how it works.The SEALs don't carry any sort of utensils at all. When they eat the hold the meat in their hands and rip it from the bone with their teeth. They probably sent the junior guy downstairs to the kitchen to find a spatula, used it, and then left it behind, because let's face it, a spatula is a pretty shiatty souvenir.
Doctor Funkenstein: Trust me, when Obama farts a guy's face off, you don't want to see the aftermath.

Barry Lyndon's Annuity Cheque: Sounds like the sort of thing you'd do if you needed to fake an Osama killing. Mutilate the body beyond recognition, dump it in the sea at night. Nobody's any the wiser that he died in a cave years ago. Everybody gets to pat themselves on the back.Have fun with that, conspiracy theorists.
slayer199: Head shots are particularly gory...and I'm guessing they unloaded a lot of those hundred shots into his head...there was probably nothing left.
James!: They should train that guy a little better then. A spatula isn't what you want for picking up viscera. What you want is a ladle.
serfdood: Were the bullets dipped in pigs blood?
m00: But my point is Osama I'm sure has some knowledge of similar shady stuff the US has done, that our government doesn't want to get out. Because it's a "National Secret" which means it's horribly offensive and US citizens would disapprove if they knew about it. That's why he wasn't captured,

shanteyman: It was an assassination and that is not what I believe in.Then how would you have wanted the operation to go down ? " Gee Mr. Bin Laden, you'll have to come with us now " ?
flynn80: scottydoesntknow: If the guy personally orchestrated (and claimed responsibility for) the killings of thousands of people all over the world, I really would not have a problem with it.IF... The videos of him claiming responsibility were proven to be Fakes, to this day the FBI doesn't have any evidence linking him. Bush and Cheney openly laugh and Joke about the thousands they are responsible for killing in Iraq.

Chris Ween: shanteyman: It was an assassination and that is not what I believe in.Then how would you have wanted the operation to go down ? " Gee Mr. Bin Laden, you'll have to come with us now " ?Well, all previous reports were that he was unarmed. I'd think a big fat American Seal could handle him.
