Osama bin Killed

No tears to shed over the death of Osama Bin Laden, but what happened in Abbottabad was an act of extra-judicial execution.

Now, I thought that in the ‘war’ against Al Qaida the west was supposed to be the good team and one of the things that distinguished us from the bad guys was stuff like habeas corpus, due process, visible justice and so on.

None of that applied when OBL was shot so what is the US fighting for?
