The U.S. special forces team that hunted down Osama bin Laden was under orders to kill the al Qaeda mastermind, not capture him, a U.S. national security official told Reuters.Here's another article via that same Instapundit link above:
"This was a kill operation," the official said, making clear there was no desire to try to capture bin Laden alive in Pakistan.
No terrorist deserves diplomatic immunity or legitimacy’s embrace. All terrorists deserve death. Perhaps it is time for Americans, Europeans, and their media elite to reexamine their most glaring double standards: If Americans can kill a master terrorist targeting civilians then Israel too should be able to target Hamas leaders in Gaza, Damascus, Oslo, or Dubai, wherever they may be.Well I'm glad that after almost a decade since the 9/11/2001 attacks that we have finally found this man. Yeah we killed him, but we never gave up until we found him. I accepted that we may have bombed him out of his cave and possibly was buried in a cave, but this outcome I never expected.
