OK, in Germany they said that US Specials have killed him. That they found him and he died.
I really think that they could have got him if they really wanted him - they wanted to see him dead.
they raided his compound and was killed, also if he was taken captive al qaeda would have tried to get him back and taking him alive on a ship is just asking for it to get attacked or they werent going to take him back to the U.S. alive and no other country would likely want him in their country..either way hes dead and its for the better
Sources now saying the operation was designed from the start to kill Bin Laden, not take him alive. That's the right decision IMO. You put this guy on all trial and all you get is more publicity for his cause. Then after he's convicted you would have an even bigger mess on your hands. You couldn't give him the death penalty because the rest of the world would raise a stink, but where would you house him as a prisoner? Even a maximum security prison wouldn't cut it, and we know how other nations feel about special military detention camps. One in the dome was really the way to go here. Amazing work by the military and intelligence community.
I was having a conversation yesterday afternoon about how the economy can't even start to recover until people have confidence in this county. I stated that if we cannot even get Osama after 10 years, people aren't going to have faith and buy in to any government operation. Then get home, turn on the t.v. and.. Whoomp! There It Is! Hopefully this is step one to getting America back on top.
