    Well, we definitely agree that it makes no sense.
    It makes no sense politically, and it makes no sense ideologically.
    This sounds like a complaint that we might hear from the anti-war far left, not from the Repubs at Fox.
    But, they must think it's a way to try to attack Obama.
    They're ALL about attacking Obama.

    There are war laws, and if they are breached they become war crimes. It seems a law may of been breached in shoot first ask questions latter, with the killing of an old unarmed man,

    But if that old 'unarmed' man does not surrender immediately when challenged, then, given his history and, in the circumstances present at the time, it might be reasonable to assume he has immediate access to some concealed weapon, such as a handgun or suicide vest. If the force was reasonable in the circumstances (i.e the circumstances as the shooter believed them to be), then that was not murder, but lawful killing in the course of a lawful arrest.

    Of course, we were not there, so we do not know exactly what happened.

    I was about to compliment you on putting up your pic and coming out of hiding - why is it gone already??icon_confused.gif

    This is why some of the RJ-cons should think about what they say before they say it. Osama Bin Laden, just "an old unarmed man?"

    Funniest shit I've read in a long time.

    WTF??? Osama Bin Laden was killed

    The man we have been TRYING to kill for the last 12 yrs
    The Army has been trying to kill
    The Marines
    The CIA

    Bush tried to find him and kill him
    and now Obama Finally did the dirty work and DID kill him
    you have the audacity to call it a War Crime?????

    When we JUST had an illegal war that was based on trumped up lies
    that killed HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS of Iraq citizens and set off a sectarian war that is still simmering over there
    Millions were dis placed from their homes
    the economy is a mess

    If ANYBODY is a War Criminal it is Bush
    Obama needs to be congratulated on mopping up after the previous imbecile

    The US Right Wing is in a tizzy -- a non-American Muslim Black socialist born in Kenya (Obama) has killed Osama bin Laden. Which lilly-white WASP George Bush couldn't manage in 7 years.

    So now the Right Wing has to somehow trash what they themselves wanted done, but failed to accomplish. An ironic turn of events. It's fascinating to watch the Right Wing twist & turn, trying to devise some way to criticize Obama for doing what they themselves declared was their own objective.

    Regrettably for the Right, Obama succeeded, and they failed. Isn't it lovely to watch them squirm & spin? Fortunately, the American people benefit by having a President who gets things done.

    I love politics in our country. If Bush had killed him the democrats would be saying the exact same thing.

    News flash, politics didn't kill osama bin laden.. an elite team of trained navy seals that have probably been in service long before either of these presidents sat down in the oval office..

    Wrong again. I only occasionally watch FOX NEWS (prefer CNN) but when I have tuned in this week I haven't heard anyone suggesting that killing Bin Laden was illegal, and I have heard plenty of praise for Obama. The world is a much happier, and more sane, place when you try to see both sides. You should try it sometime.

    OK,so you claim you don't watch the right-wing propaganda on FOX News. Now what makes you think that rickrick91 does? Proofs, please?

    Well, read his posts. He is quoting them all the time. You can start with this thread he started. When's the last time you saw me quote a FOX NEWS source -- if ever? I get my news from a variety of sources, and only half believe any of them.

    I very much doubt that little Ricky or his playmate Bobby have ever watched Fox news. I've watched both Fox and CNN a bunch this week and I've seen nothing like what they've alleged on Fox. They actually challenged the legality of it a little harder on CNN. The topic of legality came up tonight during O'Reilly and both he and his panel all agreed that it was very much legal.

    Maybe they really ought to give Fox News a try, just once.

    I watch Fox and CNN. I've seen nothing like what you claim on Fox News. What is so right-wing about Shep Smith and Juan Williams? Give it a try someday.

    Even the 'partisan' Karl Rove tonight. Where's the alleged hate? The only hate I see is from the left - again

    Show me the hate - minute and second.
