99. Well, if we let a foreign national plan acts of terrorism in America
and we do nothing, then yes they can come and kill him. If, however, they come to kill someone who committed his "crime" in the name of the US government, then it is an act of war and we should retaliate with all the force we can.

You do understand that OBL was not a government agent? He did not commit his acts in the name of a sovereign nation. Those little details mean a lot in international law.
