273. Do I think President Obama said 'go murder OBL'?
No. Not in those words.

Do I think there was any effort to stress trying to get him alive to bring him to trial? No.
C'mon, this is the same thing as Bush's 'smoke 'em outta their holes', the 'Wanted: Dead or Alive' (preferably dead) mentality.

And surely you are aware the President declared even U.S. citizens can be 'shot on sight', without benefit of trial
even if they're just suspects?

Is it Human Rights or 'American' Rights? Preceding sentences negates that question...
Are we a nation of laws or aren't we?
Or are we a nation of laws only when it's convenient
and convenient only to the right people?

Am I glad OBL is dead? Sure.
But I would have loved to see him convicted in a fair court of law.
Our justice system can handle it -- it handles Death Penalty cases all the time.
