19. Why do you find the basic question I asked about due process so offensive?
Yes, the government has deemed that they can legally kill ANY individual they declare an enemy combatant. That's exactly what they did here and that's exactly what they have been doing for some time now. Unless you happen to have some information that I don't.

When you say Osama isn't just ANY individual what standard are you using to define "ANY" and who is the person that gets to set that standard?

I don't know for a fact that they made no attempt at capture, all I know is what the evidance says. And the evidance seems to point to a kill mission. When asked yesterday on the CBS interview Obama didn't seem to deny this was a kill mission. And as the government itself said Osama was unarmed when he was found. I have a hard time believing that the best trained special forces team in the world wasn't able to figure out if Osama was a threat or not, you might doubt their capability which is fair enough.

And speaking of FOX news. Remember how they reacted to any criticism of the government after 9/11? Seems a bit familiar, doesn't it?
