71. You would not want to bomb in this case for many reasons
including political and intelligence. If Obama was gonna get Osama he wanted the world to know it, and I don't blame him for that in anyway.

But keeping him alive brought up all kinds of legal issues I believe this administration probably did not want to deal with. And given the fact Osama was unarmed and shot precisely twice right above the eye suggests this was a targeted killing. Do I know that for a fact? Again, no.

But I think claiming this was a capture mission is based on hope and not actual evidance.
