141. There are reports that that was the case. And the story was inconsistent.
This was kind of an important event, and the administration should've really taken the time to make sure everyone was telling the same story. Something is fishy about it.

I don't "hope" that that's what happened. I am concerned that it may be the case. I'm concerned that Obama may have decided that killing bin Laden would be easier than putting him on trial, independent of the situation on the ground.

If the situation on the ground made it necessary to kill him, great, take him out, that's fine. But if the political situation made it inconvenient to capture him and that's why they killed him... that's weakness, and it hurts the cause of fighting the ideology that leads to terrorism.
