Yup, but you don’t really want to give ANYONE the chance to do a world-wide photo spread on a bunch of dead women and kids.
We get enough photoshopped phony attempts to slander our military as it is.
If we got OBL, and the MSM could prove that an innocent civilian in the area even felt badly about it, let alone actually was injured, we’d probably have done ourselves less damage in so-called world opinion if we’d passed on the shot.
Same sh**, different day.
I don't know if it would matter that much.
Didn't the IAF nail 20-30 people when they took out Saleh Shahada in 2002, including his ninja-accoutered wife?
To me it seems irrelevant, because I doubt that you'll ever be able to kill Bin Laden without doing some collateral damage.
I don't think he's hot-footin by his lonesome, a la Saddam Hussein.
