Oh so what now they want to go after the NAVY SEALS that killed OBL? If that happens, then Obama’s numbers will tank.

I doubt that. I think Obama gave the troops orders to kill him and not take him alive.
Imagine if he was captured. We would have to give him a trial where he could say whatever he wanted. We wouldn't be the audience he cared about, the Muslim world would be.
How many Americans would be captured and held hostage all over the world as their captors demanded OBLs release?

When videos of OBL surfaced after 9/11 with him gloating about the murders, he signed his execution warrant. To shot or blown up on sight with no warning and no chance to surrender.

Let’s not forget the ambush of Yamamoto! Great shooting!

Some people just need killing.

The daughter has reportedly told her Pakistani investigators that the US forces captured her father alive but shot him dead in front of family members. “

I can live with that! Carte Blanche for our SEALS!

It may be that you're correct but it's not in the nature of a liberal to want to kill. Obama struggled with this decision for 16 hours prior to giving the order-what order we don't know. What's to struggle with???? GITMO should have show all of us that Obama doesn't care if UBL had a platform. He believes that just bring them to trial and everything will be hunky-dory.

The trouble is people are believing Obama was thinking like a conservative-or even a moderate. It is not in his nature.

” I didn’t ask who gave the order, BECAUSE IT HAD NOTHING TO DO WITH BUSINESS!!!”
