U.S. says bin Laden unarmed when killed

As more details emerge of the killing of Osama bin Laden things look worse and worse in terms of the morals and behaviour of the US.

So he was unarmed and they knew that but still chose to kill him after wounding a woman trying to protect him.

How does shooting an unarmed man in the head serve justice?

It seems the US had known where OBL was for months, so how come they are presenting some things as of they had no time to plan? No time to plan a live capture. No time to plan what to do with the body so they just had to drop it from the helicopter when they "discovered" they could not take him to Saudi Arabia.

It is wrong for governments to ignore the rule of law when hunting terrorists. We cannot pick and choose who obeys the law. If we want to chase terrorists as criminals then we cannot behave as criminals ourselves.

    I am large agreement about the rule of law and hunting terrorist.
    However, we are still waiting for all the facts to come out about this. Maybe he wasn’t quite literally unarmed either.
    Surely what really matters is what the US’s intent was when they went after him. We don’t know – but the night he was killed, CNN was calling it a capture or kill operation which suggests that capturing him was a goal.
    In practical terms, it was always likely to end like this, wasn’t it?

    Actually the thing is many people tell this issue with many thoughts. But I don’t know what the actual thing is? The time of the occurance is need to be cleared. So please repost the issue with indicating the actual information with legal proofs. Thanks for the post.
