Poor bin Laden. This just makes me want to sit right down and cry. Or not.
WASHINGTON â€” The adult sons of Osama bin Laden have lashed out at President Obama over their fatherâ€™s death, accusing the United States of violating its basic legal principles by killing an unarmed man, shooting his family members and disposing of his body in the sea.
The statement said the family was asking why the leader of Al Qaeda â€œwas not arrested and tried in a court of law so that truth is revealed to the people of the world.â€ Citing the trials of Saddam Hussein and Slobodan Milosevic, the statement questioned â€œthe propriety of such assassination where not only international law has been blatantly violated,â€ but the principles of presumption of innocence and the right to a fair trial were ignored.
â€œWe maintain that arbitrary killing is not a solution to political problems,â€ the statement said, adding that â€œjustice must be seen to be done.â€
Linky to the rest, but a word of caution, it’s to the Old Gray Commie Trollop.
bin Laden declared war on America. He did so believing that we were a paper tiger, but if I don’t believe in gravity, it doesn’t mean it can’t kill me. Now he knows. And as the old saying goes, “He’s laughing out of the other side of his mouth now.”
