This bin Laden saga is geeting more hilarious by the minute... first of all he's armed, then he's not armed... then his wife his killed, then all of a sudden she comes back to life again... whoops, better correct the human shield wheeze if neither of 'em were armed - what a farce. I would point out that anyone shooting dead defenceless persons in such circumstances commits murder and in that respect I'm calling for Obama and the immediate field operatives to be arrested and put on trial at the ICC.
No, say it ain't so. You'll piss off all those folks who are claiming the sun shines out of Obama's butt - you can only say these things when George Bush is president.

1 - They never said his wife was killed, she was shot in the leg (calf) 2 - Osama does have 2 arms a right and a left so yes he was armed. 3 - Yes she was a human shield - question still remains, did Osama grab her to use as a shield or did she try to protect him ? ?
I am calling for Osama #2 man to held for war crimes, for the murder of the innocent.
"I'm calling for Obama and the immediate field operatives to be arrested and put on trial at the ICC."
Good luck with that. The list of people I, and probably even you, would like to see in the ICC before Obama is as long your, ahem, arm - and I am not holding my breath for any of them to appear in the ICC any time soon.

Robert Fisk interviewed Bin Laden face to face on threee different occasions. The death of Bin Laden [by] Robert Fisk: Was he betrayed? Of course. Pakistan knew Bin Laden's hiding place all along
Tuesday, 3 May 2011 A middle-aged nonentity, a political failure outstripped by history by the millions of Arabs demanding freedom and democracy in the Middle East died in Pakistan yesterday.[ ]
[T]he mass revolutions in the Arab world over the past four months mean that al-Qa'ida was already politically dead. Bin Laden told the world indeed, he told me personally that he wanted to destroy the pro-Western regimes in the Arab world, the dictatorships of the Mubaraks and the Ben Alis. He wanted to create a new Islamic Caliphate. But these past few months, millions of Arab Muslims rose up and were prepared for their own martyrdom not for Islam but for freedom and liberty and democracy. Bin Laden didn't get rid of the tyrants. The people did. And they didn't want a caliph.
[ ] there is one [ ] obvious question unanswered: couldn't they have captured Bin Laden? Didn't the CIA or the Navy Seals or the US Special Forces or whatever American outfit killed him have the means to throw a net over the tiger? "Justice," Barack Obama called his death. In the old days, of course, "justice" meant due process, a court, a hearing, a defence, a trial. Like the sons of Saddam, Bin Laden was gunned down. Sure, he never wanted to be taken alive and there were buckets of blood in the room in which he died.
But a court would have worried more people than Bin Laden. After all, he might have talked about his contacts with the CIA during the Soviet occupation of Afghanistan, or about his cosy meetings in Islamabad with Prince Turki, Saudi Arabia's head of intelligence. Just as Saddam who was tried for the murder of a mere 153 people rather than thousands of gassed Kurds was hanged before he had the chance to tell us about the gas components that came from America, his friendship with Donald Rumsfeld, the US military assistance he received when he invaded Iran in 1980.
oh that's cool - let's defend a terrorist... in fact the #1 one in the world.
Pineta said they had orders to kill but IF he threw his hands up to surrender they'd capture him. Seals said that appeared to be reaching for a weapon or something.... none of us were there, it was their call.. so you can speculate all you want... . they had no way to predict what his intentions were... so they just reacted !! Get over it !
