Subject: RE: BS: obit: Osama Bin Laden ???
Well, Jim: my impression is that the overall sympathy of posters here is against rather than for you, which is unusual; a general irrelevance seems to be the complaint of quite a lot who are usually more sympathetic to your POVs.

If I have not engaged too deeply with the main point of this thread, it is because it represents one of my "can see virtue in both sides" arguments. I regret any necessity for abuse of any state's territorial integrity; but cannot feel much compassion for the man who got what he had explicitly asked for, and thoroughly deserved; and, pace Richard [whose pov as a man of the law I perfectly well comprehend] I think any attempt to secure him for 'due process' {which I should in general regard as an essential element in the achievement of justice} would in this instance have brought more problems than solutions in its wake.

Hope all this makes sense!
