Yes it does, but it isn't the actual killing of bin Laden that bothers me, but the repercussions from how it was done, which I feel fits in perfectly with the past policies of the US, and more recently, of Britain, in attempting to bring the situation to heel militarily.
There is a huge problem of religious fanaticism involved here, but there is just as serious a problem of the most powerful nation in the world securing its own interests, in this case, the supply of oil, by all means possible, including by force.
