@Charles. I'm not saying Osama must not be killed. But according to recent report,he was killed when it was very possible for him to be captured alive. Ofcourse,this could have been better as his trail would afford us to know the two sides of the story. Do u know if any govt. was aiding him? Do u know if the American govt. has some hypocritical stand or even some reasonable blame in the world's terrorism that have killed thousands of lives? Even when we have suspicions in this directions,Osama could have authenticated them thru his confessions. Then,the world would have known how better to handle the problem of terrorism, in addition to giving Osama a well deserved sentence-which possibly could be worse than what he had got.
American only show you what they want you to see and hide what they think you should not see. There are stories to Osama than meet the eyes. The manhunt started in mid August and if they wanted him alive, they would have done that for the whole eight months. I quite agree with you that Osama's trial if captured alive would have caused trouble for America.
Any how, think his death pays the world also because of atrocities he commited. But will we ever know the truth?
