I would really like to understand why the killing of bin Laden was so important. Normally the authorities would want to capture a person like him so that he could be questioned as to his real part in the 9/11 tragedy. Now, of course he is gone and we will never know the whole truth or unfortunately even any of the truth about that fateful day. He was killed when he had no weapon so it was gratuitous murder.

War is a Crime!!! Persecute it.
