Hey Christiano,

Thank you very much for this post!

I've been strugling all week long trying to convince people around me that this killing is quite worrying and that it would have been good for Obama to at least say that "they tried to get him alive but unfortunately he resisted"…just to reassure us that the basic rules applies to all, even the worst terrorists…

I also wonder what is Obama's understanding of the word Justice when he says "Justice has been done"…as it looks more like private vengeance to me…

I'm quite sad not to have heard that criticism from any personality wether the UN, NGO's or the academic world…

And I'm affraid that what seems to be an illegal killing will be used by other leaders to justify their methods in the fight against terrorism, or against so-called terrorists like the opposition in Syria, China or others

I'm also scared that a russian newspaper held that on the basis of this act, it now seems internationaly accepted that operations to eliminate terrorists on the soil of other countries is considered legitimate…
