  1. “he deserved to be brought to justice”

    I’ve been struggling with this all day – the use of the word justice, by everyone from Obama to the man on the street (or Facebook). I agree with the statement above, but don’t agree that’s what has happened.

    Whatever Bin Laden’s crimes (numerous & hideous), surely he deserved justice. Killing Bin Laden doesn’t bring about justice for anyone. Taking him alive to be charged and tried and then sentenced would. But it seems the US feel quite at ease about denying a trial to people they don’t agree with (see Guantanamo Bay).
