A worthwhile point. This is why the President said the action was taken on his command. You have to be the President of the United States to make this kind of decision legally. Was it ethical? Yes, I think so. Not easy and clear cut choice, but life is like that. That why who is in charge is important. I believe the right decision was made. And not just because it was popular.
Um - so some unarmed guy gets shot in the head by troops operating in a foreign country - no trial - is that justice ?
Sometimes the popular thing to do is also the right thing to do. When that happens, we get to feel good about ourselves and each other. And, excuse me, but I am enjoying the moment.
