Why do we think that just because President Obama gave an order to kill it is alright. Two wrongs don’t make a right. Why not take bin Ladin alive? – David, Cambridge
White House officials say the Navy Seals who raided bin Laden’s compound were under orders to take him alive, but only if he was not a threat.
White House press secretary Jay Carney also said today that bin Laden was not armed when the commandos found him, but that he resisted, and wouldn’t give himself up. Carney said resistance does not require a firearm.
What do you think? Did they try to capture him or not?
