Guilty until proven innocent is a popular term. It might be a legal term, it might NOT be a legal term, but the meaning is carried out by all present legal systems, that I know of.
Here is my question.
Osama Bin Laden (hereafter OBL in this post), Al-Qaeda and the Taliban have been accused of many crimes against human beings. I use the term human beings, because they allegedly killed people in 9/11 and before that terrorized Pakistani citizens and Indians and Israelis and the list goes on.
I have only one question.
Where is the proof?
For logic to prevail, and justice to prevail, there should be no doubt left in our minds regarding the actions of OBL and the crimes he has committed. However, 9/11 was never proven to be OBL as far as my knowledge serves me, and please correct me if I'm wrong in this assumption.
When and where was this justice served?
Was the justice served in the media, by the people, in which case where is the referendum? or was this all just an angry mob?
Don't get me wrong here, if he killed even one person, even one innocent person, he deserved to die and in that case he won't get the 70 virgins which are the punch line of many jokes since the last 10 years, but were is the proof that he killed even that one person?
So, speculation, a court session behind the closed doors of the white house or pentagon, and it was decided that OBL is the one to kill and lets declare a war on terror?
A US govt official has issued the statement (click here for media
) that OBL was a commander in the army they were fighting and thus they didn't have to give him a trial. In which case, I ask another simple question.
Who was this war against?
Since a war is against another nation OBL did not have a nation, or country backing him up, who was this war against?
I'm guessing you are going to reply "terrorists everywhere" or use a synonym. Does that mean I can rightfully declare war on any human, kill him and then say he was the commander, so I'm not subject to laws of the land?
OBL might not be a good guy, he might not be a bad one, he might be the scum the media played him out to be, and he might just be an angel. My question is simple.
WHERE WAS THE TRIAL?
