ChiTrib: Obama 'gutsey' call?

Chicago PM Wednesday 2 May 2012

Editors, Chicago Tribune


The Chicago Tribune editorial 'Go ahead, celebrate' refers to President Obama's order to assassinate Osama bin Laden as a 'gutsy call'. It was an inexperienced over-his-head president stooping to using a most basic human response (He killed, he must die) in attempting to save his failing administration from failing even more than it is.

Wouldn't it be better to admit if bin Laden could figure out how to kill 3,000 people in one attack he must have lots of other plans to repeat the deed, and also must know lots of bad people who could do the same. So lock him up and ask him questions for the rest of his natural life.

Is it too much to expect a President to avoid catering to the lowest human instincts (Obama's apparent answer to too many problems) in using every tool available to reduce the possibility of future deadly attacks?
