Human Rights Watch Condemns bin Laden Killing

You will recall that 'Human Rights Watch' was conflicted on Monday about how to respond to the killing of Osama Bin Laden. Now, they've had a chance to think about it. And they've decided to condemn Bin Laden's killing. Really.

On May 3 HRW executive director Ken Roth tweeted: Ban Ki-moon wrong on #Osama bin Laden: It’s not “justice” for him to be killed even if justified; no trial, conviction

In contrast to elected officials, such as President Obama, who must choose between real options, Roth presents a fictitious alternative in which arch-terrorists in countries like Pakistan can be arrested, tried, and punished by functioning international judicial systems.

Of course.
