with bin laden, none of this was done.
this body is not about to die.
Agreed, which is why I was surprised they killed him. I know it was a fire fight, but still, I'd do everything within my power to keep him alive - maybe they did try? Or maybe they believe he's too dangerous to keep alive. But really, more dangerous than the next guy in line, or any other radical? This will not end with Osama, who probably spent his final days watching cartoons as opposed to calling shots. I'm just super skeptical over this. They tracked him down, killed him, and dumped his body. And the only proof is purported DNA evidence? It's like a poorly written WWE storyline.
