#3 But if bin Laden was no longer a leader, it would no longer be permissible to treat him as an enemy combatant or kill him.

Well sport...right there's the monkey in yer wrench. Ya see, it's perfectly legal to extinguish "enemy combatants". And well...Binny was...yes indeed...designated as an enemy combatant. Pretty sure your tortured logic wouldn't erase that fact. Next time you might wanna try leaving out the unprovable hypotheticals in your legal arguments. But nice try anyway.

#5 But for the sake of humanity: Next time you go after a terrorist, take a German law professor with you who can tell the terrorist to surrender peacefully.

Win Win
