Agreed. I'd also like to point out that the people in the World Trade Center, in the Pentagon, and on Flight 93 (and many others around the world) were all unarmed when he sent his suicide squads after them. And I definitely agree that a trial would have been a complete mess. Better to make this a quick, clean, and very clear reprisal. This man has gone far beyond being a war criminal and a trial would have only legitimized him and his "cause".
