N.T. Wright gets Ron Paul's back on Bin Laden: not if but how

Remember, the argument is not one of if, but how. RP and NTW both agree that OSB deserved to be brought to justice. The question is how? Read on.

I agree with most of this...RP's best comment was to mention how we brought Nazi perpetrators (who killed a lot more folks) to trial. They were tried, convicted, and hung. The process and public nature of the trial maintained national sovereignties and still gave the victims a full sense of closure/justice. In fact, a trial on US soil, drug out over days, humiliating to the perpetrator/his family/his organization, would arguably be a far worse sentence than killing him in private in front of his family. Just a thought.
