Sorry there is a misunderstanding of my post so I want to step in here.
I don't care if the guy lives or doesn't. So the "melancholy" is not about that.
Here in Germany, there is the principle of 'innocent till proven', and this means, proven in a court of justice.
Now don't get me wrong again and say I said Bin Laden was innocent. This is exactly not what I'm saying. But ideally, he should have been judged in front of a court and not shot before. It is sad that this court case did not happen.
The news about how this event happened was only released later in the news, thus Driver Nate writing what he had read, and at this stage I had read it, too (as I wrote).
What I was basically saying, and this is because my first impression was that Bin Laden was killed because he was meant to be killed in the first place, and because of Guantanamo is that these people should get a chance to get a court case, like a state of justice would grant them, of course. What I was saying is that the U.S. should stick to such higher principles.
Hope it's easier to understand now.
