You are trying to justify

You are trying to justify this extra-legal execution of a man who may very well be a mass murderer, but never has been convicted.

I don't need to justify anything.  It is self-justifying and I don't care if you or your terror apologist friends agree or not.  He was an unlawful enemy combatant engaged in offensive operations against my country.  He was a military target.  He was eradicated and the threat removed.  If you find that arrogant and militaristic, then too bad.  I really don't care.  It's not about you and it's not about me.  It's about doing what it takes for our national security.

Osama bin Laden 'closely involved in al-Qaida plots

Files seized in raid that killed Bin Laden reveal his role in planning potential terror attacks, including one on US rail system

Osama bin Laden stayed in touch with his al-Qaida network from his Pakistan safe house and continued to plot potential terrorist attacks, including one against the US railway system, according to early analysis of files seized when he was killed.

The special forces team who shot Bin Laden in the early hours of Monday took away a mass of digital information on computers, hard drives and storage discs, as well as paper documents. An initial trawl through the files indicate Bin Laden was not a mere figurehead for the militant group but remained closely involved in nuts-and-bolts planning, according to various US reports.
