Why are some saying now that strategically speaking it would've been better to keep Bin Laden alive?

  • Known vs unknown. We may not have been able to read his mind, be we could predict relatively what he would do. Now we have no idea who is in charge, what they will do, or how, only that retaliation is promised. And it's not so much keeping him alive - capturing would still have the same effect. Not announcing it right away (like waiting months) would've given a better chance to get an idea what's going on behind the scenes.

  • Maybe so he can't die a martyr? I hope the virgins he believes he'd be getting are all large & hairy males! -lol (just a joke- not a slam against the religion)  Also, wouln't it have been great to see him squirm in a U.S. cell?  Death was too good for him! Glad he's gone, but I can see where some people would've like to see him brought to justice- American style!  To think he would've told us anything useful is a bit naive- even w/ water-boarding! Great job to our brave troops!  Mission accomplished for real this time!
