“SEALs shot bin Laden because they thought he might be reaching for a weapon”

This is just sad. First the White House told us bin Laden was firing at the SEALs, using his wife as a shield. Then that story became inoperative, and they said he was unarmed. Now officials are saying that the SEALS shot bin Laden because they thought he might be reaching for a weapon.
So they think the SEALS, who obviously, in my view, were sent into Pakistan to shoot bin Laden, take his body away and dump it into the ocean, need to be defended like a policeman who shoots an unarmed man on the street and says it looked like he was reaching for a gun. Pathetic. We have been trying to kill bin Laden for nearly a decade, and finally succeeded. Great news. Can’t we leave it at that, without the White House muddying the waters with their crime-fighting approach to international terrorism?
