Bin Laden’s killing a ‘perversion of justice’

High-profile Australian QC and human rights lawyer Geoffrey Robertson says the killing of Osama bin Laden is a perversion of justice that has effectively given the terrorist mastermind what he craved.

In the days since bin Laden's death, the US has been forced to backtrack and clarify details of the killing, with a picture now emerging of a targeted assassination.

This morning, White House spokesman Jay Carney confirmed bin Laden was unarmed when US commandos raided his compound in Pakistan and shot him above his left eye, reportedly blowing away a section of his skull.

Mr Robertson has told ABC News Breakfast bin Laden should have been brought to trial and his death has made him look like a martyr.

"The way to demystify this man is not to kill him and have the iconic picture of his body," he said.

"The way to demystify him, rather than to these soulful pictures of the tall man on the mountain, is to put him on trial, to see him as a hateful and hate-filled old man screaming from the dock or lying in the witness box.

"That way the true inhumanity of the man is exposed."

Mr Robertson says US president Barack Obama has been sloppy with his use of the word "justice" and questions need to be answered about whether there was an explicit order to kill bin Laden.

"It's not justice. It's a perversion of the term. Justice means taking someone to court, finding them guilty upon evidence and sentencing them," he said.

"This man has been subject to summary execution, and what is now appearing after a good deal of disinformation from the White House is it may well have been a cold-blooded assassination."

Mr Robertson says it is an irony that the US has given bin Laden what he craved.

"The last thing he wanted was to be put on trial, to be convicted and to end his life in a prison farm in upstate New York," he said.

"What he wanted was exactly what he got - to be shot in mid-jihad and get a fast track to paradise and the Americans have given him that.

"It's an irony that it's a win-win situation for both Osama and Obama. The latter gets re-elected as president and the former gets his fast track to paradise."

The US is still debating whether to release what it says are "gruesome" photos of bin Laden's corpse.

The White House also has pictures of bin Laden's burial at sea, which it says adhered to Muslim traditions.

But Mr Robertson says there will be consequences of releasing any of the photos.

"The method of disposing his body at night without an autopsy is also questionable," he said.

"They've got a photograph but they're not releasing that for fear that it'll become iconic, rather like the picture of Che Guevara on the slab.

"But if governments kill people, that's one of the consequences."

Mr Robertson says there now needs to be an inquiry into the death.

You guys are seriously deluded so many comments about how contrails linger longer is bull shit in my opinion ,Like what are the vids on jewtube that are from maintenance crews exposing the use of chemicals via a vast array of pipelines and nozzles on wings ect ,this has been fully exposed a long time ago ,like we have jeys here coming in at 7,000ft then up at 45 degrees while the toxic shit comes out and as soon as they are on the out skirts of town they stop ? this is obviously a freemason site / jewish or whatever but I am definitely on the side of Dane Wigginton and unsubscribed

Also an amazing susnet last night…wish I’d had my camera…mandarin-orange behind purple mountains, clouds visible between peaks such that the mountains could clearly be seen one behind the other instead of appearing to be one solid flat monolith, and a massive dark blue-gray cloud shoving in from the south or southwest devouring it all. Absolutely brilliant.

REPLY:It is beautiful.  I have potesd another poem at the twostarsfor peace url.  Poems from real people show that real people want peace.  I really hope that real people from Palestine, Israel and US, and Europeans and Arabs abroad are welcome too, will join together to create Two Stars for Peace Movement worldwide.  When big demonstrations for Two Stars occur, then politicians will agree to make it happen.

Qatar probably doesn’t mind in the least that its “humanitarian aid” is being tnrued into dollars to buy more arms for jihad.  This way their hands are “clean”.The EU is basically doing the same thing without even the fig leaf cover of flour.  They just hand Hamas over 90% of its funding in cash with no accountability.  Hamas in turn spends a fraction of the money to feed Palestinians and the bulk on arms with the obvious approval of their electorate (who have no trouble demonstrating any grievance they may feel).If Palestinians were actually starving, they would have the choice of turfing the leaders who bring them such consequences through their aggression or they could choose to starve for Allah (a slower version of blowing themselves up).  However, Palestinians fed at the EU table have no motivation whatsoever to rein in Hamas.They get to eat their EU cake AND attack Israel as well under the present set up.  They are not paying the full consequences of their actions, treated by the international left like the eternal juvenile delinquents that they are.

Iynne, thank you for your patient reply. I have my rrceaesh in place and probably you have yours. So let’s look at each of them. It is also worth looking at the events all around the world when the state of israel was created. I have realized that there is no point debating on, to whom the land belongs, based on who were there first, or whether the country existed at that place before (in our case palestine). If you say that the palestine as a country never existed even until 1948, yes, that might be true, but that way even India as a country did not exist in totality until british india left it   it was more like a bunch of states ruled by many kings). So what is the yard stick one has to consider when one has to decide one’s claim on a land?  Basic tenet is to respect the people living on that land at that moment, and if possible coexist. Now if one starts looking from the period of end the ottoman empire, the arab world consisted of many tribes, and there was never an united arab world. After the fall of the ottoman empire, the land which is supposed to be palestine’s was under the control of British. Remember the arab world fought for their land to be free from the ottoman empire and this was aided by the british. Jews (atleast in majority) were never a part of this struggle! The arabs were expecting a fair deal after the war, but the british being the ruthless capitalists( their exploitation of almost the whole world is well known, especially india), agreed to the balfour declaration, which was signed due to the huge jewish lobby. So in essence israeli’s have bought the land that they are in right now, without ever fighting for it. If you think that this is ok, then I have nothing more to say. Your first war of independence came way after you have irritated the arab world due to huge migration. The demographics are very evident. Look at the drastic drop in the muslim population and a drastic increase in the jewish population.Coming to some issues that you have raised, and posted in this blog   humanitarian aid and ensuring that civilians are not hurt when bombed. I believe no person is evil by nature, it is the systematic lie propagated by the leaders that turn the population into tyrants (i also include hamas   for their violence in this. And also israel. But remember that harm israel does is much higher). Obviously you have a lot rrceaesh and money going in to develop weapons of sophisticated control, and simultaneously allowing humanitarian aid organizations just on a pretext to convince people(israeli) that you care for human life. But the bottom line is, in war lives are lost   and the scale in which israel operates, many lives are lost. You think people of nazi germany were born cruelly. Hell no! they were taken advantage of by their leader, with a systematic propaganda. Look at the number of war crimes US has committed and yet they have the largest humanitarian groups. Gone are the days of leaders like hitler or stalin, where crime was committed outright. Present day crimes are done in such a way, so as to make them appear like a norm. So do rrceaesh, not just isreal palestine issue, but a historical rrceaesh. You will come to know, that the british will easily outnumber the crimes of less than a decade of nazi germany crimes. And remember they gave the land to you. So rrceaesh on the balfour declaration thoroughly my friend, and if you haven’t seen the movie lawrence of Arabia’, please watch it.

K & N   Don’t consider iniltaliy choosing the wrong shoes   and forgetting mittens   Big Parenting Mistakes.    O my goodness . parenting is all about living a 24/7 learning curve for 18 or 25 years!  (then multiply that by the number of children you have in the end .)  doing the best you can in the moment,  fixing things (you HAD spares in the car!), learning from your mistakes and most important   forgiving yourselves for not being perfect.  (Possibly the Blessed Virgin Mary was a perfect mama, but she WAS human, so ..      and her son was human as well as divine, so undoubtedly precocious and challenging at times .)      You two are great parents   -it’s obvious to all of us who know you.

, “they based the program out of aohtner country, England.”“They routed it back to the NSA building, which was 14 stories below the ground!” Now isn’t THAT special!!!The European Parliament published a report of its investigation of Echelon in 2001, describing it as “a global system for the interception of private and commercial communications.”It was originally created to monitor the military and diplomatic communications of the Soviet Union and its Eastern Bloc allies during the Cold War in the early 1960s.Echelon was capable of interception and content inspection of telephone calls, fax, email and other data traffic globally. Get it? EVERYTHING!Former Lockheed Martin employee Margaret Newsham exposed her work with Echelon in top-secret hearings in Congress in 1988 and to a journalist in 1999. She worked for Lockheed from 1974 to 1984, mostly in Sunnyvale, but was based in 1977 at the largest listening post in the world, RAF base Menwith Hill in Yorkshire, England.She designed programs for Echelon’s global surveillance network.“As early as 1979 we could track a specific person and zoom in on his phone conversation while he was communicating,” Newsham said. “Since our satellites could, in 1984, film a postage stamp lying on the ground, it is almost impossible to imagine how all-encompassing the system must be today.”Another witness went on to state, “ Echelon analysts used a computer program capable of scanning all communications for specific key words.” “They were listening to everything,” he said. ” … They know what everybody does.” This witness went on to say his company “built satellites over there able to read the data on a dime.”Is there proof of this actually having happened and is happening right this minute? Sorry, YES! Bloomberg TV and media outlets reported, its sources confirmed, that thousands of technology, finance and manufacturing companies were exchanging “sensitive information” for “benefits” from the government. Now, add to this data mining flow all newly minted Technology giants imagine what’s REALLY goin’ on.Bloomberg’s four sources said Internet and telecommunications companies work with the National Security Agency, the Central Intelligence Agency, the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the military to “data mine” all communications of every type in all the USA of all Americans.This has morphed from Echelon, to Thin Thread, then Trail Blazer and now the latest incarnation PRISM. Pray. Amen. Feel safer now? And these Congressional phonies are upset???They knew about this all along. HAH! Bunch o lying SOB’s!!! Snoop on this!!! Join a Tea Party! Protect Our Constitution.

opening this plant will have no effect on gboall warming because its individual contribution is miniscule in comparison to the gboall problem.  But nevertheless, the plant’s contribution will be ~202 million tons of CO2 over the life of the 15 year permit that the Dep’t is considering granting it.That’s not a small contribution, but what does the law, the country, the Dep’t, and the atmosphere have to gain from a long, NEPA-driven analysis of the impacts of that much carbon from this one power plant?  So what?  There is no underlying statute that says cumulative effects cannot rise above a certain level of import, nor is there an underlying statute limiting the amount of carbon a power plant can emit (so long as it meets Clean Air Act standards, anyway).  It seems that cumulative effects are just a way of talking about direct effects, not a separate category of “effects” at all.  Because if they don’t rise to a point where they have a direct effect, our environmental law doesn’t have much to say about them.

They may then offer you the quote. Typically, their presents are deslarbie and you’ll be completely satisfied with that. They also make immediate payments in money. They don’t charge anything for towing away your junk car out of your property. As a result, it truly is the ideal option to sell a junk vehicle to such firms and get a substantial quantity in return.These firms sell spare components to automotive dealers dealing in spare components and recycle the recyclable components. They normally have their own tow trucks and can tow away your car without having any problems. The vehicle kept within the backyard has otherwise no worth besides occupying space and causing inconvenience. If the car isn’t getting used to get a long time it could be proper to dispose it off to ensure that you can employ the space elsewhere and get some further money as well. It really should be sold off as early as possible along with the longer you delay the sale the reduce could be the price tag you get..
