I think the whole thing about OBL getting a trial or not is not a decision based on fairness or justice, but rather one with concern about what he symbolizes. There'd be riots from his followers, there'd be toothless teabaggers clamoring to get on TV and wave their pitchforks, Sarah Palin would call the whole exercise "redynent"... No one wants to see that.

It's a big fucking mess, of course it is. People from around the world, from across the many political spectrums are debating the issues surrounding his death, surrounding the covert operation, surrounding the celebrations which followed, surrounding the burial at sea, etc... The way it went down was the closest thing possible to a quick and clean summation of the whole deal. Practically, it was for the best.
Some people have a fear of snakes. That was a somewhat rational fear. And you could do something about it at least. Stay away from long grass and nature documentaries. Easy. Others have a fear of heights. That was manageable too. Avoid tall ladders. But how do you cope when your fear is something you can’t avoid? That you have no hope of staying away from? Being afraid of the sky, where are you going to go?
