A candid answer from Biden

Washington (CNN) - After another round of budget talks with Hill leaders Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden had this exchange with a reporter (picture above):

Question: "Bin Laden's sons say the killing was illegal, what do you say?"

Biden sarcastically: "You're kidding?"

    Hilarious. I am glad they exterminated the vermin when Obama was in office otherwise Bush would have been excoriated. It would have been we invaded a soverign country and we killed an unarmed man. We will take it any way we can get it and you and rid the rest of the bil laden vermin/sons anytime and anywhere.

    Good for Vice President Biden. The attacks which killed more than 2500 people were not legal. Did his sons talk about thleir father's involvement in those killings. Osama Bin Laden made choices when he helped plan the attacks on the World Trade Center, the Pentagon and the plane which went down in PA.

    There is no doubt that many things are unfair in this world. However, OBL ordered the attacks which killed so many people on Sept.11. His involvement made him a fugitive from justice. He continued to made declarations against this country. The President made the decision to bring justice to OBL's door. No one wants to see anyone killed but the magnitude of the crimes made OBL a fugitive.

    I agree with Joe , I would venture a bit further , I say that hijacking planes to kill thousands was iillegal! The crime was much worse than the punishment in this case.
