On the 2nd of May 2011 the President of the United States addressed his nation to inform the people that the USA's most wanted was dead after a decade of searching.

A US military team entered a foreign country with (allegedly) neither permission nor authority from that country's government. Despite having no jurisdiction they then invaded someone's home, shot the people trying to defend it; and then executed someone who has never stood trial and thus never been convicted in a court of law.

The verdict from the President - "Justice has been done".

[Update from the BBC with Cameron's speech to the House

"He was he man who was responsible for 9-11"
No he was the man who claimed responsibility for 9-11; it would be up to a court of law to state that he was indeed responsible
"He was a man who posed as a leader of Muslims but was actually a mass-murderer of Muslims."
Yes? Those two points aren't contradictory. I could claim myself to be a leader of Christians (meaning Roman Catholics) and kill large groups of Christians (meaning Protestants). Either Cameron doesn't understand the difference or he's just playing up to the House.
"and of course there is no punishment at our disposal that can remotely fit the many appalling crimes for which he was responsible"
Again - court of law.

Believe me I'm not defending this piece of scum, but I get worried when these sorts of things are bandied about]
