Osama and Obama

Abbotabad will open, not a can of worms, but a barrel of venomous serpents. A deluge of awkward questions will follow. The picture, shorn of all verbiage shows an unarmed middle-aged man shot to death with admittedly only his wife resisting, while other wives and a dozen children were mute spectators. It is irrelevant that his head had a price-tag of $ 25 million, allegedly for a crime that he was never formally charged with, tried or convicted in a court of law. But is it irrelevant, the killers were one nationality, came from another country and completed their 'contract/supari' in a third? What happened to the “sanctity of national boundaries”? Where is the “sovereignty of independent states” that the 'civilized' countries love to teach? Extra-judicial killings are nothing new. The young puppy has been doing it with impunity for years. Now the tail is wagging the dog!
