SILLY EURO...:

Was Bin Laden's Killing Legal? (Thomas Darnst├Ądt, 5/04/11, Der Spiegel)

What is just about killing a feared terrorist in his home in the middle of Pakistan? For the families of the victims of the 9/11 attacks, and for patriotic Americans who saw their grand nation challenged by a band of criminals, the answer might be simple. But international law experts, who have been grappling with the question of the legal status of the US-led war on terror for years, find Obama's pithy words on Sunday night more problematic.

...he answers to Americans, not to international law experts.
