Noam Chomsky, on the killing of Osama Bin Laden

Here’s what he says:

We might ask ourselves how we would be reacting if Iraqi commandos landed at George W. Bush’s compound, assassinated him, and dumped his body in the Atlantic.

I don’t agree, and don’t find many similarities, but it never hurts to have a bit of perspective.

Also read: Squashed’s response:

Chomsky, as usual, offers an interesting, divergent view. He’s wrong in an interesting way—which, if you’re going to be wrong, is the way to do it.
