Michael Moore And Elisabeth Hasselbeck Battle It Out On The View

| Filed under: TV NewsCelebrity FeudsPolitikMichael MooreElisabeth Hasselbeck

It was Michael Moore vs. Elisabeth Hasselbeck on Wednesday's broadcast of The View.

The two argued over whether or not Osama bin Laden deserved a trial over his horrifying acts on 9-11-01.

Moore said that bin Laden had been "executed" and that America had "lost something of our soul" by not giving him a fair trial for his crimes.

Elisabeth's response?

"You're telling me Osama bin Laden deserves a trial? Where? In New York City? Absolutely not! How dare — and why, because Casey Anthony's trial went so well?"

So, is she saying that only Americans deserve a fair trial??

Is Michael Moore right in saying that a man who did such terrible things deserves a trial too?

It's such a complicated and heartbreaking topic, especially so close to the 10th anniversary of 9/11.

Watch the clip above and tell us who U agree with.

  1. 1

    Elizabeth is absolutely right!!! Bin Laden wasn't a "criminal," he was a TERRORIST. He deserved nothing more than what he got!



  2. 2

    Man, I don't like Elizabeth. Not just because she is ignorantly misguided, but more because she has done NOTHING aside from 1. be on Survivor and 2. breed. That's it. Why is this idiot on The View? It's a slap in the face to intelligent women like Lisa Ling who is engaged in the actual world around her.



  3. 3

    Yes, the USA did execute Osama bin Laden. The ONLY good thing Obama did. We will execute the next terrorist too.



  4. 4

    For once I completely agree with Elisabeth. The man deserved to just die. I know it might not be the "ethical" thing to do- as he was apparently unarmed, but I find it really, REALLY hard to swallow that someone would think he deserves a trial. He was guilty, nuff said.



  5. 5

    Moorer - a far far far left extremist that will flat out lie to get is point across. Hes also a hypocrite vs a mental midget. Did the producers of Geraldo move to the view?

    /thread over



  6. 6

    I'm kind of in the middle. I don't know if the lack of a trial cause America to lose its soul, but I did feel uncomfortable with how joyful they all were about it. He did deserve to die, but there's just something about celebrating death that feels like, against human nature. It's almost like the bad guys won because they brought the good guys down to their level.



  7. 7

    i hope they fire Elizabeth right before that show is cancled.



  8. 8

    I cant believe I'm saying this, as much as I hate dumb Hasselbeck…I totally agree with her



  9. 9

    Yes. Only Americans deserve a trial the way that trials are usually conducted. I completely agree is Elisabeth. What bin Laden did was an act of war, and war criminals are subject to military trials, and by killing him we may have saved THOUSANDS of lives. I have no qualms about killing evil people.



  10. 10

    Elizabeth doesn't understand the justice system at all. Osama could have gone to the ICC, not just NY Federal Court. Michael Moore is right. USA should have been the example of developed nation with a fair and just legal system.



  11. 11

    Do not like either one of them, but dislike Michael Moore more.

    Yes Osama deserved to die and be executed. Didn't he try and use one of his wives as a human shield?



  12. 12

    #1 I completely agree with Roseygirl
    #2 why don't we put Bush and his cabinet on trial? Because lets be honest and realistic, they were in on it and just as responsible. When will we wake up? This is such an ignorant and un-educated country it's sad.



  13. 13

    he doesnt have the right to a fair trial, he wasnt executed in america and he wasnt an american citizen.



  14. 14

    Bring him in and spend MILLIONs on his trial to get life in prison. Now it will cost over 40k a year of taxpayers money to feed him and now give him better healthcare!! GREAT!!!
    Pretty screwed up that NOBODY else said anything but Liz!! Good for you and F the other pieces of shits for not saying anything…
    By niece was murdered by her boyfriend in COLD blooded murder at 21 and got 40 F&%^ING Years.. TALKING to the WRONG person here!! MY FAMILY would kill him with our bare hands if they allowed us as the family to be trial & jury for his future…..

    Re: harrisonj – You are a fool.



  16. 16

    Re: harrisonj – I get so tired of people calling this country ignorant and uneducated, if you truly feel that way take the first flight out to a more educated country!!



  17. 17

    Whatever, Bin Laden dead now, let's just forget his ass.



  18. 18

    Moore is a hypocrite for pulling out the Catholic pro-life card when talking about criminals or terrorists, yet remaining so vehemently pro-abortion.

    In case he is not aware, the Catholic church supports life from conception to natural death.



  19. 19

    Re: MVPnis – Agree or disagree with Moore, he is no mental midget or a leftist extremist (your words)….You sound like a right extremist yourself…so sad for you…also, your avatar pic is vile….you must know a thing or two about midgets yourself…



  20. 20

    Re: lecram – I agree. I feel the same as you, but I definitely think Bin Laden won. 9/11 has turned America into a fearful nation that is primarily lashing out at each other. We have become extremists too. There should never have been a 'war on terror'. 9/11 should have been handled as a crime - committed by Bin Laden and his cohorts. Instead we treated it as a war between nations and religions.



  21. 21

    I agree with lecram. I certainly wasn't sad to see bin Laden go but seeing people out cheering about it didn't seem right. It was uncomfortable.



  22. 22

    Re: Seriously1988 – People believe in PRO-CHOICE not PRO-ABORTION (your words)…please get it right before commenting. NO laws should ever govern a persons body, ever….



  23. 23

    Terrorists kill people without a trial. How are Americans any better when they do the same? Americans want the world to follow the law, but take it into their own hands whenever it suits them.

    How are they any different from the terrorists?



  24. 24

    I don't believe the story we were told is completely true, but if it were, and Osama was the culprit, he should have gotten a trial. Not because he deserved it, but because one should stay consistent. It a dangerous slippery slope when we can suddenly decide that some should get punishment without trial and some shouldn't. If pedophiles, rapists and other murderers gets a trial, so should he. And Moore is right, what are they so afraid of? That he would get away with it? Most unlikely.



  25. 25

    Re: Seriously1988 – And they support abuse of children along the way.



  26. 26

    Yes, Osama was a terrorist. Yes, he killed thousands of innocent people. Yes, he was evil and Yes, he deserved a trial. America cannot go against our own rhetoric when it is convenient for us to do so. It is written in our constitution! The right to a fair and speedy trial is a basic human right. Technically, what America did to Bin Laden is murder. Then they secretly disposed of the body at sea, claiming it is in alignment with Islamic beliefs (which is not true) Let's be honest, that could have been anybody's body. Did they show us dental records? Fingerprints? Am I glad they killed his ass…of course. However, they should have gassed him AFTER his trial. All of you morons contesting this are giving up your unalienable rights. When YOU half wits say it is okay to allow our government to break it's OWN laws and KILL someone without a trial and dump a body into the ocean. YOU ARE SAYING IT IS OKAY FOR THEM TO DO IT TO YOU.



  27. 27

    I think a trial would've been fine except that he wasn't going to come easily or willingly. He choose death by not turning himself in. He proved to be someone who would use deadly force so I think to go in full force was our only option. I don't really like Elisabeth or Michael Moore. She's wrong for saying that he didn't deserve a trial and Michael is wrong for saying we "executed" Osama. On another note I felt good when I found out he was dead but also thought it shouldn't feel good.



  28. 28

    Michael Moore should move, he clearly just hates this country.



  29. 29

    If Osama Bin Laden deserved to be executed without trial due to his acts of war what do you have to say about George W. Bush? Osama gave the orders he didn't actually fly any planes into buildings. George W. Bush gave the orders that started a war in Afghanistan and although I am by NO MEANS condoning what happened in New York it was an unbelievably awful and devastating thing, just as many (realistically more) civilians who had nothing to do with Sept 11th died in the 'war against terror". So if it is acceptable for Americans to go in and execute Bin Laden without trial, explain why the same fate shouldn't be expected/accepted for Bush?

    Also in terms of actually Michael vs Elisabeth I gave Michael 10 times more credit for at least letting her finish a thought. She kept interrupting him it made me want to smack her. How she still has a job blows my mind.



  30. 30

    Moore is the best example of the far left craziness that has taken over this country. Go Elizabeth!!!!! (It's common sense people!)



  31. 31

    Re: sanfran1 – The child doesn't have a choice…



  32. 32

    Our constitution is there for a reason. That constitution is at its best and most powerful when it's used during an INCONVENIENT time. Not when it's convenient and when it falls under what people agree with. Its most powerful use comes during just the opposite. When our values, morals and ethics can be tested. Osama Bin Laden, no matter how despicable or "evil", deserved the same justice system that we are all entitled to. If we start picking and choosing, then we live in a world no different than the values, morals and ethics of those that committed the crimes of 9/11. Hasselbeck is driven by emotion. An emotion that alot of people are driven by, and ultimately base their decisions on. Usually the people that do that are also driven by ignorance. The good part about her argument (I didn't watch it yet) is that she is free, in this country, to



  33. 33

    vocalize that ignorance in any way she chooses. And so are the millions and millions of other people that agree with her emotional response. Did Osama Bin Laden deserve a fair trial? Yes. Whether it be military or civil, he deserved a fair trial. Am I glad he was gunned down like an animal. Yes. Do we know the intricate details of what Seal Team Six went thru during the assault on the compound? No. And because of that, all arguments about Bin Ladens death are futile, because we will never know exactly what the Seals encountered during that assault. I don't listen to Moore because he's known to be very one-sided and will omit certain information that would change the validity of his argument. Hasselbeck and other ultra-conservatives do the same thing, except most of them don't understand what they're saying because of ignorance and simpleton thinking.



  34. 34

    Anyone who believes Osama Bin Laden deserved a fair trial, CLEARLY did not lose a loved one on 9/11/01, period.



  35. 35

    Okay, people need to stop comparing the war to terrorist attacks. It's called self-defense and our declaration or war was out of pride to protect our country as opposed to Osama's actions which were out of pure hatred.



  36. 36

    Re: depechegurl – So true… All these whiny libs saying he deserved a fair trial at the expense of american dollars and lives obviously did not lose a loved one. Michael Moore has no friends so he could not have lost anyone either.

  37. @v@ says – reply to this


    37

    The Nuremberg Trials held after WWII to bring justice to war criminals fulfilled a critically important purpose. The trials held up public examples of how people should NOT behave during war to the entire world; and meted out ethical and satisfactory justice accordingly along with portraying a world standard for all nations to aspire to. These trials led to the subsequent creation of the Geneva conventions, a series of treaties and protocols that established the standards of international law for the humanitarian treatment of the victims of war. By NOT bringing Osama Bin Laden to public trial through the U.N., they missed a very important opportunity to set up international treaties, protocols and standards on how to deal with rogue international terrorists that would be agreed upon and accepted by all nations of the world.



  38. 38

    I consider myself liberal but even then Bin Laden did not deserve a trial at all. He didn't give a shit about all the people that have died in 9-11 so why should we give a shit about him dying in a hail of bullets?



  39. 39

    The ironic thing is the terrorists are laughing at Moore! They don't give a flying f*** if they kill civilians or soldiers, libs or conservatives! They don't care if they get a trial or a bullet! So save the trial money and send them straight to allah and the 72 virgins! They have this little jihad with ALL Americans. They are crazy f***s that don't care what happens to them, DUH!



  40. 40

    i'm not american but what happen on september 11th was the most awful things i saw and couldn't believe it happen.maybe i didn't lose someone i loved that day but i felt the pain.like some people said yeah he did deserve a trial and the outcome would've probably been is execution like sadam because in never hide he was behind what happen that day,nazi got there trial and sorry but they kill more people than 9/11,Bush declared a war and kill civilians in Irak that had nothing to do with Ossama how do you think there family feels.Now Ossama is dead i'm glad he is.but he the end law is law no matter who you are,famous,terrorist,killer,rapist,ect…if you commit a crime you have the right to have a trial for what you did,and if execption are made because we decide who as a right or no then what happen……….



  41. 41

    I watched The View today and as usual, Hasselbitch didn't let someone with an opposing opinion get a word in. He was asked many questions by the hosts and she continuously cut him off. On 2 separate times, he declined to plug his new book just so he could answer a question and speak on an important issue. At the end of the segment, he felt he had to interrupt Whoopi's segway just so he could say what he thought.
    I like him even more now.
    He even said that although he would not vote Republican in the next Presidential election, he thought the candidates were genuine people who loved America.
    Michael Moore should be the next President. He's fair, he's committed to making the country better, and he stands up for the little guy by pulling back the rug and showing us what has been swept under it.
    Michael Moore 2012!

    Re: adg100 – heres a little fact for you, the United States Constitution is for citizens of the United States! It's laws aren't for terrorists, less we would be calling it the Constitution of the Crazy F***ing World!



  43. 43

    I think the point mr. moore is trying to make is, why are we so afraid of a trial? Because we may find out who was really to blame. Plus we may have had him for years. He may have been dead for years. The point being, how can you believe your government so blindly? They shared no proof. I for one am with michael on this one.



  44. 44

    Re: Eagle Eye – Goodness, you are so stupid …



  45. 45

    I am not qualified to answer whether bin Laden deserved an American trial or not. I'm glad he paid the ultimate price for the actions he took, but I gotta tell you, Elizabeth is not the person to make this call. I don't watch the "VIEW" as I have better things to do, but from everything I've ever read about her, she ALWAYS takes the point of view of the conservatives. I really want to know what her qualifications are to make these judgments. Wasn't she some sort of reality program participant? Shame on you B. Walters for giving this uneducated, uninformed person such a platform.
    By the way…you can purchase a dictionary at any bookstore…that is if you actually go to a bookstore…..



  46. 46

    Bin Laden got what he deserved. Some in our justice system just walk free. Whatever!



  47. 47

    Re: sanfran1 – Prostitution laws; drug laws; decency laws; etc. Laws governing the human body and what can and cannot be done to it have been around for a while now.

  49. 49

    Too bad Osama bin Laden didn't get that bitch Hasselbeck too. She is such an idiot. I can't believe she's arguing with Michael Moore over this. He dedicates many hours of his time to research our government and these so-called wars so he KNOWS what he's talking about. She only knows what she's read in the paper and therefore knows nothing! Yet she argues. What a dumbshit.



  50. 50

    Michael Moore is a very smart man, ya'll better listen up.



  51. 51

    Re: Roseygirl – You are soooo right!



  52. 52

    Mike is right - America is better than the sickos in the middle east, and EVERY criminal, be they domestic or foreign, has a right to trial. Elizabeth acts like he would have gotten off… what a psycho she is. See what happens when you let brainless wenches opine on something they know nothing about? Who gave her a platform?



  53. 53

    Moore is an idiot. As usual.



  54. 54

    Osama Bin Laden doesn't deserve shit. The only thing he deserves is to rot in hell.



  55. 55

    Regardless, Michael Moore could benefit from Michelle Obamas "lets move program"! He is a heart attack/stroke/diabetes waiting to happen! Give him some Obamacare, before he drops dead!



  56. 56

    Seriously are all Americans that gullible? Do you really think osama bin ladden was killed by the Americans?? Seriously guys i would really like to know what you guys think of all of this stuff??



  57. 57

    Elizabeth is a 100% right.
    It was the ONLY option.
    What a DANGEROUS, USELESS, PANIC FILLED TRIAL IT WOULD HAVE BEEN.
    We should have had the trial in Michael Moore's neighborhood, he would have appreciated that.
    Michael Moore is an Ultra Liberal JERK. What ever his opinion is, mine is the opposite.



  58. 58

    Why can't Elisabeth ever express her opinion without raising her voice and talking over everyone else? Even when she has valid points, she still comes across like a whiny little child instead of sounding like a woman in her thirties.



  59. 59

    i agree with michael. elizabeth is absolutely wrong. u only know from the media that osama did this. everyone deserves a trial.



  60. 60

    Re: harrisonj – i love you for that comment. i completely agree. people are so blinded by what they are told that they refuse to believe anything different. even the truth.



  61. 61

    Elisabeth has a background in reality television, she isn't known for her intelligence and this just proves it. She is brainless. Nobody has the right to take someones life.



  62. 62

    Why the heck can't someone be pro-life, and pro death penalty. I do believe in pro = choice…but can see the pro life side….as it is an innocent soon to be baby….but I sure as heck am pro death penalty!!!! If you screwed up your shot at life, by murdering others…you sure as heck deserve the death penalty….how many people did bin laden kill???? He wasn't a us citizen, and he doesn't deserve our laws….heck…as he was in captured in the Arab world….we abided by their laws….isn't this the part of the world where a rape victim gets stoned to death by getting herself raped?? And an arm for an arm? Bin laden got off too easy….should have had a long, slow painful death!!!



  63. 63

    Mario, this was obviously posted to make Elizabeth look stupid. She isn't a smart cookie but then neither are the other women of The View. I hate the show. At least she didn't walk off the show like Whoopie and Joy did when Bill O' Reily was a guest. (O'Reily might be an ass but he was invited on the show.) I used to admire Moore back in the days of Roger & Me. Now, I think he's a big fat ass who is a master manipulator: "A left-leaning critic of Moore summed up the situation very nicely: Moore's appeal lies in his giving wealthy, over-educated, whites an opportunity to laugh at working-class whites."



  64. 64

    People are so stupid to think that by killing Bin Laden lifes have been saved, he wasn't alone in the attack but was a leader. This will now be an ongoing war as his supporters will be on to America even more now, they should have looked in to getting others as well.



  65. 65

    As always Elizabeth is just so ignorant and so stupid. I can't stand to watch this. Whether people like it or not EVERY human being deserves a trial look at the Casey case!



  66. 66

    Elizabeth is RIGHT. Apx 3000 died on 9/11. FAIR TRIAL? Like putting him in prison would ever make up for all the lives lost, pain and suffering of those left behind. great minds gone, etc. Given the chance bin Laden would have been laughing at us, using our US justice system against us on the world stage as sure as they flew our planes into our own buildings…



  67. 67

    Any American who believes what Elizabeth said is the truth is as blood thirsty and hate filled at Al-Qaeda. Your souls have been purchased by Apple and sold by the oil companies. You have completely been memorised by Fox and the fascist dictatorship that is your political system. While Michel Moor is a leftist, he has a point. America is supposed to be a fair country, but it seems that when your own lambs are slaughtered, you have no problem hunting for blood. How many innocent civilians have been slaughtered in Afghanistan and Iraq in the name of oil by the American Armed forces?. Is it those people's fault they live in a country where they have been repressed by religious mercenaries and fascist nut jobs who have a vendetta against anyone who believes differently than they do?. As long as the United States is an occupying force vying for the control of other countries natural resources so we can continue to chat on our iPhones, there will be war, and bloodshed, and hatred, and IGNORANCE.



  68. 68

    I think the whole point is missed… when you don't act as yourself you loose yourself to the terrorists. Just because it was Bin Laden things should not have changed it made him more important than any other shcmuck out there. If they had have dragged him through a trial and all that BS it would have made him far less important and less of a martyr.
    Yet I realize they probably had little option to take him alive with how much they botched the take down by crashing a helicopter on his front door.



  69. 69

    Re: Miss Lady – If I was a terrorist and killed thousands of innocents in another country, you bettwe believe I would NOT expect a fair trial!



  70. 70

    OK Mario
    for those of us who didn't see the show- why didn't you tell us what the rest of the women on the View said about that- who was in agreement with Elizabeth and who agreed with Moore
    I'd be curious to know
    why only quote her…oh right….she's the conservative one that you don't like



  71. 71

    put moore on trial for making crappier documentaries and being a total moron.



  72. 72

    Eye for an eye. They should of set him on fire like he set thousands of ppl on fire in the trade center and the other places he terrorized. A bullet in the head was to good for him. I thought maybe, just maybe they got rid of Elizabitch. Guess not, so I still won't be watching until she is gone. She must have something really good on Baba Wawa and that is how she is keeping this gig on the View.



  73. 73

    Re: sanfran1
    if you are pro choice… then it stands to reason that you have to agree that abortion is
    a safe/moral/worthwhile/acceptable (you choose or add whatever adjectives suit your thinking) option
    so by that , you are therefor in agreement with abortion
    ……..
    so pro choice is pro abortion as an alternative
    ……not saying if I agree or not..just saying that being for one obviously automatically includes the other in this case



  74. 74

    CONSIDER THIS
    perhaps when weighing the risks to Americans if Bin Laden were captured and put on trial….
    (more terrorist acts killing more Americans citizens on American soil in protest would have been a pretty safe bet)
    ….it was not worth the risk in the end
    hence the order to kill him
    just sayin….. it's worth consideration



  75. 75

    Re: Roseygirl – Your comments have nothing to do with the article here.



  76. 76

    Re: smithygirl – Your so correct! Congress (the Senate & House of Reps) gave the president(Bush and whoever holds the office) the Constitutional authority(law) to defend the US citizens from terrorists, and to hunt them down, and the countries that support them and hide them. This means the Commander in Chief (president) has the legal authority to kill Bin Laden or any other terrorist, without a trial. This is not up for debate if he should have a trial or be killed it is a CONSTITUTIONAL AUTHORITY! So for all you whiney libs, get over it, it's a moot point of view. Legally any president can use our military to kill terrorists! It's all fluffy to have a different opinion, but Congress (both Dems & Republicans) gave this authority to the office of President. Why can't Moore figure this out, hmmm… maybe because he's STUPID!



  77. 77

    A trial? FOR REAL? Ugh. Moore has slipped the lead and is now just saying things to get attention, since his "filmmaking" has been exposed as nothing but garbage and scandal mongering. Osama Bin Laden on trial? Sheesh. Right, because every American killed by the Taliban got a trial. *eye roll* This is like all that "Free Mumia" crap the celebs trot out every so often. So now, we have to be nice to the terrorists? Hell to the naw.



  78. 78

    all the people who died in 911 did not deserve to die.. so no, i dont think osama deserves a trial. justice was served for all those souls lost in the attacks, and their families who lost so many loved ones.



  79. 79

    Elisabeth only believes in American values when it suits her narrowly defined purposes - like most Republicans!
    What an ass!



  80. 80

    I can't stand Elisabeth, but she's right here. He is not an American citizen; therefore, he does not deserve American rights. America grants those rights as a privilege to most outside our borders but after taking so many American lives, Osama never deserved such a privilege.

    The USA killed the puppet they created long ago…Bin Laden was created and suppoted by the USA to invade oil rich countries under the excuse of TERROR
    American people need to wake up and start protesting their goverment for spilling thousands of innocent people all around the world!!!



  84. 84

    Somebody should kidnap Moore and throw him naked in some other Country and let him fend for that Country!! He is so far left it is gross and to have to talk about our country and put this country down for something that the American people really dont need to know about!!! Let our Military take care of things and let the american people keep reading gossip BS and live their lives!!!
    These are the same people who voted for a BLACK man and voted for a man with NO experience running is own state but voted him in to run the Country!! These are the educated people you people are listening too????? This Country is in TROUBLE. Stop being followers and get a set of balls and become a LEADER!!!!



  85. 85

    Just like ALL the illegals have rights here!! LOL!! Go to there country and see if they would do the same for you!! Read the Mexican laws in Mexico it would make the hair on the back of your neck stand up!!!!



  86. 86

    He is exactly right. It isn't controversial to say he was executed it's true. If we all know he did it of course he will be found guilty, it is a matter of principle. The fact they unlawfully executed him is what has made him a martyr.



  87. 87

    Re: MVPnis – Moore is an extreme far lefty? lol you need to get out more…

    Wish your mom hadn't "bred."



  90. 90

    You know I don't know if he deserved a trial or not.. but Ellizabeth is a kunt.. she only cares about her right wing views and interrupts and gets loud with people.. why do people take this stuck up, hateful bitch seriously??? She is just some dumb bitch from a FUCKING REALITY SHOW! All she does is give her opinion emotionally, at least Moore does research, while this rude twat, just shouts and interrupts when people have a different opinion than her.. fuck her and the producers that let that hateful, stupid bitch talk publicly…



  91. 91

    Moore is an IDIOT. You and no other person should ever write anything he says. Ever.



  92. 92

    1. bin Laden is not an American citizen, so the Constitution means nothing in regards to him, just as a fair constitution meant nothing to him.

    2. He was killed as part of a firefight during a military operation, not captured and then executed later. There is no way to guarantee the capture of a person alive. Of course there were shoot on sight orders, but still…

    Re: smart cookie 1 – The constitution of the U.S. doesn't apply outside of the U.S. nor inside other countries, unless the other nation involved allows it.

    How many Americans were executed on 9/11? America executes 1 extreme terrorist and Moore wants to bitch about it? He is such a nut-job.

    Re: rosebud99 – @ 20 - You hit the nail right on the head with this comment. Very insightful. Too many people feel the way you described and it's devastating.

    Re: bunurse – @29, I completely agree with your view on Elisabeth interrupting Michael. It PEEVES my soul when people can't control themselves enough during a debate to not let the other person get their point across. Not only is it disrespectful, it halts an intelligent response due to lack of assimilation.

    E. Hasslebeck needs to learn how the Justice system is supposed to work here in the U.S. I agree that Bin Laden probably should have been killed. I also think that we should have had a trial for him in order to find him guilty. He has said he did it, so you have to figure he is guilty. But, under our constitution? He did deserve a trial. Having not had that. I do believe that they ( The US ) was right in giving Bin Laden a burial at sea. This way? He wouldn't have a place where he could become a martar of sorts. The families of 9/11 sure wouldn't deserve that.But I do believe that Michael Moore is right. E. Hasslebeck always thinks she is right about everything. Most of the time? She is not.

    Re: Sharleigh – I do agree with the rest of you that say she always interrupts people with her point of view. That is very tiresome, and if it weren't for Whopie, Joy and Barbara Walters? I wouldn't have watched the show after Rosie left, because little Mrs Hasslebeck never liked Rosie McDonnell who has always done good things for children. But, when she was on the View? E Hasslebeck always made it a point it seemed like to single her out for a big argument. Which led Rosie to being fired, gone or whatever happened. Too Bad Lisa Ling wasn't still there. Or Even Meredith Viera. Anyone would be better than E Hasslebeck with her interruptions of " She is always right"!

    Re: littlemissfob – And how people lost their lives during WW2? But still, as @v@ pointed out, there were trails. Jesus, this isn't the first or only time many lives were lost at the hands of some fundamentalist loon with a following. It doesn't matter if your name is Bin Laden, Idi Amin, Mugabe, Saddam Hussein, Himmler or Gaddafi and people consider you to be 'worse' than your common criminal, laws apply to everyone, they're in place for a reason. Just because one pissed you off more or caused your people more grief than another does not mean you or that people should take matters into their own hands. And @v@, I completely agree, much more good could have come from this.
