The Case For Letting Bin Laden Go

Does anyone else think it's futile to continue trying to hunt down Usama bin Laden?

Is it worth taking countless more innocent lives just for the military dick-waving parade that will ensue after we capture him? How much money is it really worth spending to try to find him? What if he isn't even alive?

Even if we catch him, what the hell are we going to do with him? Execute him? He would then just become a martyr/hero type for the Middle East.

What would catching him prove? It wouldn't really accomplish anything. It would make Americans feel like they've finally kicked some Muslim ass, but that's about it.

So who cares?

Indeed. It's sort of like Sadaam's capture. As nice as it was to hear that monster's neck snap in the noose, it was not worth all the lives and damage caused by the invasion.
