UK: Would-be Labour leader calls death of Osama bin Laden a ‘tragedy’

Jeremy Corbyn has come under fire for saying it was a “tragedy” that Osama bin Laden was killed by the United States rather than being put on trial.

The Labour leadership frontrunner made the remarks shortly after the 2012 special forces raid on the Al-Qaeda chief’s Pakistan compound in which he and four others were shot dead.

In an interview for Iranian television, he suggested the assassination of the September 11 attacks’ mastermind would result in deeper unrest.

    This asshole could always visit his dream lover in the sea, why I’d even help him rendezvous with his lover.

  • There is only one tragedy.

    Osama should have been shot with pork dipped bullets.

    And to really finish off the asshole he should have been fed to pigs.

    And the British fools who have lost their balls should shut the f*ck up.

      This idiot will never have power, and is not worth wasting a single mind-second upon.

        Don’t count on it.

    I guess he’s going for the jihad vote.

      He is going after the mass-murderer vote.

    The only tragedy is thinking that killing one guy actually accomplished anything when it’s the ideology that’s the problem.

  • David Murrell

    Corbyn made that statement since he supports Islamists murdering innocent civilians.

    It appears that the Labour Party has a death wish.

    He’s right. He should have been put on trial, publicly. Then the whole world could have seen Islam for what it is, just like the Nuremberg trials.
