A United States presidential aspirant from the Green Party says it wasn’t right that Osama bin Laden was assassinated by the U.S. Navy Seals, adding she would have let him live, if she were the president.
Bin Laden was killed by Navy SEALs in Pakistan on May 2, 2011.
As the political campaigns heat up America with Hillary Clinton and Donald J. Trump at the front seat, Green Party representative Jill Stein says the raid on Osama that was ordered by President Obama and backed by then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, has done more harm than good.
“I think assassinations . . . they’re against international law to start with and to that effect, I think I would not have assassinated Osama bin Laden but would have captured him and brought him to trial,” Stein told The Des Moines Register in a weekend interview.
The political aspirant also slammed Clinton and Donald Trump as “warmongers.”
In her opinion, “the 9/11 attacks ‘provided a pretext for the wrong wars, which have only gotten us into more trouble,'” the New York Post reported.
Stein made the statements while campaigning in a front of 150 people at the Iowa state Capitol on Sunday.
