Michael Moore: America lost its soul in killing Bin Laden or something

“We’ve lost something of our soul here in this country,” Moore argued, by not trying bin Laden publicly. “Maybe I’m just an old-school American who believes in our judicial system,” Moore said (to much laughter from those who find him distasteful on the right, one must imagine), but “we’re better than them, we don’t just operate in an uncivilized way the way they did on 9/11.” He then went further to note that those who did not want trials for terrorists “hate what we stand for… you hate what the Constitution stands for.” Morgan challenged this premise– as well as his analogy to the Nuremburg trials– by noting that it would not be out of the ordinary for the Navy SEALs to assume that bin Laden was armed, shoot first, and ask questions later, which Moore also seemed fine with, if only they would be forthright about it. “I’m not sensing,” Morgan countered, “that they didn’t admit they killed him.”
