Most of the commenters ‘get it:’
Comment 1: Obama didn’t order the killing of bin Laden. It was just too late for him to recall the operation… they had to drag him from the golf course to witness the event.
Comment 2: Â Unfortunately Spain today has more than its fair share of politically motivated lawyers.
The publicity seeking Fiol is following in the footsteps of Baltasar GarzÃ³n, the well-known left-wing troublemaker and “judge” who is presently facing trials for exceeding his judicial powers, illegally taping confidential discussions between defendants and their lawyers and also corruption.
Interestingly GarzÃ³n, although suspended as a judge in Spain, is currently working as a “consultant” at the International Criminal Court in the Hague, the very court where Fiol has lodged his ludicrous accusations against Obama.
Daniel Fiol lodged a written complaint at the International Criminal Court accusing the US president of breaching the Geneva Convention.
Navy Seals acting on Mr Obama’s orders shot the al-Qaeda leader dead on May 2 after storming his compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan.
In his written complaint, the Majorca-based lawyer said bin Laden should have been “pursued, arrested, tried and convicted” on behalf of “the victims of some terrible and appalling atrocities”. The killing of bin Laden was even worse as it took place in foreign territory, Pakistan, without the permission of that government, he said.
“I am not being paid by al-Qaeda,” Mr Fiol joked.
Former prime minister Tony Blair has said he would not have hesitated to order the assassination of bin Laden if the decision had been his.
