Dalai Lama is OK With Taking Out bin Laden

In response to a question during a speaking engagement regarding bin Laden, the DL said, "Forgiveness doesn't mean forget what happened. … If something is serious and it is necessary to take counter-measures, you have to take counter-measures."

OBL really rubbed people the wrong way didn't he?

I find it interesting that Stewart/Colbert, Andrew Sullivam, Ed Brayton, Maddow and Lawrence O' Donnell and now the Dailai Lama thought it was necessary, while the likes of Wonkette, PZ Myers, Micheal Moore and a host of assorted right-wing nuts did not.

I can also report from circles I travel in that it was a popular decision with a broad swath of college students and blue-collar folks.

'Nuf said for me.
