Rejoicing in the death of a murderer is not exactly a Christian thing to do. But that does not mean, bad people should be given free reign to continue doing bad things. Bad people need to be stopped, and doing this is a grim and sombre task. Once done, we should only feel pleased that the bastard is gone, but not at the price we had to pay in order to do it. Thou shalt not kill is an ideological statement, without conditions. It may not be realistic to uphold it in all circumstances, that is the nature of the "beast". See, there's our ideals, and there's the problems that reality brings to us, when we are directly involved and have no choice but to act.
I, like you am fortunate. I was not directly involved and did not have to act. Therefore it's easy for me to sit on the fence and say, OBL was an evil man and was killed by other evil men. Evil, not because of the things they are forced to do in dire circumstances, but because of the things they chose to do by their own free will.
