I don't even think of him as a monster. He was an enemy and killing him may be justifiable but his biggest crime was being on the "other side". Paul Tibbets probably killed more innocent people.

Blaming an individual for an event only made possible by the work and direction of tens of thousands is a bit of a cheap shot.

Tibbets wasn't the leader like Osama was, it's not a valid comparison.
"I was only following orders," is not a valid excuse. My point is that bin Laden was just another enemy. There's no need to embellish how evil he was.
