Is it a snake being beheaded, or a hydra?

Even if killing this one man is in itself a good thing, the strings of operations that his death is one part of, is responsible for thousands of innocent people killed simply for being in proximity. That's not right, and their deaths only fuel more 'insurgents' and it is at that point that people no longer believe these killings are justified. It is perfectly reasonable to be angry at the U.S. killing civilians who have nothing to do with 9/11, and no amount of "but Osama was EVIL" will change that. Nor will it ever justify the civilian death toll.

Peoples indifference and even condemnation of this is not appalling if you consider at least a bit of context.
