If you recall, Somalia offered the Clinton administration OBL on a silver platter, but were turned down because they couldn't make a criminal case. (I believe that they made the offer twice.)

Any Democrat will tell you that it is better that 3,000 civilians die in a collapsing building than we abrogate the "rights" of a single terrorist.
There was a story from early in the war, after 9/11. It may be true, or not. Perhaps someone can tell me if they know. They (US military) had a car under observation at night and thought that OBL was in it. A request was made to engage the target. It was discussed at headquarters and they decided that it was against the law to assonate a foreign leader. They withheld permission.
