The Obama administration responded to allegations made yesterday by the sons of Osama bin Laden that the U.S. had violated legal norms in killing him, saying the United Nations charter allows for a country’s self-defense.

The U.S. challenged criticisms written by Omar Osama bin Laden in a statement released to the New York Times. The son, who wrote that he disagreed with his father’s “ways,” said the U.S. military team that raided his father’s compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan, should have arrested bin Laden, who was unarmed, and sent him to trial. He cited the example of trials for former Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein and Serbian President Slobodan Milosevic.

“We maintain that arbitrary killing is not a solution to political problems” and justice must be done, the statement said. In addition to violating international law, the U.S. action contradicted the American right to a fair trial, the younger bin Laden wrote, adding that his father was “summarily executed.”

The Obama administration responded that al-Qaeda had declared war on the U.S. and took pride in killing Americans. The U.S. deemed the terrorist leader a combatant, a U.S. official said on condition of anonymity. The official, who wasn’t authorized to be named, cited Article 51 of the UN charter as guaranteeing a nation’s inherent right to self- defense.
