Jill Stein: ‘I Would Not Have Assassinated Osama Bin Laden’

The Green Party’s Jill Stein said on Sunday that she would not have assassinated Osama bin Laden.

The Hill reports:

Stein told reporters in Iowa that she’d have brought him to justice instead, according to the Des Moines Register.

“I think assassinations … they’re against international law to start with and to that effect, I think I would not have assassinated Osama bin Laden but would have captured him and brought him to trial,” Stein said.

During a rally in Iowa following her comments, Stein referred to both Republican Donald Trumpand Democrat Hillary Clinton as “war mongers.”

She said the 9/11 attacks “provided a pretext for the wrong wars, which have only gotten us into more trouble.”

Stein promised a “targeted” approach to tracking down terrorists and bringing them to justice for crimes against humanity if elected.
