He was a legitimate enemy combatant therefore a legitimate target. Besides that, I could not care less what the reasons were, he's dead and that is a good thing....both for the USA and Iran.

He couldn't have been an "enemy combatant" unless the US was at war with Iran. Are we at war with Iran?

The seizure of the U.S. embassy in 1979 by Iran was a universally recognized act of war. The Iranians never apologized or made any kind of amends for that.

Okay. Looks like we have another poster who believes that we are at war with Iran.
