Hone, Hone, Hone

OK, so I know Hone Harawira likes to play the rebel, but praising Osama bin Laden as a freedom fighter? For fuck's sake, the man was a mass-murderer. It was wrong to execute him without trial, and wrong to take pleasure in his death, but that doesn't mean anyone should delude themselves that he was some sort of noble figure. There is no nobility in killing people, no matter what your cause. Killers should be shunned and despised, not celebrated as heroes.
