What he's suggesting is that the US should lead by example while it still finds itself in a global leadership role.

To quote Captain Beefheart:

"That's right"

Thanks, wracket.

But not just the US. All countries that come from a liberal, democratic tradition. I was predictably disappointed by my country's PM who "welcomed" the death of OBL. We have a duty to stick to our own principles and promote an ethical way of life to others, especially if we want that from them.
So Rael_, the US didn't start the bad behaviour, nor does it have a monopoly on it but it does set some kind of precedent, norm or guideline by performing assassinations. Don't you agree?
