During her first campaign appearance in Iowa, Green Party candidate Dr. Jill Stein told a rally of 150 that she wouldn’t have assassinated Osama Bin Laden on the 15th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks.
“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.
“What we should have done is declare this a crime against humanity and pursued it, pursued the attackers and gotten the intelligence about who was behind this,” she said.
And you thought Gary Johnson’s “Aleppo” gaffe was bad.
Twitter points out that this isn’t the first time Stein has made controversial remarks about 9/11:
Crackpot Jill Stein is a 9/11 truther. https://t.co/0a1QA5kILR

When you ask why we don't have a third party in the US remember that Gary Johnson didn't know what Aleppo was & Jill Stein is a truther now.

Let's face it, Jill Stein probably doesn't know what Syria is
