What Jeremy Corbyn actually said about Bin Laden's death

 Always good to have the facts

Lets get it straight, Jeremy Corbyn DID NOT say 

"The death of Osama Bin Laden was a tragedy"


David Cameron has spouted this mis-information so much now I think he believes it.

But here's the proof

What he said
‘There was no attempt whatsoever that I can see to arrest him, to put him on trial, to go through that process. ‘This was an assassination attempt, and is yet another tragedy, upon a tragedy, upon a tragedy. The World Trade Centre was a tragedy, the attack on Afghanistan was a tragedy, the war in Iraq was a tragedy. Tens of thousands of people have died. Torture has come back on to the world stage, been canonised virtually into law by Guantanamo and Bagram.’
‘Can’t we learn some lessons over this?’

Even Boris Johnson back in 2001 was of the opinion that Bin Laden should be put on trial.

‘British soldiers are not taught to murder unarmed people in the act of surrendering.
‘Bin Laden should be put on trial; not in Britain, but in the place where he organised the biggest and most terrible of his massacres, New York.
‘He should be put on trial, because a trial would be the profoundest and most eloquent statement of the difference between our values and his. He wanted to kill as many innocent people as he could.
‘We want justice.’

BUT .......

David Cameron in his Party speech actually did say ....

And here's the proof

Now obviously the Cameron video has been started at the right point and ended at the right point just to capture the quote, but if youll forgive me, thats not the point. The point is the Tories couldnt even do that with what Corbyn said, because he didnt actually say it. They actually had to mis-quote, mis-inform and totally re-arrange what he ACTUALLY SAID to come up with the quote.....

So to date the only party leader to have actually said  "The death of Osama Bin Laden was a tragedy" Is David Cameron .... FACT!
