World leaders hail killing of Osama bin Laden

Not to sound insensitive, but were'nt the Nazi leadership tried before they were sentenced to death ?
Even in recent decades haven't tyrannical despots been tried.

Shouldn't the world leaders ask if it had been possible to capture Osama bin Laden alive and try him in a court of law ? Wouldn't that have earned greater respect ?
