"The most important day in Obama's presidency" is one marked by a complete LACK of transparency, where the citizens of a "republic" are supposed to accept on faith an ever-shifting narrative from a ruling class (with a very poor history of being honest in words and deeds) about the assassination of unarmed "public enemy #1."

... although the evidence supporting "public enemy #1"'s crimes also lacks transparency...

These are hardly the ideal conditions for healthy representative government.

From http://www.armytimes.com/news/2012/03/ap-bin-... :
Ten months after that electrifying covert mission, an administration that has pledged to be the most transparent in American history is refusing to release documents about it under the Freedom of Information Act. The records could provide insights into how bin Laden died, how the U.S. verified his identity and how it decided to bury him at sea, as well as photographs taken during and after the May 2011 raid on his compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan.

Government officials have openly discussed details of the mission in speeches, interviews and television appearances, but the administration wonít disclose records that would confirm their narrative of that fateful night. The Obama administration has not even said where in Washingtonís bureaucracy all the documents might be stored.

....

Citing the [Freedom of Information Act] law, The Associated Press asked for files about the raid in more than 20 separate requests, mostly submitted the day after bin Ladenís death. The Pentagon told AP this month it could not locate any photographs or video taken during the raid or showing bin Ladenís body. It also said it could not find any images of bin Ladenís body on the Navy aircraft carrier where the al-Qaida leaderís body was taken.

The Pentagon said it could not find any death certificate, autopsy report or results of DNA identification tests for bin Laden, or any pre-raid materials discussing how the government planned to dispose of bin Ladenís body if he were killed. It said it searched files at the Pentagon, U.S. Special Operations Command in Tampa, Fla., and the Navy command in San Diego that controls the aircraft carrier Carl Vinson, used in the mission

Also of significance is this statement, from FBI Chief of Investigative Publicity Rex Tomb from June 2006:

"The reason why 9/11 is not mentioned on Osama bin Laden's Most Wanted page is because the FBI has no hard evidence connecting bin Laden to 9/11."

By the way, the absence of a reference to 9/11 attack persisted on bin Laden's "Most Wanted" profile right up until the day in which he was allegedly terminated.

AND, not long after the termination of alleged "Evildoer #1", our government drops all charges against him... because, you know, what's the point of proving someone's guilt when shooting them is so much easier?

I have no doubt this was the most important day...
After all what does he have it to compare to....
The day with the help of congress he used parlimetry proceedure tricks to get his healthcare passed...
Or the day the deficit rose to a higher point than any other president in history....
Or the day when he had to announce his "shovel ready jobs" were really not shovel ready....
Or the day he.....
You get my point

So what crime was Osama tried and CONVICTED of??

Does our government now just names 'someone'(anyone) as being responsible for doing something bad and then eliminate them?

It never was PROVEN that Osama was responsible for 911.

He was NAMED as being responsible, but nothing was ever PROVEN.
