According to the Constitution, did Osama Bin Laden deserve a trial?

The Bill of Rights clearly states that people have a right to a quick and public trial, does that apply to Bin Laden and other terrorists?

I am unwilling to pick on. Its more complex than that. We have this "No employee of the United States Government shall engage in, or conspire to engage in, political assassination". There is NO doubt that we broke that, but constitutional rights? Not really.

No not by constitutional standards, by human standards yes he deserved a trial.

My interpretation of the Constitution is not just laws that apply to U.S. Citizens, but American values that apply to all the acts of the United States.
