“Why the hell did we ditch the body and respect his religion when people lay there for months rotting.
We should have brought it back to the US and then let people see him and then ditch the body where the sharks are.”

My guess: I’d say he wanted to subdue the celebration and frustrate our desire to see osama’s cold, dead body. Probably nothing more than that. Well, and the fact that barama just flat doesn’t understand or empathize with America and Americans.

Suzy I think you nailed it spot on on that last line

I received a message stating that there was a massive division within the white house Hillary , Panetta wanted to take him out but Jarreett, bozo etc ddi not want to’

Seems this went on for some time and then there was a what you call a coup within and it forced obama’s hand.

I’m not releasing the message as I ma not sure if the person hwo sent it would want me to but it does seem to make sense on how things went

Bush knew that the people of Iraq and here had to see the dead bodies for evidence but obama does not plus he gives the order to give him a muslim service, we kill him and then pay respects this is totally unacceptable and if anyone thinks this was right then they need their head testing or go and join code pink IMHO

again suzy you hit it

It was never anything but a line of bull, and it was never a reasonable conclusion to hold. Had it been, none of the professionals would have continued to look for him.

Professionals? If you mean black ops, then they would have been operating in something called “secrecy”. Which means that whether Obama was alive or not, or where he was, would have been something kept obscure.

Besides, I doubt that until a real DNA match was done, nobody was really 100% certain, eh?

There’s just one problem with the Tora Bora bull, the same as it ever has been — there’s no evidence. It’s never been anything but wishful thinking.

Whoda thunk Afghanistan was the country with a lab like that? Now how about that autopsy, x-ray and other forensic matching?

Fast Forensic Test Can Match Suspects' DNA With Crime Samples in Four Hours

As to the autopsy and x-rays, I'd venture to say that any US Aircraft Carrier has better medical facilities than any hospital in the region. Don't doubt that the guy was sliced and diced, x-rayed and photos up the kazoo before he was feed to the sharks --- with full Islamic ritual of course.

DNA evidence is emminantly transient. Very easy to alter or impose on any forensic scene.You otta know that.

The body should have been forensically verified also by our Allies and instead was deep sixed before it was cold?

NATO nations spent millions hunting for OBL, and they didn’t even get a cursory nod? What a laugh.

I think the scam was organized in Pakistan with Obamas covert Muslim Brotherhood back door help. THe US military was fed false intel and killed a OBL double who was a volunteer martyr. Sadamm Hussein had 5 surgically altered doubles and he was a piker compared to OSB.Sorry, IMHO, the US military and America have been had, royally.

Taqiya. And OBL is kicking back somewhere in the Hindu Kush, not another worry in the world.NICE GRIFT, eh?

If they autopsied him then the whole “handling his body with respect” is a complete farce. If they didn’t then the intelligence/identification aspect is a total farce.

You are going to believe in a conspiracy regardless of any evidence.

If you ever meet a Navy SEAL, why don't you tell him all about this scam.

Exactly. Tangos of OBL's prominence are not shuffled off with a few verses of the Koran on a US ship of the line. Thats campaign fodder.Complete autopsy with NATO reps in attendence and redundant DNA tests done by USA and its allies were warranted.That did not happen.

It was a grift.

And thise who say this are called kooks when in fact the Obama administration was "insisting" on proof of death witghout bombing the compound in march. There is no genuine "proof of death." We are supposed to believe what we are told and go home and shut up like children after millions of tax payer dollars were spent to hunt OBL down? WHAT A LAUGH!THe American people deserved better.

Barry's 2012 campaign platform should be interesting all right. Vote for me because I didn't do what I said in 2008, as in closing GITMO, trying the terrorists in civilian courts, leaving Iraq, winding down Afghanistan, working with other governments. Heck, I even violated the territorial integrity of Afghanistan by sending troops in to kill OBL without their permission!

Now won't even media-addled voters be able to figure out that sounds a lot more like Bush than Obama ver.2008?

For me it is not myself or Americans that need to be convinced that bin Laden is dead but I agree that we deserve the rock solid evidence. It is because the Muslim world will use any doubts about it to mythologize him. Many of the nuttiest will claim he is alive no matter what. That doesn't matter. What matters is the ability to clarify how nutty they are by contrasting their insanity with the bright light of incontrovertible evidence.

It was done with every other raghead HVT that has been killed for exactly that reason.

You are telling me that they never do an autopsy in Islamic countries? Or is that just your guess?

Muslims strive to bury the deceased as soon as possible after death, avoiding the need for embalming or otherwise disturbing the body of the deceased. An autopsy may be performed, if necessary, but should be done with the utmost respect for the dead.

Washing and Shrouding
In preparation for burial, the family or other members of the community will wash and shroud the body. (If the deceased was killed as a martyr, this step is not performed; martyrs are buried in the clothes they died in.) The deceased will be washed respectfully, with clean and scented water, in a manner similar to how Muslims make ablutions for prayer. The body will then be wrapped in sheets of clean, white cloth (called the kafan).

Source: Islamic Funeral Rites

Apparently, if they want to consider this mad dog POS a 'martyr" we went well above and beyond what's called for in their cult by even washing his rotten corpse and wasting a perfectly good sheet before feeding him to the sharks.

I suspect that OBL has actually been dead since Tora Bora. It was politically necessary to keep him “alive” because the left including the press had cast the entire effort as an attempt to kill OBL and his demise would bring a great trumpeting of “The War Is Over! We Must Bring The Troops Home!” that would have made further prosecution of the campaigns difficult if not impossible. The war was never about “getting Osama.” No major nation has ever waged or will ever wage a war to kill one man. I see it as possible that OBL is “killed” now because the Kenyan has decided to pull the plug on our defense in the Islamic War.

I am counting on that proclivity to be without exceptions. The other possibility is that OBL was “got” without checking with Washington first or contrary to an understood if not explicit order. That does not seem likely in a conflict where soldiers have to check with the lawyers before they pull the trigger. My real feeling about all this is that whatever comes from Washington and this administration is NOT TRUE. I have seen in the press the reactions I had anticipated. The drumbeat is begun to GET OUT NOW because OBL was the entire objective and the total reason for the war. In one swoop we eliminate Islamic terrorism from the popular consciousness and turn the Islamists into odd neighbors but benign. Hell, this whole Lybia thing seems to be mostly in support of the Jihadists and Osamanites against a tyrant who was no threat to us. With OBL dead it is okay for the Islamist president to support the Jihad openly.
