was OBL in the al Qaeda Navy? Why was he bestowed the honor of a burial at sea? Don’t they usually carve up and inspect brains of sociopaths like him? If the news is true, great. But a couple of things here don’t pass the smell test.

“U.S. officials told CBS News that bin Laden’s body would be handled in accordance with Muslim traditions”

1) but I thought OBL didn’t represent Islam? So why is he treated like a muslim?
2) we waste the bastard by loading him up with lead but now we have to be all nice and respectful?
3) OBL’s power is that he is a symbol to inspire recruits. Not a single muslim/arab will believe that the US really killed him.
4) our military gave Obama the biggest political gift any politician could ever hope for. All he had to do was sign the authorization and not botch it up afterwards. Well, he somehow managed to botch it up.

Heaven forbid we don't place muslim sensibilities before our own interests.

Taking bets that this "burial" was recorded and will at some time, be released to show "our" (read: The Islamist supporter/appeaser Community Organizer in Chief) proper respect he was shown.

What a bunch of PC, Moonbats!

Heck, I bet they even recorded his remains being washed in accordance with Islamic tradition

None of this can be kept secret for very long and someone who was aboard that ship will as soon as they hit a port, leak the details.

Likewise, I don't doubt that perhaps not right away, but in the not too distant future, one of the Seals will let it be known what exactly happened on this raid.

Yep, the Fascist Dear Leader can gloat and take credit for this ops, but it won't endear him to his base; will piss off his buds (Arab Street) and will not help him towards his re-election.

This is odd because on the news programs here in India, they’re saying that OBL’s body was flown to Afghanistan, and buried there.

Osama can now be reincarnated as the 12th imam! /s

Obama can claim what ever he wants but his word is no good.

Without proof that Osama is dead and staying dead, I don't have to believe anything he says.

"Shut your face! Mind your place!" Trust "Dear Leader!"

I can't imagine no country would take the body. He has family in Saudi Arabia.

Imagine if Bush had come out, said "we killed Osama," "we got the body" and then... wait... we dumped the body at sea. Heads would've exploded.

They should rename the BLT sandwich the OBN sandwich.

Some things are beyond belief, not many but some. This one is singular.

No forensic id will be available soon from this event just as it was when the AF dropped a Daisy Cutter on Tora Bora ten years back.

Just an aside....when has our Feckless Leader ever found time to make a speech so soon, so quickly, so choreographed?

Obama is either a moron or a liar.

Actually he is both.

No body, no proof.

The muzzies behead innocent civilians and Hussein is so busy respecting islamic law that we still dont have a godammned picture almost 24 hours later.

I guess he will wait another year or two to release them.

“U.S. officials told CBS News that bin Laden’s body would be handled in accordance with Muslim traditions, which include strict rules on burial taking place within 24 hours after death.”

Why, oh why? Why are they being so ridiculous? Respect the traditions with respect to such a monster? If Pakistanis kill a Western leader, would they bury him according to Christian traditions?

Then roast the pig and enjoy. Leave the dead bin laden to rot in the sun.

There was a million things that could have been done with his body and not one required another country take his body.

ANY reasonable person would believe that if Osama, excuse me, Obama is not at leaset a Muzzie sympathezier, he was and is a card carrying Muzzie.

It explains Libya and Egypt, both "patriots" are composed of radical Muslims, Egypt Muslim Brotherhood, Libya AL Qaeda which wants to kill you and your family.

We know they wouldn't. And Osama's death will trigger violent reaction in the Arab street, maybe ours too.

Obama is hoping by showing such 'post respect' it will tamp down that reaction. Osama is a hero in throughout the Middle East. They sell his likeness on t-shirts etc. as souvenirs. I'll never forget the picture of the kid wearing just such a shirt in the midst of the tsunami/earthquake rubble...

As far as buried at sea, I sure hope so. This leaves the al-queda supporters no grave to visit, no body to dig up etc.

Hopefully the “handled with Islamic tradition” and “burial at sea” is Navy speak for “ We all pissed on the body while jamming a can of Spam in his piehole and then dumped it over the fantail with the rest of the trash”.

Correct me if I’m wrong but I don’t recall other terrorists getting this “special” treatment. I don’t know, I just don’t believe anything when it comes to this regime.

I give them a lot of credit for dumping his body at sea. I also wonder if they asked him if he wanted to surrender before or after shooting him in the face? ;-)

I thought he was killed almost a week ago and his death wasn’t announced until his DNA was verified. Where’s the photo of his cadaver?

Yep, an English officer did just that once and used pig fat to lube their bullets. Locals did not seem to like that much.

Where he is now he won't need a wrap.

Just an aside....when has our Feckless Leader ever found time to make a speech so soon, so quickly, so choreographed?

For that matter, when has Beloved Leader EVER given a presentation with only ONE teleprompter?

I couldn't believe it when I saw him facing forward, and NOT constantly bobbleheading to the left and right teleprompters, in his pathetic effort to appear natural.

And sure enough, after a while, you could see his head trying to wander to one side or the other, and then him catching it and snapping it back to the single prompter in the center (evoke visions of the hand with a mind of its own in Dr. Strangelove). And then, he started doing RAPID left-right-left-right-left-right head twitches -- very little movement but quite rapid.

(I'm waiting for some wag to take one of his dronefests (any of them would suffice) and then speed up the tempo a bit, and strip out the audio track, and replace it with a musical background -- The Crazy Syncopated Clock -- with Beloved Leader's head bobbing left and right in sync with the music, a visual clock pendulum tracking the tick-tock tick-tock in the music.)
