First I think they stuffed Obama’s college and school record up Osama’s ass before they dropped into the drink. Kill two birds with one stone, I always say.
So, after the decision was made to take the life of Osama bin Laden, out of respect for his religious tradition the evidence of his death is destroyed? That strains credibility, as taking a life is by far of greater consequence than leaving the corpse unburied for 24 hours.
Was Saddam Hussein’s corpse similarly honored? If not his, why bin Laden’s?
And what exactly was gained by respecting his religious tradition? Will that cause the Muslim street to forgive the taking of bin Ladens life? Having taken bin Ladens life, would not respecting Muslim burial customs cause significantly more anger on the Muslim street? And just where in Muslim burial customs is disposal at sea?
One must remember we are not dealing with the most transparent Administration in history, nor with the most trustworthy of Presidents. Skepticism is not inappropriate. While it would be a plus if bin Laden were gone, these are nagging questions that diminish the sense of closure one would hope to have at this moment.
