DEVELOPING: Usama bin Laden was given a religious funeral prior to his burial at sea, senior military officials told Fox News.

Religious rites were conducted on the deck of the USS Carl Vinson aircraft carrier at about 1:10 a.m. Monday in the Persian Gulf.

In accordance with Islamic practice, bin Laden was washed and wrapped in a white sheet before buried at sea at 2 p.m. local time, senior U.S. military and intelligence officials said.

Just wondering how respectful the bodies were treated of the many victims trapped in the World Trade Center and on the planes and in the Pentagon on 9/11/2001.

I'm hoping those rites involved a steam catapult from the flight deck.

Ahem, how can you bury somebody that you dump into the sea. I don’t get it. I understand the use of the word, but mooslimes are supposed to be buried in the ground with their head facing east. How is that in accordance with islamic law or what ever-odd statement by the press.

Please tell me that this is the political correct garbage we are just putting out. Please tell me he got buried at sea with a ham sandwich stuffed in his mouth. I like what Brad Thor said on Beck this morning. Cut his head off and put it on a pike in front of ground zero. That’s what our ancestors would have done. After they drawn and quartered him and sent his entrails out to the four corners of the earth.

I’d prefer they just threw his sorry dead ass in the sea with a necklace of Hebrew National franks around his neck.

Then again, that’d just be a waste of good hot dogs.

Wouldn't entombing his body at some site where he can be worshiped by the filthy rag heads be more dangerous? Dumping this garbage at sea is not a bad idea.

2 pm local time where? It certainly wasn’t Pakistan time or someone is lying, again. Not long after the speech last night, I checked the time for Pakistan and it was 10 am. An hour later, FOX news was reporting the sea dumping. The lies just keep coming on this operation.

Bin Laden Given Religious Funeral Prior to Sea Burial

Ya' mean like the one he gave the almost 3000 people on the morning he had them slaughtered in NY, DC, and PA? Like that one? Huh?

Incredible that they did anything other than dump pig parts all over his body and dump him overboard. Should have wrapped him in a pig carcass!

What idiot came up with this burial at sea drama?..
It has liberal finger prints all over it..

ONLY a liberal could come up with such a lame excuse for handle that body..
"Burial at Sea" masks sensitivity and gets rid of the evidence at the same time..
That is IF THERE EVER WAS ANY EVIDENCE........

Theres a thought!... What if there never WAS any evidence..
But this is Political Kabuki Theater.. all masks face paint strange sounds and posturing..

Asking the pregnant question: "What would Obama LIE!?...

Jed Babbin is the former under secretary of defense for GHWBush reported a few things from " sources":

the photo of dead Osama is a fake . Said he was shot in the side of the head and tore most of his face off.

Osama's body was weighted down and dumped overboard from a carrier to be come "shark chum".

suggested that five or six seals unloaded magazines into ubl, not one soldier doing the deed

panetta watched the attack live, soldiers w/ helmet cams?

The proper and respectful funeral service is not the message we need to send to the Muslim world.

The double tap to the head is.

"The lies just keep coming on this operation."

Or, it's just a mistake made by an idiot reporter. The story says he was buried at sea in the Persian Gulf at 0100. Take it from a guy who has been there - it's a 7 or 8-hour time difference this time of year between New York and that part of the world (the Persian Gulf is so big, it has two separate time zones. So, it would have been appx 1700-1800 local (NYC) time (1-day earlier) when he was discharged to the sea.

What else do we expect from a muzzie president - except to give bin Laden a proper muzzzie burial?

And I can put a proper spin on this:

This is a GOOD THING. Yes, For us to emphasize the muslim burial only serves to remind us that this mass murdering bastard was a muslim.

And like muslims everywhere, he actually was able to kill innconet Americans. Do we not think that - if given the chance - most muslims would murder and kill Americans, if they could?

Yep. Lets focus on the muslim aspects of what bin Laden did.
 
And remember this old classic:

The fact they rushed to dispose of the body (if they ever really had it) and did any type of Islamic burial rites over it makes me believe this is all a bunch of BS.

With Obama’s poll number tanking and the Democrats numbers doing the same, I feel this lie is just to help Obama and his liberal party win the 2012 elections. Why not bring the body back and have it carefully examined and the identification verified 100%?

It just seems odd to me that this news comes out right after Barry’s BC was released (which appears to be as fake as this killing of OBL is). I don’t believe anything this administration tells us.

This doesn’t pass the smell test. Nothing about Barry does.

I guessed 3 AM in another thread reply, so am off by just 1 hour. We should expect this to have occurred in the dark of night. They just didn’t write “3 AM” into the script because it reminds people of the “3 AM” phone call chatter. I suspect we’re never going to see the COLD (Certificate Of not-so-Live Death).

Every report I’ve seen said that the other four people killed in the raid (Obama’s son, two people who owned the house, and a woman that was used as a human shield) had their bodies left behind. Only OBL’s corpse was taken.

Do Nimitz-class supercarriers have yardarms? They should’ve hung the corpse from the yardarm.

(I don’t even know what a yardarm is, BTW, except that apparently they used to hang pirates from them and use them as windchimes or something.)

I am sure he got respectful burial at sea with all the religious traditions intact. With a white sheet wrapped around his body and Koran in hand, he was gently lowered into the sea. I am sure he had a Muslim Imam blessing the body and providing a service to make sure that Osama can enter Jannah (their Heaven).

All this bought and paid for by the United States government is beyond reproach! This is after the president’s words of Osama not being representative of Muslims, but a killer of Muslims (this made me cringe that he had to go out of his way to be politically correct). Obama has to ruin everything, he just can’t man up and do something right.
