Skip to comments.Despite DNA evidence, some doubt bin Laden really dead

Within hours of the raid on Osama bin Laden's Pakistan compound, the CIA had used 21st technology to get "a virtually 100 percent DNA match" on the dead man. But something out of another century may come back to haunt the United States: the al-Qaida leader's burial at sea.
Conspiracy theorists on the left and right were quick to insist bin Laden was either still alive or had been dead for years, pouncing on the government's decision to slide the body of the world's most wanted man off a board into the Arabian Sea.
The burial at sea largely followed widely accepted interpretations of Islamic law taking care not to anger the mainstream Muslim community, said Ebrahim Moosa, a professor of Islamic studies at Duke University in North Carolina.
With only a small group of witnesses, a military officer read prepared religious remarks, which were translated into Arabic by a "native speaker," the official said.
The Islamic tradition of a quick burial was the subject of intense debate in Iraq in 2003 when U.S. forces embalmed the bodies of Saddam Hussein's two sons after they were killed in a firefight. Their bodies later were shown to media.

Isn't this going a little too far to bury a terrorist? I wonder what the "religious remarks" said, that Bin Laden was a great man?
No body, no Bin Laden dead.
They did not bury him at sea. The body is right next to that body part of John Dillinger and Kennedy’s brain.
Compare how Bush handled when we killed Saddam Hussein’s two sons in a raid:
“in Iraq in 2003 when U.S. forces embalmed the bodies of Saddam Hussein’s two sons after they were killed in a firefight. Their bodies later were shown to media.”
Why didn’t Obama do the same thing — allow the UK and other countries to take their own DNA sample from the body and do their own DNA analysis and show the dead body to the media?
Because no one dare question The One. It’s beneath him to have to prove anything. Heck, supposedly he refused to release a perfectly legit BC for years just because.
START YOR CONSPIRICy’s
OH STOP....GET A LIFE, IF YOU NEED A CHUNK OF HIS BODY TO prove to you that he is dead...O.K. I guess, but you are unrealistic....by the way, Tojo and Hitler are also dead...I’m not certain about Stalin
Despite DNA evidence, some doubt bin Laden really dead
Well yeah. after all the story of his death come from “our” Government. Maybe we should TRUST BUT VERIFY.
They should have fed his body to the hogs.
Great, now the “deathers”...
What DNA evidence? Them saying they have DNA evidence?
What would DNA evidence say to a layman?
Men did not land on Mars! Oh wait that hasn’t happened yet so I gotta wait.
Until then...Men did not land on the moon. ;)
( they actually did but I’m jst positing my fave conspiracy— I gotta add this disclaimer for those that don’t get the point. sigh.)
The American people and the world deserve to see photographic evidence.
If the Department of the Navy says he is dead, He is dead.
I was going to give a longer explanation, but this one is short and explains it all: obama is a narcissist.
bin-laden is currently shark food, but because of the arrogant jerk in the white house, millions of conspiracists have been created. Show the da.. fotos you conceited nitwit, and get it over with.
Because everyone alive can look at comparative DNA sequences and be totally sure it’s him.
[why? can’t ~you~?]
This is a waking nightmare.
Dive in the Arabian sea to find him. Trump can finance your adventure.
Notice that no one rally cares what kooks think, they keyword is ‘reasonable people.’
What is “virtually 100 percent”? Is that sort of like almost certain?
Me and The Donald want to see the long form of his death certificate.
