    Even if they kept the body, there would be those who would deny he were dead.

    I believe they buried him so quickly due to the rites and traditions of Islam. The deceased must be buried at least 24 hours after death. Also, they buried him at sea to prevent a buriel site for his followers. Good thinking, and I hope it pays off.

    Shablon, I'm new to this forum, and I haven't heard this before. Is there a thread that explains how Zionists were resonsible for 9/11, and if not, could you start one and explain your position? Thanks!!

They unload the body, take reams of photographs and video, perform an autopsy (no matter what they say, you know they did this), take a bunch of tissue samples for DNA analysis... among other things... then load the body up back into a chopper, fly some 1,200-1,500 miles to the nearest carrier group, then go through a complete Islamic-based burial prep... all within 24 hours? I don't know how fast choppers fly, but even at 100 miles per hour it would have taken 20 hours from Islamabad to Kabul and Kabul to the Arabian Sea.

    I'm not buying it. That's the "show how we respect Islamic tradition" version for public distribution. I wouldn't be surprised if it wasn't in cold storage at a top secret military facility waiting for the DNA and other tests to be completed before being flown back over the ocean and dumped out of a chopper.

    I'm not saying that's what happened, but logic tells me that the time required for that scenario makes the 24-hour turnaround a bit suspect.
    Good points. I wouldn't mind seeing a timeline on how this was carried out, but this may never be available for public consumption. I would say that it is possible, but they would have to be moving at a good clip. This is the military, though, and they can move pretty fast when needed!

    I'm not saying it will prevent shrines and the like, but I do feel that having an actual burial site would have acted as a focal point for his lemmings to flock to.

    If he was taken to Jalalabad, then to the Northern Arabian Sea, I think it is very doable.

    The worst part is that there are plenty of conspiracy nuts, like my ex-husband, who are already doing this (American citizens). I think America is getting dumber by the day.

    They shouldn't have given him a "proper" Islamic burial. But whatever, his body isn't breathing whether he was stuffed with bacon and fed to homosexual dogs or if he was buried within 24 hours at sea.

    I think to announce that he was buried at sea will be seen as a desecration and might make it more likely that he will be made some kind of a martyr, I have no idea how to avoid this out come.

    Unfortunately there is no safe way to avoid making a martyr out of a mass murderer who is a radical Islamic self proclaimed saviour of the Cult of Islam.

    It's a hard thing to combat and there is no easy way to end the life of such a person and avoid the inevitable outcome we now face.

    I have been involved reporting murders and and mass murder and this is a unique case.

    I wish there were a safe and easy way to avoid this but, I cannot think of a way. This might be the best way to deal with this bastard.

    I have nothing but respect for the team that killed this scum bag.

    And I have to say Obama surprised me in this case. It is the first time he did the right thing.
    I agree, there may be no way to prevent him from becoming a martyr, but I heard a report yesterday from a reporter in Afganistan that said that many young Afganis do not know about 9/11 or who bin Laden is. This surprised me, but I do forget how primitive the communication system is in Afganistan, and that it was almost ten years since the towers fell. Or maybe I and and the reporter are just wishing that the scumbags death will not become a rallying cry.

    The burial was not done for him or his followers. Even Muslims who hated bin Laden would have been offended if he was not buried properly. This was PR, and a gesture that we are not at war with Islam, but with the terrorists who hide behind the Qu'ran to commit murder.
