    They(Muslims) have to bury trash 24 hours after the death. They don't want a spot of land to become a shrine to this pigso they threw it to the sharks.

    God bless our Navy Seals-job well done!!!!!!!

    There are some very happy little fish and crabs munching on UBL's carcass this morning. It's a great day!!

    From what I'm hearing with the body...

    Muslim tradition is that the body must be buried within 24 hours.

    They offered it to the Saudi's first, who refused.

    They didn't want to bury him in Afghanistan/Pakistan/Iraq/Etc because they felt that wherever he was buried would instantly become a Shrine.

    They didn't have time to transport him elsewhere and bury him and still properly have it done in time with Muslim tradition.

    As such, they did a burial at sea, giving him no real specific point of burial that can become a Shrine and adhering to the timeline thus trying to continue the good PR.

    I said something like that, but it really as a joke. No, that would incite flag burning and Death to America. The best thing happened to rob them of any excuse to make a deal out of it.

    No body / No shrine
    Not facing Mecca

    I'm sure that disposal of his body was well thought out. Interesting that he died on the same day of the year that Hitler committed suicide. What were the odds?

    How about a permanent tomb at Gitmo?

    And the PROOF that you have is what ? (other than the word of the Obama administration who stands to gain politically from such an announcement)

    That was my point. Supplying incontrovertible proof of OBL's death (photos, DNA etc) will be vital to avoid conspiracy theories. I thought my post was pretty clearly worded.
