The notion of proof is predicated upon the notion a person is rational, and the conspiracy theorists are so irrational by nature that they will simply incorporate any actual proof as being part of the conspiracy by claiming it is the false proof submitted by those creating the conspiracy.

    And a host of our executed criminals should also meet a dumpster, not a grave. I am not sure why they blew the compound. It seems there would have been current intelligence there to shed light on AQ activities. 40 minutes is a good amount of time though to do a search.

    Re: Official: Bin Laden buried at sea

    Excerpted from “Osama Bin Laden Body Headed for Burial at Sea, Officials Say” reported by ABC News' Jonathan Karl, “The Note” (blog), ABC News, May 02, 2011 1:59 AM
    U.S. officials tell me the last thing they want is for his burial place to become a terrorist shrine.

    To avoid that, an informed source tells me, the intention is [to] bury his body at sea -- leaving no definitive location for the final resting place of his body. …
    Osama bin Laden's only memorial will be the voids in the lives of his victims' families.

    Okay, I think I addressed that point a few pages ago when I said:
    Me Post 6 - This is true, of course. However, as with the Birthers, the release of proof removes doubt in the minds of the neutral observers. It relegates those inevitable conspiracy theories to the domain of the crazies like BmanMcFly and the other Birther loonies. Proof doesn't eliminate conspiracy theorists, it just convinces those whose critical faculties are still intact.

    I don't give a toss what they do with the body, but I do care that it is properly identified and that there can be no conspiracy theories allowed to grow up around whether the event was hoaxed.

    "Buried at sea" is the polite way of saying "we dumped him overboard the second we confirmed the DNA evidence."

    I hope they send a fish wrapped Bin Ladin's clothing to the 'new' Al Qaeda leaders...



    Luca Brasi and Bin Ladin both now sleep with the fishes...

    Anybody hear where they got the DNA sample for reference?

    NOTa conspiracy theory, just pointing wjere one might pop up. He did have health problems, so his DNA probably was available.
