    Official: Bin Laden buried at sea

    WASHINGTON – A U.S. official says Osama bin Laden has been buried at sea.

    The official, who spoke Monday on condition of anonymity to discuss sensitive national security matters, did not immediately say where that occurred.

    Fish food. Perfect.

    Hopefully when they tossed his evil ass overboard Mecca wasn't where he was pointing upon landing.

    They should give the exact point (or any point... doesn't matter) where they threw his ass overboard, and any idiots that go there to worship the jerk... well, let's say they'd mysteriously join his ass too. Call it The Osama Triangle.

    Really interesting that this is the way they chose to do it.

    But it's probably for the best (Of course all kinds of conspiracy theories are going to spring up) but I'm guessing they didn't want to hang onto his body for too long just in case accusation of Americans burning Korans on it and pissing all over it came up.

    Burn in Hell.

    I think we might want to take that report with a pinch of sea salt. Let's wait for the official statement of what has been done with the body rather than assume an anonymous source speaking to a journalist off the record is the real version.

    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.

    There's going to be anyway

    I mean come on, Obamas long form didn't shut up the H-Core Birthers.

    H-Core conspiracy theorists of any stripe, whether its the moon landings or whatever, are never satisfied with any amount of evidence.

    Bet you top dollar they're already working on their conspiracy theories at this very moment.

    We'll see some in the next few weeks if not days.

    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 agree with Part I.

    I would think they'd covered Part II. If not there's a really huge chunk of feces on its way to meet a fan. One poster said this would ensure Obama's reelection. If Part II is cocked up, he may as well resign now.

    I'm assuming they will release a picture of his body eventually, even though he may not be recognizable since he was shot in the face. But I think they would also release the DNA results as well.
