    Default Osama Bin Laden buried at sea

    The dilemma of what to do with Osama bin Laden's body appears to have been quickly resolved if reports that he has been buried at sea prove correct.

    Burying him on land could have led to his grave becoming a centre of contention as well as raising questions about where he should be buried.

    "Finding a country willing to accept the remains of the world's most wanted terrorist would have been difficult," a US official said, adding: "So the US decided to bury him at sea."

    Fears about Bin Laden's burial place turning into a shrine for Islamists were probably unfounded, since the Wahhabi/Salafi tradition rejects such things. Even Saudi kings are buried in unmarked graves.

    Senior US officials initially told news agencies that his body would be disposed of in accordance with Islamic tradition, which involves ritual washing, shrouding and burial within 24 hours.

    Although the swift burial complies with Islamic custom and should therefore avoid causing any offence in Muslim countries, the apparent haste could lead to claims that the person killed was not really Bin Laden – though the US authorities have taken DNA samples and appear to have no doubts.

    The 24-hour rule has not always been applied by the US in the past. For example, the bodies of Uday and Qusay Hussein – sons of the Iraqi dictator – were held for 11 days before being released for burial.

    Burial at sea is rare in Islam, though several Muslim websites say it is permitted in certain circumstances.

    One is on a long voyage where the body may decay before the ship reaches land. The other is if there is a risk of enemies digging up a land grave and exhuming or mutilating the body – a rule that could plausibly be applied in Bin Laden's case.

    For sea burial, according to alislam.org, the body should be lowered into the water "in a vessel of clay or with a weight tied to its feet". The website adds: "As far as possible it should not be lowered at a point where it is eaten up immediately by the sea predators."

    Doubt it. I'm sure his body was treated with the utmost respect, seeing as how our administration were the ones who authorized him to be buried at sea rather then brought back to the states.

    He deserved way worse than to be shot and then given a traditional Islamic burial. Caged and a couple of 747's slowly inserted into his ass hole would have sufficed with me.

    They were told to take him alive if possible unless he put up a fight, which he did. So 1 between the eyes was appropriate.

    CNN was reporting earlier the mission was a kill mission for everyone inside the compound ordered by the president, one of the White House correspondants backed this up during a question and answer period.
    I've got some wacky theorys of my own about how fast the body was sent to the deep.

    I'm glad they didn't take the worthless p.o.s. alive. I wouldn't want my frickin tax money spent to defend his worthless carcas in court & support him in prison for the rest of his life.

    Since it was the navy seals that killed him, it was two between the eyes, since they are trained to do a double shot.

    Neither would I, but he got a lot better than he deserved.

    Wash him down with PIG'S blood and throw him in with a bunch of hungry hog's would be my idea. As far as the photos on the internet go they must be fake or his beard would not have grown about 6 inches and loose all the grey in it.
