Why would they parade his body and enrage extremists by giving him the image of a martyr?

Islamic law allows for burial at sea, but only under special circumstances, such as when the death happens aboard a ship and the body cannot be returned to land for the traditional burial in a grave with face looking towards Mecca.


So yes, you're right, they fvcked it up.

The trial, sentence and execution of Saddam was carried out by the Iraqis.

I think last night and today should be for remembering those who died in the attacks, rather than celebrating death.


I almost wish Glenn Beck was still on TV at this point, but all you people claiming 9/11 and the killing of bin Laden didnt happen will have to suffice for conspiracy theory based entertainment value.

I'm of two minds when it comes to the US expecting a large attack soon as some form of retaliation. I think the anger over his killing could result in some jihadist backlash, however because Osama was living in relative luxury with access to the outside world, I would guess he still had a large amount of influence/control over operations of the al queda cells capable of orchestrating an attack on the US. So, since he's dead I would be more inclined to believe that al queda is in more of a regrouping/licking their wounds mode right now.
Celebration of justice, not celebration of death.

And what book of Fiqh did you read that from? The body is to be returned to family members if there is enough time, not chucked overboard.

Still no empirical evidence of his death

I'll tell you what...

this gives Obama a huge boost, right on the back of him slappin down Donald Trump at that dinner..

The guy is making the right moves from a politician's POV...

they cant call him soft on foreign policy any more. That was a major point of rhetoric besides his birth certificate inside the GOP..

He can always take credit for this if he gets questioned on his foreign policy instincts.. To give this guy his due, he actually said during his campaign that Osama was in Pakistan and he wouldnt have any problems going in ... He caught flak for saying that...

looks like he won that debate on whether or not to go in to get Osama...

That's what I mean by special circumstances - the event that there is not enough time to return the body. I'm not disagreeing with you.

Osama Bin Laden has been dead for many many years. Most reports have his death at around December 2001. He was VERY sick then, with his kidney disease....there were plenty of reports about it, and it appears to be widely known, except in the U.S.

There have been audio tapes released where he talks about President Obama, and he references plenty of other recent events.
