Bin Laden Dead!!

May 02, 2011 @ 08:30
So why was he buried at sea?


Also wondering this.

I don't understand the constitution (I'm not American), but apparently it demands something along the lines of those killed in warfare being treated according to their religious traditions - which in Islam's case means being buried within 24 hours of death??

They did it at sea, apparently, because they thought possessing his body would pose all sorts of risks that nobody wanted to face?

Osama bin Laden was killed on 2 May 2011, and is declared deceased on the FBI Most Wanted website.

They didn't follow traditions at all...

The grave should be aligned perpendicular to the Qibla (i.e. Mecca). The body is placed in the grave without a casket, laying on its right side, and facing the Qibla.[10] Grave markers should be raised only up to a maximum of 30 centimetres (12 in) above the ground. Thus Grave markers are simple, because outwardly lavish displays are discouraged in Islam. Many times graves may even be unmarked, or marked only with a simple wreath. However, it is becoming more common for family members to erect grave monuments.

Yeah well I'm only relaying news reports. But there are really only so many requirements they're gonna satisfy for a guy like bin Laden. Still quite suspect, though.

Is that for dead or alive though?

Who cares? For how many people he killed he doesn't deserve anything

Pakistani IT consultant Sohaib Athar live-tweeted the assault on Osama bin Laden

I think he was just questioning 'following tradition' as the reason for the handling of his body.

I thought they burried him at sea so not to create a shrine or a place for people to praise him or something

They probably did take pictures though. We're probably talking black ops dudes, not your run of the mill (no disrespect) marines.

Osama bin Laden's body was buried at sea according to Islamic law because no country was willing or able to take his body for burial on land, senior Defense officials said.

"When there is no land alternative, Islamic law dictates that the body be buried within 24 hours, and that was the basis," one official said. "

A second senior Defense official said there was no country willing or able to accept the body for burial, and U.S. forces "took pains to observe Muslim law."

"Today's religious rites were conducted on the deck of the USS Carl Vinson in the Arabian sea. The ceremony started at 1:10am and finished at 2:10am ET," the second official said. "Procedures for Islamic body were followed. The body was washed and placed in a white sheet. A military official read prepared remarks, which were then translated into Arabic by a native speaker. The body of Osama bin Laden was placed on a flat board, which was then tipped up, and allowed to slide into the sea."

Thanks for clearing that up.

Everything is just word of mouth by government and a president? Where is the physical evidence? Where is pic of him dead? He isnt ground beef, he was shot at by a helicopter not blown up.. U would still be able to see him even with several bullet holes in him.. Just dropped at sea? Where is a video of this happening or pics? U just going to say u dropped him at seasand not fim/or shoot it after what this guy did and not give people satisfaction? Sadam Hussein's execution was filmed and posted all over the internet but Bin Laden was dropped at sea with no video? Where is the DNA report? There would be a print out somewhere showing that the DNA's are matching... There is no physical evidence that this was BIn laden or a man was killed.. I was buying at first but now this is all fishy!

They could have taken him alive (if he were still alive), just as easily as dead. They could have verrified his death in many ways, instead his body was dumped at sea.
Everybody wants to celebrate this as if it were some sort of end to the fear that's been eroding our civil liberties. So do I, but somehow I get the feeling that this is just the prelude to something much worse.
