So why was he buried at sea?
Also wondering this.

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

.Originally posted by Inactive UserOsama 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."
Originally posted by Inactive UserOBL's been dead for years, the CIA's used him as a boogeyman to keep the public frightened and motivated to fight an endless war. The fact he no longer serves this purpose is worrisome. Those that are in control need to motivate more fear and hate to keep the war going, and it's not beyond them to sacrifice innocent lives to achieve their ends.
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.
