Osama bin Laden Buried at Sea – No Monuments: Tradition Followed – Someone had to Wash the Man’s Body Before Burial

Last night as this news broke, we were told that Osama bin Laden died one week ago, that DNA testing had eventually confirmed his death and his body was in the custody of the U.S. This morning we learn he died in the wee hours of the morning, May 2, 2011 Pakistan time, and May 1st, May Day 2011 in the U.S. Two videos below, the first Jennifer Griffin tells about the burial, how the operation went down and the decisions NOT to give Islam an opportunity to make a monument to his burial. The second is Obama’s address to the nation.

U.S. Navy Seals

The operation was conducted by the Navy Seals, and after DNA confirmation of the identity, the terrorist was buried at sea. Last night we heard the President say that Osama bin Laden died yesterday, May 2nd in Pakistan, even though all early reports said he died one week ago. At about 4 minutes in, Obama says “Today (May 1st US time), at my direction the United States launched a targeted operation against that compound in Abottabad Pakistan, a small group of Americans carried out the operation…”

Jennifer Griffin says bin Laden was shot in the forehead. Our Seals entered the compound and briefly gave bin Laden the opportunity to surrender. There was a huge fire fight. An American Blackhawk helicopter landed at the compound, and due to a lack of air for the helicopter to rise again, our military blew it up, leaving nothing behind. They took photographs to use as proof of the death. Twenty-four Navy Seals took part in the operation, and the raid lasted 49 minutes.

Today Islamic thugs are doubting the death and saying this:

“The Americans want to humiliate Muslims through this burial, and I don’t think this is in the interest of the U.S. administration,” said Omar Bakri Mohammed, a radical cleric in Lebanon.

A U.S. official said that the burial decision was made after concluding that it would have been difficult to find a country willing to accept the remains. There also was speculation about worry that a grave site could have become a rallying point for militants…

U.S. President Barack Obama said the remains had been handled in accordance with Islamic custom, which requires speedy burial.

But the Lebanese cleric Mohammed called it a “strategic mistake” that was bound to stoke rage.

In keeping with Muslim tradition (which was strictly followed by the Seals) the terrorist was be buried at sea before 4 pm May 2 in Pakistan. This minute it is 8: p.m. May 2nd, 2011. All Islamic traditions were carried out – meaning our poor Seals or someone in the Navy had to wash the man’s body before dumping him overboard. Can anyone explain why Osama bin Laden’s should receive the privilege of such care?

Fox News’ Jon Scott says his son is a newbie at West Point and the school broke out in huge celebration.

  • I am not buying Obama’s claim. This man had a $25 million bounty on his head and the Obama administration said they didn’t want to parade him around like a trophy. The truth is, he was already labeled a trophy. Why bury him at sea and not let the American people see the body?

  • They better show his body or there will be another movement to add to the Birther Movement and the 9/11 Truther Movement.

  • BB and TCL, I heard this morning that the Seals took photos for proof. I like the idea of him being buried at sea, with no monument to him, but I am dang mad that our military had to “prepare” him for a traditional Islamic burial. That should have never happened, and our men should have no part in that. What other terrorist have we made sure was “washed” and wrapped in a white sheet, before sundown, no matter where he was buried.

    I will say this, if here had been a burial place on land, Obama would have likely been most embarrassed at the hugh masses of moderate Muslims that faced Mecca and worshipped there.

  • Ding dong Osama’s dead, bullet holes in his head, ding dong the rotten bastard’s dead!

  • I suspect the ‘news cycles’ won’t be boring for quite some time with this development. A dead Osama bin Laden is a good thing. We may not be able to say the same about the rest of the story.

    • Stanford, Obama is a legend in his own time and in his own mind.

  • I’d use a power washer…

    • I think it’s possible a few spit on him. We’ll never know unless the Left infiltrates and pays some sailor to tell a story to be equal to Abu Ghraib.

    Unless I’m mistaken, just about every Muslim in the world now believes Osama is in heaving enjoying his virgins. Since he will have supposedly died a martyr for Islam and his body was properly prepared and buried, he will be in heaven. Now, we all know different but that doesn’t matter. What matters is what they believe and how this belief will affect them. In Vietnam, the North Vietnamese built coffins for the dead before big battles. The VC believed if the had proper burial; they would be in heaven so they had no fear when in battle; drugs helped some too.

    He should have been buried in the middle of a pig pen. No Muslim would erect a shrine to him there. Also, they would believe he’s in hell. The guy murders thousands of Americans and our troops have to treat his body like he was a hero.

    • BobF, the problem is, he wouldn’t have been buried in a pig pen, but what a great idea.

    Crawl out of your little hole. Osama was dead years ago, the USA had a hand in 911, WAR makes billions for suits so why end it. Question everything…you really think your governing system cares about you….go join the ARMY and see first hand how many lives you can ruin oversea over the American’s quest for global control of oil…God bless America SUCKERS!!

    • Hank, don’t call me four-letter words, in fact just take your ignorance elsewhere.

    • Oh hank… you need to get off the meds… Fowel m

  • Was trying to say to Hank he’s a foul mouth… well anyway.. I’m using my lap top… and I hate the keyboard.
    What strikes me Maggie… Why not keep this whole event secret and then get the best use of all that intellegence they gathered. Obama is a publicity whore. Hece saw this as his ticket to getting re-elected… To hell with National security and purpose.. this President sickens me.
    I have a friend, who was a Navy Seal… I’m taking him to dinner when I get home. We all should, if we know of any people who are… just to honor those who take no bows like this jackass did.

  • Calling him Jackass… is that a bit much?

  • Why are there no pictures or videos yet? Hmmmmmm….
