Official: Bin Laden buried at sea
(Associated Press) -- by Matt Apuzzo
WASHINGTON – A U.S. official says Osama bin Laden has been buried at sea.
After bin Laden was killed in a raid by U.S. forces in Pakistan, senior administration officials said the body would be handled according to Islamic practice and tradition. That practice calls for the body to be buried within 24 hours, the official said. Finding a country willing to accept the remains of the world's most wanted terrorist would have been difficult, the official said. So the U.S. decided to bury him at sea.
The official, who spoke Monday on condition of anonymity to discuss sensitive national security matters, did not immediately say where that occurred...LINK
Chris Moore comments:
The supposed criminal mastermind behind the 9/11 attacks, a man responsible for the deaths of nearly 3,000 Americans whose actions were used as a pretext to start two wars and who we've spent tens of billions of dollars hunting for nearly 10 years; we got him!
Great! So where's the body?
Oh, even though he's a criminal mass murderer with all that blood on his hands, and whose death, once autopsied and certified, could have brought closure to millions of Americans, we wanted to honor his Islamic custom and bury the body within 24 hours.
But just trust us...it was him.
