    WTF is up with that? They displayed both of Saddam's sons bodies. We spent billions to get that man! What was Obama thinking? O is a fucking dip-shit idiot!

    I hope he doesn't try to hive me any bullshit about being sensitive to the feelings of the Islamic world or that's there burial tradition. Fuck that shit! What about Americans' sensitivity to paying billions for this?!?!?

    Yup.
    The conspiracy theories are probably brewing like tea as we speak.
    And then at the proper time - the Obama administration will release all the photos they took of bin Laden's body - and all the conspiracy theories will get destroyed - and the right-wing crazies will look like shit.

    I think OBL was spending the better part of the last 10 years making all kinds of video clips so that they can be cut and pasted to fit any future event, to make people think he's still alive! icon_twisted.gif

    QFT.

    Obama may have many disagreeable qualities, but being stupid so as to hire a PR team that wastes spin opportunities, or systematically discrediting the opposition is not among them.

    From the Book of Clinton, the Padawan Obama has learned well. icon_biggrin.gif

    What would we do with the body?

    Bury it on our soil? He doesn't belong here symbolically ("Would you bury a heretic on holy ground?") and would just be an attraction for extremists to unearth him or cause havoc here.

    Send it back to Saudi Arabia? And create a Mecca for terrorists?

    Send it to a neutral country? That country just bought itself another round of terrorism. Is there such a thing as a neutral country to terrorists?

    I'm sure the CIA and the military, as well as the president, have thought about this long and hard, and way before they ever embarked on this mission.

    and then it would be a Holy relic to some people
    .... the exact same people you want to deny this type of thing to

    pls_dont_sing saidPersonally, I wish they'd fed his corpse to pigs.

    Better yet, feed him to goats, slaughter them as per halal traditions, and have his muslim followers eat their meat.

    Either way, thank God they didn't capture him alive and put us all through 25 years of court cases and revenge attacks. Best news I heard yesterday was that they shot that fuckwad in the head.

    Good work, America. It took two presidents and tens of thousands of lives to put that diseased mind out of our collective misery. Bravo!

    But the US did not pay for it on it on their own! Can we and mother England send the US the bill for what it cost us to watch your back, and what about our feelings too?

    Here we go.... Chapter one for the conspiracy to start debating if Osama is really dead or if it was just a good and very-well panned show for the American people. As much as I hate it, Can be go back and start talking about the Royal Wedding?

    Yep, those sharpshooters got him in the head without harming his wife who he turned into a human shield.

    What a fucking pussy.

    Caslon, they followed Islamic tradition so they do not fuel the fire. They are trying to end it, not start another one. Think hard about this.

    Also, since Osama was a Muslim (however extreme he MAY have been), they should follow the general Islamic law governing a person's death.

    While disposing at sea is not the most proper burial, it satisfied the requirements of a quick burial - which is more important.

    Furthermore, it is prohibited to show a dead person's face to the general public under Islamic law once they have been killed... only the FAMILY of the person killed is allowed to see the face and even then it is not mahboob (liked).

    You should be thankful they did not show his face on screen, or you would most likely have other terrorists to deal with later.

    I don't agree wth the Obama administartion all that often, but on this one - absolutely they did it the correct way. I wouldn't have changed a thing.

    Don't worry.
    The Obama administration thought of every angle, including the wing nut Republican conspiracy theorists.
    The Navy Seals took pictures and DNA evidence.

    And just exactly what would we be doing with the body? Huh? Exactly what? Pulling a William Wallace-quartering the body and displaying it at the 4 quarters of this country? PUH-LEEZE!

    I do remember the side by side picture of Saddam's sons, but I don't remember seeing a swinging from the noose Saddam. Would I want to see a picture of Laden with the kill shot hole above the left eye and the make sure he is dead shot above that? Sure, why not? Is today any different that Saturday (when he was still alive)? No, because while his death does put a serious dent into the plans of Al Queada, it does not destroy them or terror around the world.

    Instead of being focused on a damn picture, how now being focused and downsizing the number of our men and women away from home around the world. I know all of them aren't coming home, but most of them can come home now with shorter rotations out of the country. That should be the focus. Not some damn picture.

    The best answer for Caslon comes from a republican senator.

    "Americans don't do that"

    I think the Obama administration handled this pretty perfectly right down to the burial at sea. I gained a huge amount of respect for President Obama for the mere fact that he took the leap of faith and greenlighted the mission at huge risk if it failed. I was thrilled that he called President Bush with the news before he told the nation. Also proud of Bush for turning down any interviews and Obama's invitation to go to Ground Zero on Thursday with him. I have a feeling that former Presidents are probably far more united than the country is.
