How Bin-Laden should have been dumped into the sea.
Bin Laden’s Burial and Our Dhimmitude
Surprised the USS Carl-Vinson didn’t just turn itself into Bin Laden’s floating funeral pyre…
A “senior defense (is that term “defense” even appropriate?) department official” describes the Muslim religious rites administered for Osama bin Laden (isn’t that grotesquely hypocritical if Bin Laden’s acts were “anti-Islamic,” as affirmed unanimously and repeatedly by our political and military leadership for a decade since 9/11 ??) aboard an aircraft carrier in the Arabian Sea, following the raid that killed the Al-Qaeda leader.
Traditional procedures for Islamic burial were followed. The deceased’s body was washed and then placed in a white sheet. The body was placed in a weighted bag.
A military officer read prepared religious remarks which were translated into Arabic by a native speaker. After the words were complete, the body was placed on a prepared flat-board… (and) eased into the sea.

“That was some ceremony — longer than the commando raid that bagged the al Qaeda honcho. Funny how the man who, in becoming a mass murderer, “perverted,” “hijacked” and “distorted” one of the world’s “great religions” still gets a spiffy send-off to Islam’s orgy in the skies.”
