No burial at see makes 100% perfect sense.
No grave site to be turned into a shrine or place or worship or pilgrimage etc.
Same as happened to Hitler and Eichmann etc

Why wouldn't they? If the custom requires quick burial then what's the problem?

As for "being around Obama's re-election", I think you should say "around elections". Otherwise you are taking something for granted?

Seriously, if it was going to be done, would you wait for months until AFTER the election? So that your opponents could say "he knew where the man was but did nothing?"

Also notice how Pakistan is now complaining. The man lived 100m from an army group and they never had done anything. If the US forces had given a warning to the Pakistani forces, bin Laden would be gone 15 minutes before their arrival.

I still don't feel convinced yet about Bin Laden being dead but that's just me being sceptical...

And I say "Obama's re-election" because that's how America see's the elections. I'm not sure though if Donald Trump will oppose any sort of threat against Obama?? Only the votes will tell - Which by the way, is quite ridiculous how the voting system works in the U.S

go back to the ABC video of the compound page 4:

anyone hear dogs? (sorry if my hearing is useless) ... pakistani (muslim) have dogs? Osama (muslim) had dogs? if the president hand picked 24 SEALs one of them was a real animal? was it an iphone?

but yeah i'm pretty convinced OBL is no more ... it's so easy to know - if he is still around a new video will be dropped off at Al-Jazeera don't you think?

TheUngeek: If you are going to apprehend someone who is known for planning suicide attacks, and who is meant to be 100% committed to the cause, would you not consider the fact that he may have something nearby to blow himself up along with his would be captors?


interesting, since when it is 100% sure? who confirm that?

justice is decided in court not with gun 

anyway, he was unarmed when they were there.

Do you doubt he was committed to his cause?!

Justice was decided long before men with guns found him. That is why they went looking for him.

so far i have not yet come across any published evidence(s) that osama was involved in 9/11. 

"We've never made the case, or argued the case that somehow Osama Bin Laden was directly involved in 9-11. That evidence has never been forthcoming." former V.P. Dick Cheney


i believe in justice and peace. no one should be judged without a fair hearing, audi alteram partem.

to those who still think there is 'hard evidence' against osama in 9/11, check out this FBI site
