    Obama is a little too concerned with Islamic tradition, Bin Laden didn't deserve courtesy.

    "The U.S. official who disclosed the burial at sea said it would have been difficult to find a country willing to accept the remains. Obama said the remains had been handled in accordance with Islamic custom, which requires speedy burial."

    There is a LOT of line bluring now a days though between the various service Spec OPS units and a lot of cross work being done. If the group was like the Task Force 21's and 22's of the past then it probably included a nice mix of SEAL's, Green Beret's, Delta, Combat Controller's and even some CIA assets.

    Oh, and;

    Two reasons:

    1. No country really wanted it.
    2. They didn't want his grave either desecrated or turned into a shrine.

    neither Here nor There
    having a burial spot would have been a mecca/rally point for the Bin Laden supporters/fanatics/terrorists.

    So, you think terrorists are stupid enough to go and pay their respects?

    That's would be every intelligence agencies wet dream! :rolleyes:

    There is no reason that they couldn't have conserved the body and then thrown it into a furnace at Langley, at a later point; maybe after hanging it from the Statue of Liberty, for example! ;)

    If we compare his tomb to a shrine and terrorism as a fanatic religion,paying respect to a shrine can be labelled as a superstition.

    There is always at least one of you, even though this is a public forum and you're entitled to your opinion, I am as well. Also I'm glad I served in the military to continue to allow people in this country to have the freedom to speak their mind (not talking about here in this forum but in life).

    Your welcome! lol

    I have the utmost respect for all of the men and women who have served to protect the country and I. However, I do not see the point in celebrating the death of an individual. I am happy that the families of victims, soldiers, and fallen soldiers alike can finally have closure. However, the celebrating that went on last night was ignorant, in my opinion. Al Quaeda will live on and terrorism will continue. There is not a simple solution to this problem. Osama Bin Laden's death may give closure to a country and especially to the those directly affected by 9/11, but it doesn't get to the root of everything. I am sorry if I offended you in anyway.

    Thank you for your service as I have thanked many of my friends who have gone and protected me also. I was not attacking your bravery.
