So what the US Gvmt. is saying is the physical proof that we killed Osama is now fish food. That smell fishy, I-A-B?

I do not have the time to read everyone`s comments but in case anyone does not know, under Islamic burial rituals tossing the body of a Muslim into the ocean is permissible only if the body is decomposing before reaching land or there is a significant risk the body will be contaminated/ dug up by other individuals.

Faking Osama`s death would be impossible. the drater would just come out with another video to prove he`s not dead. jeeze.


also, lenjiah is right. his body needed to be rid of so no one could get a hold of it and go crazy worshipping it.

In my opinion, the reason for America dumping Osama Bin Laden`s body to sea was so that no grave site could be established. Chances are that such a grave site would end up being almost a place of worship.

Also, I think Islamic tradition states that a body must be buried after ... 48 hours? Something like that.

Can we at least agree that this isnt a win for obama? They`ve been looking for him for years, if credit goes to ANYONE it should be to the SEALs and the men and women of the US military.

And no offense to the picture below but, last time I checked Obama didn`t start the search for him, nor did he fly out and personaly search either.

If you really believe the images that come up on Google (at the moment) of his "dead body" are real, you deserve to have a physical copy of Photoshop shoved up your ass sideways. Seriously. Find the biggest version of it you can and tell me you really believe it`s genuine.

I`m with Fancy. It`s all fishy and any fool who believes they have told us the 100% truth at all times for the past 234 years is being hard-headed and a refusing to cope with the notion that the world around you might not be everything it seems. Sure, it might be a longshot. No, I can`t say with conviction that there`s more to the story. But the fact that tons of people say with conviction "there`s nothing to see here, carry on" over and over and over again, each time something conspicuous happens, REALLY disturbs me.

i) Because there are a billion or so Muslims in the world and Islam is the most powerful religion in the world. That means that it`s politically expedient to pander to it.

ii) It`s generally considered civilised to treat the bodies of enemies with a degree of respect, which generally includes at least minimal consideration for whatever religious rituals they considered important while they were alive.

The only bad thing about this whole Bin Laden business is that there wasn`t enough time devoted to the White House Correspondents dinner smackdown of Donald Trump. That was priceless and should have been milked for much longer.

Meh, I would say that if they do release photos they they could be photoshopped, and I would also say that they can fake all the other evidence and that all of this was a plot by Obama to gain more approval before next year BUT that would make me a conspiracy theorist and that I am not..

Only thing thats seems weird to me is that he died just now..Seems a little odd that will all the resources we`ve been useing to find him and all the time we`ve had only just now have we found him and then they get a video of the apparent Kill scene and its just a normal little house? Seems like it took a little long to find.

Score one for US:MI I guess.

I was wondering if anyone else noticed that oil suddenly dropped like a buck & change a gallon when they announed he was dead. That`s pretty weird. Also, all this time he was supposed to be living in a cave somewhere and the reality was he was living in a nice suburban neighborhood of doctors, lawyers and Camry drivers. Go figure. I definitely believe he`s dead, but I definitely want to see at least a picture of the body.

Really Fancy, you brought JFK in to this one?
I once heard a quote that went something like
"The reason there is a JFK conspiracy is because americans(humans) don`t want to think that someone SO important and SO powerful can be taken out in the blink of an eye by one crazy man, and a gun"
It happened, accept it, move on! Osama is dead, imagine the poo storm that would come out of a photo of Osama in a holding cell, or a video of him holding up todays newspaper announcing his death. The hunt is over, now lets hope that no one takes his "throne"(for lack of a better word).

They wouldn`t make all this hoopla about it unless they were 200% sure that he wouldn`t make another video and prove them all wrong. That would be pretty much a political disaster. So he`s dead. I`m glad he`s dead. And I don`t give a damn about the details.

marcus2 via gerry1of1 - Maybe they have learnt from their mistakes. Remember the all the poo they got from the islamic world when they released the pictures of Saddam Husseins sons dead? And gerry is right - buried at sea = no shrine. They must have put some thought to it. Abbottabad is 1000 miles from the nearsest sea..

If I were a rational conspiracy theorist (oxymoron?)...

It would be naive to declare his death without knowing he was dead, so he probably is dead, but through no involvement of the US or its allies. However claiming that he died through a US operation grants him his martyrdom and raises support in the US for Obama/War on Terror at a time where more direct involvement in Libya, Sudan and Pakistan are looking increasingly likely, thus being beneficial for both groups... this is where it kind of becomes less rational, because it`d imply that the War on Terror was a front to keep people terrified and controlled and so on. But yeah, it`s pretty easy to see why people would doubt the official version of events; the 24 hour thing, for example, the only sources I can see for that are in Western media, more politically neutral sources don`t mention it.

Of course, it might just be the Americans were waiting for the right time so they could one-up the UK over the Royal Wedding.

why all the fuss? This isn`t rocket science ya know.

We cannot piss off our muslim allies by mistreating the body of a muslim {even a bad one}.
Muslim tradition is the body must be burried within 24 hours.
Obama was not gonna give the body over so it can be put in some shrine nor could he burry him on US soil.

Solution...burrial at sea. No grave/shrine for followers to flock to.

Makes sense to me, but then a lot of weird things make sense to me so.... there ya go

c`mon, furryblob, really? ass-hole?

again, i stress that i`m not saying there`s a conspiracy going on in this case, but are you telling me that YOU believe everything the US government tells you? again, i bring up the JFK assassination. it`s been proven that it was an inside job, but if we were to live like you, Oswald was the lone gunman.

i`m proud to live in america and consider myself lucky to be a citizen here, but hell, that doesn`t mean i have to believe everything that government officials force feed us.

but you can go ahead and believe what you`re told 100 percent of the time.

I`m not saying there is or there isn`t something fishy going on. All I`m saying is that in a age when everything has a camera built into it, something physical that pleebs like me can just look at would be nice--I mean hell, I waited almost 10 years for this. And now all I get is a late night speech from the president saying that he`s been killed? Details are too sketchy is all.

And besides, why does anyone have to buy the first story told to them by the government? If that was the case, why don`t we all just believe that JFK was killed by Lee Harvey Oswald?

Sorry that I`m not jumping in with both feet like everyone else.

Actually that `buried him to respect Islamic law` is a load of BS. Islamic law requires the funeral prayers as MANDATORY before burial, and burial is ONLY allowed under dirt on land, except if the person has drowned in the ocean or has died on board a boat or ship.

In a cave somewhere, Osama hears that the great Satan has declared him dead.

Henchman: "Osama! We must release another video mentioning something recent, to prove you are still alive!"

Osama: "....Naaaah, I think I`m going to let the US get away with this one. I`ll stay quiet forever."

REALLY???? The CIA thought that would happen???

At least they could have brought the dead body to U.S. for post-martem.we could have easily compare his DNA to the DNA of his son or any known family member and confirmed it 100%.
So now the only proof that It was really Osama bin laden is that it looked like him and US government says so.Given the circumstances that U.S. gov was under lot of pressure to catch osama after 10 years extravagant mission.

Like I said before. Respecting the 24 rule is fine, but they should have:

Covered him in pig lard, and burned him on a funeral pyre at Ground Zero, with an audience. Then taken his ashes and dropped them, along with pig parts, on al-Qaeda forces as we leave Afghanistan.

I have had to correct so many conspiracy theorists this morning. Islamic law states that a body must be buried within 24 hours after death. What country wants to be associated with him? What country wants his body in their soil? NO ONE!!! Therefore, the sea made the most sense. it was done to appease all Islamic groups.

Me wants proof. Conspiracy theorists/skeptics will agree there isn`t any significant proof other than statements made by a government.

Not trying to take anything away from the victory, but it seems a little bit like a push for public polls... an announcement about killing FBI`s #1 most wanted in the middle of TV`s most watched hour (Sunday evening/night)... I dunno brah.

My thought process is that if 50% Americans are willing to believe that the government had some involvment, either minor or major involvment, then they should also question the validity of all this brew-ha-ha.

I personally do believe they got him....but if I was a skeptic, I`d REALLY question it.

They did it because it`s Islamic custom to bury the body within 24 hours of death. Shows how tolerant people can be, this man killed thousands of people in the name of his religion and still his religious beliefs were respected after death. Also a sea burial stops pilgrimages to his grave.

im sure they have images of the body. When they will be released, if ever, is the matter at hand.

i am willing to bet, they dont release them right away, for fear of backlash from militant groups.

They buried the body at sea to keep with Islamic law, that is fine. While many, including me, would rather see his head on a post, it wouldn`t help matter. We cant do the wrong thing, just because someone else did the wrong thing to us. Someone has to be the better person. it is a tough pill to swallow, but it is the truth.

i) There is a compelling reason why they would dispose of the corpse at sea as soon as possible and in the utmost secrecy - they don`t want a martyrdom site for followers to visit.

ii) Publically announcing his death if he was still alive would be very foolish because any future announcement from him would be a massive propaganda victory for Al-Qaeda - they could say that their great leader is protected by their god and the USA are kill-happy infidels murdering innocents.

So it isn`t fishy for those two reasons.

There are still some possible conspiracy theories (without any evidence to support them, but that`s never mattered to conspiracy theorists). He might have been killed some time ago and the announcement delayed for political reasons. He might have been captured and is being held in some place they`re absolutely sure he can`t possibly escape from, so they can torture him for as long as they want without anyone knowing.
