@Sasha2011: He was buried at sea because Islamic custom is that a body must be buried within 24 hours.

@KatyElle:  And per the news…they put the body in the ocean because they didn’t want to bury it somewhere and have people visit it as a memorial site…

Now I’m confused.

Last night it was reported that DNA testing confirmed that Osama was killed.

Today, CNN is reporting DNA testing is “under way” to confirm it was Osama. And that the photo of Osama (shot in the head) was “unrecognizable” as him.

@KatNYC2011: I agree. I do understand the religious aspect of “burying him at sea” but…. hmm, I guess I’m a little skeptical by nature because the whole thing just seems sort of off to me. I feel like there is a piece of the puzzle we are still missing.

I told Kingy to keep his eyes open when he went to work in the city this morning and if he sees something that looks off, get out of there– I feel like as Americans we immediately see the threat because we have experienced a lot of terrorism and I was worried that my wonderful, trusting Australian fiance from a country where things like that don’t really happen wouldn’t think to be on his toes. 

 

That being said (possible retaliation), and the fact that we still have a long way to go and this is really a symbolic victory because I’m sure he has 10 successors, I think we should still celebrate. We’ve (not me personally, but our brave men and women who have been fighting) been trying to do this for 10 years. It wasn’t easy. Try to look at this positively, guys. Yeah its only one man and it doesn’t really change much, but it is a victory nonetheless.

@Birdie Love: 

 That Fox News that made the error is the local broadcast channel which is in no way affiliated with The Fox News Network. Just wanted to throw that out there before the Fox News Network bashing began. Thanks!
