Nothing is Adding Up in Osama's Death

The torrent of un-truths that flood from Capitol Hill hasn't seemed to dilute the Kool-aid the sheeple are drinking.  With no concrete evidentuary proof, revillers celebrate another Obama administration claim, shrouded in doubt.

Let's take the claim:

U.S. officials told CBS News that bin Laden's body would be handled in accordance with Muslim traditions, which include strict rules on burial taking place within 24 hours after death.

A sea-burial was done so that a shrine wouldn't be harbored at his burial site.

Um, so, the Navy Seals can covertly blow-up a compund, but not keep the area of burial in secrecy??

Islam holds an at-sea burial as a last-resort...and only to be done if the persone died AT SEA and it was impossible to return body to land before decay begins.  Not this whole 24-hour urgency situation.


The Muslim Faith,  Burial at Sea and Cremation

 It must be understood that while this information was furnished by reliable sources, there are many different opinions between those of Muslim faith, and any Muslim contemplating cremation or burial at sea should seek proper council .

Rules About Burial of the Dead Body

620. * It is obligatory to bury a dead body in the ground, so deep that its smell does not come out and the beasts of prey do not dig it out, and, if there is a danger of such beasts digging it out then the grave should be made solid with bricks, etc.

621. If it is not possible to bury a dead body in the ground, it may be kept in a vault or a coffin, instead.

622. The dead body should be laid in the grave on its right side so that the face remains towards the Qibla.

623. * If a person dies on a ship and if there is no fear of the decay of the dead body and if there is no problem in retaining it for sometime on the ship, it should be kept on it and buried in the ground after reaching the land. Otherwise, after giving Ghusl, Hunut, Kafan and Namaz-e-Mayyit it should be lowered into the sea in a vessel of clay or with a weight tied to its feet. And as far as possible it should not be lowered at a point where it is eaten up immediately by the sea predators.
