since a navy seal team conducted the killing no money there but its possible someone in the small town gave some info that could be worth the $25 000 000. They mentioned the bounty on CNN and had no details on it yet,

Couple of interesting quotes from BBC:

"A US official quoted by Associated Press news agency said Bin Laden's body had been buried at sea, although this has not been confirmed."

I guess being one bird short , they had to ditch some weight on the ride home :P

Also:

"The Abbottabad residence is just 700m (800 yards) from the Pakistan Military Academy - the country's equivalent of West Point."

I know someone mentioned it was in the AO, but 700m?! thats just ridiculous!

Oddly enough, May 1st is the same day Hitler was killed in 1945.
Hitler killed himself on 30 April, 1945.


Wow, today is going to be a good day!!!!!!!!
So, there I was....

In the land of his birth, reports of the death of Saudi-born Osama bin Laden in Pakistan surfaced early on Monday morning, sparking mixed emotions ranging from cheers, mourning, denial, to a stream of conspiracy theories.

Well well.  I was here on course at CFNES on my QL5 when 9/11 happened and I am once again here on a career course.  The circle has been closed.

A banner day indeed.   Our turn to go out in the streets and shout for joy.

Here is the last night's Globe and Mail, updated today.

Quote
His death may not diminish the Taliban insurgency, which portrays itself as an Afghan nationalist jihad against foreign invaders, and could inspire a new spasm of violence in reaction to what they will likely call the martyrdom of a Muslim idol.

I suspect this statement may very well happen.

What is an interesting reaction in Pakistan is outrage that the US mounted an operation in their country NOT that OBL was found living comfortably in one of their cities just a short distance from a police station and a military academy.The outrage ought to be how corrupt the security forces were.

For all the death and destruction this POS caused, no remorse and the world is a better place for having been rid of him.

To the US troops who got him, good job!

I'm sure that his being there was no real secret to many in Pakistan.

Official explanation for the burial at sea was that no other country would take him.

They must have forgotten to call Somalia  :P

Should probably have said "no country that we trust."

Hitler killed himself on 30 April, 1945.
The body of the allegedly dead Hitler was never produced either.

I don't believe it for a second.  "Yep, we killed him!"
                                                 "Any pictures?"
                                                 "Errr, no, sorry, the camera battery died."
                                                 "Where's the body?"
                                                 "Ummmm... we dumped it in the ocean."
                                                 "And nobody had a cell phone or camera?"
                                                 "Nope, damned inconvenient too, sorry"
                                                 "I'm thinking it's the exact polar opposite of inconvenient, actually."
Apparently, a "USUAL SUSPECT"

“In peace there's nothing so becomes a man as modest stillness and humility; but when the blast of war blows in our ears, then imitate the action of the tiger; stiffen the sinews, summon up the blood, disguise fair nature with hard-favor'd rage.”

So I guess this means he fled to Argentina Venezuela.   >:D

When I read about his body being handled in accordance with Muslim tradition, my initial reaction was a bit mixed. Then, when I thought rationally about it, that's just another reason we're better than "them". I'm sure that Daniel Pearl's body was handled in accrodance with ?Jewish? tradition.  ::)

At least with staying in accordance with Islamic customs and burying the dead within a certain time limit, the US has 'honoured' him in that way.  The burial at sea, prevents his having a tomb or other structure built over his body to commemorate/glorify him as a martyr.  There are enough scavengers swimming in the oceans to quickly dispose of his remains.
