Obama assassinates Osama!

One week ago, CIA operatives entered a mansion in Pakistan and killed Osama bin Laden. (The announcement was delayed until the middle of tonight's episode of Trump's Celebrity Apprentice, which is not to imply that Obama is holding a grudge.)

UPDATE: The AP reports that the US handling of Osama's body will follow "Islamic tradition":
U.S. officials said the helicopter raid in Pakistan was carried out by CIA paramilitaries together with the elite Navy SEAL Team Six. The U.S. team took custody of bin Laden's remains, which American officials said were being handled in accordance with Islamic tradition. [Emph. added]
Do you think that that will be the same as the manner and tradition with which Al Qaeda handled the bodies of Westerners they had beheaded?

BREAKING UPDATE: Cindy Sheehan speaks (hat tip: BotW.):
"I am sorry, but if you believe the newest death of OBL, you're stupid. Just think to yourself--they paraded Saddam's dead sons around to prove they were dead--why do you suppose they hastily buried this version of OBL at sea? This lying, murderous Empire can only exist with your brainwashed consent--just put your flags away and THINK!"--Cindy Sheehan, May 2, 2011
If you doubt Ms. Sheehan's statement, remind yourself that the New York Times declared her to have "absolute moral authority," at least their columnist did claim that when it was a convenient thing to claim.
