Do you think it was proper that Osama Bin Laden was buried at sea?
I think it was an inspired idea, so that his burial site could not become a shrine.
More proper than he deserved, for sure, but brilliant.
I had a few ideas, but that seemed like a good way to handle it.
I guess I can forget about the stump shredder idea now.
I believe there is something in Islamic tradition about burying the body — as soon as possible — in an unmarked grave. It seems as if this was entirely appropriate, though perhaps unthought of in a desert environment.
I think it’s a good idea. As maryz said, it can’t become a shrine. And also, it can’t be dug up. He’s gone. No one will be able to disturb his “grave” this way.
If we were on Facebook, I’d be clicking *like* on all your comments, especially Jon’s. There’s nothing I can add.
