I see that the US is saying that they have buried Bin Laden's body at sea after confirming it is him via a DNA test and other means.

I think it's great that we finally got the guy after all this time, effort and lost lives. Chapter closed but not the book.

So, OBL was living inside of some vast fortress on the outskirts of Islamabad and not in a cave hidden away in the mountains of the Afghanistan/Pakistan border. A bit surprising after all this time.

Kinda fitting, since it was Navy SEALs who did the deed.

Agreed - al Q will hit back - when and how is the question.

His compound was 800 yards from the Pakistani equivalent of Sandhurst and West Point. The area is the favoured domicile of retired Pakistani army brass, too. Try telling me there weren't elements of the ISI and Pak gov't who didn't know he was there. Bullshit. The place is less than one hour from Islamabad.

Are you shitting me? He must have been paying a lot of people off. How could he get away with building this complex and not be seen or suspected?

I see now they are saying that they have had this area under watch since - last August? Is it just me as seeing this as weird or does this seem to be a reasonable amount of time to be sure about him actually being there?

It's interesting that Pakistan allowed US military onto their soil to commit this act - this is unheard of. Especially as they were harbouring him.

In any case, it is not the end of Al Qaeda, as it is a dispersed organisation. bin Laden was known to be ill with kidney disease for several years, it would be astonishing if there was no succession plan in place.

The burial at sea is to prevent his grave becoming a site for pilgrimage and Osama a martyr. Martyrs are revered in Islam and are often the focus for popular movements.
