U.S. officials tell me the last thing they want is for his burial place to become a terrorist shrine.
To avoid that, an informed source tells me, the intention is the bury his body at sea -- leaving no definitive location for the final resting place of his body.

You never know… they could be telling the truth..!!?? I really want to believe them, it's just so hard,
The US decided to bury him at sea because it would have been difficult finding a country willing to accept the remains of the world's most wanted terrorist, the official said.
After bin Laden was killed in a raid by US forces in Pakistan, senior administration officials said the body would be handled according to Islamic practice and tradition.
That practice calls for the body to be buried within 24 hours, the official said.
The official did not immediately say where the body was buried at sea.
It was earlier repored that bin Laden's body had been moved to Afghanistan. It has been reported DNA tests confirmed his death.

There's nothing in the muslim practices that would require one to be buried in the sea.

There are always people claiming that someone isn't dead. Hitler. Elvis, the list goes on. If he is dead tell me what would you do with the body. Preserve him like Lenin? Have a Muslim burial? So there can be a funeral procession? They can't do anything but bury him at sea. Otherwise there stands a chance of pilgrimages for the next 1000 years.

Well here we go. No matter what there will always be a question as to the validity of his death now. Even if they come out with pics tomorrow. The pics will be scrutinized and photoshop claims will abound (which may be valid).
