Many of us, myself in particular, were repulsed and outraged by the revelation that the US military was forced to bury Osma bin Laden according to Islamic precepts, and that it was the priority of the Obama administration that it be done right -- much preparation was made prior to the kill. They couldn't decide on releasing the pictures prior to the kill, but studying Islamic texts and preparing for an Islamic burial, that was what the Obama administration deemed important.
Brennan explained that the burial took place earlier this morning and that “it was determined that it was in the best interest of all involved that this burial take place again – according to Islamic requirements – at sea.” It was unanimous among Muslim experts that this was the best way to handle it.

Ltc Joe "enlightens" us on what is required for an "islamic burial." Were our soldiers forced to chant "allahu akbar" over the body of the biggest mass murdering monster of Americans in the cause of jihad? The same war cry that the 19 Muslim terrorists were screaming as the planes hit the towers.
Do the thousands of students and proud Americans who spontaneously took to the streets on the news that bin laden was killed know that Obama commanded such a grotesque act of submission?
Few realize that it requires the "loud recitation of the four tabkbirs"(allahu akbar). See Fiqh Us-Sunnah: Funerals and Dhikr by As-Sayyid Sabiq, page 39.
The idea that we, as Americans, supported, endorsed and recited "allahu akbar" loudly four times on the back of the USS Carl Vinson as a part if his funeral would disgust most Americans.
Can you imagine the reaction of the 9/11 families when they learn we recited the battle cry of the terrorists when disposing of bin laden?
