It's rather remarkable! apparently the U.S Government had a Bin laden cross match DNA sample,(how it was obtained, a need to know bases only, in the interest of National Security)when Bin laden was shot. His DNA was on site collected, processed in record time and confirmed in a few hours. Right before, ensuring this International "terrorist" is given a proper Islamic Ceremony & burial, and shoved off of the deck of a USS Navy vessel. This was nothing short of some kinda divine miracle, I just tear up at the thought of it.:-(

I know in the past that if you want to have a DNA test done they say that it will take about 2 weeks for the tests to come back. It only took them 1 hour to peform this one. What DNA did they have on file to match this up to????

I'm happy I'm not the only one asking this...

My father in law gave me the deer/headlight look when I asked him that.

Do most folks know this guy was once our buddy?
Like Ghaddafi, Saddam, Mubareck, and Anwar al-Awlaki- Who was even a guest at the pentagon- before and after attacking and such...
What good pals, eh?

It does seem strange that, after searching for such a high profile target for so long a time, they would just toss the body into the sea within 24 hours. I think the explanation of giving Bin Laden a proper Muslim burial is rediculous. They didn't do that for Sadam's sons, and I doubt they do that for Taliban insurgents.

Think about this. Let's assume that Bin Laden wanted to retire from the terror business. He doesn't want to turn himself in, but he doesn't want to spend his remaining years on the run as well. If Bin Laden had some information (or some specific item) that would be useful to the United States, what would the US offer him back in return?

Let's just assume for the moment that Obama and his cronies are telling the truth for one and that the SEALS took out Usama and then in a fit of tolerance dropped his body at sea to pacify Islamics. Ok.

A radio news show last night featured a man who has authored a book on Gitmo, Interrogation, the CIA, Al-Quaida, and Osama. He mentioned that Obama had also ordered another Al-Quaida boss killed instead of taken alive; Saleh Ali Saleh Nabhan. This author asked an interesting question: Why would Obama order Nabhan and bin Ladin killed instead of captured alive? If they were captured alive, then wouldn't we have interrogated them to learn what we could?

His hypothesis was that each of these terrorists were ordered killed instead of captured because with Gitmo closed and the CIA interrogation team disbanded, Obama would have had to admit he screwed up, reopened Gitmo and put together the CIA team that apparently worked. Just something to think about.

Apparently, his sister had some surgery in a Boston hospital and that's where the comparative sample was sourced. Not sure how that squares with HIPAA..

Yep, the CIA and State Department have been making documets for years to make travel in foreign countries easier. DNA would be as snap......especially with his sisters brain on hand.

That's why Obama's poll numbers took only a hop.........and not a bounce.

And that's all due to the republican-backed commodities traders who bid up the price of crude oil to ridiculous levels. They get rich, give huge contributions to the repubs to entice them to turn a blind eye, and we suffer the consequences of higher cost for anything that needs to be transported. Your darling Trump couldn't do squat to change that fact.

Barack did what King George was too unfocused and brainless to do. But you Obama haters are so unwilling to acknowledge the accomplishments of a (shudder, gasp!) BLACK President that you accept the first bit of filth from the conspiracy nuts instead of the truth.
