President Obama executes Bin Laden and orders body to be quickly buried at sea

New York Times:  According to the account of  President Obama in a televised broadcast to the nation on May 1st 2011, Osama Bin Laden is dead.

Mr. Obama said that the reclusive Bin Laden was killed in Abbottabad, Pakistan following a sting operation conducted by CIA and military operatives which had been authorised by him.  Bin Laden is reported to have been shot in the eye and his body quickly buried at sea.

Americans greeted the news with public rejoicing in Times Square at the Ground Zero site and in downtown Washington tooting horns abounded.

Mr. Obama said: “For over two decades, Bin Laden has been Al Qaeda’s leader and symbol….the death of Bin Laden marks the most significant achievement to date in our nation’s effort to defeat Al Qaeda. But his death does not mark the end of our effort. There’s no doubt that Al Qaeda will continue to pursue attacks against us. We must and we will remain vigilant at home and abroad.”

Why his body was disposed off so quickly, bearing in mind the significance of his execution remains a mystery and will be sure to cause more controversy in light of the ‘birther’ and ‘grader’, and ‘Hawaii State authentication’ issues that are facing the president.  It is reported that skeptics of the event are saying that the announcement by the president may be a last ditch ploy to save his plummeting popularity, but Mr. Obama’s supporters are hailing the news as a trump card for the besieged president  facing an election challenge in 2012 which, by  all accounts so far, he will lose.
