Bin Laden Son Calls Burial at Sea ‘humiliating’

From the Christian Science Monitor:

A statement purporting to come from a son of Osama bin Laden denounced the al Qaeda leader’s killing as “criminal” and said his burial at sea had humiliated the family, an online monitoring service said.

The statement, attributed to Omar bin Laden, bin Laden’s fourth eldest son, said the al Qaeda chief’s children reserved the right to take legal action in the United States and internationally to “determine the true fate of our vanished father”, the SITE Intelligence Group said.There was no independent confirmation of the authenticity of the letter, published on the website of Islamist ideologue Abu Walid al-Masri, although several specialists on militant propaganda said the text appeared genuine.

Well, I feel badly about that. Imagine the bin Laden family feeling humiliated. He’s lucky I didn’t get to decide what to do with the body. I’d have stuck Osama’s head on a pike at Ground Zero.
