I guess we're screwed either way. At least we can claim we tried, not that it'd do any good.

As of June 2007, there were only two Muslim chaplains in the entire Navy, and I think the odds that one of them was on the Carl Vinson for OBL's burial would be pretty low. We probably made the call based entirely on the word of a lay leader.

Do you mean "Weird Stuff" as in "Donkey Show" weird stuff or "2 Girls 1 Cup" weird stuff?

Use your imagination. Or better yet, don't.

I find it humorous that Muslim scholars are decrying the fact that bin Laden did not recieve a "proper" Muslim burial yet have failed to mention the fact that he had a porn stash.

I don't think anyone takes Muslim grievances seriously anymore - because there's always an example of hypocrisy or contradiction to be found. They complain about "discrimination" when universities won't set up prayer rooms or have women-only hours in the gym, yet Muslim countries often forbid Christians from practicing openly anywhere. Muslims protest at rumors of Qur'ans getting burned, yet they burn Bibles and even desecrate their own holy books all the time. And of course, any U.S. killing of Muslims (even accidental) brings accusations of "great Satan", while Muslim terrorists bombing other Muslims doesn't.

A pretty detailed account of the raid. Two dozen SEALs, with two dozen more in reserve, they must've been expect one heck of a firefight.

An even more detailed account of the raid. (And an excellent read.)

The author even took the time to identify some weapons, M4s, MP7s, and P226s.
