I'm not surprised so many suspicions about Bin Laden's death are rife. The US forces had Obama's instructions to kill him, but I think that at least the Secretary-General of the UN, or another of its senior officials, should have been invited to view the body and confirm it's identity.
As it is, the indecent haste and the method in which the body was disposed of raises more questions about Bin Laden's death than it answers, and is also more likely to inflame the desires of Islamic extremists for revenge. Would holding the body for a few more hours before making an official announcement really have made any difference in the circumstances?
If Obama really wanted Bin Laden killed, then I think he made a big mistake here. It may have helped boost his political credibility for the moment, but his personal kudos will quickly fade if the US is once again seriously targeted by the leading fanatics Bin Laden helped to groom.
Britain, already a well-known breeding ground for Islamic terrorists, will also not thank him. We have enough financial problems without having to spend yet more on our own homeland security, unless of course our government does the sensible thing and pulls our troops out of the expensive, bloody and futile war in Afghanistan since it is now more than ever an irrelevance. Let's not forget 7/7 and the subsequent British terrorist activities which were mercifully foiled. This country's true enemy is, and has been for years, within our shores.
They were saying on the TV last night that it's unlikely he would have been identifiable, as he was shot in the face, but, Obama wanted a DNA test done!
