Good post, Mr. Tovey.

But you're wrong about OBL not getting proper burial. Shortly after he was tipped into the sea, a huge cloud of dead fish and crabs floated to the surface. The Qaida people saw it, send divers under it, and retrieved their great leader's body for burial on the coast of Belochistan. But since OBL was a Wahhabi, his grave was left unmarked--along with those of the divers who retrieved it, for the poison released was so great that not even the divers' wetsuits, masks, and oxygen tanks could protect them.
