Where No One May Find Him.

Chances are this won't be the first place you'll find out that US forces have killed Osama bin Laden.  Although I would have prefered they captured him alive so he could be tried I'm not upset he's worm food.  But now an obvious question is what to do with his body.  I've already seen nonsense about wrapping him in pigskin or ideas along those lines.  Such ideas are childish and will simply incite violence.  The best thing to do with his remains is to dispose of them in such a way that they cannot be located again.  Bury him in an unmarked grave in a randomly chosen graveyard.  Better yet cremate him and scatter his ashes to the four winds.  This will make sure his corpse cannot become a relic, an idol,  a focus of veneration by those foolish enough to fall for his bullshit ideas.  Do all this in secret and only announce it after the fact, so that the act of disposing of his remains cannot be used by his followers, and the date it happened cannot become a day of memorial.  He doesn't deserve the attention.
