  1. The helicopter that carried bin Laden’s body was also packed full of Navy SEALs. So packed that Matt Bissonette, who wrote a book about the raid (imagine that), said he sat on the deceased terrorist’s corpse during the entire flight.

    Traditional procedures for Islamic burial were followed. Bin Laden’s body was washed according to custom and placed in a white sheet. The body was next placed into a weighted bag.

    ** An example of the type of equipment that may have been used during bin Laden’s burial at sea.

    A military officer read religious remarks which were translated into Arabic by a native speaker. The body was then placed on a board on a platform. That board was tilted upward allowing the body to fall into the sea.

    The location of the burial at sea has not been released. No members of the Navy witnessed the event. No photographs or videos were taken.
