The Obama adminstration had quite the busy day yesterday. Let’s see, they got up, ate breakfast, read the paper, captured Osama Bin Laden, raided his ‘secret’ compound, removed the dead body to the USS Carl Vinson aircraft carrier, performed complex DNA testing and got the results back instantly, performed facial recognition investigative work, prepared the dead body in exact accordance to Muslim ritual, performed a burial at sea, and then headed out to happy hour. Funny thing that they just happened to have all those perfectly stored DNA samples from Bin Laden’s family from 2001 on the aircraft carrier to compare to.
Wow, what planning ahead! Almost like they…(wait for it)…planned it. Hmmm…Yes sir, that was quite the day. And if you believe that…
“According to senior Pentagon officials,the US used “multiple methods” to positively identify his remains. White House officials said the US had used “multiple methods” to positively identify Bin Laden’s remains.
They claimed the DNA evidence provided a match with 99.9 per cent confidence, although they did not immediately say where or how the testing was done.
President Barack Obama provided no details on the identification process.
The US is believed to have collected DNA samples from bin Laden family members in the years since the September 11, 2001 attacks that triggered the US-led invasion of Afghanistan. It was unclear whether the US also had fingerprints or some other means to identify the body on site.
US officials also said Bin Laden was identified through “facial recognition,” a reference to technology for mapping unique facial characteristics, but it was not clear exactly how the Navy SEAL troops performed the comparison.
Bin Laden was given religious rites aboard the USS Carl Vinson aircraft carrier, US military and intelligence officials said.” source – Perth Now
