Former Spec Ops soldier calls burial at sea a ‘mistake’

Glenn interviewed Michael Yon, a former Special Ops soldier, on radio this morning about the death of Osama bin Laden and his burial at sea.

Glenn asked Yon what he thought of bin Laden being buried at sea following Muslim practices.

“Well, you know, we’ve been saying for years now that he’s not representative of Muslims. So why should we, you know, respect Muslim tradition if we’re saying that he’s not a Muslim?” Yon said.

“There’s going to be a lot of conspiracy theories no matter what. There always will be. But there’s also a big swing vote among the rational people as well. And so I think to allay any concerns of them, it’s always, it would be helpful if more experts from different countries had a chance to look at him but, you know, what’s done is done. Let’s see how it pans out,” he added.
