The correct Islamic traditions for burying the dead is not at sea. These are the correct burial methods:
…BURIAL OF THE DEAD BODY IN A GRAVE ON THEIR RIGHT SIDE WITH THEIR HEAD FACING MECCA!
And,
Burial rituals should normally take place as soon as possible
Bathing the body, except in extraordinary circumstances (as in battle of Uhud)
After enshrouding the dead body in a white cotton or linen cloth. Funeral prayer is also included.

Here is one of many references: http://islam.about.com/cs/elderly/a/funerals.htm

    OBL was abroad when he was killed, just as sailors of the Caliphate would have been if they died in action.

    You believe they’d have kept those rotting bodies aboard until the next port of call?

      No, they would have dumped them. It turns out that burying at sea is the last resort. However, Obama made it sound like it was THE only way to bury a dead muslim. I personally don’t think OBL is really dead anyway.
