I can help feeling this all too neat

He was found in a compound, not far away from a mility compound, shot twice in the head, and buried at sea (according to 'muslim customs')
Shot in the head? why? surely they should have wanted to interrogate him extensively?
buried at sea? According to Wikipedia it should be as follows:
Quote
Burial rituals should normally take place as soon as possible and include:[1]

* Bathing the dead body, except in extraordinary circumstances as in battle of Uhud.
* Enshrouding dead body in a white cotton or linen cloth.
* Funeral prayer .
* Burial of the dead body in a grave.
* Positioning the deceased so that the head is faced towards Mecca (Makkah Al-Mukarramah).

Burial at Sea

If the death occurs at sea, and there is a fear of the decay of the body, the prayers should be recited, and the body lowered into the sea in a vessel of clay, or with weights tied to its feet. Additionally, if there is a concern about the exhumation and defiling of the body by an enemy, then it should be lowered into the sea in the same fashion.

In either situation, it should not be lowered to a point where it will be consumed immediately.

This is, however, a tradition, specific to each culture, and not found in the Quran. However, even in cases of drowning, all effort must be made to perform a burial in the ground.
if the case was, that the body would decay, if they had planned to off his ass, surely they would have made provision for a morgue or coldroom? and, why trundle his body along on a boat, when they can put it on a plane or chopper, and whiz him to the states or safe place quickly?

they have allready identified the body, that it is definitely him, via DNA mapping.
According to CNN reports
Quote
Officials compared the DNA of the person killed at the Abbottabad compound with the bin Laden "family DNA" to determine that the 9/11 mastermind had in fact been killed, a senior administration official said

Also to identify bin Laden, a visual ID was made. There were photo comparisons and other facial recognition used to identify him, the official said. A second official said that in addition to DNA, there was full biometric analysis of facial and body features.
but, according to reports, he was show twice in the head, and the reason they don't show the dead body, is cause half his head is blown to shit
i know diddly about DNA testing, but i have a mate that works at Ampath, it for a regular paternity test, it takes two weeks minimum. there seems to be about 4 different kinds of DNA testing, it according to the internet, it takes about 5 days to do. do they carry around a DNA tester kit around on missions? do you even get a kit to quickly test someone's DNA?
i would have found it more believeable if they had said, they used fingerprints.

the conspiracy theorist in me, finds this veeeeeery dodgy.

Do the math. The potential costs of lying about this far outweigh the potential benefits. Not close to elections, no key votes in the House, etc. As for the DNA evidence: http://blogs.nature.com/news/thegreatbeyond/2011/05/how_dna_could_confirm_bin_lade.html

I believe that the main reason for taking his body out to the aircraft carrier where the burial took place was to ensure that there is no actual grave that may serve as a rallying point. An area of the Arabian Sea does not appeal as much as a pile of sand and stones!

Not that pragmatism often makes it into politics, but a more practical conspiracy from the point of view of actually reconciling people and promoting peaceful coexistence among them would have been to do away with OBL quietly, without all the fanfare and behind a front of “plausible deniability.” That way, the issue would have died softly, albeit without the decade-delayed retribution. The world, after all, mostly has pretty much digested the events of 9/11 and moved on from them, so why concoct a fiction that opens up old wounds just for a brief moment of satisfied redress that so obviously works against the greater good?

It also makes it difficult to dance on his grave.
