    Send his body out of the country he hated. Send him back to his parents who do not live in the US and who blame America for his death.

    So they cut off his head and stripped off his armor and sent messengers throughout the land of the Philistines, to carry the good news to the house of their idols and to the people. They put his armor in the temple of Ashtaroth, and they fastened his body to the wall of Beth-shan. 1 Samuel 31:9–10 ESV

    Why wouldn't they send it to his parents?

    Why is the US Government funded by the American tax payer in anyway responsible for the return of this body? It was a favor to him he was in this nation in the first place, and took that opportunity to do harm to our citizens. For that matter, it can be thrown in the nearest dumpster.

    Could bury it a grave with a pig, if it would actually serve as a deterrent:

    "...Colonel Alexander Rodgers of the 6th Cavalry who accomplished by taking advantage of religious prejudice what the bayonets and Krags had been unable to accomplish. Rodgers inaugurated a system of burying all dead juramentados in a common grave with the carcasses of slaughtered pigs. The Mohammedan religion forbids contact with pork; and this relatively simple device resulted in the withdrawal of juramentados to sections not containing a Rodgers. Other officers took up the principle, adding new refinements to make it additionally unattractive to the Moros. In some sections the Moro juramentado was beheaded after death and the head sewn inside the carcass of a pig. And so the rite of running juramentado, at least semi-religious in character, ceased to be in Sulu. The last cases of this religious mania occurred in the early decades of the century...."

    Cremate his corpse and put the ashes in a pressure cooker, and then leave it on the stoop of his parents home.

    Give him a Christian burial in an unmarked grave. Post a picture of the funeral for the benefit of his jihadist friends.

    As much as we'd love to do as much as we could to this man who injured and killed so many, we are above that. We deserve everything that this man is most likely receiving right now because of our sin as well. We are no better than him.

    But because we are redeemed, we can turn around and just send this man's body back home to his family and show what true grace and honor are.

    At times we let our flesh get the best of us. Then we (assumably/hopefully) repent.

    For the commandment is a lamp and the teaching is light; And reproofs for discipline are the way of life ~ Proverbs 6:23

    I agree with Ann....we dont want it here, so pack it up in dry ice & sent him back to his stinkin parents, who probably motivated him in the 1st place.

    Send it to his grieving mother. with no fan fair or sign of when or where just box it up as Ann said and send it off.

    Note: i do not like his mother and from the rantings I have sene of her on the media, i think she is nutier than a fruit loaf. However, if we do not wish to come down to their level, we must do this thing honorably. If we do not wish to shame our Lord, we must do this honorably.

    As disturbing as having those that we've given refuge to turn on us and kill us?

    Interesting. As of two minutes ago, the lead story at:

    CNN.com - Where to bury the body.

    MSNBC - Where to bury the body.

    FoxNews.com - Whistleblower report about Benghazi

    DrudgeReport.com - Gore has $200 million in the bank

    NPR.org - Online Viagra Sales

    AP News - Israeli strikes on Syria

    Reuters - New York suing some banks over mortgages


    Interesting to see the differences in what they think is important to report on. Liberal news media is focusing on the bomber's body; Fox is focusing on Benghazi; Drudge is focusing on Gore (why is that news???); but I guess NPR is the one that surprised me most....
