Trashing Bin Laden

Is it important that the naval burial of Osama Bin Laden on the USS Carl Vinson was done according to Islamic traditions? I see both sides of the argument, but am tiring of seeing the according to Islamic tradition in every article on the subject.

In a semi-related point, when I was stationed in Bahrain, I lived around the corner from Coffee Bean. I used to go there after work to unwind and grab a cup of tea. They labeled their garbage can: Trash Bin. And I thought how easy it would be to add a Laden after the Bin. I did not, of course. I am a law-abiding Sailor, with a nagging, constant worry hovering over me about both the brig and jail. Hence, no action. Should you be stationed out in pleasant 5th Fleet, resist the temptation. . .
