Navy captain asks bin Laden burial crew to be safe
Capt. Bruce Lindsey talked to reporters Monday in a teleconference call from the ship. It’s scheduled to return to San Diego Wednesday, ending a six-month deployment.
Lindsey wouldn’t comment on bin Laden’s burial, except to say appropriate precautions are being taken for the crew’s safety.
Lindsey says he has been working with family readiness groups to ensure no details slip out on Facebook or other social media sites that would compromise that.
Pentagon officials say a weighted bag carrying bin Laden’s body was placed on a board and tipped into the North Arabian sea.
