Osama Bin Laden's Corpse and a Pentagon Power Point on his Compound

Osama bin Laden's corpse was taken to the aircraft carrier USS Carl Vinson, officials tell ABC News.

The process of his burial at sea was done in accordance with Muslim law -- a Muslim seaman conducted the process and said the proper prayers, with bin Laden's body wrapped in the appropriate way.

Administration officials say it's important to do this so as to not inflame the Muslim world.

The Pentagon, meanwhile, has provided a Power Point Presentation on the compound. See it here.
