What, if anything at all, was going though the church official's mind when s/he transcribed "Osama Bin Laden (recently deceased)"!

Given the Christian directive to love one's enemies and to pray for the dead, what exactly is the issue with praying for OBL and how can a Christian cleric justify a refusal to pray for somebody?

It's probably down to an unhealthy obsession with reason and logic.

RIP Indeed. Definitely not the stereotypical politician, sometimes a little aloof. There is an anecdote about how he was on a constituency visit down to Cork in the mid 80s, and saw all the red and white flags on poles as Cork went towards another hurling All Ireland Final. Apparently he was astonished at the depth of support for Lech Walesa and the Solidarity Polish Party in Cork :)

RIP Garrett, you did well.
