    Look at dan's post. Apparently I'm not the only one who picked up on it.

This will be long forgotten come a year and a half from now.
    I don't know about that. You just know this is going to pop up in some "Protecting America" ad come next year and it will be very hard for the average American to vote against the guy that got bin Laden. He doesn't need to convince everyone, just enough to win. What it does succeed at is preventing Republicans from successfully making national security an issue.

    Re: Osama Bin Laden is dead

    To those saying anyone with a computer could have found him... How? Sort of tough to have an IP address with no computer.
    I have to admit OBL was pretty smart to not have a computer or phone knowing USA could find those too easily.

    The photos on net are fakes. Official hasn't been released. I'm thinking they will release at least one as millions will want some kind of proof, esp since they dumped him in the sea. Bet the coordinates don't get released.

    Re: Osama Bin Laden is dead

    Why am I still seeing conflicting stories about how Osama died? People are still saying he died of a lung infection of some kind.

    Is the U.S. claiming victory for for a death that was actually due to natural causes?

    Re: Osama Bin Laden is dead

    I still have reservations. Where is the proof? We don't even have his body now because its "at sea". Obama covering for Bush to retain the US's image? Since when did we care to respect the Islamic traditions of extremists?

    The India Times has more details, and even a picture of the alleged body:

    The Times of India: Latest News India, World & Business News, Cricket & Sports, Bollywood

    I am still skeptical myself. The story just seems too convenient.
