    It's not just a different skin tone, though. The photos have two different resolutions. The top half is sharp and clear and the bottom half is blurry. I don't believe that this is a conspiracy theory of any sort, just a badly photoshopped photo. I saw the site that claimed to have the exclusive on that pic. I also read somewhere that there were no photos taken of Bin Laden's body.

    I like how conspiracy theorists think that secret societies and governments have the resources to pull massive hoaxes, but can't use photoshop as well as the people who make Burger King commercials.

    Its a confirmed hoax image circulating that's all. Thought i was onto something as well.

    Re: Osama Bin Laden is dead

    With respect to the purported photos circulating on the web, CNN reported, "No decision has yet been made on whether to release the photographs and if so, when and how."

    More importantly, CNN added, "A senior national security official told CNN that officials had multiple confirmations that the body was bin Laden's, saying they had the 'ability to run images of the body and the face.'"

    Operation was designed to kill bin Laden, source says - CNN.com

    IMO, there is virtually no chance that President Obama would have spoken before the U.S. last night if the U.S. didn't have extremely strong evidence that Bin Laden was killed in the raid. Too much would have been at stake.

    A good short term moral boost for people here, but it's likely that he wasn't calling the shots in the local area's of operation.
    Bush, and Obama, shouldn't have been overly concerned about Osama from a militaristic or tactical perspective. The man's ability to actually significantly influence things directly has been utterly and completely neutered. That doesn't mean they shouldn't be concerned from a closure stand point of getting him...and I do believe both were. But from a stand point of "concerned" regarding getting him for our safety or because he's dangerous...no, Bush was right and I think Obama likely felt his sentiments. Osama was not someone to be "concerned" about in that way any longer.

    No surprise though that you'll take something and attempt to twist its context to suit your partisan needs during a time like this though. Disney never does let a good situation go to waste for partisan slams. It's what hyperpartisans do.

    I'm trying to understand how Harry can say this was not 'justice'-- as if only justice happens in a court room... that's moronic. (it's an anti-Obama flip-flop, if you ask me...)
    You don't apparently read Harry often. You'd need to actually find some evidence of him "flip flopping" for you to occuse him of it. He'd likely say the exact same thing if Bush ordered this.

It's won almost every war. Has it found real, genuine peace?
    Not sure how far back in history you're going, but Israel as a Jewish land has been destroyed and it's people removed 3 times throughout history. I'm talking, temple demolished, jews moved into servitude or just plain told to leave. A treaty assigns the land to the Jews and calls it Israel in the 40s and they've been fighting against Muslims who claim it is their holy land first...except it wasn't. I wouldn't say they've "won every war" because it's pretty much the same war they've been fighting for 60 years.
