Apart from all the witnesses they have been interviewing on the news.

Oh, but i forgot, you don't actually read/watch the news, your too unintelligent for that :rolleyes:
*You're

I've been following the BBC news since morning and they've changed parts of their story 4 times now. Every time they change parts of the story or add to it, it seems like its too convienant to be true. Alas I'll keep following it, see if they can provide some hard evidence.

If there was a fire in the vicinity, wouldn't there be more eyewitnesses? Apart from Syed Hussain and a guy tapping away at his keyboard on twitter, no one in the vicinity witnessed a fire or raid it seems.
Some one also took a photo of the fire on their mobile phone.

It was the first picture in the gallery of pictures that I linked you to.

Also, if you bothered to read the article about the tweeter, you would realise that there were also multiple people tweeting the same thing in the area.

Since you are a troll, you wouldn't realise this.

Gosh.

I get the idea that we shouldn't believe everything the news tells us, I myself am one of those people that are very sceptical of the news and the media.

But the president is saying the same thing
Most presidents and prime ministers from the entire world are saying the same thing.
There's DNA evidence.
Surely with their reputations at stake, and the death of the WORLDS (not just america) most wanted man, they'd want to be SURE of his death before they published it?

What's the alternative? Believe some no lifers on the internet who have nothing better to do than add up the current day and link it to some irrelevant event in history that mathematically links together - therefore they HAVE To have some correlation, and it was all planned by the government.
Get real.

In islam the body should be buried within 3 days underground not in a day under the sea.
The body should be buried 'the same day' or 'within 24 hours'

It is usually under ground, but it is perfectly acceptable to be at sea.

Given the risks involved with burying him 'normally' under ground, the sea is the best option.

Enough said.

What exactly have they been changing?
Give me examples, with proof, of what they have been changing.

Seriously, stop.

It was 1am.

In a wealthy suburb.

Suburbs are quiet even at 1pm, I live in one as do many others on here.

If you see the google map images of where the compound was, it was pretty remote, very remote actually.
For those who WERE awake, they heard the helicopters (the guy on twitter), phone lines were cut (some other guy on twitter couldn't reach his family) but you're talking as if it happened at 12pm on a Saturday and there were crowds of people who should've saw everything and wrote about it.

It happened around 1am,
I'd assume him and his guards were asleep, if not relaxed and resting somewhat.
Plus the entire thing happened within 40 minutes including entering the house and finding him.
If he was asleep - which I assume - and it was in the dead of night, finding any mode of escape would have been hard considering the planes would've surrounded the entire compound, surely? Moving a 6'5, frail (supposedly he suffered from hepatitis) half asleep old man, and finding a route of escape in the dead of night isn't as easy as it sounds.

Think about these things before you start spouting random theories.
Yeah they would have been less watchful at like 3am considering they probably never expected it, but surely they must have had safe rooms with escape tunnels - especially if the building was custom built to house a major terrorist.

A source over 10 years old.

Which states itself that there was no evidence it was true (that they had him, or were going to hand him over), they were just having talks about it. What else needs to be said?

It's called keeping an open mind about things. Assuming the raid took place, America had a tip off of the compound after a courier sent there 8 months ago, if that's true then Osama was staying there for more than 8 months, how come the local residents had no clue of this? How can a terrorist so big live in a community for 8 months and go unnoticed? Even so when there's a military base in the vicinity?

If you're watching Sky News, there's a military official who just said that there was "family" inside the compound, and Bin Laden used a woman as a shield from the gunfire.

Based on that it's clear that he had no route of escape, whether any escape tunnel was unreachable - or he just didn't have one, he seemed cornered.

Not over 10 years old check the date again.

Everything just seems to 'perfect' to me.

When someone is shot in the head, especially with the sort of high-calibre weapon typically used by the military, it makes a bit of a mess.
People probably wouldn't react very nicely to a corpse that has its head half inside-out.
You also don't need to autopsy that sort of thing.
I don't think anyone (important) seriously cares if he was suffering from other non-fatal ailments.
Still, it won't be too long before pics are released and/or leaked, I bet.

As for the helicopter, as reported by the various sources, it was deliberately destroyed by the crew after they left, such that the remains could not fall into enemy hands.

I think it's reasonable to say that someone like bin Laden would have weapons to hand. Weapons aren't exactly difficult to get hold of over there...
It's also logical that they would then use them, which would make capturing them impossible. Hence they were shot and killed.
