If he died a long time ago, why wouldn't have they announced it then? Massive political boost, and justification for the war on terror

If they lied and he wasn't killed yesterday all it takes is one 1 video message reading out the weekends NFL results and Obama is proved a liar in front of his whole nation and stands 0 chance of re-election, no way they would risk that.

As far as I am concerned he is dead, which is a good thing.

That was my first thought when my Mum told me. I thought it was a joke. But honestly why bother lying about it now? What possible good could it do? The only time I think they'd even dare report his death is if they were absolutely sure it was him considering the possible backlash. What is it with people and always proposing a conspiracy theory? The news has just come out and you're proposing a conspiracy theory with absolutely nothing to go on except a few misquoted statements? Seriously, get a life.

The fact that some people still don't think the Moon Landings happened would suggest it's going to take more than a couple of pictures to prove it to all...




No matter what happens, some people won't believe it. Simple as that. Obama could invite them to go poke the body with a stick and they'd still say the whole thing was made up.

It would be very easy for Bin Laden to prove he is alive - just post another video of himself.
But maybe, of he is alive, he'll rejoice in more conspiracy, taking it as more hidden fear.
An bearded Arab could act as Osama, maybe there are 10 Osamas!?

Agree entirely. Bin Laden was an evil man but we criticised people for dancing in the streets when 9/11 happened....
Bit different.

I'm not so convinced by the conspiracies, but tbh my attitude to the whole thing is better the devil you know.

I hope they are going to produce some actual evidence that he's dead

I am skeptical but USA wouldn't make it so easy for Bin Laden to show them up, all he would have to do is pop up and say "hi guys I'm alive suckers."

Why would they fake it? If they did fake it, and Bin Laden made another video, Obama would be screwed. It just wouldn't be worth the risk.

At this exact moment there are 5000 people in Hollywood wearing out their keyboards to get their first draft done before midday.

I estimate it'll be done in time for a September 11th release.

Ha, maybe so! I just want them to come out with the evidence of his death now!
So I can either rejoice in it or slate it completely.

That's all weird.

No photographic evidence (apart from some blurry pictures that show some dead Arab - could be anyone)
His body "was buried in the sea" - yeah, right.

I think USA has been chasing a ghost and just found some random similar-looking arab, killed him and now celebrate "we killed number 1 terrorist".

Either Bin Laden has been dead for some years, or he is still alive, but he was not killed by the US soldiers yesterday.

Maybe Osama Bin Laden never even existed.

They're probably laundering money, or something.
Why would the US now, after 10 years, say he's only JUST died if they were lying?

He's been buried in the sea (he was going to be cremated as well) to prevent his body being used as a religious image for inspiring hatred by other Extremists.

But no, he is definitely dead. They found out where he was, sent in a Navy Seal Team, (I believe?) and shot him in a firefight. I bet that kill-team is feeling mighty pleased right about now, throw in a few medals there.

You should be happy, not trying to find excuses why he isn't. The man killed 3,000 people, inspired hatred against the West for decades and supported two wars in the Middle East, along with the potential possession of WMDs and the Pakistani-Deal.

Whether he's dead or not, it's all a conspiracy.
He could be dead, and US must have done that for some reasons. Why this time specifically when the arab world is upside down?
He may not have been killed, and may not produce a video to contradict the news because as I have already said it's a manipulated conspiracy.

Not really much of a gain. Sure, we killed the ****er, hope he burns in hell, but it's likely Al-Qaeda were grooming a replacement between 2001-2010 because Bin Laden was getting old. But still, I'm glad the little **** is dead, hopefully it brings some kind of comfort to those who have lost loved ones from this man's planning and scheming

But at the end of the day, we may have created a martyr...

anyway.. YAY!
