I think he died way before they told he did but there is definitely proof. This was their get out of jail free card. They held onto it until the right time to bring us over to their side.

We have credible information that Bin Laden died some time ago of a disease,” Iranian Intelligence Minister Heydar Moslehi stated in a cabinet meeting. “If the US military and intelligence apparatus have really arrested or killed Bin Laden, why don’t they show him [his body]? Why have they thrown his corpse into the sea?”

Fox News, The New York Times, and the President of Pakistan – who was speaking with CNN – all reported years prior to 2011 that Osama Bin Laden had died from an illness. It was also disclosed in 2002 that Israeli intelligence had concluded that the infamous Bin Laden died in December of the previous year.

I think he is gone. Maybe before we said that he died but either way he is gone. Not sure why we were trying to hunt him down and kill him anyway.

Despite the fact that the White House released “situation room” photos which purported to show Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, Joe Biden and the rest of Obama’s security staff watching the raid which killed Bin Laden live, it was later admitted by CIA director Leon Panetta that Obama could not have seen the raid because the live feed was cut off before the Navy SEALS entered the compound. The photos were described by many as having “historical significance,” forming a “captivating” record of Obama’s greatest success and being the “defining moment” of his Presidency. One image showed Hillary Clinton with her hand over her mouth as if witnessing an anxious or crucial moment in the raid. Media reports at the time claimed that the photos represented the moment when “The leader of the free world saw the terror chief shot in the left eye.” However, the photos were staged as a PR stunt for public consumption, nobody in the photos ever saw Bin Laden killed live, nor did they see the Navy SEALS even enter the compound.

Almost every single neighbor that lived near the alleged Bin Laden compound in Abbottabad that was interviewed by news reporters said with absolute certainty that they had never seen Bin Laden and that they knew of no evidence whatsoever to suggest he lived there.

The only thing I need to know about OBL is that he is finally dead and may all those who follow in his footsteps soon join him. Not because of their religious affiliation, ideals, and/or hatred of the US Government, rather their taking it out on innocents across the globe - slaughtering men, women, teens, children, and babies who have nothing whatsoever to do with them or any of their agendas. Aggravating such a depraved"human being" such as these fanatics is America's malicious folly which they seem pleased to trade for the special interests of a war profiteering Congress and economy. More disturbing that that was Bush protecting him after 9/11. The question is: who are the more vile barbarians and savages? What does America see when it looks in the mirror? Or does it ever? 50 years later (since the first ground troops hit the Vietnamese soil and 58,000 of our kids died) the carnage continues without s single solitary victory to show for any of it other than some holding a fistful of dollars and others some oil.

With the attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon on Sept. 11, 2001, Bin Laden was elevated to the realm of evil in the American imagination once reserved for dictators like Hitler and Stalin. He was a new national enemy, his face on wanted posters. He gloated on videotapes, taunting the United States and Western civilization.

I have been investigating al-Qaeda and Bin Laden for the BBC for nearly two decades - a quest which has taken me from the caves of Tora Bora to the high-walled Pakistani compound where he met his bloody end. So is there any truth in this latest theory?

The alleged body of Bin Laden was hastily dumped in the sea to prevent any proper procedure of identification. The White House claimed this was in accordance with normal Islamic burial rituals, however numerous Muslim scholars all over the globe disputed this claim, pointing out that Muslims can only be buried at sea if they die at sea. While the White House claimed that Bin Laden’s death on May 1st was proven by DNA and facial recognition evidence, such proof was never released for public scrutiny and the Obama administration refused to release photos of Bin Laden’s dead body, suggesting a cover-up.

Geez this was a highlight of Obama's presidency. Why can't both sides agree on this fact. No one has heard anything from Bin Laden in years. No one of those videos or updates on his twitter. Give it up, this guy was done in by the GREAT U S of A!

He didn't think GW would go so hard to find him. I do not like that we had to spend so much money and lose so many lives fighting this war that we are not even sure he started, but when Bush said he would not take defeat as an answer he meant it.

Hersh was calling to ask about the photographs of bin Laden’s burial at sea — carried out, the U.S. government said, in accordance with Islamic custom — that Bowden had described in detail at the end of ‘‘The Finish,’’ as well as in an adaptation from the book that appeared in Vanity Fair. ‘‘One frame shows the body wrapped in a weighted shroud,’’ Bowden had written. ‘‘The next shows it lying diagonally on a chute, feet overboard. In the next frame, the body is hitting the water. In the next it is visible just below the surface, ripples spreading outward. In the last frame there are only circular ripples on the surface. The mortal remains of Osama bin Laden were gone for good.’’

Events on the night of the raid to kill Bin Laden still raise questions. He was shot dead within 12 minutes of the first Seals - members of the US Navy's special operations force - landing.

This should not even be a discussion but once again our government is so shady. The number one terrorist in the world and we have to ask ourselves if it really went down the way they tell us it did.
