Osama bin Laden: Is He Really Dead?

I've been waiting for this little bit of news for ten years now. I am disappointed to have to say tonight, I'm not sure that I believe it.

Straight from his 2012 threat (Donald Trump) and the countless cries of "Forgery!" that have echoed since the birth certificate release (Did you really think I was alone?), this little development strikes me as far too timely. Something in me refuses to not ask the question, is this a desperate attempt by an ever-less-popular political schemer to revamp his image into a successful American leader, just in time for election season?

Of course, lying about this is quite risky, not to mention enormously dark. I want to see the body, I can tell you that much (of course it is possible that if this story is indeed true his face...well, isn't quite pretty). How long does a DNA test take, anyone know? Depends on how recent the kill was supposed to be, I guess.... There are countless reasons why I could be wrong here. Obviously I don't know, and I would love nothing more than to be proven wrong. The death of a monster is something I'm not afraid to smile at.

But you'll forgive me if I have difficulties trusting our current "fearless leader".

Is it weird that this is almost verbatim what I was thinking late last night...?

THANK YOU!!! I honestly thought I was the only one who found it a little fishy.

Allegedly he was killed sometime on Sunday, and did you hear what the best part is? We DUMPED HIS BODY IN THE OCEAN. Supposedly we've got a "very very graphic" photo of his body (which I want to see btw), but there's a debate as to whether or not it should be released.

Let's get Trump to ask for it, haha!

OK. So at least I'm not the only one. We smelt a rat....

So I hear he received a double-tap to the side of his face. That would result in one nasty photo...but still, we must see it.

And so we "buried" him at sea...ok, this is dang sketchy.

I saw the picture on Facebook yesterday, and to be quite honest with you, it's not nearly as bad as I expected... especially with having friends in the military and knowing the kind of guns they use.

And he was buried at sea because of "Muslim customs." Not that we ever gave a flip about the customs of prisoners of war before.

And I also read on CNN or some related news article that only a handful of people in Washington even knew about this raid. The more I read about this the more questions I have. So I'd say more than likely we're not going to be hearing from Osama for a while, but I find it very hard to believe he's dead.

The only "picture" I've seen is the clearly fake one...looks like an internetz amateur. Did I miss something?
