Yes, but Hajj is also a known alias of Bin Laden's I didn't know anything about pilgrimages to Mecca when I drew my conclusion. It's a good thing I was ignorant of this fact or I may have never found him.

Reuters ... great.
I don't think showing you evidence would do any good at all. I showed you the screenshots and you said that they could have been faked.
Even if I had recordings of my conversations with the FBI you would say that I had friends act the part of the FBI and that it wasn't really them. I don't think you're opened-minded at all.
I think that you wouldn't know the truth if it slapped you in the face. If God himself spoke to you in a burning bush and said, "Leslie Powers is telling the truth." you would say, "Prove you are God."
I gave them my social security number and as far as I know they did thorough background checks on me. If they interrogated every tipster do you think anyone would ever try to help them? They had no reason to think that I was anyone other than who I claimed to be.
I actually stated in my blog that I think they were planning on announcing that he was caught in Pakistan. If you will check news reports from late August and September there were all kinds of reports saying they were hot on his trail and they thought they would catch him in Pakistan. Also president Bush kept boldly announcing in his speaches that they were going to catch him. As I said in my blog, I think he may have died in custody and this is why an announcement was never made.
Maybe they were really careful. I think they may have caught him early in the morning when he was asleep.
I think the FBI is just following orders from the White House. I think the White House has just assumed that noone would ever believe my story.

Leslie don't you think if they caught him using your tip that you would be walking around with 25million (Or is it 50mill) by now like that dude over in Afghanistan or wherever that was that got a reward for turning in that other terrorist.

Les - When was your last contact with the Feds? I mean have you asked them 'what's going on?'
and can you tell us more about when you tried to collect your reward please? How come you didn't get it? What happened?
What is the length of time since you last had contact?
'if they interrogated every tipster'. Leslie you do know there is a vast difference between what another tipster is saying and what your saying? You do realize this?
Now, if they indeed caught BIN LADEN, then YOU WOULD BE INTERROGATED end of story. You can't compare it to another tipster, this is involving National Security and everything you do would be monitored.
Oh, come on. You don't believe this do you? There are guards round the clock watching Bin Laden, they would just kill him.

Based on my on experience with government agencies, I think there is a possibility that when you contacted the FBI they may have just decided to pull a cruel joke you by saying they had arrested OBL when in reality they had not. Just a thought
I think the whole idea of a "scrub team" to come and "erase a person" is totally ludacris.
yet You said they asked for all kinds of Information such as your social security number and the like and this was for a picture of a seahorse and a guess that it was OBL? Dunno Leslie.

They didn't know how I found him, just that I did. When my tips started turning out to be good they naturally wanted to know more about me and run a background check, etc. I'm sure they probably just wanted to make sure I didn't have any terrorist ties or something.
