You are absolutely right!!!! No amount of evidence will ever satisfy the mindless drones that just jump from conspiracy to conspiracy, picking apart every second of every minute, to prove their theory.
If he was brought back alive and put on trial, you would have masses of drones complaining about the amount of money being spent, and the platform for him to speak on...These same drones are now complaining that he isn't going to be on display.
Someone releases an old picture, passing it off as real, now the Govt. is being blamed for this picture.... The Govt. didn't release this picture.. Nor did they claim it was legit.. Regardless, here come the drones, calling this a Govt. conspiracy.. Its rather pathetic actually!
Its a lose lose situation!...

I think conspiracy theorists spouting the knee-jerk reaction " its all fake " are going to look increasingly silly over the next few days.
It has only been a few hours and I am not aware of any official evidence being released yet but already circumstantial evidence is appearing. Apparently a tweeter in Abbottabad reported the raid as it occurred :-
And Al Jazeera are already reporting that al-Qaeda and the Taliban are threatening reprisals. Why would they do that if OBL died years ago ?

Dear Mr. President,
Now That Bin Laden is dead I expect a full withdrawal of our troops from Afghanistan and Strategically place them along OUR borders to protect OUR soil. Furthermore, I expect an immediate revoking of the Patriot Act. Anything less is unacceptable.
The killing of Osama bin Laden will deal a big psychological blow to al-Qaida but may have little practical impact on an increasingly decentralized group that has operated tactically without him for years.

good riddance. Congratulation to the unit (CIA, Marines, Army) or whoever took this man out. The only thing that I cannot believe is that Pakistan did not know where Bin Laden was all this time. He was living in a town home to 3 Pakistani regiments needless. Its quite obvious that such a military installation in a place close to Indo-pak border comes with a vast intelligence set up and you trying to tell me that Pakistan did not know is pure bull #. They knew all along where he was and were hiding them. I have come to this board after a long time and let me tell you one thing I grew up in India and I can tell u this much u can never trust what Govt of Pakistan, its army & its intelligence says. they are liars they knew all along where this scumbag was and we lost countless American lives in Afghanistan searching for him. the last thing I want to say is I heard on the radio he was sot in the head. they should have sot him down there too so he cannot have his 72 virgins

Stop judging people. Drones? You're CONDONING the killing of a man that was only ALLEGED to be responsible for 9/11?
I thank Allah that the Park51/Ground Zero Mosque will have a permanent memorial to Bin Laden, with a crescent moon for every floor demolished in the World Trade Ctr

Ok, thanks, so then they could not have yet tested the DNA, only collected it. But we don't need to know the results, all its going to be is a confirmation (I highly doubt theyre going to say they got the wrong man).
