DNA testing takes only a few hours without a backlog(even the page you linked says they can have it same-day), and the SEALs had people documenting the operation. Obtaining the DNA would be as simple as snipping a lock of hair or getting some blood.

killed and buried in 24 hours?
someone care to explain to me how the dna was obtained and tested that quick?
Who actually did this dna test and who took the pictures?
Several, until an official account is released in full.

So the story of OBL's death has changed I hear; makes me wonder how many times it is going to change.

The White House backed away Monday evening from key details in its narrative about the raid that killed Osama bin Laden, including claims by senior U.S. officials that the Al Qaeda leader had a weapon and may have fired it during a gun battle with U.S. forces.

People who disagree with you could only be brainwashed instead of having a different opinion, we've heard it all before.

Not gonna reply to one single ats post but it sure seems to me that alot of folks here are really brainwashed by the OS.
You're basing a federal case, metaphorically, off of four words with no context.
SOMEONE said..."Who cares if he.....".....The msm had you right there. They are so good at what they do that they have you touting THEIR agenda and you don't even know it. You have possibly stopped thinking for yourself and you think that whatever you hear on the news, internet, radio, etc...is somehow the gospel truth.
Doesn't make it un-SO, either.
Please take a moment and ask yourself these questions..........
Who was there at this raid?
Who actually SAW what happened?
Who reported it?
If there is any doubt to ANY of those questions......well, you might not be hearing the truth.
"Just cause ya heard it on CNN don't make it SO.".......
So it's best to assume everything they say is a lie. Got it.
There was an Olympic bomber in Atlanta one time and they had him pegged as the mastermind of this "atrocious" crime........Come to find out, it wasn't him...Hmmmm..ruined his life and all sorts of stuff cause the media can say anything they want and then they only have to substantiate the facts if they are called on it.
They could say anything they want about this OBL thing and there is NO ONE to actually have the facts to substantiate the truth....
Assuming the military's DNA tests are wrong in this case, and only this case, without evidence, isn't so much "skepticism" as blind doubt.

If they want the American people to take them at their word, they need to start behaving with integrity, and transparency. The people are not skeptical because they are nuts, skepticism when dealing with people who have been lying and concealing from you is sane, and rational.

Bottom line, they have lied to us before. It is completely rational to be skeptical of the word of known liars.
