His name is not natively written with english letters and translation from arabic to english gets fuzzy when it comes to the vowels used.

Both are correct.

Really?? Because that is really important in the grand scheme of things.

Can I just ask, is the translation of his arabic name a bit of a gray area or a bit of a grey area?


(sorry, time of the month)

I think they say Usama so there is no confusion with Obama. I've noticed that too. Once Obama became President, all of these "Usama'" spellings came to the light, so I'm 100% positive it has something to do with Obama.

Really. It could be two different people. Just trying to clarify. By the way, in the grand scheme of things, there are way more important things.

Yeah mostly in english speaking countries they call him Osama but everywhere else I think its Usama. Same with Gadaffi everywhere else they call him Kadaffi.

We have all been duped. It's not the first letter of his name we are getting wrong, it's the second.

Osama?

NOPE

Obama

The so called left media call him Osama and the far right Fox News calls him Usama.

There are 3 different spelling for the Koran/Coran/Quran. There are 2 spellings for Kadaffi/Gaddafif. I like to spell it Ka Daffy Duck.
