It sounds quite believable to me. Just the right amount of confusion and dodgy decision-making one would expect under difficult circumstances when everything is moving very quickly.

A perfectly-crafted, easy-to-swallow story would be suspicious. This isn’t.

Many years ago, a close friend of mine was kidnapped and murdered by a government hit-squad in my country. That government is no longer in power, the facts about my friend’s death are now well established and nobody is contesting them, but at the time, it was different. In between the time he was taken from his home and the time his bullet-riddled body washed up ashore after having been dumped in the sea from an aircraft, we heard a variety of conflicting stories about his whereabouts, his state of health, who the kidnappers were, etc. All these stories were given us on good authority, by important and influential people. Every few hours we’d receive a phone call from someone close to the government, or a contact in the military, or some of my friend’s numerous politically-connected associates, telling us first one thing and then another. This wasn’t an attempt to cover anything up or sow confusion; these were friends of ours, doing their best to help. But events behind the scenes were moving so quickly that no-one really knew for certain what was happening. And the few who did know the truth weren’t about to tell anybody.

Have people here considered that whatever information reaches the public about a covert operation like this, undertaken on foreign soil and apparently without the knowledge of the government of the country, will have been filtered through several layers of security-related scrutiny to ensure that no valuable strategic or tactical information is accidentally revealed? Have they further considered that someone had to make some very quick decisions about what to do at the scene, and what to do with bin Laden’s body and the other casualties afterwards? The operation obviously did not go like clockwork, not if a helicopter was lost in the course of it. The fog of battle, hard decisions made fast, followed by heavy editing of whatever information is released later – surely you don’t, in the midst of all that, expect a perfectly consistent account to emerge, all at once?

Well that's kinda what I was thinking (said) that this is sooo outrageous and unbelievable, that it may just be true.
It's said that the truth is stranger than fiction.


But the whole thing stinks either way.... It just feels odd, wrong... weird.


Time will tell maybe, or perhaps we'll never know and we each have to make our own minds up.

True that. About everything, not just this story.

By the way, what sex is the angel in your avatar? I seem to see cleavage, but maybe I'm just seeing bondage...

No, I do not believe Bin Laden is dead untill I see proof. By claiming he was buried at sea, the powers that be know his death cannot be proved or disproved.

Probably. This is the sort of thing that would bite them right in the rear end if they lied about it. Maybe he didn't die on that exact date...but I'm guessing that it couldn't have happened before the royal wedding if they did.

Honestly, this is the one thing that they wouldn't bother lying about now. Hell, they would have made it the October surprise if they really wanted to kill him off at a convenient time.

...granted, I'm on a conspiracy site, my thoughts are in the minority and will be either ignored or addressed without proper argument.

Haha. Who knows. I would say they probably didn't. No. Say the army did legitimately take him out, just as well, because they wouldn't be able to convict him in a court of law anyway.

NO! see "When did Osama Bin Laden die?" BTW that thread is closed, for i think he did die in the Tiber pass shortly after the story broke that his kidney was failing and was on dialysis here is the story www.time.com... from the link

Which is closer to dying: Osama bin Laden or the CIA's effort to catch him? Nothing has characterized the fruitlessness of the hunt for the al-Qaeda leader so much as the recurrent — and mostly inaccurate — reports that he is seriously ailing, or even at death's door. In 2002, Pakistani President Pervez Musharraf said bin Laden had kidney disease, and that he had required a dialysis machine when he lived in Afghanistan. That same year, the FBI's top counterterrorism official, Dale Watson, said, "I personally think he is probably not with us anymore." Since then, of course, bin Laden has appeared on multiple videos looking healthier than ever.

Now the CIA has produced a report saying that bin Laden has long-term kidney disease and may have only months to live, two U.S. officials familiar with the report told TIME. The agency ostensibly managed to get the names of some of the medications bin Laden is taking. One U.S. official familiar with the report, which came out between six and nine months ago, says it concluded, "Based on his current pharmaceutical intake, [we] would expect that he has no more than six to 18 months to live and impending kidney failure." (See pictures of Osama Bin Laden.)

so if this is not true then the CIA is a complete failure or if it is true and did die then the SEALS killed a look a like and it is just one big false flag.
