What's in store for it? I'd say they're going to level it, for a number of reasons, some listed and some not.

Who owns it is the first question I'd want asked and answered. Fat chance of us ever finding out the truth here? Guess it's outlived its usefulness.

There are a few pictures with this story I haven't seen before. This site has 22 photos of the compound, both inside and out: Exclusive ABC Photos.

New footage from al Jazeera...

They've had 10 years to plan this. Making sure all corners are neatly tucked in...



It will probably be demolished. The bloodied pictures released of other captives looked alarmingly falsified to me. Too dark and syrupy and lots of reflection. What easier way to get rid of evidence than to burn it? There is no way to re-materialize ash.

Still find it amusing Obama announced OBL's death during Donald Trump's Apprentice, interrupting it.

It's almost like burying him at sea, isn't it? Only it needed to stay around for a while longer than his body did.

On the other hand, I can see their point about it being a morbid curiosity too. What really useful purpose would it serve keeping it around other than that?

Guess we have to assume or take their word that, if they do decide to destroy it, everything will be fully checked and out well documented.

Ha ha. You guys are funny. It's seems kind of creepy to even think of this as a tourist spot or a way to make money. That part of the story was odd to me.

Maybe am getting too cynical in my old age.. But after seeing the disgusting display of people celebrating / glorifying the death of another human being - along with the greed / commercialise everything mentality it wouldnt surprise me in the least if they find a way to profit from death yet again..
Thus my guess on what they will do with it..

The body dumping thing freaks me out. Were all the others buried at sea? Is there footage of them being dropped? I don't think that would be inflammatory, to see "evidence" of them being laid to rest.

It is only a morbid curiosity because death is involved. Wanting tangible proof is legitimate IMO.

They showed us gruesome pictures of Saddam Hussein's sons, then broadcast Saddam being hung, we got to see the unedited Abu Ghraib pictures... I know it isn't the 40s anymore but Mussolini and his wife (plus 15 others) were publicly executed, hung upside down, and dragged through the streets while people spit on them. There's NO questioning that.

I would never ever want that to happen here (or ever again), but it illustrates how things have changed slowly over time. How often to we see real-to-life pictures of war anymore? It's almost all censored unless you seek it out. Watch clips from the Vietnam War in comparison... what they showed on the news gave people emotion! Is that why we don't fight against war so strongly now?...

Something just isn't right. Too many things just "fell into place" in this OBL story. I think the biggest question should be...

Why don't more people want proof?

I was going to post in this thread joking that they'd turn it into a tourist attraction, but I see that it's already one of their possible ideas.

Oh dear.

Some college kid already made over $100,000 US for making OBL DEAD shirts right after it happened. He sold 10,000 that night at $12 a piece.

newyork.cbslocal.com...

Scratch that.


Two days later, he had sold more than a $100,000 in t-shirts at $12 each.

But today, Maurice says he did some soul searching.

“I will now be refunding all orders on Osama dead tees,” he says. “Celebrating over the death of someone, whoever it is, is evil in my eyes.”

“I feel it’s not a positive way to be making money,” he says. “I don’t want my success to come at the expense of anyone else.

He says he wants to make money the right way.

So, he’s launching another site, selling a wider variety of clothing.

More like he had made enough bloodmoney to fund his new venture as doubt he gave refunds after his "soul searching" sounds like cya ..

His Karma can tell his intent. If he was actually being noble, perhaps a little more thought should have been put into it. I hope that he actually did have a change of heart and keeps his word.

I had heard there was mold growing on the walls inside, or was it outside?
Disgusting.

It will be interesting to see what becomes of this "hole in the wall".
