In a unique twist on the Osama bin Laden saga, Iran's intelligence minister says Tehran has "genuine intelligence showing that the terrorist leader died of disease long before the alleged raid" by the United States, the Iranian semiofficial FARS news agency reports.
"We have accurate information that bin Laden died of illness some time ago," Heidar Moslehi said on the sidelines of a Cabinet meeting Sunday, FARS reports. "If the U.S. military and intelligence apparatus have really arrested or killed bin Laden, why don't they show him (his dead body)? Why have they thrown his corpse into the sea?" Moslehi asked, according to a TV report, FARS says.
By releasing such "false news," he says, the White House is trying to overshadow "regional awakening." Moslehi is quoted as saying U.S. officials resort to such PR campaigns to divert attention from domestic problems as well as their "fragile" economic situation, FARS reports.

So Iran can proove it huh. I would not believe anything they have to say. Remember that this is the country that claimed to have built a ufo, and took a picture of it. To bad the picture looks like it is out of an 80's late night b movie. For those unfamiliar with the iran ufo here is a link to the story.
