As it is "unraveling" right now? The story has changed constantly, White House has issued retractions. Why? As has been stated hundreds of times by other posters here on ATS: a) get the focus off Obama's birth certificate b)help get Obama re-elected(newest polls released today show Obama at all-time high) c)take the focus off other serious problems facing this country d) continue and escalate the "war on terror" with the end-goal of taking more freedom away from you. "Politicians are.....not stupid" Really? Watch American politics for a week and get back to me on that one.

Common sense would dictate this would be one of the stupidest cover ups of all time. Why would you come out and lie about a) killing someone that is not dead or b) killing someone that has been dead for awhile?
It would be so easy to unravel and prove false if it was so. How may people were in on the Watergate cover up? Yet, it got out.
It makes no sense to make this up as it would destroy an administration, and the benefits (really was this even on the radar screen anymore?) do not out way the downfalls.
Politician's are a lot of things, but they are not stupid.
Reason why I think obama is lying about OBL
destroy an administration
Iran says Bin Laden was already dead(and can prove it)
