Bin Laden would be the biggest political victory in years for the President that got him. Not a chance in hell they really killed him. If they had really killed him they'd have his dead mug posted in every newspaper, magazine and website that would post/print it (which would be most of them). Nobody had a problem posting pix of a hanging Saddam Hussein or his disfigured son, so why would a cleaned up Bin Laden corpse be bad (they said they cleaned him up before conveniently burying him at sea)? They could quell the conspiracy claims tomorrow if they produced the pictures. The fact that they won't only fuels the fire.

Instead, they produce a ridiculous forgery years later that only increased the speculation. They really do think we're all that stupid!!

Nah - cant' possibly see anything like that happening.
Therefore of course it must be a conspiracy.
