Who Faked Osama bin Laden’s Death Photo?

by | 2nd, May 2011

THAT image of a dead Osama bin Laden – the one that’s featured on the front of such organs as the Mail, Times, Telegraph, Mirror and Sun and Mirror, that was broadcast by Sky News in the morning,  is one based on an image taken from on 29 April 2009 merged with another shot of the Al Qaeda leader.

Yeah, it’s a fake.

According to The Los Angeles Times:

During the operation, a photo of his face was transmitted to analysts, who confirmed the identification.

According to Pentagon officials, photos of Bin Laden’s dead face do exist but those widely distributed on the Internet are fake. At some point, if only to convince die-hard Bin Laden followers, officials are expected to release a corpse photo, as has been done in the past when famous villains such as Che Guevara and Iraqi President Saddam Hussein were killed or captured. Additionally, such special ops are typically videotaped by mini-helmet cams to document a sensitive mission and assist in debriefing and future training.

Anyone looking for a conspiracy, won’t have to look far...
