Osama bin Laden -- BOGUS Death Photo

5/2/2011 6:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

A photo reportedly showing a dead Osama bin Laden is already making its way around the Internet ... but it seems pretty obvious ... the photo is a FAKE.

Osama Bin Laden Dead Body Picture

The image on the left is an ALTERED version of a famous photo of bin Laden.

The White House has NOT released an official death photo of the corpse ... yet.

An official has told CNN ... REAL photographs of Osama's body exist ... which show a gunshot wound to the side of his head. The official says due to the wounds, bin Laden's face is "unrecognizable."

I do not belice that Bin laden is dead, not that I don't want that, but I think there is a lie on all of this, the same thing they have done with Miloshevic in HAGUE, the said that he had a heart attack, and died in preason, but no body has sow the body of him...ever.....and tha same is now with Bin laden...they sadi he is dead, and no body sow his body.....
WE WANT TO SEE ...THE PHOTOS...WE HAVE THAT RIGHT...is the government is sure that they have killed him...let's show us the photo.....

I see one person here that I read thanked George Bush.... What did W. do? His failed attempts to find weapons of mass distruction in Iraq... Congrats Bush... Obama did not do much with this either except give the order to conduct this mission.. It was the hard work of the SEAL team that brought Osama to justice. Some of you are idiots..

So has anyone actually seen any proof ??? The body was dumped in the ocean where we will never ever see it..and all we have to go by is the word from US government who never did find the weapons of mass destruction in Iraq. I do find it disturbing that, Osama bin Laden was not captured for trial - US says they were trying for it, but I believe for political reasons they needed him dead. Alternatively, can you imagine what the trial in the US would be like? Osama's family members who were also killed - who were they and are they deserving of death by virture of their association? US forces crossed into Pakistan without permission. The death seems to be a reason for a street party, rather than a sober assessment of how to resolve issues that much of the world has with the US. Some would have had his body dragged through the streets of Washington, given the chance.
The only information/spin coming out of this is not independent. Whether he was hiding behind women or not, wouldn't they claim it just so as to go after the image. I take these "reports" with a grain of salt. Looking on Obama face, he had no idea what was happing or what was going on, it was the similar look that George Bush had when he was informed about the 911 attack. Senior U.S. officials said Osama bin Laden's body was transferred to the aircraft carrier USS Carl Vinson where traditional Islamic procedures for handling the remains were followed, including washing the corpse, placing it in a white sheet and committing the body to the waters of the North Arabian Sea. White House officials later revealed DNA testing had confirmed his identity. The U.S.S Vinson is outfitted with a sophisticated DNA lab? It was able to identify Osama bin Laden's DNA? , They couldn't even "find" Osama bin Laden for 10 years but they have his DNA? and it was verified and they dumped the body in the ocean???? Intelligence officials discovered the compound in August while monitoring an al-Qaeda courier..." "...shortly after the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks ..CIA detainees told interrogators the courier was so trusted by bin Laden that he might be living with the al-Qaeda leader." "Intelligence officials believed the million-dollar compound was built five years ago to protect a major terrorist figure. The question was, who? The CIA asked itself again and again who might be living behind those walls." What a nice try to legitimize extraordinary renditions. Does this action mean that the U.S. has now legitimized targeted assassinations, as well? Was there no option to use tear gas or another top secret military medium in order to make an arrest and lay proper charges?. This story just does not look credible to me. Why take the body in the first place just to ditch it in the ocean shortly there after? Wouldn't top officials in the US want to see Osama bin Laden dead in the flesh? Pretty sure they would. Darkness cannot drive out darkness: only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate: only love can do that

first bin laden didn't had nothing to do with the world trade center building second he's not dead because they would need him to "talk" so i pretty easy to think for how much they would need him a life...

lol, and here come the butthurt... "Obama did what Bush couldn't".
Did Obama even touch a rifle? This was completely on the military intelligence/command. Kudos to America's military. Obama just did what any other american would. On receiving news of his location, he ordered a strike. Not talking down about him, but get real people... This was purely a military action. Neither Bush, nor Obama, nor any other politician did this, so no politician should get any credit for it.
