In a statement published by the New York Times, Omar bin Laden writes:
“I Omar Ossama Binladin and my brothers the lawful children and heirs of the Ossama Binladin (OBL) have noted wide coverage of the news of the death of our father, but we are not convinced on the available evidence in the absence of dead body, photographs, and video evidence that our natural father is dead. Therefore, with this press statement, we seek such conclusive evidence to believe the stories published in relation to 2 May 2011 operation Geronimo as declared by the President of United States Barrack Hussein Obama in his speech that he authorized the said operation and killing of OBL and later confirmed his death.”
The family also wants the UN to investigate the legality of the operation that killed an unarmed Osama bin Laden, which they claim “blatantly violated” international law.
He does have a point. There isn’t even one proof so far.

Well, seems like the Times of London (with confirmation from the Pentagon) had a very wide imagination 10 years ago. Making this graphic of an..umm..what is this thing? can we call it a super fortress for now? Okay this would work. I have no idea how they imagined that Bin Laden would be able to dig such a massive cave of 7 floors inside a mountain, with cables running inside the mountain for power, a ventilation system, secret exits, traps, missile launcher caches, and then live there with another 1000 men.. *Double facepalm*
The U.S government released five videos found in Osama bin Laden’s compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan, showing the al Qaeda leader preparing a message to the United States and watching himself on television.
The videos were released without sound so not to “spread the word of a terrorist”.

This picture has been roaming the interwebs since yesterday. I guess it’s probably another work of Photoshop.
That’s what Google says. Searches for the term “Osama Bin Laden” have increased 1,000,000% on Sunday May 1. Within the first hour
Obama announced the big news.
I have been getting increased views on the Bin Laden posts here on my blog. I can’t imagine what the number of searches in Google would be!
Google included the above picture in a tweet.
WARNING: This gallery contains graphic and violent images including dead bodies.
The photos were taken by a Pakistani security official who entered the compound after the early morning raid on Monday. The official, who wished to remain anonymous, sold the pictures. Reuters is confident in their authenticity.
This is a picture that has been spreading around yesterday. It’s supposed to be of Osama Bin Laden right before his body was lowered into the sea. I think the two pictures explain themselves.
Got the picture from Q8Ping
