Gimmick: Bin Laden's death

When Pentagon admits it has no photo evidence of Bin Laden's death. I wonder what those high ranking government officials were watching in situation room? Was it just another gimmick to fool people?

Pentagon admits it has no photo evidence of Bin Laden's death Special

May 1, 2012 - yesterday in Politics

 
Pentagon officials recently disclosed to the Associated Press (AP) that they could not find any photo or video evidence to confirm that Al Qaeda leader Osama Bin Laden was killed in the Navy Seal raid in Pakistan a year ago.

AP has submitted more than 20 requests for information surrounding the raid on Bin Laden’s Abbottabad compound to the U.S. Government under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA).

It was only a matter of time until the Conspiracy Theory Nuts showed up, claiming Bin Laden wasn't killed. Actually, this is not the first time it has been claimed.

You can neither prove it, nor disprove it.

I did find a link to a real newspaper for this story. I can't figure out why no one else picked it up.

Second, this is an AP story, but it's not on the AP website, and no other paper picked it up? Ridiculous.

I keep telling you conspiricy nuts that you have to get the little details right. When you have a crazy theory, no one's gonna buy it if the details are so obviously made up!

There's a reason a lot of people call it The Star & Sickle, rather than The Star Tribune.

AP has submitted more than 20 requests for information surrounding the raid on Bin Laden’s Abbottabad compound to the U.S. Government under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA).

In response to the request for visual evidence of Bin Laden’s death, the Pentagon stated that it could not find any pictures or video footage of the raid itself or of Bin Laden’s dead body. It also told AP it could not locate any images of Bin Laden’s body that were taken on the U.S.S. Carl Vinson, the Navy aircraft carrier that reportedly lowered him into the sea after his death.

In addition, the Pentagon admitted that it could not find an autopsy report, death certificate or results of a DNA identification test for Bin Laden, in spite of claims made by President Obama and reported by CBC News that a DNA test was performed.

We don't even know who killed JFK. How are we supposed to know the nature of OBL's death?

Actually, we call it the Red StarTribune.
At first, I thought it was a fake posting, but I changed my mind as it does link to their site. As bad as they are, they wouldn't say this came from AP if it didn't. I still think Bin Laden's dead, but only because the SEALS say so. It sure is a screw up if the Pentagon can't provide any documentation.

Anybody who bought that nonsense story about tossing his body into the ocean a few hours after they shot him is lost plain and simple. It was a lie from the beginning. Spec ops mission gone bad in pak territory we shouldn't have been in that oh by the way we lost our stealth chopper in to boot that ended up in the hands of the Chinese. All covered up nicely by the claims of "I got him" by dear leader lapped up by his swooning followers. I bet they still laugh about that one during their little beer summits.
