With conspiracy theories swirling, President Obama has decided to release at least one photo of a dead Osama bin Laden, according to The Drudge Report.
No word on when the White House plans to release the first image. However, a senior U.S. official tells CNN that there were three sets of pictures taken:
- Photos of the raid where Osama bin Laden was killed.
- Photos of bin Laden's body taken after the raid.
- Photos of the late terrorist's burial at sea.
Why not show proof you can that Osama bin Laden is really dead? Because the photo that most clearly shows his face is also the most graphic taken of him.
Due to the massive head wound across his face, officials do not believe it is suitable to run in the media, however it's the image that's undeniably bin Laden.
No word when and if that particular image will be released, but the "Osama bin Laden death photo" circulating online today is NOT real. It's a hoax, people.
One you can see after the jump if you really want. It's grotesque, probably NSFW and NER (not even real), so you honestly don't have to bother, but ...
As you can see, someone who really needs to get out more took a photo of some other mangled corpse and superimposed bin Laden's face onto it. Sick.
What do you think? Should the government release the real pics?
