Osama Bin Ladin’s Death Is Provoking Skepticism
With nearly every piece of World News comes at least one group of people that will debate the truth of the story.
After the confirmed death of Osama Bin Ladin yesterday morning (2nd May 2011) many sceptics began questioning the evidence of his death.
Although U.S officials have stated that DNA and Facial Recognition Software has lead them to be 99.99% confident that this confirms the death of one of the world’s most wanted men this isn’t for enough to convince some people.
Anti-war activist Cindy Sheehan, whose son was killed in Iraq in 2004, wrote on Facebook: “I am sorry, but if you believe the newest death of OBL, you’re stupid. Just think to yourself – they paraded Saddam’s dead sons around to prove they were dead – why do you suppose they hastily buried this version of OBL at sea? This lying, murderous Empire can only exist with your brainwashed consent – just put your flags away and THINK!”
So is it irrational to believe that perhaps this is a conspiracy and that Osama Bin Ladin was not in fact killed. The U.S government and the C.I.A have victoriously been celebrating their successful mission since the news broke yesterday but could this all be one big cover up?
Although the U.S have promised photographs as evidence of Osama’s death and many unconfirmed “leaked” pictures are floating around on the internet will this be enough to silence the critics?
