New bin Laden Death Photo "Released"

Tyler Durden's picture




 

... Supposedly this is a real one. Considering the administration's photoshop skills are rather rudimentary we hope readers will determine if this is a fake within minutes.

The newest version of the story has Osama shot twice in the head.

Unless the SEAL team is using .22, I don't see the exit wounds on the right.

i can already hear them as they arranged the picture...

"Wait wait, be sure and get the US flag patch in there... yeah, thats it.."

Like OBL will look EXACTLY as he has for the past 10 years in every video... as in no attempt to change his appearance at all?

Same fuckin beard and everything?

I call BULLSHIT

This picture is obviously at least 7 years old.

No fucking way this is real.  First of all, they would never show one of the Navy Seals' faces in a photo as he would become a potential target.

Second, they would never divulge the tactics used to assassinate him, i.e. following his courier.

This is all part of a campaign to get Obama re-elected.

Why was the birth certificate released now after spending millions to avoid showing it?  Because the issue was gaining traction and it needed to be squashed.  Unless the reports of more than a million dollars being spent are false, I don't need to look at the document to tell it is a fake.

There'll be no formidable Republican candidate running for office either because the PTB won't allow it.

Obama in 2012 unless their plan encounters a big bad black swan.

If this wasn't officially released by the government, then it's ridiculous that we are even discussing it.  If it is an official photo, then you are correct, it could have been taken later but the night vision issue still remains.  Just seems that Obama is trying way too hard to get re-elected.

They just announced they are going to release it, per Drudge.

 

"WHITE HOUSE TO RELEASE BIN LADEN DEATH PHOTO
Tue May 03 2011 10:22:50 ET

President Obama decided Tuesday morning to release at least one photo showing Osama Bin Laden's death, a top source claims.

The images, being described as 'graphic', are bound to stir emotions in the east and the west, and will likely become the most viewed photographs in modern history.

One image shows a bullet wound to his head above his left eye.

Will it remove all doubt about the death?

The exact timing on the release is being debated.

Developing... "

Fact is, no one will ever believe any of the information released. Most wouldn't believe it if they had brought him home and stuffed him for viewing on the WH lawn.

Joke is on him, all the virgins are Catholic nuns.

ahhh yes... virgins...unfortunately the Quran never mentioned that they would all be fattie dudes.

It was misprint.  Should read "one 72 year old virgin."

Why release a photo that also shows the face of a member of US Special Forces?

Exactly. They would never show the face of a SEAL team member.

Valerie Plame would like a word with you about disclosure and leaks.

BTW, know what her job was? She was working on nuclear weapons proliferation from the former USSR.

Good thing the WH blew her cover, huh? Can't have her out there stopping the evil-doers before they get a chance to scare/kill us.

Wow, did I hit a nerve, Mr. Junker?

Maybe that subject is just a little too polarized for sensitive minds.

i was swimming in the ocean with one of my sis friend's son, who was training to be a seal. i could swim and float better and faster then him, and i am deformed.

deformed or womanly formed?...which some consider as being deformed because you have built in a pair of air bags. But they probably help you to float better...and if they deflate when you swim and generate jet propulsion, no wonder you can beat him with such feminine intuition that men cannot match.

You'll notice this is not a release, but a leak. I'll let you figure out the rest.

Because otherwise you could correlate it with the Navy Seal field trip to the wax museum.

This definitely looks photoshopped. I can tell from some of the pixels and from having seen a lot of shops in my time.

Right.  Photo-shopped pictures are not admissible as evidence during water-boarding at Gitmo and Baghram.

They said the same thing about Tupac and Elvis, and look how wrong they were.  You sir are also wrong.

Why is the bottom left corner digitalized out?  Are they obsuring the date and time on this photo?  For what reason would they do that?

They also post the original photo used to create this one. Different victim, same photo otherwise.

Good Lord, just release the fucking helmet cam video already.  Even if it's only 20-30 seconds that's going to be a lot more believeable than a still photo.

Nothing released will please this crowd ... not even that!  I think you just want to see people being shot ... I always wonder what this generation of Call of Duty  kids would grow up to be...and I am starting to to see.
