The Death of Osama bin Laden
A Deception Too Far


People who live close to "bin Laden's compound" doubt the White House story:

Common sense says that if the real Bin Laden was gunned down on May 1, 2011 there would be no need for faked evidence,  indeed fakes would be avoided precisely because the revelation of a single hoax casts doubt on the credibility of the entire story, especially since "conspiracy theorists" say he has been dead since 2001. Therefore, if there is just one fake, the logical conclusion is the entire story is fake.

Let's take a close look.

Pakistani television stations on Monday broadcast what they described as unconfirmed images of Osama bin Laden's bloodied face after the United States said he had been killed. "The picture of Osama bin Laden's dead body has been released. It is unverified," said the commentator on Pakistan's largest TV network, Geo. [Times of India]

Here is a photo of the real Osama from about 15 years ago.

If it is flipped to the right...

...and mixed with a photo which has been on the internet for two years...

...we have a "dead bin Laden".

Here is a demo showing how the fake was created:

US Senator Scott Brown said in several televised interviews today that he had seen perhaps the most controversial and closely guarded photos in the world: those showing Osama bin Laden’s dead body.

Brown, a member of the Senate Armed Services Committee, suggested he had viewed them as part of an official briefing, and he argued that they were too graphic to be released to the public and could enflame terrorists.


Brown later acknowledged that he had fallen victim to a hoax, apparently the same doctored images that were making the rounds on the Internet. [Boston Globe]

Obama watched Bin Laden die on live video as shoot-out beamed to White House

Here's the photo supposedly showing reactions to the shoot-out...

...there's just one problem, the director of the CIA has said there was no live video footage of the raid on bin Laden's compound:

“Did you have access to video of what was actually happening in the compound, et cetera?” asked Lehrer. “We had live-time intelligence information that we were dealing with,” Panetta replied cagily.

“Did you actually see Usama bin Laden get shot?” Lehrer followed up. “No,” Panetta answered. “No, not at all. We - you know, we had some observation of the approach there, but we did not have direct flow of information as to the actual conduct of the operation itself as they were going through the compound.”

Here was the first time any senior Obama aide admitted to being in the dark for some parts of the raid – to enjoying access to something less than what Brennan had described, with deliberate broadness, as “real-time visibility into the progress of the operation.”

Since Panetta had tracked events from a special command post at CIA headquarters in Langley, Lehrer pressed the issue still further. “So…did the president see the shots fired at Usama bin Laden?” the veteran newsman asked. “No,” Panetta answered again. “No, not at all….[W]e knew that the helicopters had - were on the ground, that the teams were going into the compound. And that was the kind of information that we were following. Once those teams went into the compound, I can tell you that there was a time period of almost twenty or twenty-five minutes where we - you know, we really didn't know just exactly what was going on.” [Fox News]

Translation: the White House photo was nothing but propaganda.

Another photo was leaked onto the net following the collapse of the first fake. The White House strategy appears to have been to "test" the fakes with leaks, then go with the first image that appeared to fool everyone. This one did not.

The source image for this fake is a frame from the movie "Blackhawk Down"...

...which was flipped left to right...

...and merged with a fake bin Laden.

This is a simple morph, again exposed when the original source image was located by a WRH reader.

This comes courtesy of bin Laden's "home videos". Have a good look at the ear of the man in the video...

...and compare it to the ear of the real bin Laden.

Ears are as unique as fingerprints, and they do not change with time. The ears do not match. The man in the video is not bin Laden.

The photo on left is captured from the video released by the government. The photo on right is from a verified ABC interview with the real bin Laden before 9/11.

Ears are as unique as fingerprints, and they do not change with time. The ears do not match. The man in the video is not bin Laden.

A photo used to support the claim that a 24 (or 29 - the story kept changing) year old woman was Bin Laden's wife, the Daily Mail published the following photo.

Take a close look at the fingers in the Daily Mail photo of the passport. This is another photoshop creation and a very clumsy one at that. The face seems to be an overlay as well and not part of the actual image of the passport.

Common sense will tell you that if you have real evidence of a real event, you do not need, nor would you risk, using a fake piece of evidence, because of the fake is exposed, doubt is cast on the real evidence. So, if the US Government is showing phony bin Laden photos to the world it means all the evidence must be fake.
