Tere Bin Laden

I have to admit a certain amount of skepticism about the news that Osama Bin Laden was shot dead in Pakistan.

I’ve seen the film Tere Bin Laden where the US attempts to kill the bogus Bin Laden, but fails.

According to U.S. officials, a team of 20–25 US Navy SEALs under the command of the Joint Special Operations Command and working with the CIA stormed bin Laden’s compound in two helicopters. Bin Laden and those with him were killed during a firefight, in which U.S. forces did not experience any injuries or casualties. In his broadcast announcement President Obama said that U.S. forces “took care to avoid civilian casualties.” Three men and a woman were killed along with Bin Laden, the woman being killed when she was “used as a shield by a male combatant”. According to one U.S. official the attack was carried out without the knowledge or consent of Pakistani authorities.

That just sounds too much like it was taken from Tere Bin Laden for my taste. Also, there’s this from LUV News:

Bin Laden’s family reported that he died in 2003 (and there were many other reports of his death, none we could verify), after two videos showed him denying responsibility for the 9/11 attacks. Since then, al Jazeera has reported a video of bin Laden accepting responsibility for the attacks, but they have not responded to repeated LUV News requests as to whether the video has been authenticated, since other such videos of bin Laden accepting responsibility for the 9/11 attacks have been discredited.

Anyway, I have to admit that this is yet another non-issue for me.
