There is a picture of him. He looks terrible. Considering the fatal gun shot wound to the head and all. Turn on CNN. Probably on at the Pub nearest you.
You mean the confirmed fake one here? http://www.tmz.com/2011/05/02/osama-...ke-fraud-hoax/

In my opinion this is all dodgy as feck. So Osama has now been killed, found living in a secure compound "just down the road" from a Pakistani military base? Call me cynical but yeah right... more like captured ages ago, used for intel on Al Qeada for the last months, and then finally executed when enough of the Taliban have been wiped out, just in time for support of Obamas second term of presidency.

Ahhh oh yes of course, and the body has already, conveniently, been disposed of at sea where of course no-one knows the location, and could never confirm or deny any of the DNA reports they will produce. Would you immediately dispose of the worlds most wanted terrorists body anonymously at sea? Of course you would. Naturally, a photo does exist somewhere... but the face is of course unrecognizeable. Ahem.

Sure but they started it. And we were invited to build a military base in Saudi Arabia. Invited.
How about you stop interrupting my trolling with hard facts eh?

Has it been confirmed that it was shot down?

Pure speculation, but if a US military helicopter went down through natural causes (flat battery, oil leak, puncture, whatever breaks a helicopter) in a semi-unfreindly country would they just leave it there or would they destroy it themselves?
No there is no confirmation of anything, and lets say I agree with what you say.

Was there "heavy fire" by Osama's henchmen and bodyguards?

If no, then fine.
Is yes, then what happend to them?

P.S. Regaridn the pics of dead Osama, atleast they could have dyed his beard and hair grey to make him look his age.

Indeed. Osama and the Taliban have nothing at all in common apart from the fact that the Taliban presided over lawlessness and that suited Osama at the time (easy to hide). And by the way, they're all Muslim. The Taliban are Muslim, Osama was Muslim. They're not nice Muslims, but it's a bit weird to say they've been brainwashed or aren't thinking clearly because they don't think like us. I don't get it. They read the Koran, and read about the unbelievers and the infallibility of Allah and drew logical conclusions. Others drew equally logical different conclusions. It's all too simple to say they're "evil" or "bad". They believe differently than we do, and that's OK, and their beliefs interfere with our way of life and that's not OK so we have to stop them. This can involve imprisoning them or killing them. It's wholly unnecessary to look beyond that, to say they're definitely not Muslims, in case other Muslims who've interpreted the Koran differently get offended, or to say they're evil in order to give us comfort that we could never be like them, or to say that they've been brainwashed to give us comfort that there's an absolute right, an absolute wrong, and that they're absolutely on the wrong side.
Oddly the most people who have died due to the terrorist activities of these groups are Muslims; usually people who nipped out for a bit of shopping or similar innocent activities only to find themselves too close to a detonating "holy warrior".

Re: US gov. claiming Osama bin Laden killed.

I haven't heard all of his speeches, however, I certainly have never heard of the use of the word Divine. And that's a bit stretching why a democratic nation would go to war for anything.

It's not really odd. If you see things in such absolute terms then collateral damage is irrelevant, and the deaths of people you don't regard as being real Muslims because they own a TV set or don't own their daughters are also irrelevant.

Guys, the Head MF-er in charge of a terror organization is dead! It is a GOOD thing not a BAD thing. Who cares how he died, what his skull looks like, where his remains are etc etc. World has one less bad guy around. World is better without him. Period!

Ahem.
At what point in his presidency will it be politically non leaning in his favor for re election for you for him to try to capture we have been looking for, for the past 13 or so year plus? 2 years from his run to re- election not enough?
Yeah that's the pic I saw, ad I saw it on CNN. I don't know it's a fake, there are other details, that weren't shown on the TMZ, but it could be a fake.
It wouldn't be the first time a criminal took advantage of people's ideas where to look for a fugitive, and go exactly where they wouldn't look. Do you think every Swiss military base knows the exact details of everyone living within a 25 km radius of their bases? They aren't police, and even they aren't perfect.
I don't see the dodgy part. A wanted fugitive is killed in a fire fight where he resisted. Where is the basis that there is soooo much more to this?

Hot chicks are only so distracting. There are so many of them. In the end childish gibberish about details that don't really matter will prevail, and of course people in the street chanting" USA USA USA" like we just won the world cup.
Which incidentally, wait a sec, um, no...

Right, because Apaches are not used to drop special forces teams. I assume the poster is not familiar with American helicopters.
Picture of downed (due to technical failure) copter from BBC.

I am not familiar with American helicopters but yes it does seem like Blackhawk or something like that, but not a gunship.
