Underwater search for Bin Laden's body launched

Treasure hunter Bill Waren is reportedly launching an underwater search to find the corpse of Osama bin Laden as he believes that President Obama has failed to provide concrete proof of the terrorist’s death.

I like the business spirit behind the expedition:
"There is still a $25 million reward that no one has collected, and the reward says dead or alive, well, if -- in fact -- he is dead, then I could collect the $25 million reward. Why not?"

I told you!

People will look for the body! But the water was obviously not enough, they should have burn it!

Re: Underwater search for Bin Laden's body launched

Apparently the guy has some time for the search, so why not? It's worth trying for 25M USD

If you remember last year's Air France flight Rio-Paris crash, they managed after 1 year to get some bodies up. I also assume that Bin Laden's body was probably wrapped in some sealed bag which will prevent scavengers attacking it.

PS: maybe with all the blood it has attracted enough sharks....maybe even the mossad controled shark roaming near Sharm el sheikh

Mind you, if he does find it and it's proven beyond a shadow of a doubt, then the money he'll make from the inevitable ensuing magazine exclusives, television appearances, book etc, etc will make that reward look like peanuts in comparison.

If he finds it, I have a feeling he will be in an unfortunate maritime "accident" before he can report it.

Don't see why, it'll just help to prove the government's assertion that he is indeed Dodo-like.

To the real doubters out there more credit will be lent by the mysterious death of the hero diver .

I get the feeling that to the real doubters out there, finding the body wouldn't make the slightest bit of difference.

Re: Underwater search for Bin Laden's body launched

Maybe his time could be better spent publicising the fate of the Pakistani informers who helped the CIA and have now been locked up by an extremely embarrassed ISI. They'll probably be dead before the week's out.

Great bunch the ISI. They quite like killing journalists too.
