    Gimmick: Bin Laden's death

    When Pentagon admits it has no photo evidence of Bin Laden's death. I wonder what those high ranking government officials were watching in situation room? Was it just another gimmick to fool people?

    Pentagon admits it has no photo evidence of Bin Laden's death Special

    Pentagon officials recently disclosed to the Associated Press (AP) that they could not find any photo or video evidence to confirm that Al Qaeda leader Osama Bin Laden was killed in the Navy Seal raid in Pakistan a year ago.

    AP has submitted more than 20 requests for information surrounding the raid on Bin Laden’s Abbottabad compound to the U.S. Government under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA).

    In response to the request for visual evidence of Bin Laden’s death, the Pentagon stated that it could not find any pictures or video footage of the raid itself or of Bin Laden’s dead body. It also told AP it could not locate any images of Bin Laden’s body that were taken on the U.S.S. Carl Vinson, the Navy aircraft carrier that reportedly lowered him into the sea after his death.

    In addition, the Pentagon admitted that it could not find an autopsy report, death certificate or results of a DNA identification test for Bin Laden, in spite of claims made by President Obama and reported by CBC News that a DNA test was performed.

    DNA doesn't mean anything?

    If it's really true that they don't have any sort of documentation, that is more than disturbing...I mean even pics of lowering him into the sea could have easily been faked just so that they could show "proof". I guess I never really considered too seriously that it wasn't true, because how would they pull something like that off. However, true or not, I do think that there is something to be said for the Obama admin fueling conspiracy theories on the basis that it makes people uncomfortable to buy into them, and so they tend to reject them. Clever either way.

    maybe the requests are going to the wrong people, as well as I would think that it would be considered classified.

    I always thought feeding him to the fishes was strange. Wouldn't an alive Bin Laden been more of a coup? But with the new book, it sounds like the easy way was taken, just kill him, but dumping him in the ocean?

    The Pentagon doesn't have the photos, because the CIA ran the raid, not the Pentagon.

    The CIA has the photos, and they're not sharing them.

    A Navy SEAL who was there was just on 60 Minutes

    He said he personally took pictures and that blood and saliva samples were taken
