Experts: Bin Laden Corpse Photo Is Fake

WASHINGTON (WBBM) — There is a picture going around the internet that is supposed to be Osama bin Laden, taken after he was killed.

But as WBBM Newsradio 780’s Mike Krauser reports, the picture is not what it appears to be. It is clearly a fake.

The photo is part bin Laden, and part a corpse that’s been on the internet for some time.

Some newspapers were fooled by the photo.

Reporter Sager Meghani, at the pentagon, says you can bet there are real photos.

“They would take pictures, again, just to have that kind of proof, and that’s where a good chunk of my morning has been spent, in trying to get our hands on that,” Meghani said. “We’re hoping that the Navy may have some video of the actual raid itself.”

And it’s probably only a matter of time before it goes public.

    Yes it’s obvious the pictures out now are fake. There’s two people with the same background, supposedly dead. Anyway, I’d like a little more proof of his death besides being told that he was dumped in the Sea soon after his apparent death.
