Sounds much different when you hear the backstory, doesnt it?
The backstory is still devoid of any type of proof whatsoever. Government officials have a well known and documented history of lying about high profile incidents like this. If you believe that Obama showing his face on national television saying in effect, "Bin Laden is dead. Trust me.", then that is your right to do so.
What we are discussing in this thread is the fact that the government, full of hypocrisies and lies, contradicts itself when matters like this are brought up. The backstory is what media outlets were told, and you can be sure that it is not 100% factual.
