From the evidence, the case could be made that if President Barack Obama had terrorist Osama bin Laden killed in May 2011 at the latter's Abbottabad compound in Pakistan, Obama would have had to bring him back from the dead to do so.
On December 26, 2001, the Egyptian newspaper a-l Wafd posted a death announcement for bin Laden, citing as its source "a prominent official in the Afghan Taleban movement." According to the source, bin Laden had received a formal Islamic burial ten days prior in Tora Bora.
On July 30, 2002, CNN headlined an article "Sources: No bodyguards, no bin Laden." Apparently, several members of bin Laden's security team had been captured and shipped to Guantanamo. Reported CNN, "Some high-level U.S. officials are already convinced by such evidence that bin Laden, who has not been seen or heard from in months, is dead."
On October 7, 2002, CNN ran a speculative article citing Afghan president Hamid Karzai, headlined "Karzai: bin Laden 'probably' dead." On May 10, 2003, the U.K.'s Independent headlined an article, "Bin Laden died from wounds suffered in Tora Bora air raid, says Arab expert." The expert in question traced his death to December 2001, the same month as the notice in the Egyptian paper.
Bin Laden had been in poor health for several years. In March 2000, Asia Week described him as having "a kidney infection that is propagating itself to the liver and requires specialized treatment." Additionally, a mobile dialysis machine had been delivered to his hideout in Kandahar in the first half of 2000. Examining a video from December 2001, CNN medical correspondent Dr. Sanjay Gupta argued that bin Laden was likely suffering from "chronic kidney failure, renal failure."

This was brought on by 5.56 rounds through the kidneys.
So Bush 41 got’em. No wonder the media was making Tora Bora to be a failure.
That’s a good one. My sides are splittin.
He probably was killed in Tora Bora but we had to kill the myth that he was still alive. Either way he’s bye bye.
COVID-19. It’s Trump’s fault, but 0moeba gets the credit for stern leadership.
There is no death/murder/assassination without a body.
Missing from this story is any comment from James O’Neal, the Navy Seal credited with the fatal shots. It seems to me that his input would be important.

Gee, that NEVER happens
And OBL was oh so conveniently killed in the night, his body carried to sea, “buried” at sea, and then the entire Seal Team Six murdered in a helicopter shootdown. By Muslims as they took off.
They dumped his body in the ocean, so how can there be a body?
How many Muslims have you ever seen buried at sea in keeping with Islamic tradition? No pictures?
My BS meter was overwhelmed a long time ago. More bread and circuses for the masses.
IIRC, they did DNA testing on the remains recovered from Abbottabad. It was him.

I believe ONeal. And, the rest of the Seal team and their support teams.
