I was being sarcastic, of course this is how all or most of the US citizens are.

Seriously? People are doubting the validity of this? The US organized a raid in Pakistan, after which Pakistan threatened dire consequences for the US if they ever do something like this again. What were we doing in Pakistan besides killing Osama?

I should note, no matter how you answer this, you will look like a conspiracy theorist.

The way you think in absolutes is hilarious to me.

Based on the evidence presented, I do believe Osama Bin laden is most likely dead.
Based on the evidence not presented, I do not completely believe or disbelieve that the information presented by the government about the details of Osama Bin Laden's death are completely true.

Take a class on critical thinking sometime.

Why do people doubt it?
He'd just need to leak a new video and we would go berserk about them lying to us and everything would go to hell.
Releasing pictures of him dead would just be trolling and begging for an attack.
Besides, a lot of people would still probably think it was a fake photo, or that it looks too grisly for us to know if it was him.

I mostly pop in occasionally to give my two cents on certain controversial things, so if you disagree then send a PM, because I generally don't check for replies in threads in case I feel like replying and then things get heated/derailed.

I'd be pretty disgusted if they did release a picture, at any rate. I wouldn't be surprised if a lot of other people feel the same way and to a greater extent, so I understand the administration's decision not to do so.

My sarcasm radar is broken. I am ashamed.

Could you show me at what point I said that the government has been completely forthright with this information?

I was specifically referencing the fact that people were skeptical whether or not he was really dead. If he's not, then what were we doing in Pakistan? You need to account for that, at which point we get into theories most likely conspiratorial in nature.

At any rate, more military action in Pakistan:

...and revenge attacks by Al Qaeda in Pakistan today:
