In an interview with esquire, the guy who shot Bin Laden told his story.
"The poverty-stricken ex-commando is now struggling to feed his family and pay for healthcare."
"[SEAL command] told me they could get me a job driving a beer truck in Milwaukee,"
"[Bin Laden] crumpled onto the floor in front of his bed. He was dead. I watched him take his last breaths," the Shooter recalls. "And I remember as I watched him breathe out the last part of air, I thought: Is this the best thing I"ve ever done, or the worst thing I"ve ever done?"

Unfortunately it was a Bin Laden look-alike admitted by the BBC.

I know, but let's pretend like it really as him for the sake of the story.

BBC admits the man gunned down was not Bin Laden and admits the OBL videos were edited by the Pentagon:

You see, this is why I rarely bother looking into the sources of conspiracy theorists: they always turn out to be bullsh!t. Nowhere in that video does the BBC admit that the man gunned down was not Bin Laden. And the second half of that video isn't even from the BBC. I can't believe I wasted 5 minutes of my life checking whether your source was accurate.

I thought it was most interesting that his first thought afterword was:

Why are you lying. The whole first half of the video was the BBC reporter interviewing the neighbors of the man alleged to be Bin Laden and the local newspaper stand and they all said that was not Bin Laden. It couldn't be any more clear, but you're clearly in denial.

Yeah, because he killed a civilian. He probably felt bad about that.

i.e. it wasn't the BBC admitting the shooting was fake, but the BBC interviewing people who thought the shooting was fake. So you're the one who is lying.

Semantics. By BBC I meant BBC report. Why do you ignore the testimony of neighbors with nothing to gain from lying?

Osama is dead.

If he was alive his associated terror groups would use each and every opportunity to post video of him alive and well to shame western media.

SEAL team 6 is a lie by the way, they don't exist anywhere outside of the official story.

It's not semantics. The BBC 'admitted' nothing. You knew perfectly well that what you wrote had very different connotations from what was actually the case, but you decided to say it anyway to push your conspiracist beliefs.

I didn't 'ignore' the testimony, that just wasn't the topic I was addressing. I was addressing your dishonesty. I dunno why, it just really annoyed me.

The BBC reporter was blatantly complicit. If the BBC wanted to denounce such claims, they would have made it clear.

Yeah, I'm the one who has been saying he was dead since 2001, that's according to inside intelligence, former head in Iraq Benazir Bhutto, and mainstream news reports.

You're the one who believed he was alive for 10 years even though he was long gone.

I'm quite a lot more familiar with the BBC than you are, apparently. It's a rare day when the BBC actually offers some opinion on something outside the 'opinion' section on its website. They interviewed some conspiracists, and broadcast the interviews free of manipulation. So fvcking what? Reading into that that they agree with the conspiracists is ridiculous. They interview countless people all the time, coming from countless different viewpoints.
