Stats usually range between twenty and fifty percent of the population-- those who don't buy the official 911 report of what happened. Truthers talk about false flag operations and alternate explanations for why the WTC towers collapsed.

This report from Obama-- that Bid Laden was tracked, killed, then buried at sea-- may satisfy some, but it will leave millions very unsatisfied. I can't imagine an explanation for ditching the evidence that will be satisfactory. 

On the contrary, the missing hard evidence will surely raise more suspicions than ever. Of course, the mainstream media will squelch and mock those who again raise the truther question-- "Was Bid Laden even involved in the 911 attack?"

Any discussion of the suspicious nature of the dumping of the body will surely be attacked as crazy conspiracy theorizing. I wouldn't be surprised if the birthers take up the question. They need something to do now that the official release of the Obama long form birth certificate has made them look like idiots (well, even  more like idiots.)

Put the truthers and the birthers together and you may actually have a majority of Americans who don't believe that Bin Laden was killed by American troops. What? Don't believe the reports of the military? Two words; Pat Tillman.

I'm in no position to know if the report of the death is true or not. I doubt that there are many who are. 

Here's a  possible scenario. 

Obama appointed CIA head Leon Panetta hand picks a CIA operative to lead an intel team to find Bin Laden in Pakistan. 

The operative reports to his team that the resources the CIA has cultivated in the field have found signs of Bin Laden. He reports back to his team and encourages the sources to check back further. 

The sources provide further evidence that Bin Laden is indeed in hiding in Abbottabad, about 40 miles from Islamabad... in a compound. 

The Panetta-picked CIA operative reports back to Panetta, who reports to Obama, who authorizes a kill. 

The CIA operative sources a Navy seal team goes in to "search" the compound for Bin Laden. . The CIA operative keeps the rest of the team behind him (or her) finds his target, shoots him in the eye, through the head, destroying his face, then bags him, with the help of the Navy seals.  The team kills the rest of the people in the compound in a "firefight."

The team removes the body and returns it to some facility in Islamabad where a helicopter is awaiting to remove the body from Pakistani territory, probably to a US naval vessel. 

My point is, it's possible to go that far with only one person actually seeing the target. It's even possible that that person didn't know who he was shooting, that a second party was coordinating the intelligence and the shooter only followed orders. That would mean that no-one could be certain, who actually saw the target and knew who he was, that Bin Laden was the one killed. 

So, we have a team that's been in on a kill, that escorted out a body bag. There's a naval vessel where some people collected evidence-- a photo of a face blasted to smithereens, blood samples, maybe an X-ray, CAT scan or MRI.  

I'm sorry. There's nothing like the real evidence, the body, to prove someone is dead, particularly a mysterious, mythic person like Bin Laden. Imagine if someone, some team reported that they'd captured and killed the Loch Ness monster, then dumped it at sea. Right.

Rob began his Bottom-up Radio show, broadcast on WNJC 1360 AM to Metro Philly, also available on iTunes, covering the transition of our culture, business and world from predominantly Top-down (hierarchical, centralized, authoritarian, patriarchal, big)  to bottom-up (egalitarian, local, interdependent, grassroots, archetypal feminine and small.)
