Obama Administration Lies and Spins on the Killing of Osama bin Laden

There's not one iota of proof that the U.S. Navy SEALs has killed the REAL CIA-made-world-terrorist, Osama bin Laden. There's plenty of proof that CIA's tactic is an attempt to fool the public with disinformation, inconsistencies, and confusion for its multiple ulterior motives. 

The mainstream media lapped up the spoon-fed storyline by the U.S. administration, heaping praises on President Obama and the CIA for a job well done, until their story started to unravel under the scrutiny of the skeptic public. 

First, the fake photo of the bloody Osama bin Laden appeared in mainstream media and went viral over the Internet for a day or so.  

To show how inconsistent the news stories on the "kill bin Laden" 40-minute operation have been, three versions have appeared in different parts of the world: AFP (Pakistan Hits Back Over Bin Laden Furore), Xinhua (Pakistani armed forces not involved in operation killing bin Laden), and The Tribune, Pakistan (The Operation: What exactly happened in Abbottabad).   

According to a Pakistani witness account on youtube (Osama bin Laden killing witness account), firing of shots and several large explosions occurred during the US Special Forces midnight raid. 

On Sunday, President Obama along with top officials, including Vice President Joe Biden and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, were in the Situation Room watching real time-footage of two Navy SEAL teams storming the hideout of the suspect, Osama bin Laden. If they could watch the commandos entering the compound, then the whole operation, step by step, including the shootings of Osama bin Laden and his companions, was captured on cameras mounted on SEALs' helmets. 

Today the White House changed its story as more discrepancies started to surface. 

The discrepancies in reports and witness accounts raise key issues that the Obama administration needs to address: 

whether the U.S. Blackhawk helicopter was shot down or crashed due to mechanical failure

    What could have caused the helicopter's sudden mechanical failure?

whether the CIA operation was an assassination mission against the suspect, Osama bin Laden, who was unarmed 

    Why kill an unarmed man? Why shoot him more than once?

whether the commandos took prisoners back with them 

    Why kill ALL the men (four) and a woman, when two elite SEAL teams consisting of 25 members could easily overpower  them? 

whether the "extrajudicial execution" of bin Laden committed by the U.S. in Pakistan has violated international  human rights law

    Why does the U.S. think it's above international law to conduct extrajudicial killings with impunity on foreign soil?
