Has A California Treasure Hunter Found Osama’s Body?

Osama bin LadenThe most shocking discovery to come this year? An ideal plotline for Weekend at Bernie’s 3? Or all of the above? The Week on the most sought-after treasure on Earth, Osama bin Laden’s corpse:

Last spring, days after a team of Navy SEALs shot and killed Osama bin Laden, helicoptered his body to a Navy warship, then dumped it somewhere in the Arabian Sea, California undersea treasure hunter Bill Warren decided to go find it.

A year later, Warren [claims] that he’s nailed down the spot where the Navy heaved the body overboard, and will mount an expedition this summer to drag bin Laden’s corpse up from its watery grave, photograph it, and take DNA samples. Warren says he discerned the location from satellite images shared by a Pentagon source. The images purportedly show exactly where the body was thrown overboard last May. Of course, Warren won’t divulge the location, but [says] that it’s about “200 miles west of the Indian city of Surat.”

Who exactly is Bill Warren? He owns an undersea salvage company, and by his count, has discovered more than 150 shipwrecks, but also failed — twice — to unearth a gold-laden Spanish caravel called the Trinidad.

    He will not find anything.  The fact that the government could even get away with the story “oh yeah we threw his body into the sea” is mind-blowing.  It makes me wonder if they did not want to encourage doubt and skepticism just to cloud the issue – keep people distracted by “what really happened to Bin Laden’s body” instead of asking the more difficult questions and finding the more disturbing answers.  I’m not making any declarative statements – not saying OBL is alive or anything else.  All I know is you don’t claim to dump the body of the #1 most wanted terrorist in the ocean before any confirmation can be made if the story we as the public know is above-board.  That act alone let’s us know it isn’t.  I don’t know what the full story is, but I know we don’t have it.  As usual.

      Of COURSE he’s not going to find anything! …..The bodies been floating in the ocean for over a year! It’s fish food! As far as not believing the account of this story from the Gov….So the fact that Osama’s own daughter went on TV claiming the US had murdered her dad in cold blood isn’t enough proof for you?

      They did make confirmation, dude.  Don’t make conspiracy theories without all the information, please. (http://healthland.time.com/2011/05/02/its-a-match-how-officials-used-dna-to-identify-bin-laden/)

      If you’re implying that they lied about the DNA evidence or something… Well, I’m sure you think George W took the WTCs down in the first place.

    Too bad his body wasn’t dumped… Maybe he’ll find Atlantis in the mean time…

    Osama Bin Laden died in the Tora mountains in Afghanistan in 2003 as reported by Reuters at the time, and as verified by the Pakistani Secret Service and several Taliban informants.

      But not according to Al Quaida, who made no attempt to dispute BL’s death, and then threatened revenge, an obvious admission of the fact. The photos put forward of BL in his home were him – look at profile, ears, forehead etc. Even BL’s wives did not dispute his death.

      • cakeypig

         It would all depend, Marcus, on just how far down the rabbit hole you want to go 😉

      • FactTime

        If “Al Quaida” was separate from the CIA, that story would be semi-believable.


  • StillAtMyMoms

    Of all the treasure hunters all over the world, it has to be an AMERICAN “treasure hunter”?  Wow, sounds like a CIA agent to extract the FAKE cadaver at the supposed bottom of the ocean.

      Who else would give a shit? 

  • Frankensteinmoneymac

    Yeah…so the guy’s going to find a corpse that’s been floating in the ocean for over a year……Sure..Good luck with that buddy! 

    • Esvrw2

       Actually, floating is not quite right. When the Navy does a burial at sea the corpse is weighted and sunk to the bottom.

    well if he dies before or during his expedition you know somethings up. secondly, i like ”
    but also failed — twice — to unearth a gold-laden Spanish caravel called the Trinidad.” way to give him a kick in the balls for no reason.

    Osama B. Laden has been dead for years. If he finds anything, the DNA wont match, so if he finds a body, it wont confirm anything.
