Bin Laden's Body Found?
An American treasure hunter is claiming to have found the final resting place of Osama Bin Laden. He is now trying to raise the funds to photograph the body in the murky deep of the Arabian Sea.
Bill Warren states it is his patriotic duty to find and record Bin Laden's body and present that proof to the American people.
American treasure hunter Bill Warren has claimed to have located Osama bin Laden's body bag deep under the Arabian Sea, 320 kilometres west of Surat in Gujarat, and hopes to start his mission on June 1. "I've located where they threw him away," Daily Mail quoted him as telling Spanish newspaper El Mundo. "I'm the only one with this information."
With the help of recent photos released by the US Navy showing the Laden's final resting place, Warren claims to have pinpointed the location of the body bag, and now wants USD 200,000 to recover it from the sea.
"We do this because we are patriotic Americans and feel that President Barack Obama failed to provide the proof," he said.
The treasure hunter, who claims he doesn't believe the official story that the terror mastermind was buried at sea, started hunting for the body last June.
Warren said he was working his contacts in Azerbaijan, where he was trying to locate some old ships, to rent Russian deep diving equipment for his bin Laden assignment.
He was also aware of the perils of his mission because the US government could kill him or sink his boat, the report said.
But he said he wouldn't raise bin Laden's body to the surface.
Instead, he would take a few photographs, videotape the entire "experience" and take a chunk of flesh for DNA tests.
From the Cornfield, not sure what to think about this.
Should Warren pursue his quest?
Do the American people need to see "proof" that Bin Laden is gone?
Do the American people need DNA evidence?
What of Warren's fear that the US government may try and stop him?
