After the US military killed bin Laden, they put his body in a weighted, watertight body bag and shoved him somewhere in the Indian Ocean. The idea was that they didn’t want bin Laden’s burial place to become a shrine, so they just fed him to the fishes. Now, deep sea treasure hunter Bill Warren says he’s pretty sure he’s found the body and is raising funds to get it.
Warren notes that “many millions of people” don’t trust the Obama administration’s version of what happened during and after the raid. “This search will attempt to prove one way or the other that bin Laden is dead,” he says on his website. He had to call off his search last summer “for lack of interest and lack of financing,” but is confident he can raise the $300,000 he needs for this year’s expedition, possibly in Azerbaijan. “There’s lots of oil money here,” he tells El Mundo.
How does he know where the body is?
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 assures El Mundo that it’s about “200 miles west of the Indian city of Surat.”
And he’s really going to go looking for the corpse?
That’s the plan. Warren says that if the money materializes, he has ships lined up to launch on June 1, and wagers that he’ll find the body within a week, but no later than three months. That puts his quest smack dab in the middle of the U.S. presidential race. “The only fear I have now is that the U.S. attempts to kill me,” Warren tells El Mundo. “Or sink our ship. It’s a great risk… You can’t hide from America.”
