Today marks the 11th anniversary of the terrorist attacks of 9/11/2001. And to mark the date, let’s think of all the fun and creative projects we could do with the skull of Osama bin Laden. Get out your markers, glitter, glue and dried macaroni!
Academy award winning director Kathryn Bigelow is currently shooting her new movie, ‘Zero Dark Thirty’ about the hunt for and eventual killing of Osama bin Laden. But some in Washington are a bit alarmed that the Pentagon, White House and CIA opened up so much information to her and her screenwriters, much of which has not been made available to the public or to lawmakers.
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.
"I wanna dance with somebody…"
For his sake, perhaps it’s better than bin Laden was killed when he was, rather than to have lived to see his favorite pop star die an untimely death. Whitney Houston has millions of fans, but perhaps none as notorious as Osama bin Laden.
When US soldiers killed Osama bin Laden, the body was taken into custody and dumped into the Indian Ocean, but there were no photos and no public confirmation. Some believed that bin Laden never was killed, even though Al-Qaeda confirmed the death. So then why, when Gizmodo put in a FOIA request for information on the body, did the government come back with “We have absolutely no information”?
This one goes out to all the ladies. Signed, leader of Allah’s Sexy Angels.
In documents seized after the death of Osama bin Laden, the former terror leader turned shark food talked about how he wanted to change the name of Al Qaeda after somebody went and sullied the name by killing lots of Muslims. The nerve. There’s nothing that says what he wanted to change the name to, but he wanted something that would be more appealing and didn’t carry a lot of baggage. How about “Happy Cool People’s Club that in No Way Kills Thousands of Muslims in Car Bombings. Really.”
When the US military dumped Osama bin Laden’s body into the Arabian Sea, the point was to make sure that no one would find the body so that there would be no central place of reverence that supporters of bin Laden could use as a rallying point. But bin Laden’s body may not be quite as lost to the sea as you might think, and 67 year old Bill Warren is determined he can find it.
In a sign that we’re perhaps nearing the end of the death of Osama bin Laden news cycle, Hustler has announced that they’re planning a XXX Osama porn parody. Press release after the break.
Extreeeeeme Muslim websites recently posted what is supposedly the last (?) audio tape of Osama bin Laden, in which he calls for solidarity among Muslims. The tape has not been completely verified, but most seem to think that it is indeed the voice of bin Laden.
Newly released footage shows the last thing bin Laden saw
Despite efforts by the White House to keep the nitty gritty details of the raid on bin Laden’s compound in Pakistan secret and confidential, the very next day after Obama announced the death of bin Laden, details started leaking out all over the place, and then a couple days ago, a Navy insider went and blabbed all sorts of details to the AP. But honestly, who can blame them? It’s a cool story, bro.
Disney trademarks “SEAL Team 6”. I’m hoping for something along the lines of G-Force, only with more cute arctic animals
Since the second president Obama announced the death of Osama bin Laden, Hollywood’s been figuring out how they could turn the daring military raid into a blockbuster film. And it looks like that Disney’s trying to get a leg up on everyone else by applying for a trademark for the name “SEAL Team 6”.
