If you know what this guy smokes, please let me know
Because I'd like to experience the after-effects myself. On Russia Today, radio host Alex Jones claimed that bin Laden had been dead for nearly ten years, and that his body had been kept frozen on ice ...In 2002, he claimed that an anonymous White House source had told him that bin Laden "is frozen, literally frozen and that he would be rolled out in the future at some date" OK, this is an article that deals with conspiracy theories. BUT all those theories I read (except for the ridiculous one with Hitler vs. the Illuminati) sounded plausible BUT this one. Frozen on ice? I'll stake my claim: this guy either regularly smokes something new yet to discover by others, or he was too much in theaters watching sci-fi movies. -andy 22.214.171.124 (talk) 21:54, 26 September 2011 (UTC)
this conspiracy theories are sickening me, how could something like Illuminati which (if ever existed) ended in 1800s still be taken serious? Russians ain't interested in UBL and some idiot around trying to get his or her "10 minutes of fame" on internet I'm gonna personally work on to start cleaning up wikipedia of all that crazy conspiracy garbage on a daily basis, many people come here to read for schools, this ain't a geek forum this is content for everyone — Preceding unsigned comment added by 126.96.36.199 (talk) 05:39, 17 November 2011 (UTC)
Was the related conspiracy theories section intended to be humorous in nature? It sure seems that way.
Check ALL the sources of informtaion
Nowadays anyone can write a theory (even if they are really ridiculous) and publish it in a blog; moreover, this article collect many of the theories. However Wikipedia can not publish all the theories found on the web that dont have at least a valid reference. I found weird the theory of the sacrifice of Bin Laden. I expected at least a proper source of information to support this claim. When i clicked the link of the reference i was redirected to the Guardian.co.uk . In the beginning i believed the source was valid; however, when i read it i realized that the theory is not well researched. The Guardian took as the source of information a Wordpress article that can not be considered reliable. To sum up, at least this theory seems to have a reliable source (A Guardian article) but the source is only a poor research based on another article from Wordpress. That is the reason why i deleted this theory. Now we must be careful and check the current sources and the future sources. Some people are (deliberately or innocently) including references that fake to be reliable and valid. P.S English is not my native language, so there might be some grammatical mistakes. --Fukurou-san (talk) 00:15, 24 February 2012 (UTC)

I saw an interesting part on the wiki page about the Stratfor hack/leak that led me to this article.
"An email involving a Stratfor analyst stated that it had been determined that up to 12 officials in Pakistan's Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) agency knew of Osama bin-Laden's safe house. Another email indicated that Stratfor Vice President Fred Burton had knowledge of the killing of bin Laden, and that the body was not dumped at sea, but rather sent to Dover Air Force Base in the United States. This further fueled doubts about the US Government's account of the killings."
I think this could be an interesting addition to this page, anyone agree/disagree?
I love that there is no evidence at all on the death of Osama. No legit photos, no body. They claim they have his DNA but that hardly proves anything. Yet, this is a "conspiracy theory". Since when not believing a completely unproven claim is a "conspiracy theory", and a claim with no evidence to back it up is deemed as a fact - even by wikipedia? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 188.8.131.52 (talk) 12:14, 27 November 2012 (UTC)
