If you know what this guy smokes, please let me know[edit]

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 217.50.59.191 (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 186.124.161.119 (talk) 05:39, 17 November 2011 (UTC)

Was the related conspiracy theories section intended to be humorous in nature? It sure seems that way.

Clean up the main page claiming OBL died in 2011 then if you want to get rid of the conspiracy garbage, 186.124.161.119.

This content is for everyone, meaning it should be truthful. 82.1.73.23 (talk) 21:18, 22 September 2015 (UTC)

Stratfor[edit]

I saw an interesting part on the wiki page about the Stratfor hack/leak that led me to this article.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2012_Stratfor_email_leak#cite_ref-9

"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.[9] 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.[10] This further fueled doubts about the US Government's account of the killings.[11]"

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 79.21.86.211 (talk) 12:14, 27 November 2012 (UTC)

Rename this to 'Skepticism'?[edit]

There are some less far fetched skepticism on here such as "lack of evidence". That wouldn't really classify as a conspiracy theory would it? RocketLauncher2 (talk) 19:56, 22 May 2013 (UTC)

Hersh[edit]

I'm not sure why Seymour Hersh is mentioned in the intro but not actually included in the article text. If it doesn't qualify as a conspiracy theory, then we should take it out; if it does, then we ought to write a section in the article about it. GABHello! 01:03, 28 August 2015 (UTC)

Hi User:GeneralizationsAreBad, I wrote that paragraph. I agree, it should just be mentioned in the lead and then expanded upon in it's own section. What do you think of a section named "Evidence that official account of Osama's death is false"? Richard☺Decal (talk) 05:32, 14 December 2015 (UTC)

If necessary, add {{cbignore}} after the link to keep me from modifying it. Alternatively, you can add {{nobots|deny=InternetArchiveBot}} to keep me off the page altogether. I made the following changes:

When you have finished reviewing my changes, please set the checked parameter below to true or failed to let others know (documentation at {{Sourcecheck}}).

Question? Archived sources still need to be checked
