Stranger than Fiction

The "capture" of Osama bin Laden: who really believes the story as it was told? Besides the hopelessly credulous, that is.

Recently had a conversation with someone who speculated that the death was faked with the complicity of President Obama. The someone reports that one very credible source had a brother on the ship from which the body was allegedly "buried at sea," and reports that he neither saw nor heard anything of the sort while on the ship at that very time. A gag order was issued out of "reverence." But nobody saw anything.

The interesting feature of this thesis is that it's at least as plausible as the one that was served by the media.
