Al Qaeda Falls for Elaborate White House Hoax

“Al Qaeda released a statement on jihadist forums Friday confirming the death of its leader, Osama bin Laden, according to SITE Intelligence Group, which monitors Islamist websites.” [CNN]


Facts, the bane of any tin foil hat wearing conspiracy theorist.

They’re in on it.

Osama’s free to live out the rest of his life in luxury back home in Saudi Arabia now that the US has killed his body double–or filmed the whole thing on the Warner’s backlot and added CGI, whichever. Look closely and you’ll see Lorelei’s house from Gilmore Girls in the edge of the photo next to OBL’s “compound.”

@¡Andrew!: I was happier when I only had to read about this stuff every six months or so when the Times did one of their American Freakshow pull-out supplements.

@Benedick: Whatever I come up with in jest, our home-grown Neo-Nutzies are gonna cook up somethin’ 1,000 times more looney toonz.
