Osama Bin Laden Corpse Photo is FAKE

  Osama Bin Laden's kill is sure to sprout up many spams and Internet threats. I've already received a few spam messages on Facebook, fake links which promised to show the Video of the Kill. You mightve noticed that an Image of a man with matted hair and a blank, half-opened eye has been spreading as well. But the fact is that picture is FAKE. It was apparently shown on Pakistani television and picked up by British newspaper websites.
  The image has been circulating for about two years and was used on the front pages of the Mail, Times, Telegraph, Sun and other websites. But those were removed after the Fake was exposed on Twitter.
According to a report at guardian.co.uk

  It appears the fake picture was initially published by the Middle East online newspaper themedialine.org on 29 April 2009, with a warning from the editor that it was "unable to ascertain whether the photo is genuine or not".
Since then, however, the image has been claimed as genuine on a number of conspiracy forums and used to substantiate claims that the terrorist responsible for the 9/11 bombings had been killed.
