The reporting of Osama Bin Ladens death opens up many questions.
I have presented what I have observed, every bit of this video is verifiable from the links mentioned. I am not stating that this is a deception, but, I would sure like to know why there are some inconsistensies found in the media report of Osama Bin Ladens reported killing by the US special forces.
1) Why was the bed overlaid on the blood pool?
2) Why were the seals of the medicines apparently unbroken?
3) Why was the body of OBL hastliy disposed, and not shown?
4) Who's responsible for circulating the neatly done fake picture of the dead Bin Laden soon after his death?
Hopefully we will find some before the election year (2012).

This is an interesting answer I found to a question:
Why would a religion that has peace in its very name be known by many by its opposite?
Hope you like it...
The Mulla was sitting inside his house, after having worked hard to support
himself and his family, after putting in another hour volunteering at the local
police station (helping them with paperwork so that the professionals would have
more time to catch criminals and preserve social order), and after volunteering
another hour serving food to the poor at the local soup kitchen.
Finally, in the late afternoon, after a brisk walk during which he recited the
Qur'an (or perhaps after lifting some weights at the gym, while remembering
Allah), he had returned home, helped his wife to prepare the dinner (since she
herself had returned from a grueling day at the school where she taught); and
after dinner he had made sure the kids were doing their homework.
During all of these activities, he had made it a point (while engaging in his
activities), simultaneously to be aware of Allah, to receive Allah's embrace,
and to be grateful for Allah's sustaining himself and all that he was aware of
throughout his day—because being such a "surrenderer" (muslim) is the essence of
what it means to be a Muslim.
He was now sitting on his prayer rug, having already prayed the salat and the
sunnah prayers, practiced the meditation of remembering Allah (dhikr Allah),
recited some Qur'an and read some hadith, sung some Rumi, Hafiz, Yunus Emre, Ibn
al-Farid, Galib, and Hamza Fansuri, and soared in contemplation of some of Ibn
'Arabi's Futuhat al-Makkiya--in short, this was an ordinary day in the life of
the Mulla, one in which he was practicing Islam in the full sense of the word.
At some point during his day the Mulla had begun feeling ecstasy (wajd), being
in love with Allah. It is hard to say when he first felt it, perhaps it was
before fajr prayer--when he kissed the forehead of his still sleeping wife
before he jumped out of bed to bathe in the light of the morning's ablution
(wudu); perhaps it was when he was teaching his class the luminous letters of
the Arabic alphabet; maybe it was at the police station or when he plopped into
his seat on the bus, surrendering his body to the motion of the bus which was
conveying him to the soup kitchen where he volunteered.
In any case it does not matter when the feeling started. Now, however, sitting
in his house, the love was drowning him, at one moment he was lost in the union
with God called fana (passing away from self), and the next moment he was still
in union but aware of himself to a slight degree, facing the Beloved, while
still one with the Beloved.
He went on for some time in this state, gazing at the Beloved's ever-changing
face on which images from his life, unconditionally sustained by his
Lord-Sustainer (rabb), would momentarily appear and disappear. These were images
of events that involved him directly as well as images of others in the past
that he had read about in school or watched on TV or on his computer, even
images of the future that he or others had imagined.
All of these images (lutfi-benevolent and qahri-severe images), together with
his thoughts and feelings about them, appeared on the Beloved's Face while He
was gazing at this Face during his union. More precisely, these images were
different appearances of his Beloved's Face. They were appearances of the many
qualities of his Beloved. They were signs (ayats) of his Beloved.
Whatever images appeared, at each moment he would surrender, in gratitude to his
Beloved for the image. Even when one of the images was a picture of himself not
being able to surrender gratefully in love to His Beloved or not wanting to
surrender with such gratitude, He continued to respond with this surrender, with
this gratitude--because he was being drawn deeper and deeper into his Beloved's
embrace and because he knew and could feel that each moment his Beloved was
inviting him and that each moment was a new moment in which He could choose to
intend to surrender or not.
Then suddenly, on his Beloved's face, a different sign of his Beloved's face
appeared. It was the image of a Muslim, cutting off somebody's head; then
another image: one of a busload of civilians blown up just after a bearded youth
crying "Allahu akbar" got on the bus; and then a Muslim throwing acid on a
woman's face; and then another Muslim blaming everything that is wrong in the
world on Jews and the Americans.
Seeing these images, although deep in the Mullah's unconscious (in his
fitra-primordial unspoiled nature) he knew these were signs on His Beloved's
face, the depth of his revulsion for these disgusting acts obliterated his
awareness that these too were signs of His Beloved. The revulsion even
obliterated his awareness of His Beloved and his awareness that he could be
grateful to His Beloved for giving Him such revulsion.
The next thing he knew, he was out of his house, shouting, with complete
sincerity, under the street lamps, "Where is my key, I've lost my key? Where is
it?" (while cursing Muslim terrorists under his breath). His neighbors, having
been disturbed by his screaming, rushed out of their houses and said, "Mullah,
where did you lose your key?" He thought for a second and replied, "I lost it
inside my house." Trying to calm him down, his neighbors asked him, "Then why
aren't you looking inside your house for it?" To which he replied, "Because it's
light out here."
May peace and God's mercy and blessings be upon us all.

Here is an English translation of the voiceover exchange between the two reporters in the clip (translation courtesy of Toshiyuki Kitamura):
We are in Arahama area. Looks like there is a dog. There is a dog. He looks tired and dirty. He must have been caught in the tsunami. He looks very dirty.
He has a collar. He must be someone's pet. He has a silver collar. He is shaking. He seems very afraid.
Oh, there is another dog. I wonder if he is dead.
Right there. There is another dog right next to the one sitting down. He is not moving. I wonder. I wonder if he is alright.
The dog is protecting him.
Yes. He is protecting the dog. That is why he did not want us to approach them. He was trying to keep us at bay.
I can't watch this. This is a very difficult to watch.
Oh. Look. He is moving. He is alive. I am so happy to see that he is alive.
Yes! Yes! He is alive.
He looks to be weakened. We need to them to be rescued soon. We really want them rescued soon.
Oh good. He's getting up.
It is amazing how they survived the tremendous earthquake and tsunami. It's just amazing that they survived through this all.
More from Livescience (http://www.livescience.com/13302-japan-injured-dog-video-social-animals.html)
A partially wet and muddied dog, seeming to shiver from both confusion and cold, runs toward a cameraman in the Arahama area of Sendai, Japan, leading him over to an injured fellow canine, lying among the wasteland of debris caused by the earthquake and tsunami that hit on March 11.
The tearjerking video, making its rounds on the Web, is a reminder of dogs' evolutionary roots as well as their social nature, according to an evolutionary biologist. [In Pictures: Japan Earthquake & Tsunami]
"I think it's an important story, because it stresses that not only do dogs bond with humans but they bond to one another as well," said Marc Bekoff, a former professor of ecology and evolutionary biology at the University of Colorado, Boulder, and a fellow of the Animal Behavior Society.
For instance, he said, various animal welfare organizations cite anecdotes of dogs grieving the loss of a fellow canine, and plenty of dog owners, including Bekoff, will attest to the strong ties dogs have with each other.
Relationships between dogs, including the two filmed in Sendai, actually go beyond bonding.
"The beauty of animal friendships is that they go well beyond bonding. They involve reciprocal aid, defense of the other in need, cleaning the other's injuries, food sharing, grooming, support in fights, consolation after distress, and so on," Emory University primatologist Frans de Waal told LiveScience. "They involve acts of empathy, and now recent studies have shown empathy in even chickens and mice, we can assume it to be a very widespread capacity indeed," said de Waal, who is also the director of the Living Links Center.
He added, "What we see in these two dogs [in Sendai] is probably more than just a bond, but involves trust, commitment, and in the end a relationship that is or has been emotionally beneficial for both parties." [See video of the dogs]
It make sense this dog would sit by its injured kin — a social behavior that may seem humanlike — since dogs did evolve from wolves, some of the most social of animals that show many cooperative behaviors.
For that reason, along with dogs' enculturation into the human world (for instance, some breeds look and "point" in human ways) as well as the fact that some were bred for human companionship and herding abilities, make dogs good models for social cognition in humans, researchers reported in a review paper published in 2003 in the journal Applied Animal Behavior Science.
Dogs and cats also appear to "get" one another. A study of the interactions between cats and dogs living under the same roof found they seem to be able to establish amicable relationships, with no gender differences found. The findings also suggest "that the majority of these dogs and cats understood the particular body language displayed by one animal that has an opposite meaning for the other species," the researchers wrote in 2008 in Applied Animal Behavior Science, adding that the earlier the age of first encounter between the two species, the better is this understanding.
The canine duo in Sendai has since been rescued, according to several news reports. According to Japan Earthquake Animal Rescue and Support, "Many of you have been asking about the YouTube dogs. As far as we know they have been rescued and are safe in Ibaraki. We are still waiting for 'after' photos but will let you know as soon as we hear an update on this," they write in a wall posting on their Facebook page.
"It's a tragedy but it just really shows how social dogs are and how they really thrive on pro-social relationships and bonding," Bekoff told LiveScience. "And people should really respect that." (He added that while many do respect dogs, some people think canines' sad, needy looks and behaviors, for instance, are just a ploy to "play them" or "work them over.")

May God Bless Both Countries!
Ahsan Javed, a member of OurMehfil, who is studying Pharamcy wishes for peace and friendship between the two nations India and Pakistan.
He made this thoughtful composition and attached the following message below for everybody.
"Jaisa daish hai Tera, Waisa daish hai Mere "
Us bai intihaa nafrat ki
Koe aisi majbooriyan nhe
Hai sarhadain qn
Jab dilon main dooriyan nhe
Kitnai saal tak hum
Aik doojai kai sae thai
Parchaeyan ban kar chalai
Hamesha, kab parae thai
Hain badlai ki huqumatain qn ?
Jb dilon main manzooriyan nhe
Hain sarhdain qn
Jb dilon main duriyan nhe
Hum sai he banai hain hindu
Hum sai he hain musalman
Pher qn hain aik doojai kai seenai
Hain hum nai hathiyar tanai
Hain sarhdain qn
Jb dilon main doriyan nhe""
