Osama Bin Elvis - Dead

With mania that Osama Bin Laden has been killed, we may need to hold the phone. DNA analysis of the man killed and buried at sea has identified him as Osama Bin Laden. Even with this, there was reason to believe the real Osama died in 2001 or '02 and in any event Osama-mania has masked that a spoiled Saudi youth who turned to terrorism and was inept at it was transmuted by the CIA's bizarre analysis into a mastermind that he never was, obscuring what international terrorism really is - state-sanctioned war by proxy.

The US Navy (whose special forces, the SEALs, performed the heroic raid) is to be commended for superb execution - in every sense of the word. But the CIA's involvement means my distrust level remains.
