Senator Brown Fooled by Fake Dead Osama Photo

Posted on May 4, 2011

President Obama says he will not be releasing a death photograph of Osama bin Laden. Senator Scott Brown said he had seen a photograph of dead bin Laden and that he was convinced bin Laden was dead.

Well, it turns out Senator Brown was looking at a fake photograph of dead Osama bin Laden. Brown released a statement saying, "The photo that I saw and that a lot of other people saw is not authentic."

Senator Brown is not saying how he came across the fake bin Laden death photograph. We have to wonder what potentially important people would have been passing around a fake photograph like this. Brown wouldn't have believed it if it came from just anyone.
