Where's Osama bin Laden's National Enquirer Cover?

Well, looks like they screwed that one up, didn't they?
Pentagon officials recently disclosed to the Associated Press (AP) that they could not find any photo or video evidence to confirm that Al Qaeda leader Osama Bin Laden was killed in the Navy Seal raid in Pakistan a year ago. AP has submitted more than 20 requests for information surrounding the raid on Bin Laden’s Abbottabad compound to the U.S. Government under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA). In response to the request for visual evidence of Bin Laden’s death, the Pentagon stated that it could not find any pictures or video footage of the raid itself or of Bin Laden’s dead body. It also told AP it could not locate any images of Bin Laden’s body that were taken on the U.S.S. Carl Vinson, the Navy aircraft carrier that reportedly lowered him into the sea after his death.
Well that's just awesome. The story is already full of holes and, well, completely weird. You mean NO ONE got a picture of the dude with his face blown off? No one thought to grab the camera and Instagram that shit?

So... here are the possibilities:

A) The Pentagon is full of shit and holding out on us. That's lying but not stupidity.
B) The Pentagon is telling the truth and everyone royally screwed this one up.
C) The Pentagon is telling the truth because Osama bin Laden actually died years ago, therefore they wouldn't have photos or video of a raid that never happened. More and more, I believe this is the correct scenario.

It's shameful, really. Just what we don't need, Osama bin Laden sightings at the mall. Come on, people, pics or it didn't happen!

Some say he’s half man half fish, others say he’s more of a seventy/thirty split. Either way he’s a fishy bastard.

I was pumping gas into Francine this morning at the Quickie Mart and when I went in to pay for the tank of premium 93 octane, OBL was at the counter to take my Ben Bernanke Fun Bucks as payment. Just for grins, I scribbled "Death to America" on the $20 and he just smiled.

I'm less concerned with which is the most likely scenario and more concerned with the awesomeness of the photo accompanying this post.

p.s. Your capcha sucks today
