Osama bin Laden
Moscow, Jun 13: The world may have taken Barack Obama's word about Osama bin Laden's death, but an American celebrity is buying none of that and has set out on a mission to find the deceased terror master-mind's corpse in the depths of the sea.

Bill Warren, a 59-year old eccentric salvage diver and entrepreneur from California has announced that he wants to find out Osama's body as a proof that the terror lynch-pin is truly dead.

Warren was quoted by the New York Post as saying, "I'm doing it because I am a patriotic American who wants to know the truth. I do it for the world."

On what made him embark such a task, he said, "I have a Russian girlfriend, and she tells me that over there, in intelligence circles, they don't believe bin Laden's really dead. I do not trust my government or Obama."

He estimates that the search will coast him around $400,000 and intends to rely on several boats and sophisticated technology. If Warren finds the body, he plans to hold a DNA test at the ship.

It can be recalled that Osama bin Laden, the mastermind of numerous terror attacks around the world was killed by US Navy SEALs in a late-night operation in Abbottabad, Pakistan on May 1. The SEALs swooped on Osama's mansion in the Pakistani garrison town, killed Osama and are said to have given his corpse a sea-burial.

Hopefully, Warren finds the body and lays to rest all doubts about Osama's death and he would also do better to take a snap and let the world have a glimpse at the proof.
