Welcome to the United States of Conspiracy Theorists

Apparently confirmation from Al Qaeda is not enough to keep well funded nut-jobs like this guy from proving that Obama is the real enemy.

Next month, a 67-year-old salvage diver from Fallbrook, California will journey to the North Arabian Sea to comb the depths of the ocean in search of the body of Osama bin Laden. It’s a very expensive obsession this man has, and it made him very popular in the national and local media this weekend. Here’s what we know about Bill Warren, the Osama hunter who refuses to give up.

Who is this guy? He’s a self-proclaimed “expert underwater treasure hunter.” According to the New York Post, he has found “more than 200 wrecks” and is “confident he can find bin Laden’s body.” He told CNN that “there’s no treasure that’s ever eluded him, and doesn’t expect bin Laden’s corpse to be the first.” He insisted, “There’s never been a shipwreck I didn’t find.”

Why’s he doing it? The man is skeptical of the White House, especially after it refused to publish photos of bin Laden’s corpse. “I am mainly doing it to prove a point to see if he is really dead,” he told San Diego affiliate Channel 6. “We do this because we are patriotic Americans and feel that President Obama failed to provide the proof,” he told TMZ. The New York Post got the best quote from him. “The Obama administration should have released the photo, like we did with Billy the Kid, or [John] Dillinger, or even Saddam Hussein,” 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.”
