Within hours of the first news of Osama’s death, a Facebook page titled “Osama Bin Laden is DEAD” has gathered more than 300,000 likes.
The page appears to be adding thousands of likes by the minute with users also sharing hundreds of comments and links to stories about the news.
The page itself seems to have been set up well before the report of Osama’s death as it’s info section says, “Osama Bin Laden has not been found and will never be found because he died a long time ago. This may be news to you because it wasn’t in the news.”
One of the users writes on the page, “I refuse to say Rest In Peace or RIP for Osama Bin Laden, because he does not deserve to be at peace, also hell is not very peaceful place from what I understand.”
The page description goes like this “Osama Bin Laden has not been found and will never be found because he died a long time ago. This may be news to you because it wasn’t in the news. His death is critical to the CIA because they want you to believe in this so called ‘War on terror’ which has made the world a more dangerous place. If Osama Bin Laden was alive, he would’ve been found – just like Saddam Hussein. Just remember, its impossible to find a dead person.”
President Obama announced the death of Osama bin Laden earlier today. He was killed about 150 kilometers outside Islamabad, Pakistan during an operation ordered by President Obama.[
