=== News Update ===
Ignoring the bullet hole this guy looks very healthy for ten years of dialysis. The nose is also too narrow. But the main reason to disregard this as another likely fake is simple. This image is tainted green to make it look like a night vision image, yet the soldier at right is looking off left, apparently able to see just fine without night vision goggles. And finally, there is something missing from this image that should be there (besides night vision goggles).
There is an illumination source to the upper right of the camera taking this image. You can see the resulting shadows on the jawline and cheek of the soldier. More to the point, there is clearly a shadow from the soldier’s face extending left from his face and falling on the floor and the side of “Osama’s” face. Yet there is no trace of a similar shadow from the face of “Osama” above the beard near the right eye.
And didn’t the White House say “Osama” was shot above the LEFT eye?
UPDATE: An alert reader just sent in the following. If you invert the image (create a negative) there is an obvious edge artifact in the shadow cast by the soldier at the right). This looks like a compositing artifact.
UPDATE 2: Source image found! From the movie “Blackhawk Down”.
BECAUSE YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO KNOW
