'Patriotic American' Diver Launches Underwater Search for Osama bin Laden's Body

California salvage diver Bill Warren wants to find Osama bin Laden's body to prove that he's dead, the NY Post reports:

Warren Warren, who has discovered more than 200 wrecks, is confident he can find bin Laden's body. American Special Forces killed the jihadist on May 2 in Pakistan.

"I'm doing it because I am a patriotic American who wants to know the truth. I do it for the world," Warren told The Post.

He expects to spend about $400,000 on a two-week jaunt next month. He plans to rent a ship in India for $10,000 a day, and spend another $1,000 a day for a remote-operated submarine.

Warren plans to scour the Arabian Sea. "If Warren finds the body, he will hold a DNA test at the ship," IANS/RIA Novosti adds.

  1. Why doesn't this "patriotic American" do something constructive with his half million, like giving it to a school or a charity that feeds the hungry? What a dipshit.

  2. Ahh, I see what you did there. When you can't find him for obvious reasons, you can validate your conspiracy theories.

  7. Right. He might be alive and he's laying low and Al Qaeda is acting like he's dead because they just want the US to feel good about itself again.

    Even in his most well-intentioned, this reminds me of the fanatic American John Yettaw broke through security and trespassed on Aung San Suu Kyi's home, resulting in an extension of her house arrest.

    Stupid actions, without thought of consequence or frivolousness, will help no one and embarrass or endanger everyone.

    Go away and do something worthwhile and actually helpful with your money.

  9. I didn't know that anyone thought he was still alive, I agree with those who think the 400k should be spent on charitable causes.

  12. Osama most likely fed a nice family of sharks, the most good he ever did for any living being.

  17. I'm usually anti-violence and pretty much always anti-AlQueda, but if terrorists were to "suicide boat bomb" this IDIOT'S search boat, I wouldn't shed a tear.

  18. @ Dennis, my thoughts exactly, Darwinism at it's finest.

  21. What, the words of the patriotic American servicemen who got Osama aren't good enough? Why does this guy hate America?

  24. This patriotic fame whore should spent that money in a more constructive fashion.

  25. For the love of Pete - Just when you think the world cannot get any crazier! $10K a day to rent the boat upon which to base this totally needless farce! Fools and their money - just wish he was spending it here in the states to give the economy a shot in the arm.
