The conspiracist and friend-of-Charlie Sheen Alex Jones is on the case, of course, arguing that Bin Laden has been dead for years. This, from the Cheech and Chong (!) fan website:

Alex Jones was told live on the radio in 2002 by high-level Council on Foreign Relations members that Osama Bin Laden had died of kidney failure in early 2002.

"I have it from high level [sources] from inside the Bush administration...that bin Laden died of natural causes and that his family has given the body to the CIA, that they're gonna roll him out right before the election, that he's on ice right now. They will claim they killed him right before the election," Alex said at the time.
