Why that photo of a dead Osama bin Laden is a photoshopped fake

Hat-tip to the Telegraph’s Conrad Quilty-Harper and one sharp-eyed Redditpics user for spotting that the bottom half of the photo of a dead Osama bin Laden looks like one we already had (albeit the mirrored version).

Having taken the bottom half of the photo on the top left, I’ve just made this on photoshop in about 30 seconds. See what I mean?

It doesn’t change the fact that Osama bin Laden is dead. But it does prove that photos of the corpse are not in the public domain. Yet.

Update. I’ve been emailed the full image from which the top half is taken. It’s gory, but here – with a warning that the content may upset some – is the link for those that aren’t yet convinced.
