    Osama Bin Laden died in December of 2001 of natural causes! Don't be fooled Mr. President! Don't be fooled America! 9/11 was an inside job! Joblessness, career failure, unattainable education and success it is not life as it goes! It is the New World Order! Take up arms and revolt! Kill! Destroy!
