The fake picture of a dead Osama Bin Laden was created as an April Fools Prank on April 1, 2009.

There is a news story aboutu it here:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xLorDYuS7oY

If you would like to see the original CNN webpage image of the prank, showing the April 1, 2009 date, search Facebook for SATNAM BLACK

Although I am wary of youtube vids, or stories of OBL pics (due to a report that some hackers were trying to hide viruses in them),
Looks like a legit ‘hoax’ story to me. smile

Could you please “flesh it out” a little for us? (Are you saying that you created a pic that was then taken as truth by a news source?)

Thanks.
