Edward Snowden Says Osama Is Alive: When Zee News Fell For Satirical Piece

Conspiracy theories are a favourite when it comes to catering to Indian audiences and sections of the media have cottoned on to this fact. The recent theories coming out one after the other in a recent murder case bear testimony to this. But Zee News has taken this trend to another level with an explosive revelation involving none other than Osama Bin Laden himself. If a World News Daily Report is to be believed, espionage superstar Edward Snowden has claimed that the ace terrorist is alive and is in Bahamas, partying at the Central Intelligence Agency's expense.

ut what Zee News didn't read is WNDR's disclaimer: WNDR assumes however all responsibility for the satirical nature of its articles and for the fictional nature of their content. All characters appearing in the articles in this website – even those based on real people – are entirely fictional and any resemblance between them and any persons, living, dead, or undead is purely a miracle.

The Zee News report goes on to claim that Osama is on the CIA's payroll, get paid $1 lakh and has been one of the agency's most efficient and valuable employees. This one comes in a series of serious exposes that followed Osama's assassination back in 2011.

Snowden reportedly says that he knew that Osama lived there till 2013, and that through a "series of companies and accounts" the money was wired to Osama.

But the best part is that Zee News remembers to mention that the claims have not been substantiated by any source. But the news agency forgot to mention that this article was originally taken from satirical websites.
