FBI.Gov

First off, I won’t to apologize for the scarce updates on here, but as I said on the site’s facebook page Saturday; my laptop is broken and until it either gets repaired or I purchase a new one (which I am currently saving up for) I will only be able to blog from libraries.

Treasure hunter wants to find Bin Laden’s body

Last May when it was announced to the world that Seal Team six had hunted down and killed Bin Laden before disposing of his corpse at sea, the decade long hunt for the world’s most wanted terrorist seemed to be over.

Now if a treasure hunter has his way, a new hunt for Bin Laden will be soon just beginning. This time in search of Bin Laden’s body, to find out if the Al-Queda founder is really dead.

Bill Warren, 67, wants to set out to find bin Laden’s body after Navy Seals lowered his body into the North Arabian Sea.

“I am mainly doing it to prove a point to see if he is really dead,” Warren said.

Warren claims he has a good idea where bin Laden’s body is located, and said his 180-foot boat is waiting in Western India with high-tech equipment that can point out just about anything in water.

“It’s what they found the Titanic with, it’s sidescan sonar, and it’s very high tech,” Warren said.

There’s a lot of thought that finding the body in an open ocean will be very difficult, and bin Laden’s body may be decomposed beyond recognition.

“The fish can’t get at it.  It’s in a sealed Navy burial bag, zipped up,” Warren said. “White canvass rubber lined inside, 200-pounds of weights.”

Warren already has plans if he does find the corpse.

“We would photograph, videotape, do a DNA test and then try to figure out what we are going to do with his body after that,” he said.

Didn’t see this one coming, former Governor Mitt Romney (R-MA) is running for president

 

If there could possibly be  a centilla of doubt that Mitt Romney would enter the 2012 Republican field, it was stomped out Wednesday afternoon when the former Massachusetts Governor and 2008 GOP Presidential aspirant officially kicked off his Presidential campaign.

    Standing before a crowd of supporters outside a farm in southern New Hampshire, Romney hammered President Obama for his handling of an anemic economy, the increase in the size of the Federal Government.

StrangeCreek 2011 Program

      One of the features in my coverage of the ‘StrangeCreek Campout’ of this past  weekend that will be up on this site; is this recreation of a small pamphlet all Creek goers recieved upon arrival. Within its small black and white pages were statements, rules, and most importantly rosters of all the bands playing at the event’s three stages.            

      I did my best to replicate the flavor of the event that is in those pages, even photopgraphing the advertisments for other upcoming events. Also, in the rosters I provided a link to the information page of each band’s facebook, myspace, or offical website to give readers more information on the bands themselves. Excuse any spelling or grammatical mistakes in the texts below, chances are that is how they appeared in the actual pamphlets. Having  invested a real lot of work into this, I hope you will enjoy this feature. The photographs and a short article on the event will be posted in the next few days.
