Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad told the participants at the Tehran “International Conference on Global Alliance against Terrorism for Just Peace” that Bin Laden’s death was a US political stunt. That’s why the Obama Administration never released any photos.

Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad dismissed the US allegations about the hunt down of the Al-Qaeda Leader, Osama bin Laden, as an act staged on the world scene to secure a victory for the US ruling party in upcoming elections.
“We have precise information that the person they have recently killed has long been in the hands of the US militaries,” Ahmadinejad said on Sunday, addressing a meeting with participants in the Tehran “International Conference on Global Alliance against Terrorism for Just Peace”.
He reminded that bin Laden served as a precious pretext for the US to invade “our region and we witness the murder of 150 people in Pakistan each day”.
“We have precise information that they killed him not as a move to fight terrorism, but to feed the propaganda inside the US society to win the vote of the people in (upcoming) elections,” the Iranian president added.
Iran’s Intelligence Minister Heidar Moslehi had also earlier announced that Tehran had genuine intelligence showing that al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden had died of disease long before the United States’ alleged raid.
“We have accurate information that bin Laden died of illness some time ago,” Moslehi told reporters on the sidelines of a Cabinet meeting last Sunday.
He questioned Washington’s claim that bin Laden was killed by American troops in a hiding compound in Pakistan on May 1.
“If the US military and intelligence apparatus have really arrested or killed bin Laden, why don’t they show him (his dead body) why have they thrown his corpse into the sea?”
…US officials claimed that they have dropped bin Laden’s body in the Arabian Sea after conducting the necessary postmortem examinations and DNA tests to make sure of his identity.
Yet, a US official later announced that bin Laden’s hasty burial was in accordance with the Islamic law, requiring burial within 24 hours of death.
However, burial at sea is not an Islamic practice and Islam does not have a timeframe for burial. Moslehi asked.
Once again, it looks like Barack Obama created an international clusterfark by trying to appease the Islamists.
Good work, Barack.
