He’s alive and well, and his name is Barack Obama. Duh.
As for the guy who Obama magnanimously allowed to shoot Bin Laden, he’s been the subject of the latest Twitter death hoax. The Navy Times reports:
If you see posts floating around the Twittersphere that the Navy SEAL who killed Osama bin Laden is dead, don’t believe it.
The hoax claims that “Navy SEAL Todd Jones,” the man responsible for bin Laden’s death, has now been killed in combat. First off, the name of the SEAL who shot Osama has never been released. Second, an official from Navy Personnel Command told Navy Times that there is no SEAL named Todd Jones in their database.
Here’s where the hoax probably started:
R.I.P. Todd Jones. The Navy Seal that killed Osama Bin Laden died in battle today. Retweet to honor him.
