We live in a world where (some) people believe that the President of the United States forged his own birth certificate with the collusion of the state of Hawaii; you think a 19-year-old terrorist recruit in Whatthefuckistan is gonna just take the word of the United States government that the leader of Al Qaeda was buried at sea?
Thinking I was cute, I posted a comment on my Facebook Wall this morning saying something to the effect of, "Donald Trump won't believe Osama is dead until he sees the birth certificate."
A half-hour later, my conservative aunt replied with, verbatim, "Neither will I!"
There's no way the current administration is going to walk away with credit for this. It's going to be hailed as a hoax, or it'll be painted to look like he was just applying the final brushstrokes to a Bush administration project. Yes, I wish they took him alive so he could be questioned and tried, but you can't exactly tackle and cuff a man in a militarized compound. It's not as simple as just completing an extended QTE and mashing the [A] button when the prompt appears.
