US diver on mission to find Osama`s body

Bill Warren wants to find Osama bin Laden`s body as proof the al Qaeda leader is really dead.



Moscow: Eccentric California salvage diver and entrepreneur Bill Warren, 59, has announced that he wants to find Osama bin Laden`s body as proof the al Qaeda leader is really dead.

"I`m doing it because I am a patriotic American who wants to know the truth. I do it for the world," Warren told the New York Post.

The nearly decade-long hunt for the elusive al Qaeda leader, believed to be the mastermind behind the 9/11 attacks, ended on May 02 after US Navy Seals gunned him down in a town close to Islamabad.

The terrorist`s body was buried at sea. The White House said it would not release graphic images of Osama`s corpse, but the CIA did later show the photographs to select US lawmakers.

"I have a Russian girlfriend, and she tells me that over there, in intelligence circles, they don`t believe bin Laden`s really dead," Warren said. "I do not trust my government or Obama."

Warren expects the search will cost about USD 400,000 and will rely on several boats and high-end technology. If Warren finds the body, he will hold a DNA test at the ship.
