Here are some facts that work against the death being a hoax. Bin Laden's three wives are in Pakistani custody, and the U.S. wants access to them. Al-Qaida leaders confirmed the death. I don't know ... but I'm guessing his wives and al-Qaida leaders would know if he's been dead for nine years.
In order for it to be a hoax, everyone in the U.S. government, Pakistan, bin Laden's wives, and al-Qaida would all have to be involved in the coverup.
AQ is a CIA-created group. They hardly have any credibility to speak of
