The "dead bin Laden" photo splashing around on the intertubes since Sunday night was pretty quickly debunked, but that didn't stop Mexico's La Presna tabloid from running it on page one today (with, to be sorta fair, a note that "the yanquis deny it's him"). Amusingly, they seem to make their case for authenticity by running it alongside the actual photo from which it's Photoshopped, as if bin Laden had undergone a botched botox treatment that froze his face like that for the last 15 years.

Mexiphiles will also be amused to learn that the strike team's code name for bin Laden was "Geronimo" - a man who hated Mexicans more than most Americans do.
