Well, if that's the case, why doesn't special forces dude pose as a reporter and do the same thing?

Morgan Spurlock did NOT find Osama.



Nobody has been hooded and taken through safe houses to see Bin Laden in a long time, I'm sure.

And even if he did, it wouldn't make a whit of difference as he wouldn't be able to tell anyone else where he is.

Jack Bauer would have an undetectable homing device implanted in his left nipple and get taken through the safe houses. And if he couldn't bite his jugular and kill Osama(while being tied down to a chair), then at least we'd know where Osama was.

That's how he rolls.

It may be the publicity coup of the decade - or it may just be publicity. Blog-led rumours are circulating that US documentary filmmaker Morgan Spurlock tracked down the world's most wanted man, Osama bin Laden.

Spurlock, best known for his McDonalds dietumentary Super Size Me, has finished his latest project entitled Where In The World?, describing his efforts to succeed where the US government and the world's military have failed in locating bin Laden. The film won't be shown until January at the Sundance festival.

What's the evidence? Pretty flimsy. First, potential distributors who wanted to see a 15 minute clip of the documentary at the Berlin film festival in February were made to sign draconian non-disclosure agreements. Second, movie blogs such as the excellent Slashfilm got excited by a quote from Spurlock's cinematographer Daniel Marracino: "We've definitely got the Holy Grail."

What's the truth? Maybe Spurlock did track down the fugitive al-Qaida leader. But it seems unlikely. Signing non-disclosure agreements for preview screenings are not uncommon. And the quote by Marracino dates back to a July piece in Variety, which makes the context less exciting:

"We've definitely got the Holy Grail," avers Spurlock's New York-based director of photography on the project, Daniel Marracino. "Visually, this film is just going to be gorgeous."
Anyway, top marks to Spurlock's publicist, and ponder another example of the interweb's echo chamber - although not yet on the level of the Guardian's popular news item about astronaut sex, a February 2000 article that was the second most-read item on this site yesterday.
