Bin Laden Caught While Playing "Medal of Honor" Multiplayer
But bin Laden was discovered in an unexpected way - playing a multiplayer map on the latest installment of the Medal of Honor video game series.
Medal of Honor was recently the object of controversy after featuring the option to play as the Taliban, which was later changed to "Opposing Force" after much criticism.
Gamer Dtox56 explains how he discovered the terrorist. "The first red flag was this user's alias - deth2US - then the second was that he kept trying to lead all of the players of the Opposing Force."
American forces were then able to trace the IP address of his location to a hotel room in Dubai.
Bin Laden commented on his capture in a statement released today. "I thought I was safe, you know, to use a God-hating Capitalist phrase - 'hiding in plain sight'. Bummer."
