That doesn’t look like him at all. I can only find one source and that’s from the instructor claiming it was him. He’s way too fine-skinned. If you look at younger pictures of OBL he’s dark-skinned. Can you show us a source please?
Edit: It’s not him and it’s not true
>Osama bin Laden was never a black belt in Judo.
>The story is just internet copy and paste.
>>He left Saudi Arabia in 1979 and except for maybe the odd trip back amongst other trips he took to Europe and the US on fund raising missions he was mainly a full time resident in Afpak throughout the entire 80s and only returned to Saudi full time in the early 90s.
>>Hence why Reuters, the original source of the story, rapidly withdrew it:
>>Please be advised that Saturday’s story from Taiwan, which quoted a judo coach saying he had trained a young Osama bin Laden in Saudi Arabia in the early 1980s, has been withdrawn.
>>Saudi judo officials challenged the account. They also said that a photograph provided by the coach, which he said showed him with bin Laden wearing judo gear, in fact portrayed another man who was training Saudi judo athletes at that time.
>>The following story has been withdrawn.
Also way too short…the dude was like 6’6" or taller.
Remember when he got shot in the head and dumped in the ocean? That was funny.
The guy on the left is Taiwanese, not Saudi
