Jim Corr: 'Osama Bin Laden has been dead for 10 years'

He also labels his native Ireland 'a political tyranny'

Jim Corr: 'Osama Bin Laden has been dead for 10 years'
Jim Corr, formerly guitarist with The Corrs, has told the world about his own theory about the death of Osama Bin Laden, suggesting that the founder of al-Qaeda actually died 10 years ago.

The hitmaker, who has been an active member of a conspiracy theory group 911 Truth Movement in the past few years, has published his own beliefs on his Twitter page and on his official website,

Despite it being confirmed by US President Barack Obama that Bin Laden was killed in the city of Abbottabad in Pakistan on Monday (May 2), Corr has posted a spoof poster on his site which has the slogan "they dug him up and killed him again".

He has also retweeted a series of articles which suggest Bin Laden died in 2001.

Corr's scepticism of Obama's statements are perhaps unsurprising as he recently published a link to an article which was titled 'Obama Birth Certificate exposed as a layered, Photoshopped fraud'.

He has also retweeted a series of articles which suggest that his native Ireland is "a political tyranny" and published a message to his followers on Twitter and Facebook, which reads: "Wake up people! Every time you turn around your rights are being taken away! You have a greater chance of being struck by lightning than a victim of a terrorist attack!"

Corr's site also shows he is a booked as a guest speaker at a touring conference, which is titled: The Masterplan: The Hidden Agenda For A Global Scientific Dictatorship.
