It appears I was misinformed. An e-mail sent to my entire organization stated something to the effect of, “Hey, turn on CNN, Osama’s been captured.”
So, just like the mainstream media, sometimes the little guys get duped as well.
As of this moment, it appears that Osama bin Laden has NOT been captured.
Original story follows below.

I can’t confirm this story as I’m in a television-less environment, but I’ve received word that CNN is at this moment reporting that al Qaeda leader and reputed 9/11 mastermind Osama bin Laden has been captured.
What will this mean for the war on terrorism?
What will this mean for the world?
In any event, this is — assuming the news is accurate — a moment to celebrate for the civilized world.
