As Obama and Osama compete for media attention in the Muslim world, you just know things like this are bound to happen.
Early on in his alleged presidency, it seemed like everyone was confusing the names of Osama and Obama. But now, over two years later...well, people are still getting them mixed up.
Especially members of Al Qaeda who are now fighting alongside the rebels in Libya, while the United States provides air cover and clears the way for them by attacking ground targets.
Having two commanding officers with such similar names could create dangerous confusion on the battlefield, but fortunately the jihadists have found an easy way to differentiate between the two leaders.
If they refer to "He who can grow a beard," everyone knows which one they're talking about.
