One official said it was clear to the assault force that the body matched bin Laden's description, but they used "facial recognition work, amongst other things, to confirm the identity."
A senior national security official told CNN that they had multiple confirmations that the body was bin Laden, saying they had the "ability to run images of the body and the face."
mmm...ok did it look like this?
Or more like this one?
I guess he must have had a white turban, it was turban recognition...
