In one of the most epic news failures ever, a German reporter credited the Maquis of Star Trek for taking down Bin Laden. Trek Movie found this, and it’s absolutely hilarious. SEAL Team 6 is credited for being part of the raid that took out Osama Bin Laden, and for their report on the story the German channel did a quick Google search for “Seals Team VI” and found a patch that to them looked like it may be used for the actual team. The skull in particular was pretty convincing. Too bad they didn’t realize that it was a Klingon skull.
