Oops, they did it again.

News broadcaster CNN was reporting on the Navy Seal who claimed credit for shooting terrorist leader Osama bin Laden in 2011. 

Earlier this week, the Bin Laden shooter was identified as Rob O'Neill.

But CNN made a huge typo when they spelled Osama's name as Obama instead, so that it read: "SEAL who claims he killed Obama under attack."

While it was taken down quickly (within a few minutes), they were still roundly mocked on the Internet.
