As most people already know, Osama Bin Laden was killed earlier this year.

Call of Duty 4 takes place in 2011. Since (with obvious reasons), Osama Bin Laden isn't mentioned nor is Al-Qaeda, wouldn't it be safe to say that CoD4 takes place sometime in late summer to early fall of 2011, after Osama Bin Laden's death?

If you guys are lost I'll try to explain it better. Even though IW didn't have the foresight to know Osama Bin Laden would die in this year, its kinda funny how in terms of the CoD Universe, all attention is placed on the Terrorist Organisation/Militia Group OpFor. And according to the CoD Wiki, during CoD4, OpFor was a relatively new group, so apparently this is a new threat in the Middle East (Although I still have no idea why we go from Saudi Arabia in CoD4 to Afghanistan in MW2).

Isn't kinda ironic though how it actually makes sense?

I know that, but it is so wierd that IW picks 2011, and makes up a Terrorist Organization, and no mention of Ol' Shark Bait, and Shark Bait gets shot in that same year. I guess I'm reading too much into it. :p
