    I've always thought one of the main inaccuracies of CSI type tv shows was DNA results being back in a day or two & now we have the White House claiming Bin Laden DNA results were back on I believe Tuesday. Is this really possible?

    Because you're generally a low priority customer seeking a service from a small group with other projects already before them. The process itself is relatively fast.

    "There are some people who still believe Elvis will be found riding Shergar."
    Comment made by British PM Cameron on conspiracy theorists.
    I suppose it will be impossible to keep them away from the death of Bin Laden.

    I have worked for years as a Forensic Scientist. DNA results take about a day, give or take. Report writing and several layers of review is what takes most of the time.
