TIME Magazine will be releasing a cover with a giant red “X” over the face of Osama bin Laden. The new issue, the third Time has published in a week, had editors pulling all nighters to push its newsstand date to Thursday and is increasing its print run for the 68 page issue.
The al Queda leader is the 4th person in TIME’s history to receive the “X” treatment.
Check out the other three TIME magazine cover boys that got the X Treatment after the jump.
