'Bin Laden' Google Searches Increase 1 Million Percent (SCREENSHOT)

Google announced on its Twitter account today that Sunday night's searches for the term "Bin Laden" experienced a tremendous increase. The search giant saw an impressive 1 million percent increase Sunday night in searches for the name.
