NO Bin Laden photos says Obama....

Im not surprised though, he talked it over with Hillary and they decided not to release them, thats a real shocker. I dont know about you, but Id like to see a few pics of the bastard dead. Release them to the public and let US decide if we want to look. They also think releasing the photos might make the Muslims mad and cause them to retaliate. Sooooo now we are scared of terrorists and making sure we dont do anything to upset them? What a joke.

Obama: I won't release bin Laden death photos - Political Hotsheet - CBS News

Quote:
In an interview with Steve Kroft for this Sunday's "60 Minutes" conducted today, President Obama said he won't release post-mortem images of Osama bin Laden taken to prove his death.

"It is important to make sure that very graphic photos of somebody who was shot in the head are not floating around as an incitement to additional violence or as a propaganda tool," said the president.

"We don't trot out this stuff as trophies," Mr. Obama added. "The fact of the matter is, this is somebody who was deserving of the justice that he received."

The president said he had discussed the issue with his intelligence team, including Defense Secretary Robert Gates and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, and that they agree with the decision. White House press secretary Jay Carney said Wednesday that Mr. Obama made the decision today.

In explaining his choice not to release the photo, Mr. Obama said that "we don't need to spike the football." He said that "given the graphic nature of these photos it would create a national security risk."

The president told Kroft he saw the photos following the raid on the compound and knew that bin Laden had been killed.

"We discussed this internally," he said. "Keep in mind that we are absolutely certain that this was him. We've done DNA sampling and testing. And so there is no doubt that we killed Osama bin Laden."

When Kroft noted that there are people in Pakistan and elsewhere who believe bin Laden is still alive, the president said "we we monitoring worldwide reaction."

"There is no doubt that Osama bin Laden is dead," he said. "Certainly there is no doubt among al Qaeda members that he is dead. So we don't think that a photograph in and of itself is going to make any difference."

"There are going to be some folks who deny it," he added. "The fact of the matter is, you will not see bin Laden walking on this earth again."

Video of the comments will appear on the CBS "Evening News" on Wednesday.

Re: NO Bin Laden photos says Obama....

It wouldn't matter if they made a coffee table size book.......... of nothing but photo's of a dead Bin Laden.

Many of the same people crying for "proof" now, would be the first to say the photo's were fake.




Besides, I'll bet photo's get leaked within a week.

So if Obama says its sunny out and I stick my head out the window and it's pouring rain, I should still believe Obama?

I don't doubt he's dead. In fact I think Osama's been dead for some time now..

Re: NO Bin Laden photos says Obama....

I firmly believe he is dead. I want to see a photo because some people say I'm a sadistic phuck. It will be something he can use as a distraction come reelection time. Thats just a theory so don't start all the "I can't believe you all are still complaining" crap.

Here's an idea though. If they would have traveled the country with the body charging $100 to piss on his head, how much money would they have raised? I know I would have gladly ponied up a bill for the chance.

Re: NO Bin Laden photos says Obama....

I don't think they should show it. If some Dutch cartoon or a Quran being burnt can put our men in more danger over there, then this sure as hell will. Screw that bearded bastard. Hes dead, lets let him stay dead and not become some martyr. The sharks have eaten his other eye out by now, lets leave it at that and move on to the next one in line.

Re: NO Bin Laden photos says Obama....

It would be in very poor taste. It would be very similar to these terrorists groups sending pictures out of their executions.

We need to be better than that.

While getting a great deal of satisfaction from the justice that was served, out of respect to those who died on Sept 11, I can not get a joyous feeling from this situation.
