It is now being reported that President Obama has decided not to release the death photos of terrorist master mind Osama bin Laden.
The news was broken by CBS in a Tweet:
They also linked to an article of theirs, written just minutes before, explaining that the President would not release the photos. They quoted the President as saying:
"The risks of release outweigh the benefits. Conspiracy theorists around the world will just claim the photos are doctored anyway, and there is a real risk that releasing the photos will only serve to inflame public opinion in the Middle East. Imagine how the American people would react if Al Qaida killed one of our troops or military leaders, and put photos of the body on the internet. Osama bin Laden is not a trophy - he is dead and let's now focus on continuing the fight until Al Qaida has been eliminated."
This is surprising news, considering that yesterday out-going CIA director Leon Panetta stated that he thought the pictures would be released.
Why should we care about public opinion in the Middle East? We already know that there are many over there that don’t like us.
Obama is a pussy.
Release the photos.
Somehow the pic will leak onto the Internet.
Somebody over there has a copy on a flashdrive or SD card.
Sorry Obastard, but I don’t believe you got actually Bin Laden without a photo. This was all a ploy to try to firm up your sagging poll numbers. You damned fraud.
But you WILL release 2,000+ ‘prisoner abuse’ photos...
“Osama is not a trophy”
Right... and the Twin Towers assault was not symbolic.
I think “O” can file this under ‘how NOT to be re elected’
He’s doing this to drive people nuts.
I dont know what is worse, a president who releases tons of “abuse” photos but refuses to release one photo of our worst enemy, OR the legion of obamabots who will champion this pandering to islam. we are so screwed!
...AND photos of the bodies for all mentioned in his hard drives!
Time for a thorough house cleaning!
This is what you get when Osama Obama gets backed into the corner to kill Osama. And Osama Obama - I’m not going to release the Osama dead pictures.
Paging Mr. Assange ... Mr. Julian Assange.....
If? Obama's not exactly Mr Current Events, now is he?
A patriot within the Agency will flashdrive it out into the public. They will not be able to stop it.
Just a matter of time. Probably somebody near retirement...and disgusted with this person in the Oval Office. My prediction.
Play all the games you want; we still know that gas prices and food prices are continuing to rise...
Osama is a trophy ONLY to Obama, he will milk this for all its worth til its election day.
0bama is a LIAR.
Why should we believe him?
Release the photos.
Any doubt about Obama being a Muzzie??
If Osama isn’t a trophy, then why did the Obama administration spend 24 hours telling elaborate and wildly inaccurate fish stories after the raid?
