Skip to comments.Inhofe: ‘Gruesome’ photos reveal bin Laden in nothing but his underwear when shot

There has been a lot of speculation as to what the post-mortem photos of Osama bin Laden, that the Obama administration has refused to release, show. Member of Congress, however, are being allowed to view them at CIA Headquarters.
The first member of Congress to view them according to Fox Report anchor Shepard Smith was Oklahoma Republican Sen. James Inhofe. Inhofe appeared on Smiths show and told him that the photos are gruesome.
They are gruesome, of course, because it was taken right after the incident, he said. And so, of the 12, three of them were older pictures so that we could actually compare what he looked like when he had the black beard and what he looked like after he was killed. And that was part the good way of making that presentation. Then they had some of his ear. Now, what had happened in those, I couldnt tell whether the bullet went through the ear and out the eye cavity or through the eye and out the ear because a lot of brains were draped out from the socket. But it clearly what we saw there was it was him. There is no question he was dead. But, the more revealing pictures really were the ones on the USS Vinson and the North Arabian Sea.
Inhofe then revealed details about the photos that have not been made public yet that bin Laden was in his underwear at the time of his death.
See, the beard is a moving target because he dyes it all the time, Inhofe said. And the pictures we had older pictures had a black beard. His beard this time was a little bit shorter and it was more salt-and-pepper. You could tell its probably the actual color of the beard. Now, what he was dressed in, some of these were just headshots so you only had the head shot. Only two of them showed that he was partially, I would say you would call underwear on, that was about it.
Inhofe explained that despite some of the reports that his skull was partially gone, that was not the case based on his viewing of the photos.
It appeared that way at first, Inhofe said Then when you saw the other pictures later, you could tell it wasnt that way. Now, what happened was if the bullet went into the eye socket, then it was an explosive, it detonated once it was in so that caused the brain to come back out of the eye socket. Thats what made it look so gruesome.

No suicide vest?
Osama was wearing salwar kameez when he was killed: NYT
When US commandos found Osama bin Laden in the house in Abbottabad in Pakistan, he was wearing a ‘salwar kameez’ or what is known as a Pathan suit, and he resisted before he was shot above the left eye, the New York Times has reported.
As much as I like the Senator, he and the other folks in DC are NOT my betters.
I want to see the photos.
Mother always said to have clean underwear on because you never know when you’re going to be shot.
Well, I guess that would dispense with the administration’s “We had to shoot him because he might have been wearing a suicide vest” excuse. How much you wanna bet that is why they didn’t want to release these photos to the public?
Another of the seventy-two versions bites the dust.
So, all the people who have telling me that the SEALS had no excuse but to pump a couple of bullets into an unarmed man’s head because he might have been wearing a suicide vest can kiss my butt. The line goes out the door and around the block.
They shot this guy because that was the order. There was no self-defense justification.
Our government’s policy seems to be that if they want you dead bad enough, they can send soldiers into your bedroom and shoot you as you stand in your underwear. Duly noted.
Explosive 9mm projectiles? Why bother? Wouldn't an expanding 9mm HP [entering an eye socket] cause brain matter to find an exit: eye socket.
I don’t BELIEVE this. Does anyone in the Obama administration or Congress understand that national security requires they NOT blather about anything they think might get them the media attention they constantly crave? Did it occur to Senator Inhofe that members of the Religion of the Perpetually Offended are going to fly into their usual rage and start killing innocent people when this get this information?
I just hope Senator Inhofe didn’t hurt himself in his race to the first microphone he could find after seeing the pictures.
I am so disgusted.
Shot in his underware and brains came out of eye socket.
That's crazy talk. /sarc
“...bin Laden was in his underwear at the time of his death.”
Boxers or briefs?
But was he hiding a gun?
Wait til we get our Hanes on you.
And that was before "We can shoot you any time we want just because we want to" became official US government policy.
I couldnt tell whether the bullet went through the ear and out the eye cavity or through the eye and out the ear because a lot of brains were draped out from the socket.
Oh. My. God.
We have here, folks, another Magic Bullet!
No doubt fired from the Grassy Knoll.
In bin Laden's case, I wouldn't have cared if they brought along a turkey fryer, fired it up and dunked him headfirst into it.
You are picking the wrong fight here. Congress authorized lethal force against bin Laden long ago.
Nope. Unarmed in his underwear standing in his own bedroom. Deader ‘n hell.
“Shot in his underware and brains came out of eye socket.”
He was shot in his underwear?
Now that’s hitting below the belt.
