I saw a news report this morning in which the anchor interviewed a local newspaper reporter who happens to cover the Middle East.
She said that she’s spoken to numerous people there who are skeptical about the Bin Laden death because they haven’t seen photos. In the cases of Saddam’s sons and Zarquawi, the official photos were released immediately; since there is a delay in Bin Laden’s case it only fuels greater suspicion.
This delay already has made it difficult to believe any photos released would be real.
I’m fast coming to the idea it’s not a good idea NOW...too late. They know the public handled Saddams sons....and the fallout from releasing them.
It’s known in the ME “stories” go with the culture. It won’t matter if they are or aren’t published. They will simply design their own story around it...and likely say anything out there is a fake.
